AH! It’s Wednesday! It’s hard to believe, because this week feels like it’s dragged on. Luckily, I haven’t relied on coffee to get me through, just under-eye concealer!
As always, thanks to Jen for hosting this community of food lovers each Wednesday 🙂
I’m really into this Strawberry Banana Cashew smoothie lately:
almost 1.5 c. of almond milk
about 2 palm fulls of raw cashews
1 scoop of Vanilla Sun Warrior Protein
agave nectar to taste
So, I moved to the country side of Delaware in November and well, there aren’t very many coffee shops. Starbucks isn’t nearby. I’m still getting used to it and it’s been nearly 6 months. I was driving through the itty bitty town next door and found a coffee shop! The Young Bean Coffee Shop is adorable and quaint and absolutely lovely! I had a great Raspberry Coconut latte:
When in a pinch, I always rely on Trader Joe’s for some good frozen food finds. This Chana Masala is sooooooooooo good. There’s been a time or two that I’ve consumed two of these. It’s great with naan!
I got my act together to make some dinner and had some sweet potato tacos! Tortillas are always in stock in my home, I grew with my great grandmother keeping us stocked with her homemade tortillas. Have you ever met a tortilla snob? I am one.
I grilled some sweet potatoes, made some simple guacamole, added some Trader Joe’s Garlic Chipotle salsa, and a little hot sauce:
One of my favorite burrito combinations is sweet potatoes, black beans, spicy rice, guacamole, and salsa. Sweet potatoes are amazing with ‘Mexican’ or Tex-Mex food. It’s a great vegetarian meal and I use sweet potatoes more than tempeh in such meals.
Well, that’s all I ate. Cinco de Mayo wasn’t as festive because of the overcast weather and closet cleaning.
Did you eat anything good for Cinco de Mayo? Eat anything new or different lately?
