The breakfast of champions! 28 grams of cashew pieces and coffee - 160 calories. That will keep me distracted until lunch. I find it helpful to measure my food every now and then to remind me what an ounce/28 grams looks like. And it's not a very big handful. I have big hands and I could probably scoop up twice as much if I use a "hand" as a guide.
Lunch at North Side Grill on Broadway. Had a bowl of chili, a few fries, a bite of pancake, a taste of corned beef hash, and some hash browns. Tasting is going to do me in!
Dinner was a few leaves of swiss chard rolled up with homemade pesto. We grew the basil and chard. Also had a bowl of soup made from some end of the season tomatoes and carrots.
To make the soup, in a Vitamix or other high speed blend - add left over, marginal tomatoes and a wilted carrot or 2, a handful of raw cashews, clove of garlic, sprinkle of curry powder, and a splash of olive oil. Blend until smooth. Simmer on low, stirring occasionally. Serve hot or cold. I re seasoned with more curry powder, salt, pepper, and a few red pepper flakes for my bowl.
The blender container was about 3/4 full with chopped vegies and not even half full when pureed. So this made a little less than 4 cups which I turned into 4 servings.
