Happy Wednesday! Today I’m posting Tuesday’s eats:
So, it was a little different. I didn’t get out for a run because I was taking care of my neighbor’s cats, and by the time I got back it was already sweltering. Instead, after eating breakfast I swam some laps in our pool. One of the perks of having a pool in the backyard 😉
So, breakfast was tofu scramble (are you getting tired of it yet? lol), but with a twist. I chopped up some vegan Italian “sausage” and threw it into the mix. That, combined with the tofu, made for a pretty protein-smacked breakfast. Not to mention the “sausage” added a little extra punch of flavor. It was yum.
For a snack, I had some donut peaches. A friend just gave us a basket of the little suckers, and I’ve been eating them like cray-zee. They are phenomenal. As I like to say, like nature’s candy. Peach juice dribbling down your chin is one of the best parts of summer, no? 🙂
Around lunchtime, I was too hot to eat any “actual” food, so I made myself a smoothie. I used a banana or two, added some mixed tropical fruit, and finished with a dollop of peanut butter. I also used coconut milk, which made it really thick and creamy. I enjoyed it poolside.
I’m a total fiend, so I snatched some more donut peaches mid-afternoon. They were literally at the peak of ripeness, so I just couldn’t resist.
Dinner was a veggie burger, but I wanted to do something a little different with it. Instead of the usual peppers and onions with ketchup, I decided to do it with some medium-spicy salsa. It was actually a pretty good combo. I had it alongside a baked sweet potato, which I topped with vegan butter, agave and cinnamon. Absolutely delicious and filling to boot 😀
