Time To Slow Down.

5 06 2008

Whew. Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I was extremely busy trying to wrap up graduation stuff and had a dinner with my dad and his boss to “celebrate” my “coming into the world” haha. I didn’t take any pictures of my dinner because my dad’s boss’ wife made the dinner and we ate at their house-I felt it would be a little awkward if not rude. She knew I was vegan though and made an incredible dish of lentil salad served along with a bountiful harvest of veggies and brown rice. It was DELICIOUS. Thank you!!

I’ll post pictures of my breakfast and lunch though. Yesterday was a snacky day, but I felt like my tummy could use the fuel.

Breakfast was fresh fruit. I wasn’t in the mood for a big bowl of oats, so I had 2 peaches, a huge mango, and some celery.

Later on that morning I had a baby banana and a cup of tea+vanilla soy.

Lunch was a veggie wrap with spinach, mushrooms, avocado, and tomato. It was hearty and delicious. I also had some steamed broccoli and a baby banana on the side as well as the rest of the celery from the AM with a bit of salsa (i didn’t finish the salsa). For a snack later that afternoon I had some air popped popcorn and green tea. yum.

Alrighty, now for Thursday morning-I was running really late for my hair appointment so I grabbed a big bowl of strawberries and ate them on the way to the salon.

I know this was a lame breakfast, but it did hold me over until I could come home for lunch. I had another veggie wrap this time with spinach, mushrooms, and tomato only. I went back for a second wrap soon after this one but forgot to snap a picture. Now I’m full, happy, and need to get a move on with my day-after taking a breather of course. 😉

My mom and I went to the H-Mart in Carrollton yesterday and got a lot of Korean food. Dinner tonight is going to be AMAZING! I can’t wait!

Enjoy your thursday!!

First Attempt.

Since I had a pretty low key morning, I decided to give vegan baking a try. I flipped through many cookbook pages and scoured the internet and came up with a combination of a few recipes to create Vegan Cranberry Oat Bran Muffins. For my first time at vegan baking, I think my muffins came out pretty tasty. My mom and dad enjoyed them and I must say they made quite a tasty morning snack. I would post the recipe, but I’m not sure if it would be plagiarism… I mean, I didn’t copy a recipe but I studied the combinations from various recipes and created this one based on others. I’d rather be safe than sorry though.

and here is one sloppily cut open for my morning snack 😀 I’m going to have to get better at cutting the muffins open to reveal a real treat. I promise these were good though!

Lunch was a bit later than usual due to having that muffin as a snack. I wasn’t particularly hungry, but I knew I needed something before heading into work. I decided on a whole wheat pita stuffed with baby spinach and mushrooms. On the side I had more of the INCREDIBLE blueberries, some baby carrots, and a pickle. I couldn’t forget the salsa to accompany my carrots either. 😛 I Washed it all down with the usual water. This lunch was quick, satisfying, and filling. Now I’m ready to finish my last workday.

I did make it to Whole Foods today for ingredients to create my dinner. I’ve been eying this recipe on another blog for quite some time and am really excited to try it out. My brother and I are going on another run tonight. I’m going to push myself to keep up again. I just adore running-it has to be one of my favorite things to do without a doubt. It’s just so relaxing. ❤ See you all tonight!





Ready, Set, GO!

Hi! Welcome to my new blog. I was a blog reading enthusiast and finally decided to start my own blog. I really enjoy good food and healthy living so I wanted to start my own food blog. =)

I hope to show people that you can be busy and eat healthy. I also would love to share my daily activities on the blog as I make it through college.

A few words to sum me up… runner, vegan, foodie, future-doctor. =D

Alrighty! Let’s get started!

Breakfast was a bowl of multigrain cereal+blueberries. It was super tasty and very filling. This is probably what I eat nearly every day. With a fruit variation of course. I sipped on some hot tea on the side. This definitely fueled me for the day out with the mom.

Lunch was fresh and wonderful. I made myself a spinach+red bell pepper+pickle+green onion wrap on a whole wheat lavash. On the side I had some carrots+salsa and strawberries. I rehydrated with a nice bottle of water. This lunch was SO good. It was filling and delicious. I needed something quick because I was pretty hungry when I got home from running errands. This totally hit the spot and fueled my body to go to the park with the brother and the dogs. I got in a great hike+walk with the dogs and brother. It sure was hot, but it felt good. My brother and I actually have plans to go on a run later on tonight. When I got home from the park I was pretty hot and wanted a little snack so I made myself a cup of tea+vanilla soymilk and had a nice cool sugar-free popsicle with it. This cooled me down and gave my tummy a nice treat. =)

Dinner should be pretty tasty tonight. Nothing special, but it should be good. Tomorrow I’m planning on creating an amazing dinner. See you all tonight!
