|My tofu, mushroom, zucchini salad. Might not look like much, but it sure was tasty.|
So two hours later I was feeling pretty restless. After a little bit of stalling and contemplating, I finally just gave up dwelling upon the logic of yogurt parfait and hunger and just made myself a tomato soup. I halved some small tomatoes on the vine and seeded them, and then laid them out onto a sheet pan. I had some fresh thyme from last week that I sprinkled on top along with some salt and pepper, and then with a good drizzle of olive oil I just put them in the oven on medium to high heat for about twenty minutes. While it's cooking in the oven I poured about half a cup of milk and half a cup of water into the blender and added a teaspoon of bouillon powder. When the tomatoes were done cooking I poured everything into the blender and put it on high for about two minutes. The result was very satisfying and tasty with an English muffin cheese sandwich. A few hours later when I was feeling hungry again I put together a tofu, mushroom, zucchini salad that was just what I needed to feel good and motivated about continuing on.
I don't know whether it was because green tea do have some caffeine or for other strange reason (I am leaning toward the green tea), I am not feeling the fatigue and headache today. I have been feeling pretty good all day, with no craving on sugary food unlike yesterday. I've been told sometimes ago that once you are on a healthy diet, after a while you just don't get the craving for the fatty, salty/sugary, highly processed food anymore. It has only been a day, so I highly doubt that was the reason for me but I'll take the no craving anyway.
I am also running into a little problem and that is: two days in and I am not sure what else I can cook. I've finished all the tofu, mushroom, zucchini, and tomatoes in my fridge. I have one a half potato left along with a little bit of cucumber and pasta. I guess that would make a good salad. But I do need to get more grocery and I am not sure what to get, or what to make. Now I am surfing the internet for vegetarian recipes looking for idea.
Had a ristretto bianco from Starbucks while I was out grocery shopping. I was thinking about broccoli and cauliflower, instead I got a yellow bell pepper, quarter of a pumpkin, some sweet peas, and a bag of carrots. I think it's about time to look for curried carrot soup recipe. I also finished those pea shoots by blending it into a purple smoothie. Basically it's the same as yesterday with a bunch of frozen blueberries added. I am sipping it now as I sit in front of my laptop working on my other writing project.
