A part of me is glad I didn’t have work today…but then again not. Why no work? Cause there is none..but just you wait until March when migration and breeding season starts…I’ll be surprised if I don’t turn into a bird. It’s gonna be Caraaaaazzzzzeh!
Alas, Vegan Day 1 is still going strong! I was ready for a sandwich at lunch and then realized that uh oh, my bread has whey protein in it! Nuts! Luckily I always have bakery bread on hand and that has as little ingredients as possible! I packed up some vegetable bread with avocado, butternut squash, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, spinach and onion. All sided with a fresh organic kiwi. That baby was delicious!
I spent the afternoon walking to the downtown (~4.5 miles round trip!) to the local German bakery to pick up some more bakery bread that they assured me was vegan, and some metal cat dishes for my baby…since I think that is the culprit for her skin problems. Fingers crossed.
I was a bit hungry after I got home so I ate a few handfuls of chocolate, fruit and nuts trail mix (more chocolate than anything else) that I made and talked running with my aunt and cousins and catching up with my mom. After I felt like my upper body needed some work so I lifted and did some abs for about a 1/2 an hour, then worked on dinner for myself because I was famished! I wasn’t really craving anything specific and just kinda threw things together that were sitting on the counter, and eye level in the fridge.
I baked up a potato in some Indian spices and while that was cooking I stir fried some leftover butternut squash with tempeh and spinach. I had to get some green in there somehow!
I’ve never had tempeh before without any sort of seasoning and I actually really liked it! It has an interesting flavor but I certainly enjoyed it! We’ll see what I use the rest of the tempeh up for this week!
The night’s ending with another Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin and some good ol’ reading to get my mind working…sometimes I need something intelligent to read to make myself feel legit. Hehe…Any books to suggest? I’ve been reading too many romance novels so I want something different!
