I really should have worked out this morning when I had the chance because now I don’t have time before school and I’ve just been sitting all day long at my job and feel a little stir-crazy. I’m sure all that will come to an end though once I get in the kitchen tonight! We are making pound cake and more muffins I believe, and tomorrow night is my second practical! I’m all out of tofurky so I just packed a simple pb&j sandwich on Ezekiel bread for lunch with pear slices. It filled me up (that and about a gallon of decaf green tea I’ve been sipping on all day long because I’ve been SO freezing all day!!!) for a couple hours til I broke into my afternoon snack I brought: Luna Tea Cake. YUM! I am in love with these. I turned my mom onto them as well and now she is addicted to! I hated luna bars but love these…so good..the texture is the best. But yeah…then I got home around 4:15 and I was starving! I dug into the bag of veggie crisps and ate a handful while I thought about dinner.
I decided to save my last black bean burger for tomorrow’s lunch and finish the rest of the chickpeas tonight so I wouldn’t have to throw them away. Inspired by another blog I read, Romina’s last post on “pasta e ceci” really sounded good tonight….extra good because I get to use my leftovers instead of wasting them! I hate to waste good food. It’s chilly outside and I wanted something warm before I headed off to school. So…I made just that! Pasta and chickpeas! I used about 2.5 ounces of whole wheat spaghetti, some organic tomato sauce (spiked with red pepper flakes!) and about 1/2 cup of chickpeas…on top I sprinkled a little bit of nooch (nutritional yeast) for some more flavor/nutrition. The result is a great combo filled with protein and whole grains. I made another big salad on the side.
Yay for tomorrow being Friday–I can’t wait for the weekend! 🙂
Simple, fast and FILLING! Love it!
