Ah, what a relaxing day. Both hubby and I had today off and spent it at home before another possibly busy week. We didn’t need to go out and the weather was cold, foggy and wet all day, so why bother? It was great playing games, tackling projects, working out and eating. Like this lazy salad I made with chopped collard greens, zucchini ribbons, sauerkraut, carrots, leftover tempeh chunks, dulse and toasted sesame oil for lunch. Simple and it got the job done.
Then I cleaned, sorted and organized our pantry while hubby sweetly sterilized the fridge.
I also prepped for the week by getting dried chickpeas and black beans soaking in the fridge for weeknight dinners, mixing a fresh jar of chia seed gel for breakfast smoothies and started a new batch of kefir water.
I spent a lot of time playing my latest addiction, Plants vs. Zombies on my iPhone and against hubby on Xbox. I know, this game has been around for awhile and I’m late to the party – as usual. But what a blast and I love that plants are the best defense against a zombie apocalypse.
For dinner I threw together Lentil Quinoa Chili since I was craving something hot and hearty after an icky weathered day. But for this round, I used plain green lentils instead of French and black quinoa to switch things up a little.
The end result was still delicious and very filling.
And maybe 1, or 4, dough balls were consumed throughout the day.
What do you do to prep for meals during the week?
