I’m doing well, I think? Just very busy with school and life. Trying to get a lot of recreational reading done over the break and not really thinking about food too much. Maybe I’ll be back one day, who knows. I appreciate the message though :)
I thought this was really good
Trigger warnings for rape and bodily harm. Also, this has nothing to do with Miley Cyrus.
Homemade marinara sauce over rice noodles with almond/nutritional yeast parm to take to work tonight. The recipe is the same as this with a few variations. I added zucchini, and mushrooms as well as the carrots, omitting the “ground beef” and used fresh tomatoes, a little tomato paste and some veggie stock as the tomato base.
Lunch that I brought to school yesterday. Kiwis and grapes for my first snack, a kale caesar salad with homemade croutons for lunch and a cliff bar and a salad for my after noon snack.
I bought a bunch of local organic carrots this week and thought it was a shame to throw away the carrot tops. So I googled what to do with them and the idea of using them in a pesto came up. My ingredients were; the carrots tops, parsley, walnuts, garlic, olive oil, and s&p. It had a very mild flavour. I served it with roasted carrots, potatoes, mushrooms and rice noodles.
I’ve been looking for vegan grapefruit lip balm for ever and I finally found it today in my University’s book store of all places. It’s vegan, leaping bunny approved, organic and raw! How is lip balm made raw? I have no idea! But I’m so excited!
Spiced Chai truffle from Pure Lovin’ Chocolate. I picked this up at a local farmers market. Next time I’m going to try their salted chocolate caramels!
Lunch. Wax bean mac and cheese with creamed spinach on toast. The mac and cheese is just a simple mac and cheese sauce with vegan substitutions over steamed wax beans. The creamed spinach is just a simple creamed spinach recipe with vegan substitutions made.
