I couldn’t help myself with the title 😉
How’s your day going?? Mine has been bueno so far. I started out a little bummed because my smoking client called and canceled on me today :/ I’ve lost 2 clients in the past week! It’s hard not to take it personally, as I know other things come up, but stilllllllll….
Here’s the delicious dough from the cookies Megan and I made last night:
Vegan oatmeal chocolate chip (from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan)
I shared one with the pilot for quality control:
And also had some dough 😉
This morning, I overslept (yikers!) and made a lovely purple-brown sludge:
The puppies and I went on a short walk and then I hit up the post office (to mail my enrollment form for 105degrees *insert squeal of excitement* and macaroons for the birthday girl), Target for maple syrup, cleaning stuff and batteries (which somehow cost over $150… muahaha), and the health food store.
Here are the health food store goodies:
Larabars, Mary’s crack, NEW GUM (I’ll let you know how I like it), raw almond butter, white beans, oats and dried cherries (for cookie purposes), coconut (for macaroon purposes) and chickpea miso!
I really liked the ingredients and the option of getting chickpea miso in lieu of the soy-based. (They also had brown rice miso at the store! Super awesome)
It almost looks like nut butter:
I decided to utilize it in today’s lonchi and spread some onto some raw nori wrappers. I topped it with sliced carrots, bell pepper, avocado, cucumber and a little drizzle of almond butter:
After the roll:
And a salad beast with mixed greens, flax oil, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, bell pepper, lemon juice, sea salt, red pepper flakes and hemp seeds.
Amazing little lonchi. I LOVED the nori wrappers with the miso paste and almond butter combo—salty, nutty, crunchy, delicious.
You’ll never guess what I had for dessert 😉
I got a comment yesterday asking what some of my grocery store staples are. It’s a little different in my situation since the stores here don’t have a lot of stuff I like, so I stock up when we go to Orlando or J-ville (or when the madre and nana send care packages). So I have two basic lists for a weekly grocery trip a Valdizzy list and an out-of-town list. I keep a lot of stuff (like spices, condiments, etc on hand so that we only have to buy the fresh stuff or dinner ingredients when we go to the grocery store)
– Fruit (bananas, apples, lemons, limes, avocados, pears, whatever is in season and looks delicious
-Veggies (lots of salad, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes (grape and beefsteak), squash, eggplant, whatever’s in season that looks delicious)
-Almond butter! I eat at least a jar a week 😉
-Coconut (for macaroons)
-Goat cheese (I like the raw cheddar, gouda and jack)
– Beans (garbanzo, white beans, pinto)
-Raw nuts (I always have almond, cashew and walnuts on hand)
-Cereal for the pilot (Puffins!)
-Deli meat and bread for the pilot
-Dinner ingredients (I usually plan out dinners for the entire week on Sunday)
-Treats and peanut butter for the puppies
-Young Thai coconuts
-Organic meat for the pilot
-Dried fruits, nuts, oats, and nutritional yeast from the bulk bins
-Snack-type food from Whole Foods (Annie’s bunnies, Mary’s Curry Twigs, etc.)
-Raw goat cheddar
-Organic produce (as our selection is limited in V-town.. but if we have organic here, I’ll buy it up)
What are your grocery store staples????
Well I’m off to read by the pool for an hour, weights with Jeni, take yoga, teach spin, train a client and then back to the casa to make cookies with Megan 😀
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
