Today is one of those days I wish someone served me breakfast in bed. A big bowl of ibuprofen laden oatmeal. If I were Sam on “Bewitched”, today would be the day I’d say “To Hell with Darren, I’m using my magic all.damn.day”. Also, I don’t think Darren should have squelched her magic. First; their house could’ve been beyond awesome, second; they’d have never been in unfortunate situations like being over or underdressed to a party, (just wear trench coats, see what everyone else is wearing, and wiggle your nose to match! This is also a famous “Bewitched” episode.) Third; he just didn’t want her to reach her full potential. DOWN WITH THE MAN!!
Where am I going with this? Last night, AFTER my PR speedwork (more on that in my post this afternoon), AFTER my kick-ass bodypump class of doom, AFTER making dough for no-bakes, I slipped getting into bed. How the hell do you slip getting into bed? I wasn’t wearing 6″ heels or oil wrestling!! I was climbing into bed, in my jams, with my bottle of seltzer. Unfortunately, at the very same time, a particularly large bitch decided to bump into me to find the perfect, cozy spot on the rug. I jerked to avoid the tv and twisted the hell out of something. Now, I’m barely able to type out my “What I Ate Wednesday”!! (thanks, Jenn!!!)
Yesterday’s breakfast was pretty much like every breakfast I have-oatmeal. These were overnight oats, almost identical to this recipe, save for the banana-mine weren’t green anymore, therefore, not appealing to me.
Lunch was fantastic I used the leftover roast green beans and potatoes from Monday’s dinner, added a hardboiled egg, greens, feta, and homemade dressing, and it was a terrific salad.
Do you see how those egg yolks are a perfect, sunny yellow? It’s not because of photoshop, it’s because I didn’t over-cook them. Find the recipe here.
Dinner, OH dinner. I had no idea what to eat. I wandered around, I searched my house for ideas, banged my head up against a few walls, and then finally, asked the Captain. His response was a familiar one. “I want Chinese food.” This, and pizza or sushi, is his stock answer. Luckily, I had some leftover roast chicken and Trader Joe’s frozen multi-grain rice in the house to fill such a request.
I give you, HEALTHY chicken fried rice.
- 2 cups multigrain rice
- half of one onion or 6 scallions
- 1 cup sliced carrots
- 14 baby bella mushrooms, sliced thin
- 1 head of broccoli, trimmed
- 1 T canola oil, divided into 3 teaspoons
- 1 t sesame oil
- 1 T lower sodium oyster sauce
- 1 T low sodium soy sauce
- 1 T chopped garlic
- 2 t chopped ginger
- 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- sriracha to taste
- blanch the broccoli LIGHTLY in boiling water and then shock in ice water, set aside
- in a LARGE, SEASONED wok, heat one tsp canola oil on HIGH.
- toss in onion, carrot, and mushrooms
- cook until softened, remove and set aside
- heat remaining 2 tsps of canola oil and one tsp of sesame oil in wok on medium
- toss in ginger and garlic, carefully not to burn
- toss in rice and toss rapidly, turn heat to high
- after the rice smells "toasted" push it up to the sides
- drop in egg into center of wok and toss until cooked
- add in all the vegetables, including broccoli, toss
- add in oyster sauce, soy sauce and sriracha-toss
- serve hot.
Please make this, it’s so good and so easy, and SO much healthier than what you get at restaurants and take out joints.
Stay tuned later this afternoon for the story of my PR!!!!!!
