Tonight's macro dinner brought to you by the lowly beet. Actually, tonight's dinner was three shades of purple now that I think about it. Purple cabbage, red onion [which is really purple], and beets [which are red, I know, but purple-y red]. I mixed in spinach, garlic, the ever present yellow curry, and a couple pinches of salt. The result was a lush, earthy mix that was also quite heavenly.
Last night I soaked about 4 cups of black beans. The ebony lovelies cooked up well in vegetable broth and spring water and a few cloves of garlic. Once they were tender, I added them to a pan of brown rice ~ which I had cooked last night, and lightly stir-fried them. With the purple veggie mix on top, it was just what the macro doctor ordered ~ and I didn't miss the meat this time. Yay me!
I felt so great I hopped on the treadmill for a bit. I have not developed the runner's high yet, so when I work out, I still get pleasantly stretched and sleepy. Which is good, because I'm still adjusting to "springing forward!"
