So sorry for yet another delayed post today; Friday nights are not always conducive to posting for a college student's schedule. I celebrated Halloween by going out to dinner with friends (Elmo's again!), making a Target run (where I happened to run into a certain someone), and checking out some the Devil's Eve festivities on campus. I buzzed around in the cold as a bumble bee this year, although I ultimately ended up having an hours-long conversation with one of my dear friends. Alas, I have no crazy Halloween partying to report, but I wouldn't have spent my evening any other way:)
This morning was my sorority's philanthropy event, a mocktail blend-off to support Make-A-Wish Foundation. I contributed my beloved Bullet for the contestants' use--it seems to be no worse for the wear. In retrospect, I probably should have participated myself, considering how much I love all things blended!
Here's what I've been chowing on for the past few days:
To be honest, I don't really remember what went into this smoothie. I think it was soymilk, berry hemp protein, blackberries, and banana.
Just hours after receiving them, I seized the opportunity to use some of those sandwich thins. I toasted the wheat variety and spread them with a combination of almond butter and agave nectar. On the side I had some grapes and cottage cheese.
Thursday afternoon was packed with things to do and people to see: advising appointment, marketing the blend-off, working out, plus my weekly RUF meeting. As a result, lunch was a tad pathetic: black eyed pea spread (with cumin and hot sauce), zucchini, carrots, crackers, and an apple with PB. Snore.
For dinner, I made another quick hash, using crumbled tofu, spinach, bell peppers, and soy sauce. I also made a quick serving of mashed potatoes (instant--don't judge!), salad with dried cherries, and cranberry sauce with walnuts. YUM.
Again, I am not quite sure what I put in this smoothie (where has my memory gone?!), but I think it was a combination of berry hemp protein, soymilk, blackberries, and strawberries.
I look forward to Fridays every week, because it means I actually have the time to make a real breakfast. This week, I decided on the Imus Ranch Tofu-Banana French Toast again. I am seriously considering just making a batch of the batter one of these days and eating it straight--it's that good. Anyway, I topped my slices with banana, walnuts, and agave nectar.
After my usual Whole Foods run, I returned home to make another repeat recipe: a Better Bunny Sandwich from the Rudi's Bakery website. Carrots, pineapple, raisins, vegan mayo, and cinnamon make for quite the tasty combination (especially atop a sandwich thin!). On the side I had a "creative" salad: Romaine, mushrooms, wheat germ, and a dressing made up of blackberry preserves and lemon juice. This made for quite the sweet meal.
As I mentioned above, we went to Elmo's Diner for dinner again last night. I ordered the same spinach salad as last time (no mess-up this time), plus a hummus appetizer as my main entree. The menu doesn't lie when it says "spicy!" I love me some pita bread.
My smoothie last night consisted of a frozen banana, acai hemp protein, blueberries, and soymilk.
That's all for now, but before I go, check out my bumble bee get-up:
Enjoy your Saturday!
