More Stuff I Ate

After yesterday's doughnut-apalooza post, I'm afraid tonight's round-up of random meals won't be as exciting. But here goes.

I had one of my favorite breakfasts one day last week — Scrambled Vegan Eggs with Toast and Onion Butter. To get my Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg super-fluffy, I whip the powder with ice-cold water in my Vitamix. It almost doubles the size of the eggs because they get super-fluffy. After they cook up, I sprinkle the eggs with lots of black salt. The onion butter comes in a jar. It's made by Viana.

I stopped by LYFE Kitchen downtown for a quick brunch after an early Saturday board meeting a couple weekends ago. Got the Morning Veggie Wrap with tofu scram, Daiya, avocado, and veggies. Last time I got this, LYFE was out of vegan cheese and didn't bother to tell me before they served me a cheese-less wrap. I was bummed. But this time, I made sure they had vegan cheese before I ordered. The cheese completes this wrap.

Another breakfast — Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Waffles with Peanut Butter Maple Syrup. For the PB syrup, I mixed PB Lean powdered peanut butter with maple syrup instead of water. Genius, I know!

My mom was in town last Wednesday night because we had tickets for the touring Broadway production of Dirty Dancing! Before the show, we had dinner at Midtown Crossing Grill, home of the Bianca Banh Mi (a vegan tofu/hummus banh mi named after me!). I had a green salad with wasabi vinaigrette with mine, and my mom had potato salad. My mom loved the sandwich! We also loved the show.

Still eating lots of ramen. That will never change. Here's a bowl with Koyo Garlic Pepper Ramen, Baked Tofu, Squash, and Green Peas. 

Some friends and I met up at Genghis Grill a few Fridays ago. It's a build-your-own stiy-fry bowl chain. I always go a little crazy with spice and heat on these, but it was still tasty. Udon noodles, tofu, and just about every veggie they had. I added spicy hot salt, garlic-chili paste, jalapenos, and sriracha, so my mouth was on fire. 

I had some way healthier noodles from I Love Juice Bar last weekend. I stopped by on Juice Bar's one-year anniversary because they were offering 20% off juices. I got the Mean Greens Juice (cucumber, kale, spinach, jalapeno, parsley, and lemon), and owner Scott gave me a free Pad Thai to try! It's a new menu item.

I took the pad thai home and had it for dinner that night. It's made with sweet potato noodles and a yummy peanut sauce. And it's topped with lots of raw cashews and fresh cilantro. Most of the cashews ended up on the bottom of this bowl because they were in the top of the to-go cup, and I just dumped it out into a bowl. This was wonderful and made me feel so healthy and awesome!

Those fluffy vegan eggs look amazing! Everything looks amazing! I've never had sweet potato noodles.

Oh man, we recently lost our Genghis Grill in ATX. We miss it a lot!

I will take your suggestion to try blending the vegan egg to get it super fluffy. I found the texture a bit rubbery the time I tried them.
