DIY Cafe Yumm bowl

My DIY "Jazzy" Yumm bowl: ... My DIY "Jazzy" Yumm bowl: The mix of bright colors adds to its appeal
I was first introduced to Cafe Yumm during PAX West in September (see here). The food was so delicious that I went back the following day for more. It's impractical to travel to Seattle every time I want a Yumm bowl, but luckily the internet has the tasty dressing recipe for me to make my own Yumm bowls at home. You can find the recipe I used at food.com or search Google for other variations. The bowl ingredients are listed on Cafe Yumm's website. It was easy for me to prepare a batch of rice and beans and portion them out for a week's worth of Yumm bowls! The yumm sauce has that "umami" quality that makes it quite addicting.

Ingredients
Jasmine rice, 3/4 cup (45 g raw)
Avocado, 36 g
Sliced black olives, 16 g
Homemade Yumm sauce, 61 g
Salsa, 1/4 cup
Small red beans, 3/4 cup (54 g raw)

Tomato Basil Breakfast Sandwich

thread
One neatly folded breakfast sa... One neatly folded breakfast sandwich
Since I had leftover roasted tomatoes and avocado from my salmon tacos this week I decided to remix my morning breakfast with them. To make this sandwich, beat one egg with salt or other seasonings and then cook the egg like you're making a crepe. You want a thin layer of egg because you add sliced tomato in the center when the egg is done and fold the egg up to keep the tomato from spilling out, similar to this. The trick is trying to keep the egg from tearing in the pan or getting too thick to fold. Toast the bun and spread one laughing cow cheese wedge onto the top bun and sprinkle with dried basil. I spread the avocado on after spreading the cheese and basil. The result is a savory and filling sandwich for less calories than most options. Since the sandwich is so low calorie I like to pair it with "chocolate milk" which is a mix of one half-scoop of chocolate protein powder blended with PB2, half a banana, and almond-cashew milk (an additional 16g protein and only 185 calories). I'm stuffed until mid-morning and full until lunch time.
