Steamed Veggies!

I made the biggest wok of steamed veggies EVER last night. SO much. SO good. I used fresh and frozen (gasp!) veggies. I usually never use frozen veggies, always fresh, other than corn. But they were on special at No Frills and I figure its a nice thing to have around when you're too lazy to chop them. 

Day 3 of my health challenge is going ok so far. Yesterday I had a crappy day and really just wanted to go home and curl up in bed with the X Factor but I toughed it out and gymed it up. Only problem was that I forgot my ipod at work so I had to run on the treadmill sans ipod. Now I'm sure I've expressed my dislike for the treadmill before so y'all know I prefer to run outside, but let me tell you: running on a treadmill sans ipod is waaaay worse then with one. I made it to 45 minutes, how I don't know, sheer determination and the stubbornness that runs through any person in my family. 

I also got my new wireless modem from Telus last night. It looks so complicated. I actually opened the box, took a look then closed it again. Jeez. I was def not in the mood for that. Even though I've been suffering without internet since LAST Sunday. Sigh.

Anyways, I don't have an actual recipe because, well I don't think steamed veggies needs one. But here's what I did:

I put broccoli, green swiss chard, kale, baby bok choy, edamame, bean sprouts and frozen mixed veggies - oriental mix (lol). Plus a freshly squeezed lemon, soy sauce, vegeta, garlic powder and sesame seeds.

I put that on top of TruRoots Organics Sprouted Bean Trio which I tossed with green curry. YUMMY.

Sorry for the craptastic pics but I thought I didn't have my camera at home so I used my Blackberry. Sucky. Turns out I did have it, it was just lost in the abyss that I call my purse. 

No cooking tonight, my friend is debuting her collection at Vancouver Fashion Week!! Yah Nikki! Love this girl. We've been friends since grade 5!!! Wow, I'm old. :(

Maybe I'll have a restaurant review though, grabbing a bite afterwards.
