Helllllooooo. Today has been such a good day. I got some amazing news and I’m feeling grateful and blessed. More to come on that front! 🙂 Also, I’m just so overall happy with how things are going right now on the work front. Teaching more and writing more = good for my heart and soul. Follow your passion people. It will not lead you astray.
Jumping into today’s post material. First, last night’s dinner. Sweet potato, Trader Joe’s Salmon burger (they are good!) and mashed cauliflower. Let’s talk about mashed cauliflower. This was my first time making it. Not that I really expected it to taste like mashed potatoes but it’s not even close. Those who says it’s a substitute are mislead. It’s good because I love cauliflower and it definitely tastes like cauliflower but I think in the future I’ll stick to roasting cauliflower. I like to best that way! It was a lot of work to steam and mash the cauliflower.
I had a 6:30 a.m. client this morning and then came home for breakfast. I made a pot of oatmeal with oats, coconut milk eggnog, water, chia seeds and dried cranberries and then stirred in pears that I sauteed in coconut oil and cinnamon.
Topped off with cranberry sauce and sunflower seed butter.
This leads into a breakfast discussion. I asked on Facebook what everyone had for breakfast. It was 26 degrees in Charlotte this morning so all I wanted was something warm. I am always interested to see the mix in breakfast preferences. I almost always trend towards something sweet like smoothies, oatmeal, toast with peanut butter, honey and banana or overnight oats. I VERY rarely crave eggs or anything savory for breakfast.
What’s your breakfast preference? Sweet or savory?
Lunch was a salad and a bowl of Whole Foods pumpkin and roasted garlic soup. The soup was delicious!
Time to hang out with this one. I have a very early morning of teaching and training in front of me!
