What I Ate Wednesday – Love Your Veggies #2

Hello readers!

Although I only did one other WIAW post this month, I wanted to get in some more veggie time in my daily eating pics so here goes:

I started my day off with my favorite breakfast: oatmeal with cacao, maca, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and coconut butter! I even added some carrot to up my veggie intake.

For lunch I had some good ol’ curried miso soup, made with chickpeas, carrots, broccoli and spices. Yum!

For a snack, I had some apple with a homemade chocolate-cinnamon almond butter creation that was AMAZING. Recipe coming soon 🙂

Ok, uhh yeah. This was supposed to be a picture of some incredible vegan mole tofu tacos with greens and radishes from Papalote but you know what? I was so hungry and they were so tasty so this is all that was left.

And what date night would be complete without some sweets? After dinner, we walked off gorging ourselves took a lovely walk around the Mission and got cozy at a cafe with some almond milk chai and a chocolate chip peanut butter cookie 🙂

And that’s all folks! I gotta run and finish making some sugar-free cupcakes before my husband gets home. Take care!

Hey there folks!

Well I usually post a list of fantastical things from the web on Mondays but yesterday was a TOTAL bust. Let’s just say that I had somewhat of a meltdown revolving around the fact that we have no money right now (and I am about to start medical school…) It was a bad time, ending in a bingefest at our local favorite veg*n diner. What sounded like a great idea (milkshakes! veggie burgers and crispy fries!) just ended up making me feel worse 😦

Since we are all human and make mistakes, I recorded a video about nutritional mishaps and how to deal with the aftermath. My internet is too slow right now for me to post it but hopefully I can get it up and running tomorrow…

In the meantime, enjoy some of the fun things I have found in the virtual world:

Need some inspiration to take your practice to the next level? Check out these extreme yoga poses!

Living Holistically wrote an article about the dangers of diet soda (and this time, it includes weight gain…eep).

These charred corn tacos from Smitten Kitchen look perfect for summer (and could easily be veganized by substituting avocado for the cheese). And if you aren’t a fan of charring the corn yourself, Trader Joe’s has some frozen charred corn kernels on sale right now!

Gabby B (of Spirit Junkie fame) has some great videos, including this one about how to accept+release emotions.

And for my naughtier readers, these chocolate espresso cupcakes from vegansaurus look pretty amazing.

And that’s what I got for ya this week. Have a great one!
