What I Ate 9.16

Happy Tuesday!  I have the day off of work today, which is amazing.  I'm pretty much just relaxing and doing a little housework.  I also made a really yummy lunch that you guys will get to see tomorrow!

Yesterday was a more typical eating day for me.  Also, I had so much yummy food yesterday.  I feel super lucky!

8am: Breakfast was avocado toast with Sriracha, applesauce, and coffee with Silk creamer.  Avocado toast is one of my favorite breakfasts.  So easy, and super delicious. 

2pm: I was absolutely starving by the time I got home from work yesterday.  8-2 is a long time to go without eating anything.  Also, I'd been planning on making these lettuce wraps all day, so that wasn't helping!  These turned out so well, I was super excited.  They're just extra firm tofu marinate in orange sauce, then caramelized in the same sauce, and topped with a homemade spicy peanut sauce.  Soooo good.  I actually wrapped the third one in a whole wheat tortilla because I felt like I needed some bread. 

9:30pm:  So last week, before I had really committed to this vegan journey, I told my friend Nick that I would go check out this new pizza place that just opened down the street from Lazlo's, called Mellow Mushroom.  I had completely forgotten about it until he asked if we were still going.  I was kind of worried I was going to have to just get a salad, or cheat a little by getting regular crust (which might have eggs or butter) but I told him I'd go with him.  Well, turns out Mellow Mushroom is SUPER vegan friendly!  I was so impressed.  They have a special vegan crust, and they have Daiya vegan cheese, which I was really excited about.  They also have tofu and tempeh that you can get as toppings on your pizza if you want.  So cool!  Anyway, I got the vegan crust, tomato sauce, broccoli, spinach, basil, sundried tomatoes, and Daiya cheese.  It was amazing and I have lots of leftovers.

(If anyone is curious, Mellow Mushroom also has gluten free options!)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!  I'll have an outfit post up later this afternoon, so stay tuned!
