A lot of times when I show a picture of something that I’ve eaten, especially a recipe that I’ve made, I’m only showing you part of what I’m eating. Sometimes it’s because what I’ve made that was intended to be an entree turned out to be a side dish. Case in point, last night’s Kale and Cauliflower Bake.
This came from the South Beach Diet cookbook. Back in the day, I followed the South Beach diet and lost a lot of weight. While I don’t agree with the low-carb, fake sugar thing anymore, most of the recipes taste good and I still make them from time to time.
I halved the recipe to make three servings. Every time I make 4 or more servings with the intention of freezing the leftovers, I end up getting really sick of the meal and don’t want to eat it anymore.
This was good, but like I said, more of a side dish even though it was listed in the vegetarian entree chapter of the book. I guess that’s a problem with a lot of vegetarian meals; they’re just side dishes in bigger portions.
Tonight, I decided to make a complete meal.
Half a block of tofu sauteed in Trader Joe’s Curry sauce. I was going to bake the tofu, but suddenly my oven stopped working. Ugh. The stove top still works at least. With the tofu, I had a side of barley that was cooked in vegetable broth for flavor and bok choy that was stir fried in a wok with oil and a sauce made of soy sauce, cornstarch and veggie broth.
I haven’t been talking much about running. I don’t know why. I’m still running! I haven’t fallen off the training wagon yet. I also need to sign up for the race. I should get on that. I’m planning on running the Silver Comet half marathon in the end of October. Today I did 6 x 400 at 5K pace. I ran the faster 400s at 6.5 mph and walked the slower ones at 3.5. This took 40 minutes to do 3 miles. Afterward, I did a bunch of ab exercises. I do find that when I train for a race, I neglect strength training. It just seems like a lot of time at the gym!
