I can’t believe it’s already Friday tomorrow! I’m pretty sure I could handle a 3 day work week every week.
Today’s breakfast was an exact replica of yesterday’s. Only no Christmas mug this time. At lunchtime I grabbed my sneakers and Maddux grabbed his leash (yeah….not really) and we ran to a nearby dog park. He’s still a puppy (7 months), so we are easing him into running by taking him on short runs and getting him used to running by our side.
I made myself lunch when we got back. Also very similar to yesterday’s.
Only I skipped the veggie burger this time and added nutritional yeast. A sliced apple on the side, no surprise there.
After work I went to the gym for an hour-long Muscle Max class. I increased my weights last week and stuck with that, so it was pretty tough. I was really feeling it in my shoulders and my biceps. I also happened to notice, while standing there pumping iron, that it looks like I have the chicken pox. I am still covered in red welts from all the mosquito bites I got camping last weekend. Sweet.
Ryan had class tonight, so that means I did what for dinner?
A.) Picked up food from Whole Foods
B.) Made something with tofu
C.) Made something with kale
Answer: B and C
I’ve made this dinner several times for myself and love it every time.
I started with a block of tofu that I had put in my handy-dandy tofu press before going to the gym. If you cook with tofu, think about getting a tofu press. They make your life easier and your tofu firmer
I cubed the tofu, marinated it in a mixture of these ingredients,
and then baked it for about 15 minutes at 350°. Use a cookie sheet covered in tin foil and sprayed with cooking spray. No mess.
While that was in the oven, I sautéed kale and onions in a little bit of water and a cube of vegetable bouillon until softened.
At the same time, I cooked up some rice noodles. They only take about 3 minutes to cook, super fast.
When everything was cooked, I added them all to a bowl.
You can add a little more of the tofu marinade if you want extra sauce.
Delicious. There are some leftovers, but they will be lucky to see tomorrow.
