Afternoon! Hope everybody’s Wednesday is going fabulously. Mine’s been just fine… although I’ve only been up for three hours or so.
I didn’t really let my breakfast digest before lunch, but it was either eat now or wait until 4 and I didn’t want another day of tummy rumbling like yesterday.
The cabbage wraps pleased me so much yesterday that I decided to make some again! Today I stuffed two leaves with Lemon Pepper Bulgur Salad with Seitan, Grape Tomatoes & Mozzarella.
Lemon Pepper Bulgur Salad with Seitan, Grape Tomatoes & Mozzarella
- 1 cup pre-cooked bulgur
- 1/2 cup (ish) seitan
- handful of grape tomatoes
- 1 slice mozzarella cheese
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together until lemon and pepper are well-blended. Microwave on HIGH about 1 minute, or until cheese has started to melt. Spoon into lettuce leaves and enjoy!
There was some left in the fridge that I went back to finish off while watching part of Reservation Road. Has anyone seen this movie? It is so sad that I don’t think I could stand it for much more than 20 minutes or so at a time. Anywho, I think a common misconception I have, and maybe some of you do, too, is that when I’m eating CF or foods that have a stellar nutrition score, I think I need to eat a lot more of it than I would with “regular” food. I’m feeling a wee uncomfortable, in terms of fullness, so I wish I would have waited a few minutes to see if I really wanted seconds!
I based my “lunch dessert” off a snack Sarah made yesterday. She blended pumpkin and cottage cheese together until smooth; I’m lazy and still haven’t washed the blender from breakfast, so I just mushed ’em all together. I also added agave and cinnamon.
This was SO good. It definitely felt very dessert-y and I might even bring it to class tonight! Speaking of which, tonight will be the true CFW test: I have the night class that my prof always brings cupcakes to. I have some tricks up my sleeve, though…
Enjoy the rest of your day!
