It’s difficult to track a full day of eats, with work and running around, so here is a combination of things from the last couple days.
Breakfast on-the-go, at work! TJ’s blueberry muesli (it’s so good!) with chia seeds, fresh blueberries from the store, and soymilk poured in about 5 minutes before eating. In a glass ball jar, eaten with my bamboo To-Go Ware spoon!
Roasted yellow squash (from Door-to-Door Organics package!) over a bed of baby romaine, and bean salad.
A lovely meal out with the family at Park Grill in Millennium park. Chilled green tomato gazpacho, followed by Sardinian couscous with grilled veggies: acorn squash, portobello, and asparagus. I was pleasantly surprised by this meal, as I always remembered this place being more of a traditional meat and fish type of restaurant. (They had some really good looking dinners for carnivores, I just didn’t order them)
Snacks & Sweet Treats
Tropical pre workout smoothie – 1 scoop amazing grass lemon lime energy powder, 1 cup non-dairy milk, 1 frozen banana, 8-10 frozen mango chunks
Split banana & nut butters! Left – creamy roasted almond butter, right – sunflower, both from TJ’s of course.
a few slivers of this high-protein, vegan, gluten-free cheesecake! I used Katie’s Cheesecake Mousse for the filling and a crust from Allyson at Manifest Vegan. I cut the sugar in the crust, and sweetened the filling with a bit of agave and powdered sugar. This is by far the best thing I ate all day.
banana-coffee-chip muffins, a recipe modified from my Vegan Brunch cookbook. Needs a little more tweaking, a bit too chewy – but the flavor is there. And the caffeine, oh boy.
Feast your eyes, foodies!
