Balanced Meals and Giveaway Winners

My efforts to balance my meals went a bit off track these past couple weeks, 
but i'm back to portioning my protein, carbohydrate and fat ratios

Oatmeal and egg whites with a sliced banana, peanut butter and cinnamon

For lunch I made a healthy stir-fry with roasted kabocha squash

Then I mixed in a lot of different things...

 Sliced turkey sausage, black soy beans, corn, broccoli, celery,
spinach, swiss chard, green beans, bok choy, cucumber and mustard

Exactly what I needed, stir-fries always fill me up :)

And my dinner last night was also yummy; For the first time, I balanced 
my sweet potato addiction by choosing one, not seven, to bake in the oven

Large baked purple yam with cream cheese scrambled eggs,
 greens (swiss chard and spinach)... with a dollop of salsa

Okay, now onto the best part, announcing the winners 
of the Green & Black's Valentine's Day Giveaway!

And the lucky winners are...

The sweet potato with eggs and greens looks sooooo good. I just ate a sweet potato, but I was too hungry to be creative...just mashed it with a bit of salt and margarine. So yummy, even if it was too dull to photograph!

I don't know how your stir fries always turn out AMAZING, but they do. I love that you added swiss chard, that's definitely sounding great right about now.

Only 1 sweet potato - I'm so proud! Love the looks of that stirfry as well. Yum!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

I love the idea of throwing kabocha into a stir-fry! Yours looks so delicious and healthy!

Oh goodness, cream cheese eggs sound delectable. Especially on top of a sweet potato. Kelsey, basically what I'm saying is, will you come be my personal chef? :-)

Ayla said... [reply]

You managed to balance out your dinner by only having one sweet potato?! I'm proud of you! Haha. :)

So you find that oats don't bother you even though you're GF? Do you buy the ones that are guaranteed uncontaminated?

Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas said... [reply]

I love that every time I visit your blog, I leave wanting either a stir-fry or a sweet potato. I'm making white bean and kale soup tonight, but tomorrow it's stir fry a la Kelsey!
