My Current Favorite Lunch

by HEAB on November 20, 2009

After a busy morning at the office, I present to you my lunch.


As far as meals go, this is a 100% typical HEAB breakfast, lunch, and or dinner. I finally restocked my kabocha squash supply yesterday, and popped a big mama one in a 275° oven at 5:30 AM this morning. When I got home from yoga around 7:30, she was slow roasted to perfection. After scooping out the seeds, I wrapped that baby up in foil to eat later for lunch. When I got home, I pureed half the squash with 1 scoop Sun Warrior vanilla rice protein powder, 1 TBSP maca, and cinnamon. There was more than enough to fill the jar, and I ate what was leftover straight from the food processor. I find that pureed squash is much more filling than squash fries. Weird. On a side note, this is my favorite Sunbutter as it contains nothing but roasted sunflower seeds. I used to think it was so plain and preferred the one with added sugar and salt. However, after trying the sweetened/salted version again yesterday, I realized that I like my sunflower seeds straight up. To all sweet nut butter lovers out there, try the ones without added sugar a few times. You’ll start to notice and appreciate that rich nutty flavor all on its own. So good!

Some of you have asked how I can possibly eat out of empty nut butter jars so often. It’s because I keep a lot of empty glass jars on hand, and transfer from jar to jar. Poor Chris never knows what kind of nut butter he might be dipping into. I really should start making labels. :)

I am so excited about having no plans tonight as I feel like I’ve been on the go for the last 72 hours. Tonight, it’s me, CD, the pups, and the TV. Can’t wait!
