I had a great workout today and ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill which is good considering it's been over 3 wks since my last run. My knee has been bothering me so hopefully the break will help. I was starving when I got home and felt like eating something instead of a shake. I guess I would call this one an egg white mash, different than breakfast but sort of the same idea. I can't help it, I could eat these combinations for every meal and snack!
I added 1/4 cup of left over steel cut oats
In cleaning out my kitchen drawers to pack I found these skewers that I bought probably more than a year ago. Apparently they infuse flavor into the food so tonight I'm giving them a try with chicken. I doubt that the flavors will be intense so I also made a marinade this morning for the chicken. I do have to mention though that these skewers smell AMAZING!!! They smell just like a huge Thai soup with cilantro, lime, fish sauce, lemon grass and anything else Thai.
3 large chicken breasts cubed
juice of 2 lemons
1/4 cup water
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1/4 of a a medium onion
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt and pepper
I would love to bbq it but mine is packed for the move so I baked it at 400 until mostly cooked through an then put the broiler on to get a bit carmelized.
Next in my recent quest not to waist and empty the panty, I made a tabouli with the rest of my bulgar and finished off lemons that were soon ready for the lemon grave yard. This was a medium bulgar so I just boiled it until tender and then drained.
3 tbsp avocado oil (any oil will do)
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp each salt and pepper
Blend well and add to cooled bulgar and veggies
This was a very tart dressing which I prefer but maybe use 1 1/2 lemons and keep tasting until it's perfect for you.
