Hey ya’ll! Welcome to the best day of the week, WIAW. Hosted by the one of the sweetest hosts Jenn. Today is super special for some reason. It must be the WIAW magic going on, but I have been so happy. For one, I created a tumblr. Hahaha. Yes, I’m a dork, but I really like just having a thing of pictures. Check it out or follow me, Functional Foodie. In other news, I got on the Dean’s list at school for making a 4.0. Success. Also, I’m going to be assisting my functional foods professor in research with tomatoes and broccoli on prostate cancer. Even better is that she said I could focus on the inflammation part of the research since I have arthritis and that is what I’m interested in studying in. MORE news is that I am going to apply for a research grant to start up my own research about arthritis. Oh yessssssss. Oh and I am going to apply for some scholarships and hopefully I get them. Did I mention that I won 200$ to Lulu Lemon. God I’m fantastic. Enough about me, let us get back to the real reason you came to my blog, the food.
Mmmmm. A veggie omelet for breakfast. I have been loving the switch to eating vegetarian. It actually isn’t hard, so I don’t know why more people don’t do it. The benefits outweigh the juiciness of meat. This omelet has the best melty cheese in it. I was impressed with my omelet making skills at 6:30 am. Way to go Lindsay! The omelet had green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and low fat mexican cheese. Soooo goood. Definitely the best thing to eat before going to the gym and then heading to my Food Systems and Management class.
This was the best sandwich combination EVER. First layer was PB2 peanut butter. Then on top of that was a few slices of banana. Next were a couple of sliced strawberries. To finish it off there was an organic raspberry jam. Perfection. Not only is it tasty, but it was also really filling. I’m going to have to eat this now ALL THE TIME. Must invest in some more jam because that was the last of it. I’m going to bust out this sandwich in all kind of flavors. I wonder what will be the best combo?
For dinner, it was tofu. What could I just throw together really quickly? Hmm stir fry? Yes with spicy peanut sauce? OH YES. First I chopped up all my tofu into small cubes. Yeah it made a lot of tofu. Barely fit into the pan. I sprayed the pan with some cooking spray and cooked the tofu until it was brown on all sides. I like my tofu sort of crispy.
I then threw in some broccoli and chopped onions to the mix. Cooked those for a few minutes in the pan and then added the special sauce. My sauced contained PB2, soy sauce, spicy asian sauce, ketchup, and a small amount of brown sugar. It was epic. I cooked it for a couple of more minutes and I was ready to eat. I was hoping that it wasn’t too spicy because sometimes I have problems with the asian sauce and overloading too much in the pan.
Luckily it wasn’t too spicy. Sorry for the dark picture. I was in my room watching 30 rock and realized I needed to take a picture of my plate. It was really delicious though. I definitely am going to have to actually put some real effort into perfecting this recipe, so I can share it with ya’ll. Luckily I just bought two more packages of tofu!
Dessert! Seriously the best time of the day. Why are these vitatops soooo freaking expensive because they are so delicious. I want to try more flavors, but it is impossible to find more than just the chocolate one where I am. I’m probably going to go on the hunt for some this weekend. Oh yeah. I live a real exciting life. Anyways, I had the chocolate one and topped it with sliced strawberries and whipcream. I really know how to treat myself. Oh I’m fancy huh. So good.
Anyways, I’m going to go back to celebrating my awesomeness and watch more episodes of 30 Rock!
Anything good happen to you lately?
Do you watch 30 rock?
