This weekend I came down with a case of gastro and spent my Saturday at home, being sick. I started feeling better Sunday and went into work but I was still really tiered and out of it and have been since. Today seems like a new start and I can get back to normals life. Its crazy how quickly being sick can throw you out of balance and out of your routine.
For the last week, I had no desire to sit down and write anything here and my meals were all measly if there at all. I also have not exercised all week and I really need a good kick in the butt to get me moving again or I might just sit here eating ginger cookies until I die a very plump old lady.
Besides all that, the only news is that I am going to be selling these cakes at a vegetarian takeout place called Juicy Lotus. I’m really ecstatic since this is exactly what I have seen myself doing and it will give me some experience in this field so maybe I can expand my business and sell in more places around the city. I can’t wait to see where this take me!
SO now for the mish mash of meals I managed to picture this week.
This is a plate of salads I picked up after work on sunday from Juicy Lotus which is conveniently right across the street from where I work!. One was sesame carrot, the other was roasted vegetable and the last is vermicelli with mushrooms and vegan shrimp (they were really and shrimp-y to my surprise!).
Monday, I had leftover spaghetti which had a creamy cashew spinach sauce and some confetti sprouts with a side of quinoa, topped with hummus and n.y. and the odd-looking salad is actually a spring roll that I took the wrapper off of because it was hard and its topped with some peanut sauce.
Random lunch, but I really liked how the red and white quinoa mix turned out.
A be-eutiful salad with spiralized zucchini on top.
And last but definitely not least,
my ginormous lunch today
It may not look like much but there were a lot of vegetables in that bowl.
It had broccoli, brussels, carrots, and I threw half a head of steamed cauliflower in the blender with some salt and hummus to make a mock potato mash. I topped all this with some confetti sprouts and hummus sauce. Yummy!
and I just had one of these now
These bars are really light and not at all too sweet. Their all natural, GMO-free, sweetened with agave and I can recognize everything on the ingredients list and its all whole foods. All in all I really like them, and I’m not one to buy packaged food as you probably have guessed, but these always seem to get into my shopping basket!
I’ll be heading out on a run..
around 3 if I can drag my lazy bum off this couch! It’s really a beautiful sunny day so I hope that it will be enough to motivate me but if I’m feeling lazy I might just got for a walk which has been the only thing my body had wanted to do as far as exercise this past week.
All for now!
