Wholesam meals of the week

I initially had this post titled “squash, avocado, salad, pancakes” but thought that might sound a little gross.

Would you try it? A squash, avocado, pancake salad? Winking smile

Annnnyways.

I snapped some photos of my meals and snacks to share on this little bloggie.  Lots of big veggie bowls, avocados, treats, and carbs.

Sprouted grain toast with smashed avocado and hot sauce

Have you tried this?  It’s so rich and creammmmmy….. and better than smearing toast with butter or mayo!

Protein pancakes with banana and peanut flour drizzle

Weekend staple

Cabbage & broccoli salad

If I’m too lazy to make a dressing, which is almost always, I’ll just  squeeze on some mustard, vinegar, and hot sauce.

VEGAN Meal at Sage in Culver City

I talked the fiancé into a meal out at a vegan restaurant.  We decided to split a pizza and a burger.  We chose a pizza with artichoke, eggplant, red pepper sauce, vegan cheese, and a buckwheat crust.  We also split a tempeh black bean burger topped with mango, avocado, and sautéed onions.  It came with a side of house made sweet potato chips.

Although our meal was good, I think we’d try something else on the menu next time.

I love trying vegan food, but it’s important to realize that a lot of it can be high in calories, sugar, or fat!  Normally, I stay away from the fake cheeses and meats for this reason.  Buuuuut it’s fun to try out different meals and combinations that you wouldn’t cook up at home.

When we go back, I’d love to try a bowl or breakfast.  Their drink menu looks great too Winking smile

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate bar

These are my favorite chocolate bars! 100 calories each and 70% cacao.

Tuna Salad Veggie Bowl

Easy peasy!  Drain 1 can tuna in water, mix with mustard, and top over steamed broccoli & cauliflower and chopped mixed veggies (found at Trader Joe’s).  Plus some hot sauce of course.

There were a few more un-pictured treats this week….including triple peanut butter ice cream, brown rice sushi rainbow rolls, and quinoa cranberry cookies.

I need to cool it on the hot sauce. Most of these pictured meals have it…yikes!!

What was your favorite meal this week?
