Mushi Sushi

First day of actual class! I’m excited about my new classes. I can tell already that I’ll be learning a tremendous amount this spring.

Before school, I pulled together a salad in three minutes:

My mouth is watering just remembering this meal.

That’s mixed greens, hummus, a black bean burger I made in bulk a few months ago and froze, and Annie’s Goddess dressing. The combination of flavors was amazing! Lunch met all my ideal criteria – plenty of veggies, high-fiber, heart-healthy beans, healthy fats in the hummus and dressing. The salad kept me chewing and kept me full for a long time.

On the way home, I chewed some more on a ClifKid bar:

Normally I like to snack on more “whole foods”, like fruit and cheese or yogurt and peanut butter, in order to take advantage of the phytonutrients and other good stuff found in these foods. Packaged foods like Clif Bars have a lot of added vitamins and minerals, but they’re missing the micro nutrients that nature gives us (some of which we haven’t even discovered yet!).

Even so, granola bars are a nice filling snack to eat on the run.

This evening, Peter and I went out for sushi with some friends. The light was dim, but the sushi was amazing.

I felt pleasantly satisfied afterward. A fancy end to an ordinary Wednesday.


  1. I expect lots of pictures when we go to Shady Glen. Lots of phytonutrients.

  2. I love what you are doing. The recipes look very easy to follow with the pictures and excellent directions. I also like your theory of healthy protein, lots of veggies, and a high fiber carbohydrate (if I understood that correctly). That’s exactly what I am trying to do, sometimes more successfully than others.

    1. Good for you, I’m so proud! It’s not always easy to have every category with each meal, but it gets easier with practice! 🙂

  3. Mm, that sushi looks delish. How much schooling do you have ahead before you achieve your goal?

    1. 1.5 years until I’m a Registered Dietitian — feels like forever, but I’m sure it will go by before I know it. 🙂
