Yes, this is avocado toast! YAY! On the 7-Day Rescue, avocados were allowed but just in smaller amounts. But regular Engine 2 allows for more avocados, nuts and seeds, and other whole foods-based fats (no oils though). This avo toast was made extra awesome with smashed salt-free black beans and tomatillo-mango salsa. Plus, I added some sriracha, which I think makes a great salt sub. It has sodium, sure, but in the past I would have added salt and sriracha.
Morning snack was Grapes, Strawberries, and Blueberries.
Lunch was a leftover Tofu Teriyaki Bowl from The Engine 2 Cookbook. Brown rice, baked sesame teriyaki tofu, steamed broccoli, and sriracha. So perfect!
I had spinning class at the Y in my building at 5:30 pm, so I snacked on some more Badass Banana Bread with Raw Almond Butter. This oil-free bread is from The Engine 2 Cookbook, and despite the lack of moistness that you'd get with oil, it's still really tasty. It's hard to describe the texture. It's not dry. Just not moist. Like, it's soft but not greasy. Anyway, very good with almond butter.
After class, I looked out the windows of Crosstown Concourse, and it was POURING. I'd walked to work that morning, and there was no way I could walk home in that. So while I waited, I hit up So Nuts & Confections, our building's nut roastery, because they were having a BOGO sale. They have all kinds of seasoned nuts and candies, and I was tempted to get some high-salt or high-sugar snacks, but instead, I got Raw Walnuts and Roasted Cashews. Both healthier options! I was proud of myself. When my transaction there was done, the rain had let up, so I snacked on nuts on the walk home.
Dinner was a frozen Engine 2 Pinto Habanero Burger on a Sprouted Grain Bun. I topped it was tomatillo-mango salsa, tomato, and lettuce. And I had a salad with Rip's Favorite Ranch (a cashew-herb ranch) from The Engine 2 Cookbook on the side. Y'all these burgers were goooooood! They had a bean and rice base, so they were on the squishier side. But I like a squishy burger when it's bean-based. The habanero flavor really came through, and they were spicy enough for my liking (I'm not usually impressed by habanero flavored things, never hot enough!).
Yay for awesome meals!!
