...No, don't worry, I didn't overdose on carrots this time! :)
More bright colors in today's lunch, going along with today's theme! There is no such thing as too much sunshine in one's life. Grandma made Borscht. We pulled out some leftovers. I made everything else. We shared and enjoyed each other's company. :)
The lunch consisted of many small, savory bites. I felt like I was taste-testing and rotating from one side dish, to the next! But the pâté/chutney/paste/spread/dip??? I haven't given it an official name in English, and am not sure if it already exists.
Red Pepper & Zucchini pâté/chutney/paste/spread/dip:
- 1/4 yellow onion, diced
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
- 2 medium zucchinis, chopped
- salt to taste
- oil for sauteing
Today's taste-testing included roasted sweet potatoe slices, 1/2 veggie patty, left-over plov, and bread with the zucchini spread. I see lots of orange! :)
An afternoon snack was a new combo that I will definitely have again... Crumbled up Deep Chocolate VitaTop with cottage cheese. I am trying to increase my protein intake, and this snack surely meets the protein need with 16g of protein (30% DV)!! And, yes, a cup of coffee... or two cups rather... But it's half-caf-half-decaf!
Not surprisingly, I later had an orange for a snack... And actually, that wasn't intentional! :) It looked so beautiful - like a flower - I had to take a shot of it. Of course, I did. :) #foodbloggerobsession
