noosa Mini Meals

I ended up eating a lot of mini-meals yesterday instead of my usual three meals. The day started with fresh orange juice mixed with pomegranate juice and theraflu because I feel a cold (second cold since December!) coming on. I’m determined to beat it.

I made a big batch of Ashley’s Garlic and Greens soup and went and deleted the photo on accident. This soup was so nice in the morning, I ended up eating it for breakfast and again a couple of hours later. I had a friend over who thought the soup was amazing too. I also liked that it was so filling, yet so low in calories.  We got about five large bowls out of the recipe. Thanks Ashley, I’m making another batch today!

Here’s her recipe with my small changes:

Garlic and Greens Soup

-1 head of garlic, minced (I used about eight cloves)
-1 yellow onion, finely diced
-1 tbs evoo
-1 bunch kale, bok choy, or chard, chopped into bite sized pieces (I used a bag of frozen spinach)
-3 yellow potatoes, diced, not peeled (I used three carrots)
-8 cups vegetable stock (I used chicken stock)
-1 tbs seasoned rice vinegar
-sp to taste

* I added 1/2 C whole wheat couscous to the soup towards the end.

in a large soup pot, saute the garlic and onions in oil until transluscent. add greens, potatoes, and veg stock and bring to a boil. simmer everything about 25 minutes until the potatoes can be pierced with a fork.

Just before turning off the heat, add the rice vinegar, and sp to taste.

croissantplate Mini Meals

A couple hours after the soup I had a serving of Noosa yoghurt with blueberries and honey. And a couple hours after that I had a croissant with strawberry jam, fresh strawberries, chicken+apple sausage, and a peanut-date ball.

A couple hours after that I had a 1 cup serving of raisin bran with whole milk. And another chicken sausage later in the evening. Lots of food!

I also did a session of the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga. It did wonders for my knee and my mood.
