Busy day

What a busy day today is...luckily I'm off to a good start! I went for a nice 4 mile run, came home and packed my bags for the day, made my dinner for tonight and prepared myself an early lunch. Hopefully I made my lunch big enough to hold me until I can take a quick break for a snack... I filled it with plenty of protein, fiber and healthy fats which is usually the key to satiety!

I made myself a delicious tofurky sandwich on Ezekiel sprouted grain bread with my favorite additions; whole grain dijon mustard, a slice of vegan mozarella, some sliced avocado and baby spinach. Mmm... On the side I had some carrots as usual, and a good sized pear.

For a snack later on, I packed a cashew cookie larabar- one of my favorite flavors. These really hold me over, and they're so tasty!

For dinner I didn't have much in the house to choose from, so I decided just to bring an Amy's bowl with me for my entree with a couple sides.

Amy's meals are very convienent in a pinch- they're all vegetarian with many vegan options, healthy and yummy to boot! I love this one, it has brown rice with veggies (broccoli, carots, mushrooms) in a mushroom gravy with black eyed peas. Since this was a pretty small bowl I also packed some baby zucchini and the rest of the red grapes we had in the house.

After work I'm meeting up with my friend at the Podhead, so a scoop of gelato is likely, and once my other friend gets off work we're off to the movies! I think I might be going out to breakfast tomorrow morning as well, so I'll post that when I get home. I'm excited to start my weekend!!

Are the containers you used to pack your grapes and baby zucchini part of the "Fit and Fresh" lunch kit that also comes with a salad bowl and travel mug? Just curious cuz I recently purchased that at Bed Bath and Beyond and absolutely love it.

I love your blog, by the way. It's such a great resource for how to make healthy vegan choices while maintaining an active lifestyle

Yes, the container are Fit and Fresh, but I only have the big purple container with the ice pack and small containers, no salad bowl or mug. But I do love it!

And thanks for the compliment, I try for a nice balance =)
