It’s a good thing I always maintain such a well-stocked freezer! I remembered that I had made an extra chickpea cutlet a few weeks ago and stashed it in the freezer for times such as these. Perfect! I heated it up in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or so and topped it with the same agave-dijon sauce that I made with the original. All the sauce is is equal parts agave nectar and whole grain dijon mustard and, man, does it ever taste good! I also steamed up some cauliflower and sugar snap peas and made brown rice for a complete and balanced meal. I’m glad I spent my money today at the store to buy more fresh veggies instead of novelty items. You can do so much with veggies and, as my mom used to tell me growing up, you always should have something green on your plate at night! It’s funny how that always stuck with me! Buying a variety of veggies also eases mid-week boredom with the same old salad. I can’t wait til I am able to plant my own vegetable garden in my future house so I can really eat with the seasons and enjoy fresh veggies all year round!
I’m bringing a Kashi cookie (happy trails) with me to school tonight to have for a snack later. I used to eat a ton of these in college and really like them…especially the dark chocolate variety. They make for a healthy treat that actually is pretty satisfying because of the protein and whole grains used. I’m not exactly sure what is on tap for baking tonight so I guess tomorrow’s pictures will be a surprise!
