Happy New Year!

Hey everyone! Happy new year!! I hope you all had a super fun, safe evening :) Mine ended up being quiet because I wasn't feeling well. I was planning on drinking some of that delicious Red Electra wine, but I had to swap it out for tea. Wah! Oh well, I woke up feeling much better so that is all that matters!

I was out for most of the day so I only have 2 meals to show you. I FINALLY replaced my power cord for my computer so I am very happy to say that I can now move my computer around again which is nice.

Check out the eats.

For breakfast I had some spicy, fat free refried beans in a brown rice tortilla with a half of an avocado.

For dinner I stir fried up some leftover tofu, broccoli and brown rice into a quick, tasty meal. So good. And yes I used my new chopsticks! They are awesome! Great way to slow down a meal :)

Not looking forward to going to work tomorrow but I'm definitely looking forward to the double training session I scheduled! An hour and a half of fun, yay!

Have a great night everyone and Happy New Year!


  1. The food looks great! I love eating with chopsticks, even salads. Hope you feel better when you wake up tomorrow :)

  2. Yummy! Do you make your own brown rice tortillas or are they store bought? I'd love to try some bought gluten-free breads (since I never have much luck with my own).

    Awesome looking stir-fry, by the way!

  3. I need something really horrible and grueling to do like scheduling time with a personal trainer. Thanks for the idea!

  4. I had a little moscato last night for you, so not to worry! ;) I have a little breakfast envy, it looks great! So does the stir fry - yum.

    Enjoy your workout!!

  5. I like chopsticks for that reason, as well. Your resolutions sound very doable, and you seem like the kind of person who can accomplish whatever you try to do. I'm still formulating my resolutions in my head. Happy New Year!

  6. Your chopsticks are super cute (pink!) I've never had much luck with chopsticks--I need a tutorial or something.

    Glad to hear you're healing better. I went to sleep early on NYE. I'm boring, but whatever.

    Happy new year!

  7. Breakfast sounds delicious! I'd love to eat more savory breakfasts and I bet this one was especially filling.

  8. Chopsticks sound like a great idea for slowing down (and simplifying!). I'm going to consider getting a few pair of them, although it's been a while since I've used some...

    Great food, as always. I'm sorry you weren't feeling well!

  9. Thanks everyone!

    Nikki - Thanks :) I like eating with chopsticks really helps slow meals down which is great!

    Isobelle - I buy my brown rice tortillas from trader joe's. I also really like Food For Life's Millet Bread for toast. it has great flavor and a decent texture when toasted.

    Shen - Lol! If you find a good trainer and an activity you love it isn't grueling or horrible at all ;)

    Ingrid - Awesome, glad you enjoyed a glass for me! I definitely recommend trying this breakfast, it is super easy, great protein boost and filling. Getting stoked for my workout!

    Jenny - Thank you so much that is really nice of you to say :)

    Sage - Those are the chopsticks for dummies! I am a total chopsticks spazz so the ones I got as part of my holiday gift makes life easier. I'm boring too, just a mellow evening...

    FF - Thanks! It was super filling, I def recommend trying it.

    Molly - It's like riding a bicycle ;) I'm feeling much better, thanks!

  10. Great job on the workout - wow!

    The food looks delicious. I love avocados and had an avocado sandwich for lunch today. I didn't take a picture though; maybe I will tomorrow ;-) Good for you on using the chopsticks. I don't have too many food "problems" anymore, but one I still have is eating too fast, and maybe I should try chopsticks to slow myself down.

    Happy New Year to you!

  11. Oh man, that stir fry looks DELICIOUS. How do you get the tofu so crisp looking? It takes me forever it get it browned.

  12. Miss Rachel - Thanks! Definitely try the chopsticks, I've noticed it helps a lot. I get full a lot faster too which is a great side effect :)

    Ashlae - Thanks! I basically just press and drain the tofu to get it as dry as possible and I let it sit in the pan until it gets nice and brown. I don't touch it at all until I'm ready to flip it so try letting it sit instead of constantly stirring. Hope that helps!
