Purple Hashbrowns by Katie

At the end of my work day, I started feeling lightheaded and shaky and I knew I needed some quick sugar.  The low blood sugar thing hasn’t happened in a while but it used to happen all the time in college.  I learned later that alcohol can contribute to low blood sugar problems so that probably, uh.. definitely, explains that.  Like this one time in Perkins… I got a free muffin though.

I treated myself to a favorite from the Whole Foods Bakery- a flourless chocolate cookie.  Ingredients include cocoa, egg whites, chocolate chips, and few other ingredients.

I ate half right away in my car and saved the rest for later.  Someone definitely stared at me as I took this picture in my car. Oh well.

Once I got home, I had a more substantial pre-workout snack: cereal + kefir again.

At the gym, I did The Fitnessista leg workout and intervals on the elliptical.  I pedaled backwards on the higher resistance pieces.  I’m thoroughly enjoying spinning and ellipticizing since my life will be all about running soon!


I had a lot of random pieces of vegetables to use up and I was really craving hashbrowns (no idea why).  I grabbed some local potatoes when I was feinding for the cookie-  they were all about between the size of a golf ball and a lacrosse ball and different colors.   I boiled them briefly and started to chop-chop.

Surprise! Some of them were purple inside!

I was kind of obsessed.  I sautéed the chopped potatoes in olive oil with onion, garlic, and some spices.

Meanwhile, I sautéed green peppers, tomatoes, and the rest of a Portobello and eventually added an egg + egg whites.

Breakfast for dinner:

Yeah, another ‘tato shot because they were much prettier than my egg scramble.  I added mama’s hot peppers and ketchup and life was good.

Enjoying some vino (on sale at Wilbur’s for $7.99!), doing some work, and possibly watching Jersey Shore.. maybe.  Don’t judge.
