Are you scared of the title? Haha…don’t worry, I haven’t gone quite that hummus crazy (yet!).
But I did bake a batch of falafel today, which looked pretty damn similar to (how I would picture) chickpea pastries.
But before I went to town in the kitch, I got my breks-face on.
Coffee. Froth. Bluebeezies. Chobani.
I heart my antioxidants and Chobz knows how to do it right. The store has been running on empty in the greek yogurt department, so I finally was able to re-stock. I actually went to the grocery store at 9 am in an effort to avoid crowds and get some errands out of the way early in the day. Even though I found it to be slightly less crowded, the intellectual capacity of the employees was definitely lesser, too. Hmmm. I was ready for a second breakfast when I got home.
Wawamelon. Alvarado street bread. Mozz Vegan Rella cheese. Apple.
Hummus lurked it’s way into the meal, too…naturally
After my early morning grub session, I popped a grape Kombucha, and set to work in the kitchen. I made big batches of quinoa, tofu, and falafel (lots of work coming up).
I’m not sure why the ingreds/instructions are also in French…but either way, I didn’t follow them.
As soon as I added in the water, I was immediately overwhelmed with the amazingly delicious aroma of falafel. YOWZA!
This is 1 of 2 pans…and it only took 10 minutes to
set the smoke alarm off finish baking. So easy (and healthier than going the deep fried route).
Maybe I should have made them a bit smaller, but now I’ll feel more dainty when I say I only ate 4 (as opposed to 20).
I ate lunch later, since my double breakfast action held me over pretty well into the afternoon…
I had a nice
little massive platter of TWO apples (one yellow, one red) and the last bits of cheddar Vegan Rella “cheese” and then a bowl of quinoa with green goop and hummus.
Does this look like a HEAB creation or what!? Mmmmm…
After some digesting time, I headed to the gym for a bit of cardio a$$ kicking.
20 min elliptical, 10 min bouncy hamster wheel, 10 min spinning bike, 20 min elliptical AND Jillian inspired core training = woo hoo
After I showered I had a chocolate Kids SuperFood, which provided the perfect post workout hydration, along with 500% of my daily green intake (I’m not sure what exactly makes this flavor a kids version exactly…but anyways). I may have snuck a falafel ball, too.
Home-made falafel success! Portion control fail. I probably had about 6 unpictured balls on the side, but they were insanely good, so what’s a girl to do?
I toasted the english muffin before lathering it in roasted red pepper hummus.
Of course I needed some greens in my din din, so I steamed some brocc and topped it with vegan parm, and then had muchos carrots with a drizzle bizzle of Country Bob’s All purpose sauce. Oh, and did I mention I had more falafel?
I’m pretty sure I am going to have dessert, in the form of chocolate, soon. But for now, I’m going to pack my lunch and get to bed.
Happy 31st anniversary Mom & Dad!! Seeing how your love for one another grows each and every day is the perfect model for a happy marriage (once I get past the ick factor)…LOVE YOU!!!
