Happy Earth Day!! Did everyone do something nice and green today?
I contacted my hospital’s big-wigs to
beg ask about an initiative promoting biking to work (and requesting to get a small protected room to store the staff hippies’ bikes). C’mon Beth Israel, get green!! This is something I have been trying to get going for a while, so now that the weather is getting nice, and in honor of Earth Day, I figured an extra push may be well received. We’ll see…
You know how I rocked it out this morning…with a cuppa joe 🙂
And later on some grub…
Step 1: place cubed tofu in pan Step 2: toss in spinach
Step 3: sit on your a$% Step 4: add in “egg”
Step 5: stir and try not to burn your tongue when you do the inevitable taste “test”
Step 6: plate whatever is leftover after you’ve scorched the roof of your mouth because of your lack of patience…and ENJOY!
Needed the crunch factor, too. An apple a day, right?
Later in the afternoon, my tummy started growling, so I decided on some toast with plain greek yogurt. I know this sounds weird, but I think I’m onto something here!! Chobani can do no wrong.
Has anyone tried Tofutti’s “better than cream cheese”? I kinda wanna try it, but it’s one of those products I always end up passing on while at the grocery store (in the interest of preserving my wallet/bank account). I’d imagine it could be good on toast like my above invention. Opinions?
(insert gym here)
I really wasn’t feeling the exercising today, so I opted for lots of mat work (arms, abs, stretching, etc.)…I’m supposed to be tapering for the half marathon this weekend anyways, so I don’t feel too guilty.
refueled gobbled down some perfectly crunchy carrots with my one-and-only lover SABRA. Chunky!! I don’t know how or why, but chunky is WAY better than smooth…plus the containers are double the size. How can I resist?!?
We now interrupt this post with a super important topic…
I need help. I am getting nervous about my soymilk consumption and looking to switch things up a bit. Gotta keep that estrogen intake in check. Plus I know other bloggers out there are fans of a wide variety of non-milk milks. So what are my alternatives?
- hemp milk
- almond milk
- rice milk
- cashew milk
Who has tried these and what are your opinions? Also, if you don’t like nuts, do the almond/cashew choices taste anything like nuts? I think they are from a non-nut part of the plant, but I’ll admit, I haven’t done my research…hey, that’s what you guys are for!
Any others I’m missing? Also, unsweetened vs. sweetened? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!!
Ok, back to the good stuff. DINNER.
Salad challenge. Hummbecue – because 25 servings of hummus a day just ISN’T enough for the growing girl 🙂
I practically DUMPED my tofu in BBQ sauce and SABRA hummus, plus onions, and red bell peppers…although the BBQ sauce seems to be the dominant ingred by the looks of the photo. There’s also half an avocado in there somewhere…
Dessert was quite a treat.
This my friends, is chocolate/strawberry tofu “cheesecake” aka an “o” in my mouth…
