Hello Greenies! It’s a sunny and chilly Saturday here in Denver, and I watching the movie Penelope and eating a muy delicioso breakfast sandwich. I’ve been working a lot and eating a lot and having some fun in the past week since I’ve checked in, so here’s a quick rundown.
Again, always in search of ways to incorporate mexican food into my diet yet keep things on the slim…Here is my “Mexican Slaw” I chopped up spinach, tomatoes, stoplight peppers and broccoli and then tossed with a “dressing” of hummus and salsa.
I ate this side salad with my latest obsession, Quorn Southwestern “wings”
I also had a package of whole wheat pitas to finish off, so I toasted them in the oven, slathered with hummus and Avo and went to town..
The weather was 60 degree plus for 2 glorious days this week (It’s now 19 and snowing…) so I had to dine Al Fresco at my favorite lunch spot, Vert. Check out this goodness: Quinoa Salad, Roasted Cauliflower and Asian Peanut Slaw with two crusty french bread slices. Heaven I tell you!
I’ve also discovered Spinach Spaghetti which I’ve made a few times this week. It cooks really quickly and has a lovely texture and flavor. It’s great tossed with garlic, smart balance “butter” and vegetables. I put two oven roasted and seasoned tomatoes on top, which when broken up make for a nice light sauce. And yes, that’s a healthy shake of parmesan cheese on top.
In other Green news, St. Patrick’s Day was Wednesday, which means I encountered many drunk people downtown on my lunch break… I chose to celebrate this holiday by running a “Lucky 7k”, Denver’s Running of the Green. It was a hilly course and frankly it wore me out! But the Killian’s were a-flowin post race, and I also enjoyed a giant vegetable with guacamole burrito. I loved how everyone dressed up for this race!
