Today started with what may be one of the last smoothies of the year. You know what they say; Don't wear white and spill your smoothie on yourself after Labor Day.
This was spinach, frozen blueberries, frozen banana, lemon juice, and a vanilla Vega packet. Definitely would have been a bad one to spill. I also had a spoonful of sunflower butter and raisins.
Lunch was a salad that G and I made the other day - but I added two chopped dried figs into it! I like the sweetness in there with the carrot and beet and the tanginess of balsamic vinegar with pepper.
I stopped at the Farmer's Market and got some apples ($9.60), one of which I snacked on later along with a Vega Green Vibrancy bar. (Geez, I'm really pushing Vega today.)
Dinner was a (vegan FYH) cheese sandwich topped with lots of vegetables. I think that's the biggest reason I can tolerate vegan cheese. This stuff isn't amazing; it lends a cheesy flavor and an analogous texture but I prefer to load on the vegetables and focus on the whole sandwich.
Including mustard, tomatoes, lettuce, sliced zucchini, sauerkraut, and onion. On the 365 Multi Seed bread.
I'm trying to save some money this month (well, hopefully, in the future too) so I'm not sure how much exciting food there will be around here, but we'll see what I can do. If I even just cut out all the ridiculous bars I eat, I'd probably save a lot. In the meantime, I'm trying to keep as strict a tally on it as I can. Do you give yourselves a monthly budget? Or keep track of your spending just for reference?
Anyway, here are some cute gratuitous cat shots, just cuz:
You can see her little snaggletooth emerging as she snores in the first photo! Aiiieee!
