-The usual, 1 part 100% juice, 4 parts water
-Coffee Mix (1/5 packet of hot chocolate, half decaf, half regular coffee – all free in our breakroom – except the splash of soymilk I add!)
-Apple & granola
-Pasta & veggies (one of my rare visits to our company cafeteria – these were both sides to a piece of salmon so I just asked for the sides).
-Banana with almond butter
-Dark chocolate milky way mini (out of someone’s candy jar – no matter how shitty this stuff tastes compared to good quality natural chocolate, I still eat them every once in awhile!)
-After work I went to an open house for Compassionate Action for Animals, a great organization I just started volunteering for. They had a vegan spread including bruschetta, salad, spring rolls, and cookies, all delicious – so nice to go to an event and be able to eat everything, knowing there’s nothing nasty in it.
I raved about the spring rolls so much that Nathan decided to make some of his own for dinner. We just bought a big bag of pre-shredded cabbage & carrot mix, some bean sprouts, rice noodles, spring roll wrappers and cilantro. One package of the wrappers makes a lot so the whole thing is pretty cheap and easy once you get the hang of wrapping them.
We kept all our veggies raw. Nathan made his standard simple peanut sauce with PB, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, water, and spices. He doesn’t have a recipe, but it’s probably something like this one (minus the lime juice, but that’d be good too.)
I also had a big bowl of frozen veggies (corn, carrots, green beans, peas) with a little olive oil, nutritional yeast, salt & pepper.
And a square of Trader Joe’s dark chocolate truffle for dessert. Yum.
