Happy weekend! It's been incredibly hot around here the past couple of days, so it's been hard to force myself outside to do anything. Today I had a bunch of errands to run, so I've been in and out all day. And every time I go out I get so sweaty I need to change my clothes when I come back in. Ugh! But back to recapping yesterday ...
I work from home Fridays, so I got to enjoy my chocolate banana protein shake leisurely as I got to work.
I'm incredibly fortuante to be able to telework two days a week, but it also means I have to be careful because I'm around all my food and I can go whip up a snack anytime I want.
For instance ... yesterday I started to get some hunger-pangs mid-morning so I microwaved a bit of nacho flavored Teese and mixed it with a bit of salsa (like the Velveeta dip!) and ate it with a few chips. I managed to restrain myself and not make a big bowl of this stuff.
For lunch I made one of my favorites, a vegan tuna sandwich using Asmar's vegetarian tuna! Love this stuff.
And then of course I had to snack again mid-afternoon, so I enjoyed a Dole apple mixed berry fruit squish'em. Yeah, it's just apple sauce in a little pouch like all the other brands are doing now. I don't know who the marketing genius was who came up with "fruit squish'em", but I hope they were fired. It's really unappetizing sounding. But it tastes just fine.
Dinner was really the most exciting part of yesterday. And almost the only time I even went outside (once it was much cooler in the evening). My boyfriend and I went out to One World Cafe. They always have a specials menu going, in addition to their fabulous regular menu, and last night's specials were all vegan (except for one).
I ordered black eyed peas with dirty rice and garlic kale. It was really good, but the main reason I ordered it was because it came with a side of blue corn muffins with vegan maple butter. These things are so delicious, it's amazing.
Luckily I went to check on the dessert case just after we ordered and noticed that the vegan cakes were going fast, so I asked the waitress to set aside a piece of vanilla coconut cake too. I'm glad I did, because there were only a few pieces left and all their vegan desserts sell out fast.
The cake was so tasty, but also way too huge to finish at the restaurant, so I had to take half home with me. Two servings of cake for the price of one. Why, thank you!
