Crudités, vegetables and dip

What I ate: September 6, 2014

Breakfast: Zucchini bread and yogurt with granola and blueberries . This is one of my few breakfasts without meat in it, other than Sunday bagel, lox, and cream cheese. I probably ought to come up with some more healthy meat-free breakfasts, maybe to replace Tuesday blueberry muffin and bacon. Also, I think there's too much sugar in this breakfast, mostly from the bread but there's also some maple syrup on the plain Greek yogurt so I don't want to have this too often.

Lunch: Homemade potato leek soup with a slice of homemade ciabatta bread with fleur de sel and olive oil. I made two servings of soup and vacuum sealed and refrigerated the other; the bread was previously frozen. With a half glass of 90+ New Zealand sauvignon blanc.

Dinner: Beef with scallion and broccoli rice bowl with brown rice. I was thinking about making a salad to go with it, but there was quite a bit of food without the salad.

What I ate: September 14, 2014

Breakfast: Bagel, lox and cream cheese on a whole wheat bagel with tomato and red onion. And a mimosa.

Lunch: Tempeh with scallion and broccoli stir-fry . I normally make this with tofu, pork or beef, but I decided to try it with 1/3 of a package of 3-grain tempeh and it was delicious.
