June 2-3 Food Diary

June 2nd

I spent most of the day running errands (and eating beans, in typical vegan fashion). My car needed a smog check, so I brought it up to the mechanic and walked home. The second I got home, they called me to come pick it up!

I also walked to the grocery store afterwards, but despite all that, I still walked less than I averaged while at college. I miss walking all day and running at night! I wish my hip would get back with the program…

At night I experimented with black beans and made a brownie batter/pudding type dish because I was craving chocolate. Being able to get lots of legume-based protein, fiber, AND chocolate is like a dream come true! Sadly I couldn’t get a good photo because the natural light was long gone… but one of these days I’ll have it for breakfast and photograph it.

This batch of mung bean paste lost its pretty pale yellow color because I added homemade low fat sweetened condensed coconut milk.... totally worth it.

June 3rd

I had to move my brother’s stuff to a storage unit, so I’m pretty sure I went up and down my stairs about 40 times. And moved a lot of boxes. AND lifted weights after all of that!

So I felt like my Sipz (aka restaurant of vegan feasting) date with my boyfriend at night was well deserved. And protein filled and delicious. He also randomly got me flowers 🙂

Peppered “pork” with brown rice and veggies

Also, after moving the stuff into a storage unit (well, round one of doing so), my dad and I revisited our old tradition of Robek’s smoothies. I’m glad it was something I can still have and is actually quite healthy, unlike our other old tradition of fancy crackers and cheese!
