Summer is a few steps behind us now, and although I (sadly) may be spending a little less time drinking $3.00 beers on my favorite rooftop bar, I also have autumn to look forward to. With this new season, comes a new running schedule. I really enjoy running in cooler weather. During the summer I feel like I run for 10 seconds before giving up, so I think that my sneakers will be happy to finally get some air.
There are a group of food blogs that I regularly read, and many of them do more of a food journal thang. Essentially, they post every meal they eat. I would love to show you guys exactly what I’m eating, but to be honest, I think you might get a little bored. I eat a lot of the same things during the week. I’m trying to gain readers, not lose ’em!
I wanted to share a few of my recent favorites. I’ve been making some plate-licking (vegan!)meals recently.
Breakfast (weekend, obviously. Can you imagine if I made myself these on a Tuesday morning, packed them up and ate my pretty pancakes sitting in my little cube?): Blueberry Banana Pancakes
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 T vegetable oil
- flax egg (1 T ground flax + 3 T warm water)
- 2 T agave
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/4 cup water, or so… to desired consistency (I would have used almond or soy milk here, but I was out)
- pinch of salt
- dash of cinnamon
- peanut buttah and bananas for on top
Please forgive me if I forgot some vital ingredient and your pancakes fall flat. I promise I’ll write down what I threw in the bowl next time. Or feel feel to make additions/subtractions!
Organics! Arugula, broccoli slaw, pea shoots, Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger with roasted red pepper hummus. Dr. Praeger’s makes some really delicious products that I happily throw
in my tupperware on my greens.
Last night I made Mama Pea’s Chickpeas and Dumplings.
Oh mama. This was freaking scrumptious.
I know it doesn’t look very tasty, but I promise, you won’t be disappointed. It tasted like Thanksgiving. And that really means a lot coming from a person who has been panicking over what they going to eat on November 24th this year. It’s not the most vegetarian friendly menu. I used to (wah!) have a favorite Thankgiving sandwich from this little shop in D.C. which I used to dream about. I had dreams about a sandwich, people. Literally. If that doesn’t explain my Thanksgiving food devotion, I don’t know what does. Please head over to Mama Pea’s blog for the recipe and much more appealing photos of this deliciousness in a dumpling. DO IT.
Well, now that I have been thinking about that sandwich, I’m going to go dream peacefully. Later, dumplings!
