Breakfast: Two slices of toasted Ezekiel bread with three egg white and iced coffee with unsweetened almond milk.
Morning Snack: Apple
Lunch: Kale salad (recipe from Oh She Glows). Stir-fry using a bag of frozen mixed veggies and this sauce I made the night before. The sauce was really good! The recipe called for anise stars which I didn’t use and it still turned out fine. I had never heard of that spice before, but it is beautiful! Check it out:
Pretty neat, huh?
Here’s me enjoying my lunch at my messy desk. Stir-fry.. MMM! :]
Afternoon Snack: Banana
Late Afternoon/Pre-Workout Snack: Ezekiel pita bread with almond butter. I ate half the pita with almond butter when I got home and when I realized I forgot to take a photo. I knew the right thing to do was eat the other half in order to take a photo so you all could see. :]
I wanted to work out but I didn’t feel like strength training or intense cardio so I went with Bob Harper’s yoga DVD. I’ve had this for awhile but never done it. Hour long workouts are just so hard for me to get into unless it’s a group exercise class with someone really there to motivate me.
This yoga workout was really awesome though. It’s a bit of strength, but the stretches are so good and there’s modifications for all the moves. The hour actually went by quickly which was great because…
I wanted to catch up on Secret Life! I always bring my laptop in the kitchen to clean or cook while watching tv shows so I feel productive. I got to work on dinner and followed along with the drama while chopping onions, garlic and ginger.
Dinner: Chickpea & eggplant curry from Appetite for Reduction that was enjoyed on the front porch with Greg & Pepper. I wish I could share the recipe with you all because it is amazing! I’ve loved every recipe I’ve made from this cookbook so far, but I think this is my favorite.
After dinner we went on a walk around the neighborhood so Pepper could get some energy out. After every walk, the minute we take the leash off, Pepper goes crazy and rolls and rubs his face all over the carpet. It’s pretty funny but kinda weird. Does anyone else’s dog do this?!
I’m off to pack lunches and get my gym bag ready because I’m going to try and make a strength class after work. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

This morning I woke up and decided I wanted to change things up with breakfast. I keep seeing green monsters on all the blogs I read and wanted to try my own. It was awesome! It’s a really simple recipe and it tastes so good.. I just wish I’d tried it sooner!
Breakfast: Green monster (recipe from Oh She Glows). I also had two slices of Ezekiel toast and three egg whites.
Morning Snack: Apple
Lunch: Spinach & chickpea curry from Vegan with a Vengeance and quinoa. It doesn’t look all that appetizing but it was delicious!
Afternoon Snack: Banana & an iced coffee.
Dinner: Kale salad (recipe from Oh She Glows). I’d been wanting to try this recipe for awhile now and finally had most of the ingredients on hand to make it. My version had kale, cucumber, tomato, sunflower seeds, avocado, carrot and a tahini dressing. Amazing!
There are insane storms here and more on the way so I’m outta here for tonight! The weather has been so weird lately and it’s kind of freaking me out. Are any of you guys having crazy weather too? If so, stay safe out there!
Be sure and check out what everyone’s eatin’ at the What I Ate Wednesday party! I love it because I find so many new bloggers & recipes from there!
For breakfast I had Cafix with coconut milk and overnight oats with coconut, blueberries, cherries, almond milk and vanilla almond granola.
Cafix just wasn’t doin’ it for me and I had some half decaf/half regular coffee.
For lunch, I brought field greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, dulse flakes and Annie’s Lite Gingerly dressing from home and added chickpeas, mushrooms and broccoli once I got to the dining hall. I also had a (just one) bite of the spinach feta quiche, green beans, mashed potatoes, curried lentils (went back for seconds- so good!), steamed broccoli and baby carrots.
I also had this cute little dessert!
I had an orange and banana for an afternoon snack, but forgot to take photos.
I snacked on snap pea crisps and coconut water while cooking dinner, which was…
Kale pizza with a sweet potato crust! I got the recipe from Rawxy: Foxy Raw Living and it’s so good! I kinda messed up though because I baked the crust on aluminum foil and it got stuck and was a horrible mess to get off. I know better next time and will not make that mistake again. I plan on premaking a few personal sized crusts and freezing them for later.
This is what it looked like before baking and before I topped it with a little vegan parmesan/mozzarella cheese. Yum!
What was the best thing you ate today?
I would have to say that the kale pizza was my favorite today.
