Tuesday Dinner: Squash, Beans, Greens
My GERD has been more manageable the past week. I have been drinking tea, eating chocolate, and went off my GERD Elimination diet on Saturday, apparently with good results. I don't have an explanation, but I did notice by avoiding triggers for a few days, it allows me to then eat those triggers without penalty. (Or, immediate penalty. Hmmm.) Does anyone else notice this?
Here is our Tuesday night dinner -- roasted delicata squash (just slice, scoop out seeds, brush with olive oil, roast at 400 til soft), black beans (Cayuga organic beans that I soaked for 2 hours, boiled for 1 hour, sprinkle of salt towards the end of cooking -- these freeze very well), and frozen spinach (I was wanting greens and didn't have anything fresh left -- so this is just boiled in a tiny bit of water -- that's it). That's a semolina bread hunk in the background, smeared with probably too much Earth Balance. :) I love these rolls -- they come from a NJ bakery that sells its goods at our local greenmarket.
(And, I roasted an additional squash which I can re-purpose on top of pasta, or as another side dish. I'm always thinking ahead, plotting and scheming how to eat local / fresh / home-cooked without killing myself!)
