Before teaching, a “War Bar” or a fresh juice was an excellent light snack. They held the hunger off and provided just the little push of energy needed for me to keep my class motivated. By mid afternoon/early evening, I’m either getting ready to teach or have finished teaching. After teaching, I am famished. As a meal after teaching (or as fuel consumed hours before teaching), I tried the “Shrimp & Chorizo Paella,” “Spicy Dan Dan Noodles,” “Meatless Meatballs with Marinara,” and “Chicken Teriyaki with Rice.” My favorite out of them all hands down was the “Spicy Dan Dan Noodles.” The rice noodles satisfied my carb desires while the spicy flavor helped clear my sinuses during this Austin cedar fever season. While on it’s own is a delicious vegetarian meal, I chose to add some protein. My favorite add in was the seared shrimp. This combo cut a bit of the spicy and became a full sized meal perfect for after teaching or working out.
