Vegan Day Four

VD4 was the day of shortcuts.

It all started with one of my favorite breakfasts: Overnight Oats . 


This is a classic Oh She Glows Recipe. The night before you just combine chia seeds, milk of choice, mashed banana, vanilla, and oats. Then in the morning you top it with whatever you like! I topped mine with a pumpkin spice protein bar, almonds, some PB, and blueberries. Fulllsiessss.

I went about my day with Mrs. Juniper. We went to the park, the library, the dry cleaner, the thrift store, and back to a different park. We escorted a crazy runaway dog home. Then we did some homework. Then it was time for lunch.

Lunch was leftover Seitan Carnitas. I didn't take a picture because nobody wants to see a reheated pile of food covered in salsa and cheeze. 

Then another kettlebell workout! I don't know if I have this much energy because I'm eating vegan, or because I'm procrastinating final studying. Probably 50/50.

Then there was dinner. Ohhhh dinner. 

Hot tip: The key to my heart is whole foods salad bar.

 The only problem is I pick up a little bit of everything and then my meal is just weird. But amazing!

Dinner:

  • Sumi Salad
  • Herbed Tofu
  • Brown Rice
  • Baba Ghanoush
  • Morrocan Roasted Carrots
  • Marinated Mushrooms
  • "Chicken" Salad ... because I was curious
The baba ghanoush was by far the best part of this meal. I'd go back and just get that with veggies. Whole Foods makes sure to label its fresh foods as vegan or vegetarian, so it makes for a very easy meal. 



One problem with Whole Foods: I had salad bar with an HonestTea and dessert and it was $16. Yikes. Can't make that a habit without an income...

I will know I have arrived in the world when I can eat and shop at Whole Foods without budgetary concern.

Oh, and then there was dessert!

Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge.


It was $32/lb. Haha. Luckily this $4 chunk was 4 healthy sized servings.


It was freaking delicious.

Yeah, I could do vegan forever as long as I have Whole Foods. Love that place.
