Today was very food focused, apart from a five hour gap in which i had to go to stoopid work- which was boooring.
Last night I chucked cut up mango and vanilla soy yogurt in the freezer, thus creating my breakfast for the morn. I think I'll call it mango & 'cream' bowl, it was sooo good! On top I sprinkled some brazillian nuts which had been food processed cause I love eating them all ground up. It was such a yummy breakfast and good for cooling me down cause it is so hot down here.
For a snack I tried the Kitz bar I posted about yesterday, it was Goji Berry and Choc Chip flavor and it was divine, I liked it better than the apple, vanilla and cinnamon one I tired. The buckwheat kernels just made the bar really crunchy and delicious I'm definitely getting more of these A.S.A.P.
I was hungry for lunch after work, mum wanted me to use up the tofu in the fridge that I'd opened the other day. I didn't know what I felt like but after seeing a jar of all natural crunchy peanut butter sitting on the bench I decided tofu and peanut butter would be a dynamite combo, so i spread it on top with some of the ground brazillian nuts from this morning that I hadn't used and tossed them in the grill.
I then proceeded to cut up mushrooms (I LOVE mushrooms) with spanish onion and baby spinach which I lightly cooked in the fry pan and ate alongside some raw green beans.
My nutty tofu, which I'd been expecting to be brilliant (after all what isn't brilliant when peanut butter is involved?) wasn't all that great, it tasted a little bland but I'm determined to try again with some other ingredients added, maybe tamari or something, any suggestions??
Dinner was *drumroll please* ....seitan!
A BIG thanks to Theresa from The Tropical Vegan for supplying me with the recipe. It was brilliant, so yum, not at all what I expected it to taste like, but really, really delicious all the same. And so filling too. I enjoyed my seitan with some cut up carrot sticks and kalamata olive and cashew dip, as well as some snow peas.
Now I'm off to do a quick bike ride and read something- i don't know what yet.
Catch you soon, keep smiling :)
