After my 60 mile bike ride, I spent the rest of the afternoon working on a freelance article. I was very pleased when an e-mail from the Glam Newlywed broke my concentration – she has an almost-new pair of cycling shoes in my size that she isn’t using and wants to donate to CaitlinHTP! Yaaaay! Three cheers for blends (blog friends).
In other news, I discovered Puffins cereal today.
There are no words. Seriously. I ate this gluten-free cereal like popcorn and it was so-freaking-delicious. I always eyed Puffins in the cereal aisle, but the price scared me away. Mambo Sprouts sent them over to try, and now I am HOOKED. Worth the money! Will buy when I run out (which may be in… oh, a day).
For dinner, I was craving some sort of peanut-sauce Thai-inspired noodle dish, but I wasn’t really sure what to do (and I was too lazy to google).
In the mix:
- 1.5 – 2 servings of whole wheat pasta
- Stir-fried mushrooms, corn, snap peas
- Peanut Sauce (2 tablespoons peanut butter, water, and mustard blended together over very low heat)
- Bed of spinach
Originally, I wasn’t planning on the bed of spinach, but when I began to mix in the stir fried veggies, it didn’t seem like enough VEGGIE POWER for one bowl. Isn’t it funny how veggies always shrink when you cook them, and then it feels like there’s never enough?
So, I added raw spinach, which was great:
The peanut sauce was a little… different… but good. Husband gave it two thumbs up! It was a nice change from pasta sauce.
Off to munch on more Puffins! And get into bed early.
What’s your favorite way to sneak in fruit and veg?
