Happy Wednesday, all!
Is it really Wednesday already- i’m in awe of where the week has gone. Where all the days, weeks, and months have gone, for that matter. As with any break, I’m hoping to soak up every last minute of every day!
I had a couple delicious, nourishing, and awesome tasting meals yesterday I wanted to share- one using raw greens with my new cocoa- nut lime hummus, and the other cooked using eggs. Both of which were off the wall.
Take my breakfast- eggs n’ kale.
So. Darn. Good.
Who knew kale and eggs could go SO amazingly well together? Only us veggie lovers, I presume. :-)
Me and my mom’s conversation about the oddness of my breakfast:
“You’re having kale n’ eggs for breakfast– really? Sounds like a very odd combo to me. ” Mom.
“Yep, it’s totally tasty. I’ll have to make it for you sometime!” Me.
And that’s how our conversation went over. Just like all of our other conversations about my weird food combinations go over
The above meal was pretty darn up there taste and look wise, but then there’s my lunch: raw and vegan, but oh so tasty.
Enter rainbow chard wraps lunch…..
- 2 huge rainbow chard leaves
- Cocoa- nut lime hummus (nearly 3/4 of the batch!)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 banana
- Cinnamon (lots)
- Shredded coconut
- Drizzle of almond butter and chia seeds atop.
This lunch was a match made in heaven- everything went SO well together,
Many of you were asking how long the cocoa- nut hummus– featured in yesterdays post– would last me. Well my friends, let’s just say there’s a matter or a few bites left of it. Yep- it was that good.
Raw or cooked, both meals were amazing. Goes to show how you don’t have to limit yourself to one set diet- strict, raw, vegan or cooked, greasy meat eater. While I don’t eat meat, I still include eggs and some dairy, but I do enjoy both cooked and raw meals. Flexibility is so key, as it’s a skill you’ll have to use throughout your life.
On another note, I highly suggest you go visit Chocolate- Covered Katie’s page before 1 pm today. She’s having a bidding bake sale in honor of the traumatizing events that happened in Japan. Yummy, wholesome vegan desserts and helping out a good cause? Now it can’t get better than that!
Off to enjoy the next few hours before heading to work.
