Working on my routine

Our cows

I didn’t do my 20 minutes of morning exercise today – instead I did over 60. Tim and I went for a long walk around the farm. It was a glorious clear morning and we saw lots of deer (or as I call them, “giant rabbits”).

Still, I didn’t get in my strength exercises. It’s a tough one. I love walking in the morning, but I also have a much easier time doing the muscle work early in the morning when the world is asleep. I don’t know why but I feel like I need absolute privacy. Maybe I just need to get over that. Oh well, I’m not complaining. It was a great day and it was good to get so much time in the sun.

Buckwheat Crepes with Soy Yogurt Cream

Buckwheat Crepes

One crepe is filled with banana and cocoa, the other with sauteed apples. The apple one was my favorite – it went really well with the soy yogurt cream stuff.

Breakfast Tacos with Various Salads

Breakfast Taco (for Lunch)

Avocado Salad

Tim made the best breakfast tacos (for lunch) ever! He first scrambled an egg, then sauteed onion and potato with a bit of cumin. Meanwhile, made some avocado-tomato salsa and a little cabbage salad to go on the side. The tacos were assembled in the following order: potato/onion, egg, lettuce,avo-tomato salsa, chipotle salsa. It’s not much to look at, but it tasted mighty fine!

Lentil Bolognese with Polenta, Baked Zucchini and Broccoli

Lentils and Shrooms with Zucchini and Polenta

I love lentils on baked zucchini. This batch was made with sauteed mushrooms, onions and garlic. SO good. There’s polenta hidden somewhere under the pile.

    those crepes look so good, as always 🙂 love the sound of the apple one with the soy cream! i must make crepes soon, i will definitely use your recipe! my father who grew up in Paris makes the most amazing crepes, both sweet and sometimes savory, too bad i dont live with him ha ha, but when i was younger i would always look forward to having a crepe with nutella and strawberries for breakfast!

    Yeah, the apple with soy cream is a win win. I’ve been meaning to make savory crepes but I always eat them up for breakfast! But I’m thinking a mushroom and spinach crepe with some kind of white wine sauce would be nice. Hmm, maybe I’ll get there someday!
