Whew! As you may have already read, my buns are burning... Today is Saturday and that means that the DH and I get out in the sunshine as much as possible. It is rather cold outside, around 50 and very breezy. But, we decided that we were going to ride our bikes to my husband's work which is about 12 or less miles away. It depends on which way you travel... The easiest method of travel is my highway however the law states that we are not allowed on highways in our city. So, we went a different route that my DH or I knew... We blew up our slightly tired bike tires, grabbed our backpack complete with a Garmin GPS system, and set off with gloves and high hopes for the ride. My husband forgot to update the Garmin though and the route that he chose had construction (ours shows construction however you have to update it.. oooh DH...) So, we ended up going another route, missing our road and then going a few extra miles out of our way. Thankfully we found the park near my husbands' work and we settled down for a little snack in the cold sunshine. (haha The trip was never destined for success, the DH forgot the bike lock to his bike so we couldn't lost the bikes to go inside the warm visitors center for our snack). One Vegan Chocolate Almond Muffin, One Vegan Blueberry Muffin and two mugs of hot green tea down we were ready for the return. Thankfully we did make it through to the DH office and back home. Only one more mishap on the way back which involved more construction blocking a road, climbing over a small hill, railroad tracks and into a graveyard while all carrying our bikes... Adventure!
Banana Elysian - perfect fat filled breakfast that holds well for hours! Half of an ugly fruit to go along with it. DH of course had a larger portion with some more extras for more calories.
One of the hardest things about going shopping is that when you come home, you want to eat everything because it is exciting! Yes, I'm a foodie and that will never change either it be at 100 pounds or 129 pounds. haha I love food and cooking that much! We made due with some lovely Vegan Sandwiches. Along with it we made the Challenges' Asian Guacamole and some homemade corn chips with no salt. Both we yummy!!! I think we also had some fruit but my mind is wondering and can't remember.. I don't think we took a photo... opps...
Whole Foods has some yummy vegan muffins available sometimes throughout the week. I have noticed though that the selection isn't the best but the ones there are usually rather good. I think this week they had one vegan cookie in the bakery selection but we wanted some yummy moist muffins for our bike trip. Somehow I didn't get a photo of both... if I find them I will post later. Both were amazing! They are around 300 calories I think but when you are biking for three hours, I don't think it really matters that much.
Spicy Thai Soup along with my selected choice of Thai style Coleslaw. We really liked the soup however again we would add more garlic and much more ginger to make it more Thai style. We make lots of Asian food so we are used to the flavors and I think this recipe is for people just starting to find out about different cultures. So, if you love Asian food already, go ahead and double the extra ingredients in both recipes. We added some more ethnic mushrooms to make the dish - but if you are making at home you can use whatever you have at home.
