Tofu Alfredo Veggie Bowl


Tonight's recipe is sure to give you a huge and healthy dose of your veggies!  I ACTUALLY got up this morning and rode the bike trainer for a half an hour, so the rest of the day I was pretty hungry.  I think that's the thing you really need to watch when adding a lot of exercise to a diet program.  I have been adding tofu scramble to my morning protein shake, which really seems to give me a good foundation for the day.  Because I'm having such a big breakfast, though, I'm usually waiting until lunch to eat.


I threw in some left over grilled zucchini from Saturday's BBQ.  I do love zucchini.

We went to Izzy's for lunch, and I got the asian salad.  I was a little disappointing that it was a ton of iceberg. Next time, I might ask for spinach.  I followed up my lunch with a snack of pistachios before I headed out for a school board meeting.  However, I was still hungry, so I snagged some trail mix from the vending machine.  Trying to stay low carb, I didn't eat any of the dried fruit.




When I got home, I decided to whip up another pasta type dish with the leftover Victoria Vegan Alfredo from sunday night.  I cooked penne pasta for Josh, but I wasn't wanting all of that starch, so I had my dinner on a bed of spinach.  The hot sauce wilted the veggies, so if you want something more hearty, go with the pasta.  The dish was still good though, I thought.
