My Day in Food (Vegan)
Ready for another day of food? This was my Tuesday eats. It's all vegan and all super tasty.
Butternut squash pancakes topped with earth balance and maple syrup. My first time eating these! I wanted to use up some of the roasted squash from the day before.
Lemon ginger tea in my $1 Starbucks cup. I love these reusable cups. Have you seen them? Seriously, only a buck.
While baby boy napped...
This chocolately smoothie filled with chia seeds, oats, almond butter, banana, and spinach, oh my!
Butternut Squash Mac n' Cheeze and tempeh (fried in Frank's Red Hot for BLTs over the weekend) with avocado and tomato to go along. Basically I don't like to waste food and these were leftovers from the weekend. Still just as delicious.
And a few minutes after I finished lunch...
Not the whole container, I swear. Just a solid third of it. Notice the sleeping baby in the background. He sleeps, I get to eat.
Then it was time to visit the babysitter Sage will be going to when I go back to work. Mama and Sage selfie!
Time for some more tea. This time Kukicha tea. Speaking of which, I haven't talked about my interest in the macrobiotic diet here in a long time, but it's still very influential in my life.
Sage and I then made a quick trip to Wegmans to pick up just a few items.
I got home and needed a sweet snack.
And then a sweet smile...
Handful of cashews to hold me over until dinner.
And finally dinner. I'm starved by this time.
Scrambled tofu with greens (collards) and raspberry chipotle sauce over green rice (made from sautéing spinach and scallions then pureing and mixing with short grain brown rice).
This meal is all about the flavor. It may not look appetizing but it's so crazy good. This recipe is from Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers cookbook. Moosewood restaurant is in Ithaca, New York with fantastic vegan meal options. My husband and I have eaten there a few times on special occasions.
Dessert time. Two chocolate chip cookies from this book.
It's a one bowl simple recipe that gets me my cookie fix in less than 20 minutes!
I just eat my way through the day. I'm a hungry mama between breastfeeding and running, and that's good because I love food.
What's the best thing you ate today?
What do you think of my food day?
