Oof my belly. I was a little unprepared food-wise today and ended up eating a little too much of things I try to generally eat in moderation...
I had baked matcha muffins on Friday night using this recipe, and ate one for breakfast (with an unpictured banana.) (I also ate the second one in the bag later in the day.)
They're good but they're not LPQ-level. However, I will probably make them again because I have a pricey bag of matcha to use up. I might use some ideas from this recipe too.
THEN, one of my managers at work sent a co-worker, Marta, and I out to buy snacks for our floor as thanks for working on a huge, tedious order a couple weeks ago. She managed to shake $40 out of upper management to feed our little mouths. We gleefully ran through the farmer's market and Whole Foods.
Not all of what we bought was vegan, but a fair amount was, some of it was even gluten-free, and we also took into consideration that another co-worker can't eat chocolate. Here's the spread, and my girl Marta's thumbs up on the sweet job she did presenting the SNAX (this is about half of what we got - the rest was at the managers' desk.)
BEHIND THE SCENES AT YR LOCAL INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE:
middle row: Seaweed rice crackers (v), pita (v), farmer's market apple cider donuts (sadly not v)
front row: Back to Nature cookies - chocolate chip and peanut butter sandwich cookies (both v), mini pumpkin loaves, brownie bites
I ate two pieces of pita with hummus, a couple chocolate chip cookies, some seaweed crackers, and a peanut butter cookie. Not badddd but still oof. AND for lunch, I went to Paradis, where the only vegan option was more gluten:
You might think that was enough food for the day but I made miso soup for dinner:
Now I clutch my stomach and watch Anna Karenina. Good night!
