Today I woke up feeling great! All that vegan goodness from yesterday must’ve done me good. Either that or the fact that because I had no caffeine in my system that I fell asleep at 11pm. Hmm.
Anyways, today I started off with a Celery Apple Smoothie which was weirdly crunchy.
Clearly I did not take the above picture, but that’s what it looked like before I gulped it down while rushing out the door because I was running late AS USUAL. (May be a new goal forming here…we’ll see)
Morning snack was 1/2 an Avocado with lime & salt. MEXICO!
Lunch was a delicious and filling
The trail mix ( I used HEB’s Energy mix) really pumped the salad up and made it super filling and delicious.
Dinner! Dinner was an achievement today. I made Roasted Chickpea, Tomato & Zucchini Soup which was time consuming (have to soak the chickpeas for an hour and then roast for an hour), but the end result was delicious. Again it was a little crunchy for a soup as the chickpeas become like peanuts when you roast them. Maybe I was doing it wrong, but that’s how my soup turned out. It was good though because then I didn’t need any crackers or bread or anything with the soup as it was already crunchy and mouthfeely <–new word I like btw.
No dessert tonight as I ate waaay too much of that soup, but I did finish the day with a nice cup of lemon/ginger tea 🙂
Yay! Progress continues!
