Still mostly eating in vs going out to eat (with the exception of the last week where I was traveling). I’ve been largely batch cooking on the weekends and eating leftovers through the week.
I’m still doing a lot of the Happy Herbivore meals, but have had a few fun ones thrown in. Like this one!
Crissie’s Kitchen Sink Red Thai Curry
- 1 packaged extra firm tofu, drained, pressed, and cubed
- 1 head broccoli, chopped into small florets
- 4 carrots, diced large
- 1 red bell pepper, diced large
- 1/2 onion, diced large
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup frozen green beans
- 1 can lite coconut milk
- 2 tbsp. red Thai curry powder or paste (brand of your choosing, I order from The Spice House)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tsp minced ginger root
- Line a large skillet with a small amount of water and heat on medium high
- add onion, garlic, and ginger. Sautee for 3-4 minutes, until soft
- add carrots and bell pepper. Sautee for 5 minutes, stirring often
- Add can of coconut milk + 1/2 can of water, tofu, and broccoli, and peas
- Bring to a boil, cover, reduce to low, and simmer for 10-15 minutes
Serve over rice, quinoa, or any other grain of choice (or plain, like I had it! More soup than stir fry).
I used up all the veggies I had lying around (I was heading out on a week-long trip, so that was important), and the fun thing with curries, is you can use whatever you have. Cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts, corn, etc. Doesn’t matter – it’s all yummy!
I ate leftovers over quinoa I had batched cooked over the weekend
Some other homemade eats
And my awesome eats from Ethos Vegan Kitchen in Orlando, Epcot, and Florida in general!
Well, after finally reading about it for months, I broke down and bought Beach Body on Demand. It’s honestly been awesome. I’m working out every day either in my bedroom or my hotel. Plus runs of course!
Been a busy, but great two weeks. New (and final) term for grad school started! Lot’s of focus on entrepreneurial processes, and it’s been really interesting so far. As much an art as a business science.
R had her second peanut flour updose! She’s now at 6% of 1 peanut. Words cannot express how proud I am of her for doing this. Her bravery shocks me – she knows how life threatening her peanut allergy is, yet this treatment protocol, if successful, will forever alter her life and take away that fear. The process is a bit anxiety producing though.
I went to a conference for work in Orlando. It was a really good show, but my favorite is always the volunteer work with military veterans who have recently or are soon to be transitioning. It’s less about healthcare IT specifically and more about the culture shock. For those in a long time, it’s learning to STOP using some language and terminology that doesn’t translate into the corporate world and to understand leadership nuance differences (such as people don’t do what you tell them just because you tell them!). Nothing like that existed when I transitioned out of the Navy, so I love doing this for others.
I also took a side trip to Epcot and had a great time. And while it was a great trip, the happiest place on earth is really just being back home!
Other than that, it’s been pretty typical. Family, work, school, rinse, repeat.
And some extra pics of stuff, morning pictures, and fluffy buddies!
Have a great weekend!!
