...but not together. That would be weird. This morning kicked off with a steamy bowl of my special Cheezy Bacon Grits:
The recipe is going in the cookbook since grits are a staple at the Southern breakfast table. And honestly, there's no better way to eat yellow corn grits than with vegan cheeze and crumbles of tempeh bacon. I read on someone's blog awhile back that grits aren't available in some areas of the country! Shocking! But I believe the ingredients in this recipe would work well with steel cut oats as well. I'm a recent savory oat convert.
Though the grits kept me full for hours, I couldn't wait until lunchtime when I could dig into one of Melody's AMAZING Homemade Veggie Dogs:
The recipe is a tester for Melody at the Melomeals: $3.33 a Day blog. She made them awhile back and I begged her for the recipe. So she was nice enough to let me test it. I'm now convinced that Melody is a genius! These taste so much like storebought dogs, but way, way better. I doubt I'll ever buy a processed veggie dog again.
I won't divulge what's in 'em since I believe the recipe is going in Melody's upcoming e-cookbook. But trust me when I say, this recipe alone is worth buying her book.
I topped my dog with Zukay Horseradish Relish (the kind with live probiotic cultures) and served it with leftover tortilla chips from Blue Coast Burrito, Zukay Hot Salsa (more cultures), and a spinach salad with radishes and almonds.
As for dinner, well, I'm saving that post for tomorrow. The nice daylight was gone when I returned home from yoga by 7:30 p.m., so I'll shoot that meal when I eat the leftovers for lunch.
