I tried to make a quiche with an almond crust the other day. That didn’t turn out too well, but the filling was scrumptious with wilted arugula, mushrooms, and creamy garlic-herb goat cheese. So basically I had frittata with smooshed almond meal crust on the side. Don’t you just love having mushy garlicky almond crust with your eggs?
This quick and easy dinner was a success! I mixed leftover cubed squash with beans, corn, mushrooms, and scallions before baking it with cheddar on top. Served with avocado.
Whipped banana oatmeal with fresh and amazing blackberries and hearty granola.
Enchiladas never get old to me! This was made with green tomatillo sauce, sweet potatoes, and lots of black beans and old cheddar.
A random stuffed squash with quinoa stir-fry. Weird, I know… but delicious! Have you ever had stuffed squash? I made this acorn squash with butter, spinach, goat cheese, and parmesan. It was super yummy.
Speaking of super yummy, you guys need to give butternut squash mac and cheese a try. This dish was creamy, cheesy, and satisfied by craving for warm comfort food.
Leftovers the next day (yup I ate the whole dish in two servings).
And some tofu curry with eggplant, peppers, spinach, and cashews. Lime wedges, too, which I’m glad I used because they went black and moldy the next day.
Believe it. More enchiladas. More beans.
And again. Sorry, it was finals week. 😉
Simple oatmeal with a scattering of chocolate chips and crunchy granola. Chopped pear cooked inside.
A huge batch of granola was made and devoured while FaceTiming Grandma, who lived in the Wei home for a couple weeks after her surgery. Now Grandma’s feeling a lot better and moved from Coquitlam back to her apartment in Burnaby. But it was nice to FaceTime her every day!
Ooey, gooey brie and goat cheese vegetable sandwich with heaps of kale pesto.
Repeat dinner. I promise this is the last of beans you’ll see.
Pink raspberry oats with crushed sunbutter cookie dough ball and cashews.
Oh sorry, I lied about the beans. THIS is the last you’ll see of them. I swear. Yes, I made about 3 batches of enchiladas in the last month. Oh my.
This dinner looks like one of those “divide your plate like this” pictures. The fish was so freaking good with butter, cayenne, paprika, and garlic. Roasted veggies and rice with a spoonful of Madhulika’s (roommate) Israeli couscous.
Banana oatmeal with a hearty square of coconut flour banana bread with chocolate chips. See my last post for the recipe!
Microwaved a square of lasagna one night (thawed overnight in the freezer) with some wilted spinach. Who’s got time to
cook wash a sink full of dishes? Well, I kind of do. But not during finals week.
You’re not seeing double and I swear this was a different day 🙂 Different plate, same sandwich. Brie, get in my mouth ASAP.
Another day I made a dish full of quinoa vegetable “mac and cheese”. Loaded with carrots and broccoli, this warming supper was truly delicious and mostly guilt-free. Because, quinoa.
Now that finals are over, I’ve been doing lots of volunteering! Here’s the schedule:
- MONDAY: 8:00 to 11:00 doing Patient Registration at the Grand River Hospital, afternoon at Waterloo Sports Medicine Physiotherapy (I gave two ultrasounds on my first day – it was super fun!)
- TUESDAY: Morning at Waterloo Sports Medicine Physiotherapy
- WEDNESDAY: Morning as a fitness assistant at Parkwood Senior Home, afternoon meeting with Peer Health Education team
- THURSDAY: Morning at KidsAbility School for autistic children
- FRIDAY: Morning as a fitness assistant at Parkwood Senior Home
- Weekends are spent either at Community of Hearts Yoga for Yoga Teacher Training OR relaxing (eat + groceries + eat + yoga + eat).
Soon I will have aerial silks lessons on Thursday evenings! I couldn’t be more excited to get back on the silks after a whole year away. And… acro yoga twice a week! MY FAVOURITE.
Also see how I mostly just volunteer in the mornings? That’s because I like to cook, nap, cook, then do yoga in the afternoons. And eat, of course. 😉
I put the mat outside my room so I can work on some poses! The side crow is my new challenge. Also, check out my school’s fitness schedule. Isn’t it wonderful!? I can’t wait to try some of the new classes.
That’s it for today…
What do you think of these?
Okie, that’s really it. Have a great afternoon, everyone!
