Sunday Funday

I hear people say that phrase “Sunday Funday” a lot.  And that was exactly what today was.  We’ve been pretty pumped about this McMennamin’s Passport thing.  So we hit up 25 spots… yes I said 25.  And we only spent $3.75 for a beer.  But what we gained was two appetizers, two pint glasses, two growlers and $26 in gift cards to fill it up.  This is making to be weekends full of adventure.  Its super fun doing it with my husband too.  He is a walking, or shall I say driving, GPS.  He knows his way around any place, and I get lost in my own house.  I’m so thankful for his skills.  So with him knowing his away around the city, we were able to quickly navigate around.  

As far as my whole 30 goes, it was a fun day.  Not crazy, but fun.  I had the hummus plate, and swapped out pita bread for more veggies.  They came pickled. And I had a few of Randy’s fries.  On top of that, I had a few ounces of hard cider that we filled our growler with.  But that is about it folks.  I kept it in moderation.  

What did you do this weekend, to help your health goals? How did it go?

Vegetarian Breakfast Quiche

Tomorrow is our church’s New Years Breakfast.  I completely forgot about this until I got the reminder email, so I scrambled to find something to make.  Turned out to be a fantastic recipe.

Vegetarian Breakfast Quiche

  • 1 tbsp butter + 1/2 tbsp
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 medium sweet potato, scrubbed and diced
  • 1 large handful of greens, I used Power Greens, you can use kale, chard, spinach
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 ounces of bree or cream cheese
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt 1 tbsp butter in a cast iron skillet or large frying pan over medium-high heat.  Brown onions and sweet potatoes.  Stir occasionally.
  2. Chop up greens, when potatoes are golden brown fold into the pan.
  3. Butter a pie dish to keep quiche from sticking.  (You can also spray with cooking spray). Once greens are wilted add into the pie dish.
  4. In a blender, whip egg whites, eggs, cheese, garlic, pepper, salt and rosemary.  Once frothy, pour over vegetables.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  5. Enjoy!

 

P.S.  Since I’m trying to keep myself accountable here…. today was another great day. I’m really starting to feel amazing.  My energy has gone back up, I’m not hungry all the time and I’m sleeping better.  To be honest though, I am doing my Whole 30 challenge with a bit of modification.  I am eating dairy in moderation, and peanuts in moderation.  I haven’t found either of those to bother me in the past when I’ve eaten clean/paleo.

Day 1

Quick update,short because I’m exhausted, but I’m doing it because I said I would.  Someone has to hold me accountable.

Today went great in the sense that I ate great, whole foods.  But it went poorly in the sense that I didn’t eat much.  I had a great breakfast, but then after working out didn’t have time to eat, which is a big no no… and my body was functioning on caffeine and God’s grace. I was in a long meeting today for Ncompass.  (Big things happening here!!!) and then had a sparatic coffee date with a friend and her daughter, and then ran home before House Church.  Thank goodness for Lara Bars.  But I will plan better tomorrow.

Speaking of house church.  We had a great discussion tonight on “The Cost of Discipleship.”  We were asked, what does that cost look like? And we really had to prayerfully sit there in silences for a few minutes to come up with a good answer.  And yet, all of our answers were different.  For me, right now, it is dying to self.  Loosing my identity in ME, and finding it fresh and new again in my Savior.  Once I get to the other side of each situation, I know that my way is not the right way, but His way is, yet it is SO HARD TO SEE THAT on the one side of the fence.  Others said that its loosing your pride. Or loosing friends and family who disagree with you. Others said it was having a calling that might not be what society deems as worthy.  I love my house church, or missional community rather.  They are such a great group of honest, and dear people.  So thankful for them.

How would you describe “The Cost of Discipleship?”

p.s.  our team came home today from Haiti!  Praise Jesus for the amazing things they were able to accomplish.  Hopefully I’ll have a moment to type something out about that.  But in the mean time, enjoy this great photo of a memorial mural the kids painted for Jackson.  Image
