1. My dad’s dinner last night was entirely vegetable-based.
My mom sauteed a “kitchen sink” of vegetables for him, and he actually liked it!
If you know my dad, you know that pigs are flying somewhere.
2. Later that night, after tasting the Cauliflower Fried Rice that I prepared for my mom and myself, he proclaimed,
“Why did I just eat vegetables, when YOU GUYS are eating fried rice?”
He hardly believed me when I told him it actually wasn’t rice. It was like a scenario straight out of a Fiber One commercial. 😉
If that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is.
3. Apparently, an iPhone was all I needed to make myself stick to a running routine.
Those satisfying little check marks have gotten me through the first month of my 10K running program! I love the walk/run interval approach, and could see myself repeating some of these workouts, even after I’ve reached my goal.
It also helps that I only have to run 3 days a week– it’s not overwhelming!
4. I’m having way too much fun taste-testing all of these dark chocolates.
Oddly enough, the Divine brand has less sugar per serving than the Endangered Species bar–> even though it supposedly has a lower percentage of cocoa. Both were delicious, but I think I actually preferred the Divine bar when directly comparing the two. The bar is divided into smaller pieces, which I always appreciate, and the chocolate flavor was a bit richer.
Of course, I had no problem eventually finishing the Endangered Species chocolate, too.
5. Flax eggs make AMAZING grain-free cookies.
I made a sample batch of vegan Grain-Free Cinnamon Raisin Cookies for my family’s big Sunday night dinner, and they were a huge hit! You couldn’t even tell that I had subbed-out the eggs–> the taste and texture were still perfect.
Now we can eat our cookies, and have them properly combined, too!
