Thrown Together

I've been sort of throwing food together fast with little prep recently.  I decided I am totally down with Fava Beans! I also raced!
As Leftovers!
They are like giant more flavorful peas and really fun to eat for some reason.  For lunch the next day my steamed favas combined with other steamed vegetables made a great easy lunch wrap.
  • Steamed Fava Beas, Squash, Yellow Carrot,
  • Some Spring Mix Salad/Cucumber/Avocado
  • Tahini, Braggs 24 Herb Seasoning, Sea Salt and Pepper
  • Amy's Salsa
The Bragg's Seasoning I got is such a great fast meal saver.
For Dinner
When I originally prepared them: with a bunch of steamed vegetables and salmon. A delicious wrap combo for sure.  I could eat them plain but some tahini and herbs go even better.  
  • Salmon Saúte with Olive Oil and Parsley
  • Steamed Purple Onion, Squash, Fava Beans, Yellow Carrot
  • Baked Sweet Potato and Brown Rice/Lentils
  • Some Tomato
  • Braggs 24 Herb Seasoning and 
After adapting to eating yogurt in order to consume mass amounts of Muesli in Germany, i'm stoked on introducing  Non fat greek yogurt back in to my diet. I  just won't have it in the morning before training/racing (mucous forming).  I just discovered it is so dialed on sweet potatoes!
No that's not sour cream, and if I told you it was you'd probably trick your mind into thinking it is! Sweet potatoes are amazing on their own but sometimes even better with some nonfat greek yogurt! Accompanied by a Hummus/Balsamic Turkey Salad with my favorite turkey.

  • Baked Sweet Potato w/ Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • Diestel Farms Pastrami Turkey
  • Spring Mix, Tomato, Cucumber, Carrot, Olives
  • Hummus, Olive Oil, Balsamic, S & P
I'm pretty excited for my next use of Greek Yogurt, so stay tuned.

Popped Amaranth Cereal for the first time! The healthiest cheapest quickest cereal.
  • 1/4c Amaranth 
  • Coconut Milk
  • Almond Butter, Coconut Butter (melted on, mmmm)
  • Honey, Bee Pollen
  • Blueberries
Popped amaranth is super healthy and faster to make than oatmeal! It's super crunchy kind of like popcorn. I definitely burned it a bit but ate it anyways and it was perfect with honey and bee pollen. Bee pollen adds delicious crunchy granules and is super healthy.  I didn't even add any spices! Can't wait to do it proper in the future.


    1. Your meals look delicious! I've never popped amaranth but I may have to give it a try! I've also been throwing together a lot of quick meals lately. My favorites have been a tortilla pizza with goat cheese, red sauce, tofu and basil and a Baked Brie & apple sandwich with roasted tempeh. Delicious!

    2. I don't do much cheese or tofu (only tempeh) but I love making tortilla pizza's! with nutritional yeast, chicken, and or turkey. toaster tempeh is where its at!
