Sweet and Spicy

Hey gang,

Dinner tonight was so tasty! I made a Martha Stewart recipe, called Chickpea, Tomato, and Spelt Soup. I did make a ton of modifications to it though.

Instead of paprika and saffron (I'm out of both spices), I used chili powder and cayenne pepper. I also added a few teaspoons of red pepper flakes. The soup came out just as I was hoping it would. The spices gave the soup a really warm taste. Together with this salad and balsamic dressing, it was the perfect meal for tonight.

D's meal looked something like this

I made him chili and cornbread. Cornbread is so simple to put together, and it makes the meal in my opinion. Notice the Diet Pepsi? I hate it when D drinks that stuff, but what can I do? I can only govern what I eat. I'm working on picking the bigger battles to fight over ;)

Next up - chia pudding!

2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 scoop protein powder
1/2 stevia packet
1/4 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
2 tbsp milk

I let it set in the fridge for about a half hour. It was the perfect consistency. YUM!

I've gotta get back to the women's figure skating program. It's one of my favorite olympic events. Night :)
