Leftover Couscous & Miso Soup

Hey guys! I hope everyone is doing well and that you all had a great weekend! I started my week off right with a yoga morning booty call. Breakfast was rushed because I didn't want to be late for my class so I grabbed a home made protein bar. I had a long class this morning so I didn't have much time for lunch until I got home. I snacked on almonds and the Tone It Up's krazy koconut bites throughout my class and on the way home. When I actually got home I had a small salad with spinach, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I made my own dressing, which I tend to do a lot. For me, it's just easier to make my own dressing and also cheaper. I just throw a few of my favorite ingredients together: some apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, pepper, and sometimes a little soy sauce. Try making your own some time! For my workout I did 400 reps and the rest of my Tone It Up lean leg pyramid challenge. I gobbled up a protein shake before making dinner. Here is tonight's quick dinner recipe:

Leftover Couscous & Veggies

Leftover plain couscous
Handful of Spinach
Half of a  Zucchini (Chopped)
1 Carrot (Chopped)
Some Organic Salsa (To taste)
Handful of Snap Peas

Saute your veggies until almost done. Add your organic salsa and mix in well with the veggies. You're going to add your couscous last since it's already cooked. Just make sure all of your ingredients are mixed in well and your couscous is warm and ready to eat. Season with pepper and top with some fresh parsley. Enjoy! 

I had some miso soup on the side. This recipe is super easy as well. I made extra so I would have some for lunch tomorrow, so you can make a smaller batch if you want.

Miso Soup

Silken Tofu (A few squares)
2 Stalks of Green Onion
A few pinches of wakame
3 cups of Water
About 2-3 tablespoons of Mellow White Miso

Heat your water in a pot on medium and add your wakame. After a few minutes you will see the wakame change into a softer texture. Add your green onion and tofu and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Take your miso and place in a bowl. Add some of your broth to the bowl and mix until it dissolves. Once the miso dissolves add it to your pot and stir. Continue to let your soup simmer just a few more minutes. Make sure you don't boil the miso. Serve!
