Are my favorite :)
After waiting for my 11am class for 2 hours this morning, I find out it was cancelled. At first I was angry that I wasted so much time waiting for my next class but then I realized, hey! I don’t have english today! Good deal. And that’s when I went for my walk. It was such a beautiful day out, I’m glad I had the chance to enjoy the weather.
So as promised, my full adventure from yesterday. We went out for lunch at Pei Wei for the first time. I was really excited when I saw their menu because they had tons of vegan options. Basically, you can replace any meat dish with tofu or veggies. Awesome, right?! I was so excited I finally got to eat sweet and sour tofu… or so I thought. When I ordered the sweet and sour ‘fu I expected it to look like the sweet and sour chicken I guess. You know, breaded, flavorful, different… I was wrong. The sweet and sour tofu was like stir fry with sweet and sour sauce.
If I wanted stir fry I would have saved $7 and made it at home. I mean it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t what I was expecting. I wanted something nobody else has. The dish also had a very over-powering ginger taste that was not very pleasant and not to mention the brown rice was rather dry. I’m really glad that I also ordered the veggie springs rolls because at least those were somewhat good.
I think I would actually try this place again and order something completely different like pad-thai. They have a lot of good-looking choices on their menu so I hope to go back and find something spectacular.
Later we went to Whole Foods to do a little shopping. I picked up some new things to try like…
Ta-da! After hearing all the ranting and raving over coconut butter, I finally bought some. Now what? Make a smoothie, bake with it, use it as a dip? Who knows. I’ll probably go and stalk some of your blogs to figure out something I can make with it. :P
What a love most about Whole Food’s is their amazing salad bar, they have everything! I don’t even really like salad but their salad bar always looks amazing. Little did I know they also carry vegan caeser dressing!!! The dressing was really garlicy and creamy, I loved it. They made a good lunch for school today.
Kale, spinach, peas, red cabbage, quinoa, tofu, grape tomatoes, carrots, & almonds
After getting a few things at Whole Foods we went over to Trader Joe’s to do some more shopping. I found something I have never noticed before.
Lots of muffins! <3
These were delicious. I normally would eat a muffin as a snack but I ate this for breakfast with a piece of PB’d toast and it kept me full for a long time. I would have bought more than one package of muffins but they all expired within a few days (hey! that must mean they are made with real ingredients!) Next time I want to try the carrot muffins!
I think I’m going to hang out around the house for the rest of the day and enjoy my day off of work. Maybe I’ll read some other blogs and get motivated to cook something, you never know. I hope everyone has a marvelous monday!
PS, did you notice my new ABOUT ME page? About time, huh? :D
