Arroz a la Cubana {Filipino style}

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Mommy's Lunch:
Arroz a la (cubana?) with poached egg
sweet peppers and medjool dates

My mom used to make up this dish growing up. It's a mixture of ground beef, potatoes and carrots with tomato sauce. Served on top of rice, she usually tops it with fries egg. I never really knew what it's called and after much googling, Arroz a la Cubana (Pinoy style) is the closest recipe I can find.

2 weeks ago, I competed in my first ever Crossfit competition. Of course we packed our lunches (mine and my husband's) in EasyLunchBoxes. As for the competition, I did better than I thought I'd do and that's really all that matters to me.  :) 

Mommy & Daddy's lunches:
grilled ginger chicken with sweet potatoes
carrots (with cheese dip for Daddy)
banana chips and Enjoy Life chocolate chips (for Mommy)
{packed with fruit, yogurt protein shakes/recovery drinks, and lots of water!}
