First Attempt.

2 06 2008

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!
