please eat your greens, and don't sit close to screens  
Trying to keep slightly better track of food combinations I like:

Really late lunch today, while out running errands: a large DIY salad from the chain cafe, with turkey, dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and apple. Resulted in a really late dinner; I wasn't very hungry, so I chopped up some broccoli until very soft and ate it piled on a piece of toasted French bread, covered with olive oil and parmesan cheese. (I've been reading An Everlasting Meal by Tamar Adler, and I sort of got the idea from this book. It was surprisingly good, although I couldn't get the broccoli as mashed up as I would have liked).

Yesterday's dinner was the last of the black beans I made for quesadillas (canned black beans, green onion, garlic, cilantro and coriander, cumin, splash of red wine vinegar), mixed with quinoa and topped with a poached egg and some cheddar. And half a chocolate cake-in-a-mug for dessert, because for some reason I really felt like making some cake in a mug. (Must remember to buy more powdered cocoa; I'm almost out.)

No idea what to have for dinner tomorrow. If I'm *very* lazy I might wind up eating a plain bowl of quinoa.

Yesterday's dinner sounded like my kind of meal. I just discovered quinoa and it is wonderful.

It's so handy: not any harder to make than rice, good for you, and easy to keep in the fridge once you've cooked a batch.
