Breakfast: Rising Sun smoothie, cuppa Joe with half Cafe Du Monde coffee + chicory
I love this mug. G and I found two on the streets in Gowanus two years ago. This says Lapin, French for rabbit. The other one said Grenouille - it was a picture of a frog on a green mug but I think it's since been broken.
After breakfast I went into the city for a Trader Joe's haul. Low Sodium roasted pistachios, fresh herbs for Thanksgiving, dried cranverries, GF brown rice bread, a few snack bars, almond butter (new packaging since its return), unsweetened applesauce, Irish Breakfast tea, and Vanilla & Cinnamon black tea! I used to love that stuff and had forgotten about it! I've been drinking a lot of tea in the evenings, though, so I wanted something I'd enjoy. After this I stopped by the bookstore briefly and went to the Farmer's market (bought two smallish sugar pumpkins for Thanksgiving for $5.25)
Snacks from the haul throughout the day:
Caramel Nut Brownie Luna Bar. You can trick yrself into thinking it's candy.
For lunch I had made another recipe fromIsa Does It, as temperatures were at 27* today. This is Sweet Potato Red Curry with Rice and Purple Kale. (I used green kale I HOPE THAT'S OKAY WITH EVERYONE.)
Swimming in a coconutty sea. Ginger, onions, coconut milk, and red curry paste made this smell amazing as it cooks. It's sweeter and not as spicy as I thought it would be but it's delicious. Plus the texture of kale is great in soups.
more snacking. Gala apple from the farmer's market the other day.
As you can see, there was a lot of random handfuls of food to mouth throughout the day so I wasn't super hungry for a proper dinner. I also cooked some chickpeas for the week and popped a couple of those in my mouth, and made a cornbread. Ate some of that right out of the oven, and more of it with cranberry-apple butter and the vanilla cinnamon tea.
"Full as Fuck," I believe they say. Or at least I do.
