Good afternoon everyone :) I FINALLY have some food to show you again. I took a trip to Whole Foods this morning and got some stuff to be able to make some yummy meals to show off!
I started off my day with a soy latte. It is quite convenient that there is a Starbucks in the same shopping center as Whole Foods. Then I perused the store very leisurely and found lots of awesome stuff so I decided to take pics of my haul.
I only got a few things from the produce section. I got some massive carrots (mmm!!), avocados (on sale 2/$3) and some beautiful brussels sprouts!
Then I also got some raw pumpkin seeds (I'm planning on making sugar and spice roasted pumpkin seeds), Rosemary and garlic crackers, gf oats, 3 bars (Green Superfoods then two new bars to try), raw almonds and dried figs (to make Isobelle's Raw Fig Newtons!).
From the fridge and freezer I grabbed some new finds and some staples. I found the Amande yogurt everyone has been talking about and grabbed 4 (on sale 4/$3!) to try...2 strawberry, 1 peach, 1 cherry. I grabbed a new gluten free bread to try and decided to try coconut creamer instead of soy. I filled in on stuffed grape leaves and Earth Balance. The brown box is some garlicky kale that I decided to try from the prepared section. I've only ever tried raw kale and never really got used to it so I figured I'd try it cooked.
My first solid meal of the day was a strawberry Amande yogurt with some granola sprinkled on top of it. I clearly couldn't wait to try it! It has the best texture of any vegan yogurt I have tried and I love that it has fruit bits in it. By far my favorite so far.
My second meal is a slice of gf toast with 1/2 mashed avocado and a sliced apple. I LOVE this new gf bread I tried. The taste is amazing and it toasts up really nice. It has way better texture than the english muffins. I'm totally converted :) And look how beautiful the avocado is! Noms.
For my third meal I decided to make a bowl to bring to work. This one has brown rice, steamed broccoli and zucchini, the garlicky kale and some Chickpea Gravy from Appetite for Reduction. This is gonna be GOOD!
I suspect that the bowl is going to be filling so I decided to just bring veggies and hummus as my last meal of the day. As you can see I couldn't wait to roast up those brussels sprouts!
As you can see I've had a busy morning with shopping and cooking (roasted the sprouts and I made the gravy today) so I'm gonna rest until I have to leave for work. Have a great day everyone!
