Happy Sunday! I’m having a quiet morning with two lazy chihuahuas in the office and trying to motivate myself for a run after a long week. Smokey has been having a lazy weekend claiming both fuzzy blankets on the couch.
And Miko would like more toy throwing time.
We stepped over to Grocery Outlet after the gym yesterday where I seriously scored on cheap ripe bananas! They even had a nice selection of organic bananas and large bags of them for $1 for quick sale.
I bought as much as I could fit into the freezer, so we’re stocked for smoothies for awhile!
Friday night we stepped out to a local sushi place that I love because even though they don’t have any vegan rolls on the menu, they are amazing at making unique, custom vegan roll on request that have been a different and fun adventure each time.
I really liked the tempura asparagus avocado roll topped with lemon – it was tangy, hearty, creamy, and delicious. Maybe if we keep requesting vegan rolls, they’ll finally put some of these amazing creations on the menu.
There has also been a lot of salad this week – always. This is an interesting blend of kale, broccoli, shredded veggies, and sweet peppers with hummus dressing.
And a huge, messy romaine salad with tahini apple cider vinegar dressing.
I’ve also been working through a bag of small potatoes this week and created a simple oil free potato tofu stir fry with tamari and sriracha.
And huge coconut curry potato stew I simmered in a wok with bok choy that was delicious and hearty.
Potatoes are so simple and fast simply chopped into chunks and simmered in a wok with water or veggie broth, the chunks cook in minutes for a fast and versatile one pot meal. Fast and easy is what I needed with a busy week. And this week’s list is a fun collection I threw together with what time I had for reading.
So much so that Baileys is even releasing a vegan beverage now!
And milk alternatives are here to stay. This article has an interesting point that milk is not beneficial for anyone over the age of 3 since we lose the enzyme to digest it and can’t absorb the calcium.
Fiona Oakes is a bad ass vegan ultra runner. I love her view on running and just going out and doing it instead of being stressed about it.
