It's that time again when I dump my photos of the week on ya. None of these meals warranted an entire post. But all were delicious and awesome.
On days when I run, I have protein smoothies for breakfast to help speed muscle recovery. But on days when I cross-train or do yoga, I have nice, solid, sit-down meals. They always start with a fresh juice. My latest fave is the Mexican Afternoon Juice from Crazy Sexy Juices & Succulent Smoothies. It has carrot, celery, roma tomato, cilantro, and lemon.
And I've been following that with Breakfast Sandwiches! This one has tofu Veggs (slices of firm tofu coated Vegg vegan egg yolk and fried in a skillet), Upton's Seitan Bacon (because my Whole Foods FINALLY carries this!), Daiya Provolone, and Ezekiel sprouted grain bread.
On Saturday, our Food Awareness vegetarian meet-up group had lunch at Grawemeyer's downtown. It's a German-American restaurant with a few vegan and vegetarian options. They're letting us have our Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale event in front of their restaurant next month, so we chose this place for our March monthly meeting. I ordered the Hummus Plate — roasted red pepper hummus, carrots, celery, red pepper, banana pepper, roasted tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, and toast.
And perhaps the greatest thing I've eaten all week was this amazing BBQ Veggie Pizza from Pyro's Fire Fresh Pizza. It's a local build-your-own pizza chain, and they have Daiya vegan cheese! And they have BBQ sauce as a base! I added roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, mushrooms, banana peppers, roasted garlic, and green onions. My parents came to visit on Sunday afternoon, and this is where we had lunch.
Of course, I had a local craft brew on the side — Memphis Made Lights Out, a dark Belgian wit beer.
