A Busy Meatless Monday
Hey friends Late post for me tonight! Today was an incredibly busy day, but I look forward to my time blogging each night, so I fit it in when I can Luckily I had one of the best sleeps of life last night, so I am not too tired while writing this post
I started my Meatless Monday off with a new to me oatmeal mix which turned out incredibly tasty
I threw pineapple into my steel cut oats while cooking them in almond milk Mmmm, such a sweet breakfast! It was great, though. I enjoyed this with a side of eggies, too
I was at school by 8:00 am this morning and began class at 8:30. I always look forward to Monday morning class. It is my Dietary Assessment class and it is so interesting and pretty hands on for being a lecture, so I love it! I learn so much better when doing compared to just being lectured to or reading something out of a textbook.
Even though midterms ended, I am still really busy. I think I am even busier if that is even possible? It seems as though I always long for midterms to be over, but forget that after midterms school gets even crazier because suddenly all of the due dates for assignments start approaching and the assigned readings for every class seem to be piled on thicker and thicker.
I met with my professor today and discussed the blog I am creating. We are so excited to have it up and running soon! She gave me a list of all of the executive members of LHEA, so that will be the first thing that I enter into the blog.
I also met with two different groups today for two different assignments. My program is all about working as a team since interdisciplinary work is so important within health care; therefore, each class I am in seems to have some type of group project.
One of my meetings took place over the lunch hour while the other didn’t start until 6:00 pm. Luckily, the later of the two did not go very long, so I got to treat myself to something special tonight
I have been dying to try either hot yoga or hot pilates at my gym ever since I saw that they were offered! Tonight was finally my night to test it out, so tomorrow I will definitely be discussing it with you Tonight; however, is being fully dedicated to my wonderful Meatless Monday meal that I seriously have enjoyed four times in a row since I created it Like I have mentioned in previous posts, I like variety, so sticking with the same meal day after day is not like me, but you know it’s a good recipe when I repeat it over and over again (especially on consecutive days! )
Edamame Bean Coleslaw with Miso Ginger Dressing
1 cup coleslaw mix
2/3 cup shelled edamame beans, steamed or boiled
1/2 – 1 red bell pepper, diced
1 TBSP miso paste
1 tsp ginger, minced or pureed
Combine first three ingredients in bowl. In a seperate bowl, combine miso and ginger. Mix well. Add sesame oil to thin out. Toss salad in dressing.
This is an exceptional salad I love it because it is light and clearly, I didn’t get bored with it I made a few variations of dressings, but the one I shared was my favourite. For a lighter version, you can thin out the dressing with some water; that worked well, too! I also tried soya sauce, but found it much too salty since miso paste is salty to begin with! I definitely did not repeat that dressing!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Meatless Monday I know I did I received oodles of comments after last night’s post and, once again, am grateful for each and everyone of them All of you should know that you are truly wonderful individuals Thank you for being my bloggy friends! I hope to meet you some day Blogger convention perhaps!? I am not that far from the US border and I also know a pretty sweet girl who is only two hours away from me Maybe we could car pool! Haha!
Sweet dreams to all of you! I can’t wait to chat about hot yoga tomorrow
Since I was at school all day today, I hauled a ton of stuff with me…
Ok, a ton of food (food is obviously more important than school work, am I right or am I right?)
2 coolers (one with mid-morning meal and lunch, the other with mid-afternoon snack and dinner)
1 school bag (textbooks, binders, laptop; the usual)
I seriously think this weighed more than two of me.
So, today I was thankful for having my car I am so lucky
