More random meals tonight! The Sunday before last — the day after we found the baby squirrels at 3 am — I was WAY too tired for brunch. We got to bed so late Saturday night, and I can't sleep past 9 am so matter how little sleep I've had. But when I saw that Imagine Vegan Cafe had posted that they were making doughnuts that morning, I knew something HAD to be done about that. So I threw on some pants and drove to Imagine. I had no makeup on, and I'm sure I looked a hot mess, but MUST HAVE DOUGHNUTS. I got this Chocolate Sprinkle Doughnut to go!
Life is all about balance, right? Doughnuts one day, green juice the next. Here's a post-workout Pineapple Greens Juice from Juice Bar, procured after a hill run workout on the dreadmill at the Church Health YMCA in Crosstown Concourse.
FitQuick Protein Waffle! You knew I'd sneak one of these in, right? I had this yesterday morning after my interval run workout. This is a Lemon Poppyseed Protein Waffle with Brown Rice Syrup, Tahini, & Organic Blackberries.
My friend Susan sent me a pic of this Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter when she came across it in Fresh Market, and I HAD to have it. I love anything by Peanut Butter & Company, and pumpkin is one of the few redeeming qualities of fall (well, that and Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving, and soup). I ended up at Fresh Market later that day, so I bought some. Enjoyed here pre-run on a Dave's Cinnamon Raisin Bagel.
My friends Monica and Kelly invited Paul and I over for dinner on Sunday night. We haven't seen them in ages, so it was nice to catch up. Rather than cooking, Monica called in an order for takeout from Noodles Asian Bistro in Bartlett (where they live). I had the Korean Spicy Stir-fry with Tofu. This was tasty, but they were pretty skimpy on the tofu (only four pieces in the whole dish!).
I ate all of my stir-fry that night, but I had lots of brown rice left. Leftover takeout rice is perfect for making fried rice! So that's what I had for dinner on Monday night. Brown Fried Rice with Soy Curls and Veggies. I just used all the veggies I already had in my fridge — peppers, onions, scallions, carrots, and mushrooms.
