Hi guys. Today was a little untypical in terms of food because plans were up in the air. It is my momma's birthday (Hi Mom!) and my sister just graduated college (HI LIZ) so I thought I might be heading to the folks' after work to celebrate but they are busy and whatnot. I didn't want to pack a big deal for lunch and then have to carry the tupperware around in my bag. Plus I bought a sandwich yesterday and pretty much had to eat the damned thing so it wouldn't go bad (I was out for the night and thought I might need it but then I realized I'm OCD and can't eat "on the go"). Turns out the shortcuts where unnecessary. Still, I feel pretty good. I was energized throughout the day and never stuffed. I'm not trying to eat like this often but sometimes quick and easy is plenty acceptable.
Breakfast was a smoothie:
Spinach, 3 frozen strawberries, 1 banana, 1/3 mango, Vega natural protein powder, shredded coconut, flax, lemon juice, ginger.
I snacked on a not-so-great organic Fuji apple at 11:30.
Lunch was in two parts. This sandwich as I ran errands on lunch at 2:
I thought I liked this flavor but it turns out I don't. It was mostly cabbage and then some weird flavor I couldn't quite pick out. Not spicy at all and I'm not sure what made it "Hawaiian-Taste." Oh well, it kept me full until 5, when I ate these: Red pepper and carrot sticks.
When I got home I ate the other half of the red pepper and grilled up some Tofu Pups leftover from a HOT DOG PARTY G and I had the other week.
Topped with raw, local kim chee (so good), mustard and ketchup. I swear I had a salad on the side but I can't load the picture. For dessert I had two of the biscuits with raw honey and a date. Also tea because I'm trying to get some writing done tonight.
Speaking of birthdays, G's brother's birthday is on Sunday so we're having his fam over for dinner. It should be fun!
So - I know vegans are always supposed to be prepared in terms of carrying food but apparently I need to come up with something better than those pre-made sandwiches. What do you guys pick up in a pinch? (Besides bars - I eat too many of those already)
