Today's food may seem boring to some, but it was great to me. I'm trying my best to eat less processed foods and to not eat as much bread and pasta. Bread and pasta are a serious weakness for me, but I'm gonna and can do this! With that being said, last night I had lettuce wraps...well, sorta. I ended up putting way too much stuff on the leafy lettuce, so I had to cut them in half and eat them like a taco. It was still a little messy, but was definitely the way to go. This was so good and refreshing. I didn't feel all bloated and yucky after supper like I do when I load up on cabs. The first thing I put on the leafy lettuce was red pepper hummus, then shredded carrots, broccoli, cauliflower (I'm trying to like it...so far so good), yummy bell peppers, and chopped tomatoes.
After supper I made some of Alicia Silverstone's Oatmeal, Walnut and Dried Plum Cookies. We have a get together to go to tonight, and I was asked to bring my famous vegan cookies. You would think that I would know this recipe by heart now as much as I make it, but I don't. I kept noticing that a cookie would disappear every so often. I was in the kitchen for a while making these and a few other things, so I wasn't paying that much attention to the cookies cooling. It appears that Tony was sneaking in behind me stealing cookies. I made a double batch of them though, because I was suspicious that this might happen.....I knew they were his favorite. Oh and I did eat one myself....shhhhhh :o)
No smoothie this morning. I was running short on time, so I just threw some stuff together for some pumpkin oat meal. I used steel cut oats, almond milk, canned pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds, and a little maple syrup. I mixed all this together in a bowl and threw it in my lunch bag, with a lid on it. After about 2 hours I nuked it in the microwave. Turned out pretty darn good for something just thrown together, as I was running around crazy trying not to be late for work. I also had a Gala apple for my mid morning snack. It was just plain Jane....no almond butter today. :o)
Lunch was a salad. It had everything on it that my lettuce wraps from last night had. I added some nooch though. What could that be that I'm reading while eating my salad? Maud, do you know??? :o) More to come on that in a few days.....
