I don’t know about you, but I put together really random meals sometimes.
Last night I had no idea what I wanted to eat. I knew that I wanted vegetables, since I had sort of eaten my weight in parmesan goldfish crackers that afternoon and needed some produce in my diet to balance it out. I decided I should eat the summer squash from my CSA, but what to do with them?
I ended up cutting them up and roasting them in the standard method, using a bit of extra virgin olive oil, pepper and minced garlic. Then I had to figure out what I wanted to eat with them. An egg? Yes. An egg. Eggs rule.
Okay. So I am having roasted summer squash and an egg….but do I really want just those things? No. I need cheese. Hmm. Quesadilla? Fried egg quesadilla? Score.
I had two corn tortillas (1 serving) left from when I had tacos last week, so I figured a quesadilla seemed like a good idea. When I looked at the tortillas, apparently something had scrunched the packaging they were in, so they broke….this meant I wound up with weird shaped pieces of quesadilla. S’alright by me.
So let’s recap. I wound up with an egg+part skim mozzarella quesadilla with pico de gallo and greek yogurt on top with a side of roasted summer squash, which I also topped with pico de gallo…because…well….it was there.
Then this morning came. I was starving, so I ransacked my fridge for a solution.
What to have with it?
This morning I quelled my massive hunger with the above. Before you panic, it’s less than 500 calories…..about the same as any oatmeal + peanut butter mess you’d see anyone eating on a healthy living blog. This was seriously filling. At about the half point I realized that perhaps my eyes had been a little bigger than my stomach…
In case you’re wondering what all is on that plate, it includes: 2 slices of whole wheat toast with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray and a little bit of honey, 2 slices of turkey bacon, a handful of spinach, the leftover summer squash from last night’s dinner, about 2 servings of egg whites and left over pico de gallo.
I guess the breakfast isn’t that random. Though it is true that I would normally not have included squash in my eggs. I find that if I have eggs in the morning, any vegetable that is leftover from the night before gets thrown in. Just because. Random fact.
Don’t know what I’m eating tonight. I have a feeling more randomness may ensue….
What kind of random meals have you thrown together?
