Sunday after the race I was pretty tired, but since I didn't cook on Saturday I had TWO more vegetarian meals to try! For lunch, I had Steamed Vegetables in Peanut Sauce with Rice. This was supposed to be served over rice, but I had some rice noodles that needed to be cooked, so I made a quick and easy substitution.
Onto dinner! I was excited about this meal ALL WEEK. I made Tortellini with Garden Vegetables (recipe is approximately the same). The recipe suggests broccoli, but I was all out - so I had peas and corn instead. Since this was just a "throw it all together recipe I don't have too many pictures, but here's what dinner looked like:
So, today I had more tortellini for lunch... and I think I have it in my head to "keep up the challenge" of vegetarianism - I've now completed day #9! For dinner, I made Cheesy Vegetable-Rice Skillet, which was so, SO simple and very delicious.
dish I made back in May, just with chicken added in.
So, while most of the week without meat I felt great and full, I have to admit though, I was hungry before bed last night and I'm hungry now!! I think these past few recipes have lacked protein, which means I'm not staying full as long. I might need to find a protein-heavy snack before bed! Although there's a vegetarian lunch in store for me tomorrow, I'm not sure how much longer I'll keep it up!
10K training officially starts tomorrow morning - let's hope my legs are a little less sore by then :-)
