Meal Plan #4: Quinoa, Kale, and Chicken Sausage
Good afternoon all!
Today has been full of moving. I think this is the first time I’ve sat down, other than breakfast.
My day started with a Step II Class with my Dad. After class, I went for a 2 hour walk around and around downtown Ventura and to the beach. I stopped for a soy-latte too, all while chatting with my sweet friend Simi on the phone.
It’s kind of fun that I’m getting here later today, because now I get to share with you yesterdays eats and a bit of today’s. Usually, you don’t see my Friday eats since I don’t post on Saturdays.
Yesterday started with a one hour beach walk with a Client of mine (Always Ashten), whose Birthday Party I get to be apart of tonight! Of course, soy lattes for the walk 🙂
Breakfast was this handful of blueberries, and then…
This scramble (eggs, potato, bell pepper, onion, spinach, and pepper plant), and then…
This small piece of toast with Strawberry Jelly.
Story: I started making breakfast (scramble) and realized we only had 1 egg. That wasn’t going to work for me, so I grabbed a handful of blueberries, ran down the market and bought eggs. I came home, made my scramble and wanted toast with it, but *thought* the eggs with potato would be enough. After I finished, I still wanted toast/jelly so I made a small piece 🙂
Do you see how beautiful the beach was yesterday? View from our balcony.
For lunch I made a Green Smoothie with added blueberries and strawberries. So yummy!
In the afternoon I cut up lot’s veggies and lettuce that I had in my fridge. If I don’t prep it, I won’t use it! I snacked on one carrot stick and one celery with peanut butter as I was chopping everything up
I got off work early yesterday, 3:00pm. Two of my Clients rescheduled, and it gave me a great break in the day. At 3:00, Marco and I went to the Gym together, and then came home and went to the pool with friends. Around 6:30/7:00 we came back home and I made us such a yummy dinner!
Kale, Quinoa, and Chicken Sausage (#4 on this weeks Meal Plan): in a large pot, sauté onions, garlic, and sliced bell pepper. Add an entire bag of chopped kale and cover. Once the kale cooks down, add in pre-cooked slice organic chicken sausages (thanks Maria!). Once everything has cooked together (and cooked down a lot) add in pre-cooked/warmed quinoa. Mix everything together, add sea-salt and pepper, and ENJOY! (Season as you’d like)
I couldn’t wait to have leftovers of this today!
As we watched Weed’s last night, I really wanted a crunchy snack. First thought was chips & salsa, second thought was “oh! You cut up all of those fresh crunch veggies!” So, I went with the 2nd and was totally happy 🙂
At 6:30 this morning I had eggs & toast with Marco.
I went to Step II at 8:30 with Dad.
At 10:00 when I got home I had leftovers from last night. So friggin’ good!
After this, I walked for two hours while on the phone with my friend Simi.
I came home, showered off, and made a Green Smoothie with added Blueberries. Yum!
That’s all I’ve got for you today! Tonight, Marco and I are going on a dinner date before Ashten’s Birthday! I think we’ll land ourselves at Lure, where I’ll oder sautéed spinach, seared Ahi, and a potato cake. Ah, I can’t wait!
I’ll see you all here Monday 🙂
