More samples came, vegan wannabe

29 Jun

First of all thanks for those who encouraged me about my fitness level, really appreciate it. It’s good to have other’s point of view.
Anyway, this morning was Yoga X and though I wasn’t at my best, I still sweat A LOT, especially for the first 46 minutes.
After showered, refueled with this super thick oatmeal with homemade almond milk, topped with yogurt, pb and a banana.

pb and yogurt are somewhere in there...

Cut up fruits for my afternoon snacks

orange, peach and papaya. The papaya wasn't that ripe..ugh...not sweet at all..but I still finished them

I brought 2 slices of Rudi’s Organic Bakery Honey Sweet Whole Wheat Bread, and a cup of low fat plain yogurt for my second breakfast at work, but didn’t happen. Instead, I ate 1 slice for my late morning without any spread and it was good! Sometimes I enjoy eating a toast without any jam, butter or pb without toasting it. A good bread will taste good even by itself.

On the way home, I had to stop by Costco to get “girls needs” (hint for monthly stuff) and also picked up some other stuff: frozen edamame and strawberries. I start to get tired of only having orange and peach with unripe papaya. I need some more colorful fruits in my plate!

Got home and I got another surprise!

GNU foods flavor and fiber samples!

GNU foods is generous enough to let me sample their seven flavors (Thanks Robyn!) And to top it off, they sent me 2 bars of each flavor! I took a look at their nutritional info and these bars have 12 g fiber serving and only 130-140 calories! That’s so good and we all know we always need a lot of fibers in our diet, right? I can’t wait to sample these and review them!

Also I got a sample from Clif’s newest bar, Clif Crunch Granola Bar. This is one of the 4 flavors, Chocolate Chip. The other three flavors are: Honey Oat, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, and Peanut Butter.

I wish I can sample the other three but at least I can sample one of them right? Better than nothing.

Dinner was almost raw and vegan style, if I didn’t have 2 bowls of this veggie in chicken broth soup..haha.

Sorry to disappoint vegans/vegetarians, but I have no intention to limit my food choices. I feel I am fortunate enough that I don’t have any food allergies/intolerant like some people. However, that doesn’t mean I will indulge all kinds of meats here and there. I am still conscious enough to make healthy food choices.

So here’s my vegan food part:

nuked edamame with raw tomatoes and carrots

Dipped with hummus-nutritional yeast mixture. Yummy!

With Carrs Water Crackers..delish!

Tomorrow is already Wednesday and this weekend will be a long weekend. Got plans for it? We have NO plans, except we might get that couch or the bar stools that we saw last time. Also I might want to try making Averie’s “Spicy Doritos” Cheezy Dip this coming weekend now that I got my nutritional yeast.

    Vegan or not, so many people like oatmeal!! (with the exception of me. Ha ha) But you seem very health-conscous, so that’s good 🙂 Nice veggie soup there! Looks very yummy; totally would eat it if it’s vegan! XD

    OMG the clif granola bar is sooooooooooooooooooooo good!!!! It just came out, but I already went through 2 boxes of it, and I have two more to go!! The white macadamia tastes amazing!!! Try it out when you can!!

    And those bars…never seen them before…Costco? And those wheat crackers…are they from TJ’s? (because if they are, I’ve had them before!) The 99cents-ers! XD

    Have a good 4th of July weekend!

    hey you! korean chicken is this like chicken thigh i get at a korean supermarket- it’s marinated in this spicy ass marinade that’s red. i think it’s gochujang based. i’ll take a picture of it. crazy spicy.

    i LOVE massive amounts of fruit.

    and rock on. don’t limit yourself. it’s crazy when you limit yourself. you are you. don’t put a label on how you eat. and if you do, it’s YOUR way.

    crazy sample heaven here!
