Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I have a busy day planned with a long run then a volunteer shift at an Earth Day event which should be fun! I am looking forward to fun social time with friends in the local vegan and vegetarian societies because I’ve been in a bit of a funk this week. Work was just crazy busy, if you’re in IT you know that things can be stressful when unplanned network changes and issues all hit at once. That was this week.
Friday morning we had a windy rain storm and Miko wanted nothing to do with it perfectly happy to hide under his blanket.
Smokey enjoyed crashing on her favorite blanket too.
This week involved a lot of simple eats like roasted spaghetti squash and salad.
And I’ve been obsessed with miso soup using Explore Asian Soybean Spaghetti lately.
So simple to throw together with whatever fresh veggies are on hand and ready in minutes in a wok!
I also used Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg to create a delicious brown rice veggie dish with spinach and carrots.
I made a huge salad with chopped apple and carrot miso dressing for a simple lunch.
And had the leftovers topped with black beans and nutritional yeast the next day.
Instead of going out Friday, we did a take out vegan pizza loaded with artichoke hearts, black olives, and colorful veggies.
I think this is my favorite type of vegan pizza, no fake vegan cheese or meat – just lots of fresh veggies with red pepper flakes.
Nice little kick with a bright ginger flavor – tasty!
And found great prices on Amy’s frozen vegan meals.
Great to have on hand in case it’s another crazy work week! Okay, the list!
