Its been humid and gloomy here today but no rain! I've been keeping myself busy with books, music, workouts, and reading the blogs of course =) What's your favorite thing to do on a gloomy day?
I actually can't remember when I had these meals so they're all out of order, oh well.
I wanted to try out the Dandies Vegan Marshmallows I got in the mail the other day and what better way then to add them to oatmeal? S'More Oatmeal that is. -1/2 cup oat bran + 1 1/2 cups water -2 large scoops Pbu -1 scoop Artisana Cacao Bliss -1 Vegan Marshmallow This combination was delightful! Everything was so creamy and sweet, I nearly licked the bowl! Dandies Vegan Marshmallows are AMAZING. They taste just like 'regular' marshmallows and would be great on oats, sandwiches, s'mores, or just eating plain! I had another one by itself and it was like a little pillow of love on my tongue ;)
Green Monster... -1 cup water -1/2 cup fresh strawberries -1 scoop Sun Warrior Vanilla Protein Powder - 3 huge handfuls baby spinach
...Along with some Almond Butter Toast. I tried out Justin's Maple Almond Butterthat I got samples of from my local Farmer's Market, and it was delicious! I didn't really get a strong maple flavor (like Might Maple PB) but it wasn't bad. I would buy this again, maybe even a jar of it next time, since I had to basically turn the squeeze packet inside out to get all the delicious stuff out!
I really liked this flavor dressing. It was definitely more sweet than tangy, with a pleasant hint of basil in every bite. I think its my favorite so far.
This was part of tonight's dinner. A Ballpark Italian Sausages from HH's e-book Backyard Vegan. These were super-simple to make and very tasty! I liked the fennel and italian spices, which made it taste very identical to a sausage. Another winner from HH...can she do no wrong?!
With the hotdog, I made Coconut Basmati Rice and steamed Zucchini. For the Coconut Rice I just combined 1 cup brown basmati rice with 1 can lite coconut milk and 1/2 cup water in my rice cooker. After it did it's thing, I had fluffy, sweet rice that cooled my mouth after that spicy sausage. Yummy.
I'm a Celebrity is on tonight! Woo! I'm so addicted to this show...and not afraid to admit it! haha
Then I think I'll watch Waking Up in Vegas, I hope its funny. Have a great evening loves
