We had a house guest on Saturday night, and we took him out for brunch at the Liquor Store on Broad (not an actual liquor store but a diner in an old liquor store) before he left town. I'm still doing the Fiber Fueled 4-week plan from Dr. Will B's book. But I'm not being super strict about it. So eating out is fine! And I opted for the healthiest thing — the Cuban Platter! This has black beans, rice, sauteed veggies, and fried plantains, and I ordered a scoop of avocado as well. This has long been my favorite thing at the Liquor Store, and it's been awhile since I've ordered it.
Here's a tasty plate of Miso Mushroom Noodles from The Fiber Fueled 4 weeks that I had for dinner on Saturday. The noodles are buckwheat soba, and they have a miso sauce. Plus, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, snow peas, edamame, red cabbage, and tofu. So good! Especially with a carafe of sake on the side.
It's not exactly pumpkin season yet, but there are a few pumpkin recipes in Fiber Fueled, so I made them. One was a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie made with pumpkin puree, banana, maple, and — the best part — canned coconut milk. I added protein powder as well because it was for post-run. I'm realizing now that this looks like cheese dip.
And here's some Pumpkin Hummus from the book, with my homemade Sourdough Cheese-its (those are from Dr. B's second book, The Fiber Fueled Cookbook, and they're now a staple in our house!).
