Thurs Feb 12th - What I'm Eating

Breakfast: egg scrambled in coconut oil with black beans (yes, the soaked ones...) and cheese

Lunch: orange, Ezekiel corn tortillas with above-mentioned beans and cheese

Dinner: Quiche with ham, asparagus, mushrooms and cheese in a whole wheat crust

Snack: leftover quinoa with feta and spinach stuff...mmm...

Analysis: I definitely could have done better on the veggies again today, but it was hard enough to just think of something I felt like eating in the first place. When I am sick, I get very picky... I was also downing Echinacea tea with honey all day today, and I drank a 27 oz Klean Kanteen's worth of water with 2 packets of EmergenC during class... I have had to pee literally all day long!

To answer a question that was asked regarding how I soaked my beans and quinoa the other day, I did just soak them in water, in separate glass containers out on the counter. I probably should have changed out the water every 12 hours but I didn't... I think they soaked for a bit over 24... The beans took on a lot of water and the quinoa did a bit too but not as much as I might have thought - it still swelled up a little more when I cooked it. Apparently you can also soak grains and things in whey if you make it from raw milk or yogurt but I haven't gotten that far yet. I am signed up for a seminar to learn how on the 28th weekend though...
