Today was the coolest day we've had in a while (at 79 degrees...) and I'm so excited for the weather to start turning! However, I still have a lot of leftover photos from the summer to share that highlight the bounty of the season. Looking back:
GF toast with Earth Balance and apricot jam
Courtesy of G, vegan hot dog (Tofu Pup) with ketchup, mustard, and a pickle. You have to do it at LEAST once a summer.
I sprouted lentils! Raw protein! Lookit them cute lil tails. Raw lentil salad with sprouts, yellow squash, carrots, chard, capers, and black pepper.
Baseball game with mom. She got a veggie dog, I got a pretzel and YES those are tomato slices on the side. I had to get some vegetables into the meal!! Also: great seats.
New juice from Whole Foods. So nice I bought it twice.
more lentil sprouts. Here, in a salad with avocado and mushrooms.
blackberry season, hell f-in yeah.
Tamari almonds. Too easy to eat.
Pepitas and raisins. Also very easy to eat.
Sometimes summer means you are out all night and wake up 10 minutes after you were supposed to leave for work. Hence, buying bars for breakfast with false promises of energy. But, hell, they taste good.
Same rushed morning thingy, less money.
mostly raw tacos! These are warmed corn tortillas, but filled with sprouted lentils, chopped mushroom, yellow squash, tomato, onion and avocado. Topped with salsa verde.
Smoothie bowl: two frozen bananas blended with light coconut milk, protein powder, and spirulina. With blackberries.
LIKE I SAID
Summer walks in forests bring forth treasures.
Sometimes not leaving yr building because it is too hot happens too.
At least I am grateful I do not have long, black fur covering my entire body. Though, come Winter....
