I am a bit out of it today, I had a long dental appointment yesterday I’ve been putting off for awhile to finally get old work re-done and having an achy mouth and not being able to enjoy certain foods since has made me a little cranky. But that’s temporary and I’m thankful to finally get this over with and not need to face anything like this for a long time! I think that plus the triple-heat has been a little deflating this week, so it’s a good thing I’ve had leftovers to use up for simple meals. Like using leftover black beans and rice over greens and topped with fresh corn.
And leftover jicama salad from our Memorial Day gathering with vegan bacon bits and oil free balsamic dressing.
Before my dental appointment, I had to enjoy popcorn since it would be awhile before I could again! One of my favorite low calorie healthy hacks for air-popped popcorn is to spritz a blend of apple cider vinegar and tamari for a light “salt and vinegar” snack that’s oil free.
After the appointment I created a simple oil-free tofu stir fry seasoned to taste with more tamari, apple cider vinegar, and sriracha.
And had to share carrot and sweet pepper nibbles with my favorite lap buddy.
Aw, again I am so happy Friday is almost here and I hope it’s a great Friday for everyone!
