Food Photo Diary Day 15 (recipe: Bubble and Squeak)

Friday, May 04, 2012

Our WOD today... "Helen" ... my first of the Ladies... and she was a b****!!! I ended up laying on the floor shaking... and just BARELY made it in time before the cut off. But I did it! And it left me EXHAUSTED today! Very ready for my weekend of rest. It also left me STARVING. ALL. DAY. However I'm due for TOM any day so that could be playing a part in that, as well. Grrr. Oh well. :)

Helen. Doesn't look like much, but you mess with her and you will get effed up!

Now... onto my food ;-)

Breakfast - apple pancake with coconut cinnamon butter, and a few slices of bananas with some almond butter.

Lunch - ezekiel tortilla with cashew ranch, chicken, tomatoes, and avocado! And it was perty!

Still hungry about 25-30 minutes after I finished lunch, so I made some coconut protein pudding, then topped it with cacao nibs and some banana, and 2 coconut chocolates.

Out running errands and stopped at Kroger for some water... ended up treating myself to a coconut water! I love coconut ^_^

Dinner - Bubble and Squeak. Traditionally, bubble and squeak is a pot of "leftover Sunday dinner" that is all cooked together - the name coming from the sound it makes while it cooks. It was big during WWII especially, and usually consists of potatoes, ham, and cabbage, however other veggies and/or meats can be used as well. (I had to wikipedia this... I had no clue what this food was when I originally found the recipe on Pinterest! Haha!)

My recipe:

1 cup grated cauliflower
1/2 tbsp cream cheese or milk
1/4 cup chicken broth or water
1 cup shredded cabbage
2 pieces low sodium bacon
salt and pepper

Steam/microwave the cauliflower with the chicken broth until soft. Mash with a fork or immersion blender and stir in cream cheese. Season with salt/pepper as desired. Congratz... you just made mashed potatoes! Haha!

Now... Steam or microwave the cabbage for a few minutes until softened. Mix the cabbage with the cauliflower puree and chopped bacon, and season with salt and pepper. Place in an oven proof bowl (sprinkle with cheese if desired - I use nutritional yeast) and bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees or until heated through and bubbling.

Dessert... round 2! My Paleo cookie dough yumminess. ^_^
