Sorry I missed you guys on Monday. It’s going to be a hectic semester, and it looks like I may not be able to post quite as regularly on the Week in Reviews, especially since I’ve been wanting to focus on a few more recipes and recovery-oriented posts.
As I mentioned in a recent post, I’ve been trying to do more savory breakfasts. My sweetie and I had Kat’s Pesto and Egg Power Bowls for breakfast on Sunday.
I think of quinoa as hard to cook, but it’s not any harder than oatmeal–it just takes about 8 minutes longer. I loved topping it with the egg and roasted red pepper!
I made a Whole Foods run one night after work–it’s right on the bus route home from campus. I didn’t have much to eat at home, so I grabbed some tofu, pepper, mushrooms, and rice ramen for a quick ramen noodle soup.
I had lots of tofu leftover, so a few days later, I made a tofu stir fry from Dianne Benjamin’s Low-FODMAP Cookbook!
My sweetheart stayed the weekend, and so the stir fry was gone pretty quickly. Food disappears more quickly with boyfriends around.
One of my favorite quick meals: a salmon burger on a gluten-free bun with mayonnaise. Here I added a roasted red bell pepper. Broccoli on the side.
I’ve still been working through this yummy Fit Foodie Finds Green Goddess Dip. The more I eat it, the more I like it! Plus, if you just omit the garlic and use garlic-infused oil in place of the olive oil, it’s low-FODMAP too!
How can I forget Super Bowl Sunday? For the game, my friends and I headed to a sports bar, and I helped put a dent in these nachos and chowed on a few BBQ wings, as well.
I was actually rooting for a team for the first time in my Super Bowl life: the Patriots, in support of my roommate, who’s from the Boston area. It was probably the most exciting football game I’ve ever watched, and definitely a good game to be a Pats fan. 😉
Last but not least, I love this chai pudding I posted on Saturday. It’s my favorite dessert recipe I’ve posted to the blog so far. I’ll be making it many more times, for sure.
Do you have strong feelings about ramen? (Love it? Hate it?)
How ’bout them Pats?
