Today’s been a fairly busy Saturday- for me, at least!
I was up early to go to spinning at 8, but I spent too long enjoying my breakfast. The class was full- boo! I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the treadmill instead.
At least breakfast was good. Perfect pre-workout food!
After the gym, I raced home, jumped in the shower, and headed to a cooking demo at my favorite vegan restaurant! I’m planning a whole post about this, so no pictures yet 🙂
We didn’t have time to eat at the restaurant, so I came home and made myself a quick lunch.
I filled a whole wheat tortilla with spinach and ricotta cheese, and had an apple with peanut flour butter on the side.
I also had banana soft serve with the other half of the peanut flour butter. I’ve been forgetting I have so many frozen bananas!
Lunch was quick, because right after, I went with my mom and sister to see one of my favorite musicals- HAIR! If you haven’t seen the play or watched the movie, I highly recommend it. The stage version is way different, but I loved it just as much as the movie. This was a Christmas present from my parents, and it was so fun! I don’t see plays as often as I would like to. I’m a sucker for musicals!
I couldn’t decide what I wanted for dinner tonight. It was one of those nights where I was hungry, but not so much that I actually felt like gathering the energy to find something to make. After sitting around for a while debating what to make, I saw a block of tofu in my fridge that was being neglected. I used to eat tofu every day, but when my Costco stopped carrying it, I stopped buying it. I gave in and bought a few blocks at Albertson’s a week or so ago, and I need to use them!
So crispy and delicious. I never press my tofu, but I’ve found if I just leave it alone and let it cook long enough it gets nice and crispy!
To go with the tofu, I got inspiration from my bookmarked recipes in the form of Emily‘s chocolate quinoa. I actually didn’t really follow the recipe, but I added a teaspoon of cocoa powder and a little chili powder to the quinoa.
I also tried my hand at making peanut sauce. No recipe- I just mixed a little peanut flour with a tiny bit of soy sauce and water. Simple, but good!
Most random flavor combinations ever, but it totally worked! Chocolate and peanut butter for dinner- I’ll eat to that!
What’s a flavor combination that you never thought would work but you ended up loving?
What’s your favorite musical? I’m torn between Hair and West Side Story. I know all the words to both movies!
