Does anyone recognize the title?
This morning I tried a new yoga video by my favorite guy (Tom Morley of Cardio Yoga) – Buns and Thighs Yoga! It was a nice 20-minute workout.
- 1/2 cup oats, 1.5 cups water, 1/2 banana, 2/3 cup Fage 0% Greek yogurt
- an apple
Mid-morning I snacked on a wrap, then took my hour walk before lunch and talked to my parents. I’m so excited to see my dad tomorrow!
- 1 WW wrap with PB&J, topped with sliced apples
- carrots and celery with salsa & bbq sauce
- an apple
- cashews (1/4 cup)
- another wrap

Class was fun; I picked up our Tofurky for Thanksgiving on the way home. I printed out a $0.75 coupon for it though! I also got Bobby more of his pretzels. He grabbed a 6-inch from Subway (tonight was his crazy night) for dinner, which counts toward our challenge total.
Total spent at Whole Foods (Tofurky and pretzels): $11.53
And at Subway: $2.99
Thanksgiving Challenge Total so far: $35.04
For dinner I made my Blogger Secret Ingredient recipe – Italian Eggplant Stirfry! It’s “Italian” because I used spaghetti sauce and topped it with cheese (rice cheese that is). I’m so glad Meghann from “The Inner Workings of a College Graduate” chose Eggplant!
- 1/2 eggplant, sliced in 1 cm slices
- 2 cups chopped cabbage
- 1/2 carrot, chopped
- 1/2 green pepper, chopped
- 2 thick slices of onion, chopped
- spices: red pepper flakes, garlic powder, cilantro, cumin
- 2/3-3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
- shredded cheese (I used rice cheeze)
- Dip the eggplant in salted water and cook in a saute pan for 2-3 minutes on each side. Sprinkle it with the spices while cooking.
- In another saute pan (or a wok; I used a wok), saute the rest of the veggies (carrot, cabbage, onion, pepper) for 3-4 minutes. I like to add some water to make the cabbage cook better.
- Add the eggplant to the rest of the veggies. Continue to cook until everything is tender. I usually add some more water to keep things moist.
- Add the spaghetti sauce and remove from heat. Mix well.
- Top with shredded cheese and enjoy!
I also had a veggie plate with TJ’s Sesame Soy Ginger Dressing:
- honeydew with greek yogurt, applesacue, wheat germ, and cashews
- a few bites of vanilla soy ice cream to finish it off
- a few mindless cups of millet puffs (I didn’t really realize I was eating them as I watched TV…)
- EDIT – to add trail mix
Changing topics – I am very happy with the election results. Though I didn’t really support either candidate at first (I’m a libertarian), I think Obama will make a great president and I’m hopeful for the future.
My dad comes to visit tomorrow! Have a great Thursday!
