I thought it would be a good idea to write about my days once in a while so you all could get to know me better. Good idea?
I woke up this morning and went for a run right away, only 4-ish miles though. I’ve been super tired on my runs lately! I don’t know why yet, but hopefully I’ll figure it out soon. It was still awesome though; the weather was perfect.
Post-run breakfast was an orange, half a banana, and coconut butter fudge (just coconut butter, cocoa powder, and a little agave – so good!).
I seriously can’t go a day without oatmeal, so that’s what I made for a small lunch before heading off to a family gathering to celebrate Easter. I made a serving of carrot cake oatmeal for the girl and I to split since we were going to be eating with my fam soon after. Seriously, best oatmeal ever!
1/2 banana + raisins + cinnamon + chia seeds + grated carrot + cocoa powder + walnuts + coconut butter + DCDpb
Hanging out with the fam was nice, but my grandparents weren’t too happy about my new-to-them nose piercing.. I’m probably working for my grandpa’s company for the summer, and I really hope I don’t have to take it out!
the nose ring looks totally professional enough to work in an office, right?
Seeing my brother was especially nice. I miss him now since we’re both away at college! All of my family parties are centered around food and no one else in my family is vegan, but they’re all very considerate about it. My grandma made me a wonderful salad and baked sweet potatoes.
Dinner was a bowl of raw zucchini, quinoa, raisins, balsamic vinegar, nutritional yeast, and hummus, also not pictured. I was too hungry when I got home to take pics of my food! Dinner was supposed to prepare me to write a paper for my philosophy class, but that obviously didn’t work too well… :p
Ooh, I made carrot cake cookies today too! I’m terrible at posting recipes though. I usually just toss stuff in a bowl and hope it works out, but it usually does. This was some combination of Earth Balance, maple syrup, spelt flour, cinnamon, grated carrot, ground flax seed + water, raisins, coconut, and walnuts. They were awesome, I was so excited! And it was good for me to have dessert to eat for when the rest of my family was eating a very non-vegan friendly red velvet cake.
Anyway, I should really get to work on this paper. Finals are this coming week, then I’m done with classes for the summer, yayy!
I hope you all had a lovely day!
