Well, my Mexican Lasagna was a bit hit! Everyone loved it (especially me—I had seconds!) and I was glad I was able to show people good tasting veggie food because of course don’t we all get the same question over and over, “but what do you eat?!” Here’s what I eat! Real food! Whole grains, beans, veggies, fruits and nuts…foods that fuel you 🙂
Dinner was great~~ there was a TON of food but here’s what I loaded my plate up with:
A baked sweet potato
a ton of roasted asparagus (I roasted them with olive oil and sea salt at 400 for 20 minutes)
about a serving and a half of mexican lasagna
a glass of red wine
A green salad
I highly recommend making this “lasagna”, if you could even call it that. It was so easy to put together–it only took me 10 minutes then I just stuck it in the oven! I topped it with some grated FYH mozzarella cheese and reheated it again at Ryan’s parent’s house. Delish!
We got home late, around 10:30, and since I didn’t have birthday cake after dinner, I indulged in 2 1/2 super-charge me cookies (well, they are SO small!!!). I’m all set for bed now after my little treat! (I def. gobbled these down too fast to snap a photo—oops).
While I was cooking this afternoon I made a smoothie. I used 1/2 cup of almond milk with about a half cup of blueberries and half a frozen banana. I also added in about a tbsp of ground flax. Pretty and purple!
