Let me tell you- if I wasn’t doing this fitness class challenge, I would not have gone to cycling this morning! My bed was feeling really comfy this morning, and I was sad to leave it behind. I’m glad I ended up going, though. I think the instructor was new, so the class was a little funky, but she played Genesis (I have a deep affection for Phil Collins) so it wasn’t all bad 🙂
Everyone’s comments on time management inspired to me to make my breakfast last night, so I had even more time to enjoy it. You know what that means- overnight oats!
I used almond milk, vanilla yogurt, chia seeds, peanut flour butter and dried cherries. I really prefer vanilla yogurt to plain. It makes the oats taste like ice cream!
I also brought tea to school-
And some clementines. I get way too excited when I see the seasonal stickers.
Lunch was delicious, albeit missing veggies-
I had scrambled eggs on a sandwich thin spread with honey nut cream cheese (I’m all out now 😦 ), pumpkin yogurt with a Vitatop (also out of these!) and an apple with dessert hummus (no chocolate- I’m out of cocoa powder!) I think I need to go grocery shopping…
To make the dessert hummus, I just blended chickpeas with agave and pumpkin pie spice. Ultimate lazy recipe… and it tastes so good.
Does anyone remember that song ‘Killer Tofu’ from the show Doug? I didn’t remember until my sister started singing it recently (she has a creepy propensity for lyrics).
I think tofu is a food that everyone thinks they hate until they try it. I tried it for the first time about two years, when I went vegan for the first time. I can still remember the exact dinner I used to eat every single night- grilled tofu on top of spinach, with vegan cheese and two tablespoons of olive oil. Uh, yeah, not very appetizing… but I still loved tofu!
I don’t eat it nearly as much anymore, and lately I’ve been having more chocolate tofu mousse than regular tofu. However, I got a craving for some grilled tofu this afternoon and knew exactly what I was having for dinner.
I don’t normally press my tofu, but I decided to give it a try to see if it cooked faster. There’s a really scientific process behind this tofu press-
Just kidding, I just wrapped it in a paper towel and put some plates on top. I got home from work and took it out, and it was nice and drained.
I also never marinate my tofu, so I mixed maple syrup with pepper (can you say obsessed with maple syrup?!) and coated the tofu before cooking it.
On the side, I had some quinoa mixed with green onions and nutritional yeast and brussels sprouts. It’s no secret I love sweet and savory, and this was delicious!
I also had a bag of popcorn and applesauce, cereal and dried cranberries together. I am still hungry!!
Tofu- love it or hate it?
