So, I’m not a huge Valentine’s Day person. In fact, I pretty much refuse to “celebrate” on the actual day. It’s not that I’m anti-romance, it’s just…I don’t need a designated day of the year to display my affection, I love Kyle all year long (and I make sure he knows it all year long)!!!
That said. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!!!!
I worked today. What can I say, work was work.
Lunch: sammie with every color bell pepper
Other treats: carob raisins, dried fruit mix, dried pineapple, dried figs, apple, odwalla bar, and lots of silk-ified coffee
Let the record state – carob covered raisins and dried fruit together are my idea of HEAVEN
I also picked up a little treat from the ‘bucks while I was there.
FYI, I’ve literally been to 8 different stores this week looking for SF vanilla syrup, too bad the thought to ask starbucks where I can get some didn’t occur to me a bit sooner…anyways, when I went in to ask them, they said, you can buy it here directly from us. Heyo! If only I’d know that before hitting up every store on the upper west side! I can’t WAIT to add this to my morning coffee.
Like I said, V day is bad for a chocoholic…(even though I now consider myself a reformed caroboholic) – haha, I actually typed carboholic just then (which is equally accurate in describing me)
Half a bar my co-worker shared with me…(I managed to avoid all the bombitters (aka almonds)
My commute home was INFURIATING, but in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ll keep the venting to myself and channel loving thought (just know that the weekend subway sched BLOWS)
Dinner: texturized vegetable protein (vegan) sushi rolls
Plus, vegan soy-tein with spinach
(which I combined with the last of the Fage greek yogurt – nom nom)
Dessert was none other than chocolate!
Chocolate Tofu cup ingredients: tofu, maple syrup, cocoa powder, rice, orange zest, pure vanilla extract, sea salt
Vanilla Tofu cup ingredients: organic tofu, maple syrup, lemon zest, sea salt, cinnamon
**no oil, no sugar, no gluten – pure vegan deliciousness 🙂
The vanilla one was SO SO good, but the chocolate one was just so-so…the best part is the pure ingredients, so I didn’t feel remotely guilty. I hope this dessert wasn’t just a V day special because I could definitely see myself getting this 7 nights a week 🙂
This cute card pretty much wraps up my day…
