Okay, I said I had NO plans, but what I really meant was that I had very few plans. I did meet some friends for dinner at Imagine Vegan Cafe on Friday night, so that was one plan. It's been so long since I've indulged in plant meat (aside from the Thanksgiving Field Roast), so I was super-stoked to treat myself to Imagine's Philly Cheesesteak with a side of Collard Greens. The sauteed deli slices were all tucked at the bottom and covered in vegan cheese, so you mostly see bread here. But I promise it was a hearty sandwich.
On Saturday morning, I had a Whole Wheat Bagel Thin with Daiya Cream Cheese and Orange Slices before hitting the gym for a double workout — bootcamp and yoga! I've been working to balance vegan junk foods, like cream cheese, with healthier things, like oranges!
Here's another weekend breakfast. More Bagel Thins with Cream Cheese, paired with Tofu Scramble (the awesome oil-free recipe from Health Made Simple).
And about that cat! Since I had no plans on Saturday night, I spent the evening cuddled up under a blanket with my cats (this little guy is Gelfling, and he loves a blanket-chair-cuddle night) and a bowl of Popcorn with Nooch while we watched the new season of Making a Murderer. Popped the popcorn in coconut oil. Oil-free is great for many things, but it is not good for popcorn (sorry, not sorry).
Finally, here's my smoothie from this morning. I RAN TODAY! Just two miles, but I did it with zero pain. Even hours later, my foot feels a-okay! After my run, I had a post-workout snack of white rice, and then about an hour later, I had this Cranberry Mixed Berry Smoothie with cranberry juice (not from concentrate), banana, fresh cranberries, cherries, blackberries, strawberries, flax, and spinach. Very holiday-ish!
