I interrupt this blog post before it begins to announce that (apparently) peanut flour has been discontinued! I have plans on cashing a paycheck and stocking up as soon as possible. If you are going to any Trader Joe’s within a 50 mile radius of me… I apologize in advance. Just kidding… but seriously 🙂
I got an extra hour of sleep this morning by skipping the gym! I thought it would be a good idea to go in between classes this afternoon… not really.
My eats were pretty repetitive today. Breakfast quinoa-
Pumpkin yogurt with a Vitatop- (doesn’t travel well!)
I also snacked on a ton of fruit and an apple with peanut flour butter later in the day.
I packed up all of my food, including dinner, to take to school with me. I have class on Wednesday nights, and I planned to work out in between dropping my sister off and going to class again (it’s a different campus.) Long story short- I ended up dropping the night class, thank God. I can take it next semester in Colorado, so I don’t have to worry about it transferring. Thank God!
A day of eats:
I ended up working out at 5 p.m. instead of 5 a.m. You know what the difference is between the two? All of the machines are taken! Ugh.
I came home to a rare sight- my sister making dinner! She and my mom were making stuffed peppers, and I wasn’t about to turn down a meal.
Remember when I said that I was going to cook for my family once a week? With my suddenly free night, I was going to cook for them, but they beat me to it!
A poblano pepper stuffed with black beans and veggie meat mixed with taco seasoning. I actually think I prefer poblanos to bell peppers for stuffing. This was so good! Food always tastes better when you don’t make it yourself, right? I asked my sister to plate it and photograph it for me too, but she wasn’t interested. Baby steps…
I missed the ‘vegan’ episode of Oprah yesterday, but I’ve read a few posts about it, and from the sound of things, she’s really pushing fake meat products, which has some people up in arms. My take? I don’t think fake meat products are especially delicious or should be the cornerstone of a healthy vegan diet, but once in a while, they can be pretty good!
Do you ever eat fake meat? I don’t particularly like most fake meat products, and they’re pretty expensive, but I do love Morningstar crumbles occasionally!
