Today was a party day! I helped cater a friends bridal shower. Breakfast was....wait for it....a SMOOTHIE! In the car, on my drive down to Sacramento. Since eating and driving is not recommended on many levels (but since we're talking about nutrition, it's not great for keeping you that REST and DIGEST mode), I chose to drink my breakfast once again. The party started at 11am and lunch was quite the spread.
Our options were (from left to right): vegetable spring rolls with a almond butter dipping sauce; grilled sausage with mustard; Thai cauliflower salad with a almond butter dressing; grilled vegetables; grilled chicken thighs with a peanut dipping sauce; a charcuterie platter and a vegetable platter. My plate was full and looked like this...
I chose: salami, vegetables with roasted garlic artichoke dipping sauce, Thai cauliflower rice salad, a vegetable spring roll, a few slices of grilled sausage and 2 skewers of grilled chicken with almond butter dipping sauce. Later that evening, I enjoyed dinner on my deck. It was grilled burger patty on a bed of lettuce with sliced tomatoes, bacon, 1/2 avocado, grilled onions and a side of left-over Thai cauliflower salad.
