yahoooo fridays here! All I can think about is my long weekend ahead and i’m so so excited!
Yesterday for dinner I went back home to Columbia. Gotta love mom’s cooking. She had a spread of things out on the table when I got home. Thin sliced chinese pork chops, white rice, chinese greens, oyster mushrooms, and tofu. yummm. This is pretty much what my entire Florida vacation food is going to be like, and i can’t WAIT :)
I’m going to be staying in Wesley Chapel which is really close to Florida. Anyone want to meet while i’m there? I”ll be there June 10-17. I think it’d be so fun to meet the Florida blogger ladies :)
I’m not sure why, but I feel kinda out of my element since Bikram the other day. I have been soooo thirsty, and have been drinking crazy amounts of water. I feel sluggish and exhausted and i’m assuming its from the crazy heat for an hour and a half. It was extra hot the last time I practiced so i’m assuming thats why. Usually I don’t feel this way afterwards. Hopefully I snap out of this too, I’m drinking like a camel.
Last night when I was in Columbia my dad offered me some of the fresh bagels he just got. I happily took a cinnamon raisin. I also took a little container home of cream cheese and dreamt of my breakfast in my sleep haha.
I’ve been on a no dairy kick for about 2 weeks now and it’s been going well. I’ve also been taking a new medication called align which is a probiotic that has really helped with my stomach issues. I couldn’t tell whether it was the dairy that was upsetting me, or if the probiotics were helping me so I did a dairy test today. Usually when I eat a bagel and CC i feel awful after. I’ll either eat the bagel plain or put pb on it. Today? I felt fine! I’m still going to keep mostly dairy free for another 2 weeks but it seemed like it agreed with my stomach so thats a good sign so today is my test day!
well anyways, back to the bagel. It was soo delicious and it kept me full for 4 hours. well done bagel.
Last night I also happened to pick up some CHIA SEEDS! i’d been seeing these everywhere and also have been getting them in my mix my granola and my way cereal, so I wanted to try to get some. I bought a bag and decided on a chia pudding. I made it last night and it couldn’t have been simpler. I got the recipe from the blog Swell Vegan and it was so goood! I halved the recipe and didn’t have a banana but followed the rest of the recipe to the T. I left it in the fridge overnight and this morning it was ooey gooey and puddinglike. It looked funny but tasted really good! This snack held me over really really well.
Lunch was kinda random. I had pressed 2 pieces of tofu, but then wasn’t sure what to do with them. I ended up cooking them on the stove and wondered how to eat them. I looked in the fridge and some some chickpeas, hm. I decided to sautee up some onions, throw in the chickpeas, and then throw two eggs in the mix. I had 1 whole wheat tortilla left, so I heated it up, added a little mozzerella *test day remember? :) * put the two pieces of tofu on top, then the egg/chickpea mixture, then threw some franks red hot. RANDOM but it was delicious!!! i am DEFINITELY making this again. I actually absolutely loved it. Nothing better than having a random concoction turn out really well. yumm.
Well guys, I’m going to try and post this weekend, but i’m not sure if i’ll be able to. Hopefully I can get to a comp :) If not though, have a WONDERFUL weekend and i’ll see you guys next week <3
