Acorn Squash Risotto

Tonight's dinner was a nice break, and a meal I make often.  For a break down on what you need, check out my post here.  All you need is an acorn squash and a box of vegan risotto.  The garlic biscuits are a bonus.

Stressed + lack of sleep = carb cravings.  I hit up Whole Foods this morning for some tofu scramble and a probiotic drink.  It really hit the spot.  Work is still crazy, but it does seem to be getting better.  For lunch, I had to give a presentation about our LEED Certified Fire Station, so I got a boxed lunch before I had to give my speech.

I had requested a vegan lunch, and seeing as this was a presentation on sustainability, I am always baffled that vegetarianism isn't pushed more in the menu.  Oh well.  They informed me that all the vegetarian lunches were vegan, which I was pleased with.  I thought the cookie was probably suspect, though, so I left that alone.  The wrap and fruit were good, but I was nervous about public speaking, so I didn't eat much of the wrap.  Everything went great, though.

My snack was almonds as usual, but I'm thinking I'm going to switch back to raw almonds instead of roasted ones.  They're good, but I think I like the raw ones better.  I'm working on a plan to clean up my diet for the new year (while still not going crazy during the holidays), and I think raw almonds will be a huge part.

Do you start gearing up about what you're going to do at the beginning of the year in November?!  Maybe I'm weird.  Anyway... on to dinner.

This really hit the spot, and it was super easy.  Do you have any go to dinners that you can whip up easily?


  1. I estimate the calories of my meals, so I tend to rotate ones that I feel comfortable with like tofu scramble loaded with veggies. Also I try to find recipes that would be just as good without oil. I couldn't eat those biscuits because they look to be high in calories and I know I would not eat only one.

  4. The story has it that the pair were rivals for the affections of a water nymph called Rimmon, who came from Chew Brook in the valley. Rimmon chose Alphin, but Alder refused to accept it and the pair hurled boulders at each other in a duel. Alphin was killed, and Rimmon, in grief, threw herself from the crags to join him..

    Don let your imagination divert attention from the cost and practicality of an object, nor from reality. Before making a purchase, ask wifey shirt yourself if you be using the item in the very near future. If the panic at the disco shirts answer is no or not likely, pass.. Texas has the 10th best defense this season overall, allowing just 94 points per 100 possessions. The Longhorns don't foul much (26 percent free throw to field goal rate, 25th best) nor do they give up much near the rim: opponents shoot just 52 percent around the basket, which places them in the top 16 percent of teams. They also limit jump shots (31 percent from the field, top 3 percent)and opportunities off the catch and shoot (32 percent, top 4 percent), forcing Nevada to get creative to put points on the board more than half of their shot attempts in the half court are from jumpers (56 percent).


I'd love to hear from you!
