Lovin’ Leftovers

July 28, 2010

Happy Wednesday!  For some reason I could not seem to come up with a title for this post.  I sat there for so long before coming up with one, which still isn’t all that great.  Bloggers, do you ever have trouble coming up with titles for your posts?

I woke up in the middle of the night to rain.  I was so excited!  No more rain this morning but it is overcast.  I love days like this!  It is such a nice break from the Vegas heat.

My favorite new thing to do on Wednesdays is to lay in bed with my computer.  I read blogs, check my email, etc.  Ok before you start thinking I am lazy, I honestly never do this.  On the weekends, I always have an alarm set for my A.M. workouts.  I am considering it my mid week treat!  :)  I still managed to clean up the house.  I feel like I am always doing laundry!

Breakfast

I started my morning with a bowl of Kashi Heart to Heart Oat Flakes and Blueberry Clusters topped with sliced banana.

I know, I know, not that exciting.  This cereal is just sooo good! 

Snack

While doing stuff around the house, I munched on an apple.  Crisp and juicy!

Lunch

I had leftover coconut curry tofu from last night.  I topped it onto some barley I had cooked earlier.

I usually am a rice and quinoa girl, but I am  loving barley.  Barley is a whole grain and has 3  grams of fiber for every 1/2 cup (cooked).  It also has several vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and zinc to name a few.

Side note: Make sure to check which type of barley you purchase.  Pearl barley, for example, is not considered a whole grain and has undergone more processing so more nutrients are lost…still has some fiber though.

Going to head to body pump in a bit.  Then I have got my hair appointment and then dinner at my parents.  See you later!

What is your favorite grain?

I am loving this cool down too! Well, cool down as in 101 instead of 110 degrees? haha Sounds like a lovely Wednesday to me. That tofu looks great, very neat tofu press too!

Most sells usually only sell pearled barley, unless you go to a health store. I still prefer it to white rice, though. My favorite grain is oats! :D

Oh, and haha, I ALWAYS have trouble with post names! I try to avoid corny ones, but I always give up.
