Meatless May-Day 10
Friday, May 11, 2012
I had a really weird dream last night. It was a food dream!!!!! It’s weird that I had one since I never have food dreams. I dreamt that I ate a cheeseburger but in my dream I was doing the meatless month. I felt so guilty and wished I could just take it back. Today was my first meatless weigh in, I’m down 2.6 pounds so woohoo to that!
Today I had my wrap for breakfast, I was out of refried black beans so I had refried pinto beans, I’d never had this brand before and I didn’t like it! There’s some spice in there that has a funny taste to it. I need to use the can up before I can buy more but it makes me kind of sad that I didn’t enjoy my breakfast as much today.
I had a really hard time deciding what to eat for lunch today. I really wish I had some frozen vegan food because I really felt like just plopping down and eating. I ended up eating the laziest thing I could think of, chickpeas with onions and green goddess dressing with some dried figs. I know super exciting right!
For dinner I made hoisin mustard tofu with “fried” rice, the rice had peas, onions and soy sauce in it. I served it with broccoli. The tofu was good but a little too sweet for my taste; if I make it again I’ll use a little less hoisin sauce. Here’s the recipe.
Just as a side note I need to vent a little bit. I’m having some family issues, it’s nothing serious but it’s really starting to get on my nerves. My brother and my Aunt are driving me nuts. My aunt has fibromyalgia and is on A LOT of pain medication. Over the past 8 years she’s gotten a little loopy from it. She tends to say and do things that are completely inappropriate. I usually just let it slide off my back because I know she can’t really help herself but my brother is a different story. He fights with her all the time, especially since his daughter was born. Just to give you an example my aunt called his 6 month old baby fat and told him he should watch how much she’s eating…………
Both of our parents passed away and my aunt has no children so they both come to me to talk about each other. I honestly don’t mind my brother coming to me to talk about it, because I agree with what he says. What really bothers me is when my aunt comes to me and talks badly about my brother. I’ve asked her a million times to stop but she either doesn’t remember or doesn’t care. We’re both going to Detroit to visit my brother and the baby this summer and I don’t want to play referee the whole time. OK end rant!
