Nommy day!!

Started my day off with a 3.5 mile run.  It was hard to get back into the groove and so hot it took a toll on my breathing pattern.  It was rough but I got through it.  After that it was smooth sailing though! Let's check out the grub.

Breakfast: Decided to go for some mochi this morning! It was AMAZING...I topped it with chopped walnuts, raisins, shredded coconut and cinnamon then drizzled it with maple syrup.  It was heavenly and call me crazy but it reminded me of baklava...especially when I had a bite with only walnuts, syrup, flaky coconut and syrup. Amazing.

Farmer's market mini-haul: Finally had a chance to get to the farmer's market and grabbed a few items.  I got a pint of cherries, a few ears of corn, a big ol' bunch of kale and some gorgeous peaches.

Morning snack: One of the aforementioned yummy peaches.

Lunch: Finished off the rest of my stir-fry with added broccoli to bulk it up. It was just as good the third time around :)

Afternoon snack: Iced coffee

Dinner: Farmer's market salad.  Kale topped with some raw corn, green onion and red beans.  I cut the avocado when I ate it so it would stay it's lovely fresh shade until then.  It was good but no matter how many times i try I don't think I'm a raw kale girl so it looks like I'm either making kale chips or steaming/sauteeing the rest of it.  

Have a great night!


  1. I've never tried mochi! But that looks like a delicious and light breakfast.

  2. The day I run 3.5 miles is the day I eat Mochi with nuts, raisins, coconut and syrup for breakfast. Or shall I say, I'm probably just never eating Mochi.

    Another magnificent Avocado!

  3. FF - Mochi is really good, it crisps up on the outside and is chewy on the inside. Kinda bland on it's own but that is why you top it with yumminess!

    SV - Why's that? It's just made of brown rice. Super yummy. An the avocado was yummy :)

  4. I guess it seems like eating dessert. I see it in the ice cream section as well as the vegan foods section. I'll buy it and ponder it. I... I... I....

  5. Ah that is probably why! They make weird mochi ice cream too, I don't even know what it is! The mochi you eat for breakfast (or it can be made savory too) is in the refrigerated section...usually by the tofu/tempeh/seitan...it is just kind of a solid, thinish square and it puffs up and get yummy when you cook it!
