Happiness in a bowl

Mashed yukon gold potatoes with broccoli, carrot, avocado and cooked chicken.

I woke up hungry this morning and knew I wanted a big bowl of something.

Since my cravings for oatmeal are few and far between these days, I decided on a mashed potato bowl.

One yukon gold potato went into the steamer (cut into medium chunks) and when it was tender I took the potatoes out and mashed them with a splash of soymilk and 1 Tbsp. of Tofutti cream cheese. I also added a pinch of salt and pepper.

Then the carrots and broccoli went into the steamer. When they were tender, they joined the potatoes.

And because I wanted to add some protein and healthy fat, I tossed in some cooked chicken and avocado.

I ate it all mixed up with a extra bit of pepper.

I would definitely call this happiness in a bowl :-)

Happy Saturday everyone!
