None the less, Avery is now asleep and it's food time...my mental break time, so let's get going with what I ate this Wednesday. Actually this is Tuesday's food, I found that trying to take pics, blog, and post all my food from a Wednesday on that same Wednesday was a difficult thing to do, so I'm trying to document what I ate on a Tuesday and post it on Wednesday, we'll see how this works out. Here's my gluten-free, vegan eats from the day:
|Just woke up snack: Rice Chex cereal, SO Sugar-Free|
Vanilla Coconut Milk
Workout: 1 hour of yoga, 2 episodes of Namaste Yoga like I blogged about here. This is my favorite yoga series of all time, been doing it for several years!
|Breakfast: "Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie"|
Ingredients: rice milk, raw cacao, spinach,
chia seeds, hemp seeds, frozen bananas,
|Mid-morning snack #1: 2 gluten-free, vegan pancakes (recipe |
here), with maple agave nectar. I've been loving pancakes
|2nd mid-morning snack: banana|
|Lunch: Broccoli Skillet (broccoli, carrots, onion, red |
pepper, tomatoes, rice, curry, ginger, Braggs liquid aminos)
|Afternoon snack #1: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Lara Bar, |
this one tastes just like a Snickers bar (to me)! Satisfied? You bet!
|2nd afternoon snack: 1 "Barbcued Black Bean and Tofu Burrito", |
recipe from Vegan on the Cheap. BBQ is something I've missed
since going vegan, but this BBQ tofu hit the spot!
Then I picked up Avery and headed home. It was smoothie time and someone helped me get all the ingredients out of the fridge. Lately this has become her new play spot. I'll sit her down on the ground, open up the door and the fun begins. She will crawl to the door, start to climb up on the drawers and shelf and before I know it, she's standing!
|Whatcha' need mom?|
|She's not satisfied with just standing in one spot, she has to |
be reaching for what's close by or where she can go next.
In this case, Daddy's Blue Sky Soda. Like the splits?
|Fridge door, I'm coming for you!|
|Snack: Avery and I then both shared a|
"Green Orange Julius Smoothie":
Vanilla Sunwarrior Rice Protein Powder,
orange juice, 1 1/2 frozen bananas,
ice cubes, spinach.
Since Brandon went to go skateboarding tonight, Avery and I headed over my parent's house, her grandparents, for a night of fun...and The Biggest Loser finale!
|Dinner: Vegan Chili and Pasta, inspired by|
"Cincinatti Suburb Chili" from Vegan on the Cheap
by Robin Robertson (pinto beans, TVP, tomatoes,
spices with Tinkyada rice spaghetti noodles,
topped with fresh onions)
|Spaghetti in one hand, carrot stick in the other.|
|Carrot sticks must feel good on those gums.|
|All smiles as she showed off her eating skills for Grandma,|
Grandpa, and Uncle Andrew.
|Dessert: a few spoonfuls of "Brownie Batter Dessert Hummus"|
from Nourishing Flourishing. Who would have thought
beans could taste so much like brownie batter?! This is one
sneaky, delcious, and healthy dessert!
Well thanks for the chance to have my little mental break and ramble about something I love: gluten-free, vegan yummy food. Did you eat anything especially good today? Share below!
