Spicy vegetables recipes

Last day of the week! It’s been fun sharing all my meals with you for these 7 days. Tomorrow I’ll be posting a summary of my thoughts on this vegan blogathon, so keep your eye out for that.
I slept in yesterday morning, so I only ate a banana for breakfast before I went to dance class. I never like to eat too close to exercising, because it slows me down and tends to upset my stomach. I brought some coconut water and mixed nuts as a snack to have during my break between classes. They helped temporarily delay my hunger…but by the time I was done, I was starving for lunch!
I headed for One Lucky Duck, my favorite raw/vegan takeout in the city, and ordered the spicy thai lettuce wraps and a mallomar for dessert.  The lettuce wraps came with mango, pea shoots, carrot, cabbage, cashews, basil, mint, cilantro, and a tamarind sauce. They were delicious and fun to eat with my hands. The mallomar was a chocolate coated pecan cookie with vanilla cream, and let me tell you, it was heavenly! I washed it down with their free filtered spring water.
After running errands, I came home and snacked on some hummus, spinach-walnut pesto, and tomato bruschetta. I ordered it from Blossom the night before (see Day 6), but was too full to eat it after my big bowl of pasta. It was fresh and filling, but I honestly thought the hummus and pesto didn’t have enough flavor or spice. Maybe they both just needed salt? Either way, I ate it. Was just happy to have healthy food in my belly.
My favorite Thai food restaurant was closed for renovations, so my boyfriend and I tried Cafe Con Leche for dinner instead. I  ordered a Corona and a vegetable dish with a spicy red sauce, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, and onions. It came with a bunch of fried plantains on the side. Nice way to end off my week.
I’ll be back tomorrow for the summary of all 7 days! See also Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, and Day 6 of this blogathon.
