Saturday Scramble, Yoga and Roasted Root Vegetables

The weekend kicked off with a Egg Scramble and Cheese Tortilla Wrap 

I was excited to find this carton of Organic Liquid Egg Whites by Vanderpol's Eggs; I
normally use these free-run egg whites because organic carton eggs are harder to find

I scrambled 1/3 cup egg whites with 1.5 cups frozen chopped kale, 1/4 cup diced
red onion, 2 tsp apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp thai spice blend and 1/4 tsp black pepper

Sprinkled with Kraft Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese

This cheese is SO GOOD, although their 4 Cheese Italiano is THE BEST 

Nutrition Facts

Given that this was the last Brown Rice Tortilla from the bag,
 it was much too dry to fold into a wrap, but I tried anyways...

WhAaaaT? Haha the tortilla fell apart the moment I started rolling it. I decided to 
pop it into the oven for a couple minutes to save it, that way the tortilla shell would 
get crispy enough to use as "tortilla chips" for dipping into the scramble. Clever ;)

Wait, where's the cheese?

Had to dig my way down towards the bottom to find the oozing cheese

I can't quite find the words to describe how it
looks but there's something whimsical about it...

As my mom used to always say, "It doesn't matter what it 
looks like, it gets broken up in your stomach anyways!" :)

After breakfast I headed down to my workplace, VI Fitness. 
Luckily I was taking a yoga class instead of teaching one for a change

VI (Vancouver Island) Fitness for Women

After class I headed over to Starbucks for tea

Venti Starbucks Tazo China Green Tips Tea

I like how each cup size has it's own unique Christmas cover art

After window shopping running a few errands and grabbing another one of 
these protein bars to munch on, I came home and started preparing Dinner

A large "Mish-Mash" of Root Vegetables, Beans and Spices

I've got diced Sweet Potato, Purple Yams a.k.a. Japanese Sweet Potato
Edamame Beans, Brussels, Zucchini, Brown Mushrooms, Leek, Dill, 
Garlic Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper and Apple Cider Vinegar

After roasting in the oven

I found a container of leftover Roasted Kabocha
 Squash in the fridge, so I dumped that on top too

Time to dig in!

Scooping into a bowl

Creamy, messy, delicious!

I try to be a little more lady-like by presenting a nice little bowl of
 this, even though I know I just eat the whole pan anyways. I guess it's to
 avoid photos like this from back when I piled on the sweet potatoes haha!

Question: How have you been preparing and eating your 
vegetables lately? (Roasted, boiled, steamed, fried or raw)

Everything looks so delicious! :D I like the spice combo you use - dill is *soooooo* underrated! :D

My favorite veggie preparation is still stir-frying (so easy - just have to throw everything into the pan), and I also like oven-roasting but I'm often too impatient (= hungry). Since I've been at the institute during many days lately, I've often packed freshly sliced tomatoes and pre-roasted chicken (made a whole batch) or leftover veggie and bean stew in the morning, and thus ate more raw veggies overall.

Liquid egg whites scare the bejeesus out of me, but I trust you that the outcome is delicious :P YOu came up with a crazy-awesome version of fattoush, kinda! And oh, how I miss Starbucks! Delicious deliciosu frappuccinos...

Oh Kelsey, I'd love to come over and eat with you for a day! Your meals look absolutely scrumptious.

My brown rice tortillas always turn crumbly too, but I've never thought to turn them into tortilla chips! Brilliant. Plus, I bet the contrast of soft eggs and crunch makes it super satisfying.

My favorite way to prepare veggies is by roasting them. Hands down. It just requires patience, which I don't always have when I'm hungry! ;-p

Those BR tortillas never wrap well for me either, but they do taste delicious! I like the scramble.

I hate it when my tortillas fall apart on me like that! I never though to crisp them up in the oven and eat them nacho-style though. Great idea!

You have me on a spicy brown mustard kick lately. It is such an easy things to drizzle on veggies and it adds such a great flavor. I am really enjoying roasted vegetables especially this time of year. I never thought of adding dill. It's one of my favorite herbs. I'll have to give it a try.

Looks yummy even though the tortilla broke ;) You make me want to bake some veggies too, too bad it's Sunday and all the stores are closed. Well, next week it is!

for me, autumn is all about roasting veg. Although, most of the time I also throw in some steamed veg too :)

While I LOVE roasted vegetables, I have been all about the speed of steaming & stir-fry-ing them lately.

Roasted veggies are totally the way to go! And yours look sooooo good. ;)

I love spontaneous meals like your scramble. There's something very comforting about them, isn't there?

I am very very hungry right now.
Holy mouth water!

I have been addicted ADDICTED to steamed brussels in vegetable broth with S&P...so simple and I just can't get enough.
