bottome pic lunch - quinoa, green beans, broccoli, tomatoes, Sunshine fresh herb burger
My new love now is delicata squash and kabocha squash. I am really enjoying their sweet flavor. I chop them up in cubes and steam them. This has been my breakfast lately. I eat this a few hours before my runs. I also put apples in there too. So I get fast and slow carbs together. This has done wonders for my running. I run a minimum of 9 miles when I go out. So this dish fuels me for the long haul. So I steam the squash for about 10-15ish minutes (depends on the kind of squash). Then the last 3 minutes I throw in an apple with raisin for a quick steam. I lightly drizzle maple syrup. Such a great dish. If I eat this at night, I do not steam my apple. I only steam the apple before my run.
The next dish was lunch today. I pretty much call it my mush, and my mush contains a variery of steam/raw veggies, tomatoes, grain (quinoa/brown rice/millet), starch (yams/sweet potato/squash), and beans or bean burger which is either homemade. But lately with my busy schedule I have been eating Sunshine burgers. The are so flavorful, with whole ingredients. I tend to just throw everything into my wooden bowl and mix. And then after my lunch I had a large glass of fresh orange juice. It hits the spot.
