It's the little things that make me happy

Today I traded in my afternoon run with my co-worker for a trip to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. I am so excited to report that I found everything I need for the next Vegan Cupcake, but, couldn't find Chickpea Flour. It wasn't in the bagged flour or the bulk bins. I am going to make Chickpea Fries with Romesco Sauce someday (I have my recipes ready). I decided this is a must after having them at Ubuntu.

I pretty much cannot resist “building” a salad whenever we god. Just look at this beauty packed full of goodness and flavor:

03/11/09 WF Salad

In the mix, although some of it is buried:

Green onions
Garbanzo beans
Regular sliced mushrooms
1 Tbsp sunflower seeds
Egg – only ate the egg white for protein
3 pieces flavored tofu
Buckwheat Sesame noodle salad ~ a Tbsp
Marinated mushrooms
Roasted mushrooms
3 croutons
3 big butter beans
Cioppino Onions (so flavorful you don’t need dressing)
Grilled Veggies
Colorful Cauliflower

Look at the super cool purple and orange cauliflower. It doesn’t taste any different than the real deal though.

03/11/09 WF Salad Up Close

We had been talking about sushi all week including my sushi flop. We decided to take a peak to see if the Veggie Sushi rolls were worth it. Our first glance was eh, not really…..then, we came across this Vegetable Rainbow Roll. Hello, avocado!

03/11/09 WF Vegetable Rainbow Roll

We split the roll in half and I dipped mine in a combination of soy sauce and hot chili sauce. So Good! I am telling you this lunch completely and totally made my day. Although my lunch was huge, I feel good about it because it was veggie packed and good for me. It is the little things that make you smile! Yes, food makes me happy lol! I have to say though I am pretty full now and probably will be until dinner time.

For snack this morning I still had a funky tummy going on and didn’t think I could stomach an apple with almond butter. So I traded it in for a Kashi Strawberry Flax waffle with almond butter and some Good Earth Hot and Spicy Tea. It definitely hit the spot.

  1. Your WF salads always look so good! Yummmm...I can't wait to find out which cupcake you're making next!

  2. Kirwin ~ I LOVE my WF salads - it is such a treat and they have so much to choose from. By the time you take one scoop of this and that, it's huge. It is the only salad I think I make that almost always weighs 1 that is alot of veggies ha!

    Do you really want me to tell you the cupcake or do you want it to be a surprise?

  3. No, the cupcake can be a surprise...I'll wait...
