But not quite.
I woke up early today, but only by clock standards. It was nice to feel like I had extra time this morning but as soon as the sun went down I realized how depressing it is for it to be pitch black at 5:30. Since breakfast time felt leisurely, I actually took the time to cook my oatmeal, rather than eat cold, presoaked oats.
Although I actually prefer soaked oats because I like my oats drier than this, this sure was creamy. Quick steel cut oats cooked with pumpkin and almond butter, banana, and fig jam.
Lunch was a cabbage/cauli bowl mixed with Hannah's samosa filling and a couple cubes of tofu:
Rose, thanks for the soy yogurt idea. This bowl was a little less hot than last night due to the potatoes and tofu, but that's all gone now and I imagine soy yogurt would be great on top of the rest of the cauliflower.
And dinner, a salad that reminded me of tabbouleh, if the ingredients were super chunk sized:
This is spelt berry (rather than bulgur) based. I added white beans for protein, chopped tomato, garlic, onion, and zucchini (rather than cucumber.) I didn't have any parsley, though that would have been most welcome, as would some chopped black olives. After mixing all the ingredients together, I tossed it with lemon juice, a bit of balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
I liked this a lot. It was really filling as well as chewy and nutty from the spelt berries. Those were leftover from a MoFo recipe, but I may buy them more often now.
So, what did you do with your extra hour today?
