Happy Friday! (And MoFo Eve!!)

Hey everyone! Yay for Friday and the fact that tomorrow starts Vegan MoFo. It is my first time participating and I'm really excited about it. I'm trying to think of posts that will be different from my typical daily food log so if anyone has any posts that they would like to see please definitely feel free to comment. I already have a Halloween post cooking up by request of the lovely Sage. I would love some more suggestions too!

So I just got myself settled after the gym...had my protein shake but no dinner'll be boring so I'm just going to post now.  Here goes!

Breakfast was a honeycrisp apple and peanut butter.

I FINALLY made my pasta that I've been craving! I cooked up a half cup (dry) of brown rice pasta (GF) and mixed it with leftover roasted veggies and some yummy sauce.  It is actually a pizza sauce (:X) since I prefer savory sauces and I just happen to really like this one. The meal was delicious, I'm glad I finally made it! and it was super filling.

So as I mentioned no dinner yet, but it will inevitably be veggies and protein. Nothing exciting.

Last night was a family dinner and my brother was super awesome and not only brought me vegan treats for dessert, he found GF vegan treats for me! Check out what he found!

Peanut butter rice crispy treat with chocolate!

Some sort of chocolate chip cookie/blondie/bar thing.

I will have half of one of these for dessert. Haven't decided which one and I'll definitely let you know which one and how it was tomorrow.

Hope you all have a great Friday! I'll be back tomorrow for MoFo Day 1! See you then!


  1. Happy MoFo Eve! October is going to be fun :)

  2. Aah...its tempting me so much..:P
    lovely cliks.
    Looking forward for your MoFo treats...:)
    Tasty Appetite

  3. Maybe you could give a tour of yr Whole Foods? I'm always curious to see other versions of a chain...especially since you seem to find some great stuff at the salad bar.
    Or one of the Mexican/Chinese food places in yr hood. Sometimes those places intimidate me because I don't know what to order that won't be totally gloppy and greasy.
    Happy eve, and Shana Tova!

  4. Pasta looks great, and so do those desserts. I am excited to see what you and everyone post for MoFo! :) Since you're a fabulous baker, I'm expecting to see some of those delights featured!

    On a sad note, those weddings I participated in have zapped my funds for my trainer - so I'll have to live vicariously through your workouts!

    P.S. Thanks for the link to the blueberry smoothie!

  5. Hello chickadees!

    Nikki and Jay - Thanks can't wait to post for MoFo! Exciting month for sure!

    FF - Shana Tova! I'm not gonna lie, way awesome right there :) I LOVE these ideas, I'm always just so shy about taking photos when I go out which is why I rarely post pics of restaurant meals. Maybe I'll do a post of tips for healthy ordering in a restaurant. I'll try and take pics at Whole Foods too.

    Ingrid - Thanks! I definitely want to bake for MoFo, I'll just have to figure out a recipe I want to make. You definitely don't need a trainer, especially since you've been working with can just bring those workouts home with you :) I also plan on posting my home routines too! No prob for the link, I loved that smoothie let me know if you try it!

  6. The pasta totally looks like it would hit the spot! So do the GF desserts. I'm looking forward to your MoFo posts. I'm not doing it this year, just don't have the time, but I'll definitely be cheering from the sidelines!

  7. Thanks Rose! The pasta was delicious and I'm not even a pasta person. Very simple and tasty. I appreciate the support I'm really excited about MoFo :)

  8. Aw, thanks for the shout-out! I'm blushing. :)

    I must be living under a rock because I hadn't heard of Vegan MoFo. I'm looking forward to your posts. That pasta looks sooo good.

  9. oo oo ooooo so yumz and vegan!

    i keep seeing apples everywhere, i want to go apple picking NOWW. Honeycrisp in epic quantities would be good right about now..



  10. Sage - no prob! :) Thanks, the pasta was delicious! I'm excited about MoFo!

    Amy - Thanks! Apples are one of the best parts of fall! Honeycrisp are the BEST!

  11. There's a lot of delicious stuff going on with that Pasta bowl.
