This morning I was greeted with steel cut oatmeal to warm my belly. It had craisins, chopped walnuts, chopped dates, and a sprinkling of granola. Before working out I had half a Clif bar. I was really liking this White Chocolate Macadamia Nut flavor, but now I’m not so into it. WCMN is so 2009.
Dinner was salmon burgers and kale chips. We were planning on leftover risotto too, but it was a little stale for lack of a better word.
For the kale chips I used a whole head of kale torn to pieces which I drizzled with a tiny bit of olive oil, then sprinkled with salt and pepper. After some thought I added a little fresh parmesan cheese. Unfortunately I was too busy eating the crisps to take a really good photograph of the finished product. Below they look blurry and blackened. Just think of it as an action shot, with the chips sliding down the plate into my open mouth.
They were a bit expensive in my opinion. I think we would’ve done better at the fish counter. It wasn’t bad tasting, but I would probably stick to Whole Foods salmon burgers, or something comparable.
**Kale is delicious, and I definitely need to use it more often, not just for chips.**
*Note* [not food related] Mr. Greens is suffering from weird symptoms lately. He has had a leg rash and today his feet started hurting. For those of you new to my anonymous boyfriend, this boy gets random illnesses all the time, and has bad luck with bug bites (like 2 separate brown recluse bites and chiggers this summer). Last year he got shingles which was horrible. Hopefully this is nothing serious. The only thing I could think of is our 20 pound cat likes to sleep on his feet which could’ve done some damage.
