First of all, I can't kick whatever is going on - I am all congested and very run down. I went to bed at 9 last night and didn't get up until after 7, not even to pump (or workout) like I do every day! I might have to finally go see a doctor. It seemed like it was going away and then hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday and I just felt very exhausted most of the day. Once 6pm hit I really wanted to go to sleep. I've been taking mucinex but tried sudafed today. Along with that, having my smoothie w/ spinach, blueberries, echinacea, banana and orange. What gives?? I was even getting to bed earlier since last week. I can't take it anymore!! Missed the run this morning - where I was considering doing a hard workout with a faster group (didn't happen!) and I don't think I'm going to be getting in any running today based on how I feel. Ahhhhhhh.
Regardless, the dinner streak continues and last night's dinner was worth sharing.
Tofu with peanut coconut curry with grilled veggies & brown rice on the side.
First prepare the rice or grain according to package directions. We had brown jasmine rice on the side.
Slice the tofu and sprinkle with salt, pepper and curry powder. Pan fry with coconut or olive oil over medium heat - about 8-10 minutes per side. The longer you keep it on, the more brown and crispy it gets. Set aside.
For the veggies - (mine were leftovers from veggies and dip tray - carrots, cauliflower, peppers, broccoli) cut up a bunch of vegetables and place in a big roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and minced garlic. Cook at 450 for about 30 minutes until tender.
For the sauce - combine 1 T coconut oil with 2 T peanut butter (runny, Trader Joe's works best) and about 1 tsp curry powder. Melt the coconut oil and mix all together. Drizzle over veggies and tofu.
