Taxes are finally finished! Yay! It's a little bit of a hassle living in a state that charges for federal, state and city. So much paperwork to fill out and if you have your own business it can get very confusing! But, thank goodness I'm finished for this year!
Day in photos:
Brekkie: Date Millet with Corn. This I made in our Japanese Hello Kitty Rice maker. So easy and very filling! No processed foods and all organic! Yay! I paired it with Michigan Cherry Coffee and a Vegan Deva Multivitamin and Mineral (which I take every morning). Oh, and there was also half a grapefruit. (393 cals)
Snack: 1/4 cup of raw cashews. I have these amazing plastic containers that are 1/2 cup each. It's so nice and simple to just toss in some raw nuts or dried fruit into these containers without measuring cups.
Lunch: There was not much for leftovers that I was in the mood for today so I made some wild rice in the rice cooker. Then I sauteed some carrots, frozen corn from this summer, garlic and bok choy as a side dish. I added some Korean kimchi and it was an entire meal. Yum! (196 cals)
Snack: I was really thirsty so I had the Adina Holistics Vegan drink that I tried to drink yesterday. It was delicious! Refreshing but not too sugary. The entire bottle is 100cals! I had this in the afternoon before the end of work. Then, when we went shopping we took a long time so I was really thirst by the time we drove home. We snacked on Goji berry trail mix, whole foods deluxe trail mix, and 1 dark chocolate covered almond with cocoa powder from Whole Foods bins. When we got home I was dying to try out the freshly ground peanut butter we made at Whole Foods. It was the first time we tried it and it is delicious! It is just enough flavor to make a good snack but not too sugary like pre-packaged brands. I threw this on top of some freshly bought Cocopops.
Dinner: The husband requested to have Japanese curry so I had to make it for him even though I wasn't very excited about it. But, we have to please our partners, right? Okay, so maybe I like to spoil mine but still... he was happy to have spicy Japanese curry over brown rice. I threw in some thai baked tofu just for more protein. (137 cals)
Snack: We found Allegro tea at Whole Foods so I wanted to try it out. Then we also shared part of a blood orange and kiwi. I'm not impressed with the Allegro because it is slightly like a medicine taste but the husband didn't mind it - he thought it reminded him of a chai. Allegro is supposed to be all natural ingredients and no preservatives.
