Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Last week I did not eat any peanut butter! I told myself I wouldn't eat it for one week, at least, until I weaned from eating it and I did it! 

This week, I am not having soy milk, but switching to almond milk, instead! (I really like my morning oatmeal kinda milky ;-)

I bought this stalk of Brussels sprouts for the whole week
Some of the ingredients we needed for tonight's dinner: pasta and salad

For vegetables in our dinner tonight I wanted to grill eggplant. But to my surprise, upon cutting slices this NASTY worm came out of that little hole! I screamed because it was soo gross!!! 
My biggest fear are worms, and yeah, we never ate this organic eggplant because that little worm was just my luck, yuck! Since I eat so many plants, I know I am bound to meet these creepy crawlers more often than not...Well, that is a risk I'm willing to take! :/

It took me a while to figure out what to do with that little worm-- I was just screaming! Then I managed to compose myself and throw the egg plant in the garbage disposal and turn it on!

I let a few minutes pass until I calmed down. Bret came home at 7pm and we both finished preparing dinner and we sat down to eat. So here is tonight's dinner plate: 
  • Whole wheat pasta with grilled veggies (onions, garlic, yellow squash, mushrooms and carrots) topped with marinara sauce; 
  • greens topped with artichoke hearts, olives and white balsamic vinegar; and 
  • baked Brussels spouts with vegan butter, garlic and lemon pepper. 
 Of course I had to add red chili flakes for flavor! :) Have a good night, I'm off to bed!
