Last weekend I took advantage of the fact that I had nothing to do and nowhere to go. So I spent the day doing what I wanted to do. I watched movies and ate! It was just what I needed. I had a Me Day, My Way.
For Breakfast I enjoyed a few Crumpets with Sun-butter and hemp seeds.
For lunch I made a fun and really tasty sandwich. For some reason I have been craving an egg salad sandwich so I made one. Like I said I was having a Me Day. Check out my secret ingredient. Chobani Greek Yogurt. #justaddgood.
I found Organic Pea Shoots at Trader Joe’s, and when I saw them, I knew I had to try them and I am happy to say I loved them! They can be added to stir frys, salads, soups and sandwiches, or steamed as a side dish. I have been wanting to use my Chobani so I thought instead of mayo on my egg salad sandwich I would use my yummy Chobani Greek Yogurt.
It was one fine tasting sandwich. Worthy of repeating on any given day. Cho-Egg Salad Sandwich with Pea Shoots. Other fun Chobani creations can be found here, and here. Oh yeah, and here. Chobani is a great way to add some clean protein to your diet and replace fatty ingredients, like mayo, oil or butter. In the summer I made a few fun dessert dishes using Chobani Greek yogurt. Chobani Cheese Cake, Chobani Frozen Treats.
For a fun snack I ate one of my Homemade Brown Rice Krispy Treats smothered in Sun-butter Yeah, it was a great snack! It was a little salty and a little sweet.
For dinner I ate some baked Black soybean that I marinated in Soy sauce and sesame oil. I however forgot to take a picture of the finished tofu. Oops.. I eat tofu all the time, but this was my first time trying the Black Soybean Tofu. It really soaked up the marinate, and had a great flavor and texture. I wish I had a picture of the finished product, because it was baked to a golden brown and looked really good. I loved the black speckled look of the tofu. I will get a picture….Next time.
My tuna sushi was so good, I was so excited when my Kroger’s store had it, they normally only stock California type sushi. Bonus for my Me Day.
Guess who else had a Me Day? These two. They work so hard all week, they deserve it. 😉
Question: When was the last time YOU had a ME DAY?
