Introducing the squash…

November 8, 2009

Hope everybody’s having a great sunday! Today was a typical sunday for me. It’s raining outside so I just stayed inside and found ways to keep myself busy.

The rest of yesterday’s eats weren’t spectacular. I ate another sandwich in the afternoon and in the evening weetabix and milk. Yeah, sucks, I know.

Today’s breakfast was coffee and milk and bread + blueberry jam. Guess who’s not eating bread for the next couple of days? I ate way more than I’m used to, this weekend. It makes me feel really full and bloated and I hate feeling like this. Who doesn’t? I love bread but I definitely need a break from it. I also ate a pear some hours after breakfast (didn’t take a photo).

Lunch was butternut squash and a stuffed portobello mushroom. Pretty awesome. It was my first time eating butternut squash like this (I only had it in soups before) and I liked it! I have to find more ways to cook it. πŸ™‚

This is my mom cutting it in half (it was hard!)

We just randomly added spices we thought would be good πŸ˜›

Veggie mix to stuff the portobello.

The final product!

Dessert was a clementine!

I had a snack at about 5pm. A pear and an apple.

Dinner was soup (yummy) and chestnuts! The chestnuts were even better than last week’s! And there’s leftoveeeeers. Guess who’s eating them tomorrow? πŸ˜›

And that’s it! Well, this weekend was pretty indulgent (I ate a lot of stuff just because I felt like it and not because I was hungry) so for the next couple of weeks and until my brother’s wedding (November 21st) I’ll try to keep things simple and healthy. That’s how I feel best.

Hope you’re having a great sunday. I’m going to watch the rest of a movie (totally paused it because I felt like blogging!) and then it’s time to sleep. πŸ™‚

Here’s today’s picture of the day. Just to clarify, I took all these photos I’ve been posting (and will keep posting). I do it because I like to show people what I do and I think it helps keep things a bit more interesting. πŸ™‚

See you tomorrow ya’ll.

    Great looking lunch! Yum
    I get bloated from too much bread too. I try to stay away from gluten as much as possible, and I find it really helps!

    Squashes are so hard to cut when they’re raw. I like making spaghetti squash because I can bake it whole and cut it once its cooked and is SO much softer.

    Lunch looks delicious. I still keep craving your soup too!
