And Yet More School

Well it’s a going, my new semester that is. Off to a roaring good normal start.

So what have I been eating the last few days?

I’ve started a Green Monster habit. I actually had one every day after christmas, and I”m trying to keep the trend going. I’ve been having them for lunch:

I’ve been trying the Vega flavours, since I’m think of investing in a bigger container of them, and want to make sure I don’t waste my money. I want to up my overall smoothie’s goodness, and since I know I don’t get enough protein (I try, but sometimes I just fail miserably) I’m giving these a whirl. Does anyone have any favorite protein or health supplements for smoothies they’d recommend? I know a lot of the blog world likes amazing grass, but I’ve never tried it.

I’ve been having some toast with syrup (I’m out of honey! 😦 ). On a makeshift plate: I already want fewer dishes.

And last but not least I bring you my new fav recipe (of my own creation!). It’s not too serious a recipe, since it’s sort of a throw together, meant for one…

Chickpea and Squash Curry

jan06 010

  • vegetable oil
  • some onion (I used maybe 1/4)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 butternut squash, or other, chopped up small
  • some other veggies (Optional) (I used carrots)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon corriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/4 c coconut milk
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/2 vegetable bouillon cube
  • 1 can chickpeas (drained)

Heat the oil in the pot, add the onion and garlic. Sautee until onion is soft. Add in the squash and other spices. I then added the carrots as well. Sautee for maybe a minute. Add in the liquids. Allow to simmer for a bit. Then take a hand blender, or regular blender and blend. If you want leave some of it out to have a more chunky style curry. Also at this point I had to add more liquid. I added more water, if you want a smoother almost buttery texture add more coconut milk. It probably comes to a cup or more liquid, depending on how thick you want it. Return to stove if using normal blender, and add the chickpeas. Cook till chickpeas are heated, and voila! Chickpea and Squash curry.

This recipe make 1-2.5 servings. I know weird number, but I had a bowl the first night, and a bowl tonight, and there’s a wee bit left.

Alright… I should really go hit the books. Does that seem wrong? it’s only my first week after all! I should be having fun!

    Im a big fan of curried chickpeas! I pretty much think you can add curry to just about anything and it will be delicious! I never would have thought to add squash though. Such a good idea!

  2. I’ve never tried Amazing Grass, but if you want to go the green supplement route, go for the Greens+ brand – they are Canadian. Or see how you like the Vega, since they are ever more local 🙂

    I have an assignment due tomorrow. How wrong is that?!

  3. oooohhhh I love that new plate!

    Your GM looks so green . . . mine always looks yucky brownish, it’s probably the green of the spinach and the red of the berries competing for domination . . . hey that would make a really funny post one day, remind me down the road 🙂

  4. Oo la la! That’s a very classy plate you have there! Syrup and toast sounds like it would be yummy..
