This morning I made a very indulgent breakfast cookie. I mixed 1/2 cup of oats with 1/2 mashed banana, 1 scoop of creamy peanut butter, 1 scoop hemp protein powder, and 1 scoop of cocoa powder.
I topped it with blueberries, and some greek yogurt when I got to work.

For lunch I ate a leftover crab cake over a salad with greens, red and green peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and avocado.

For dinner I made a recipe out of Eat, Drink, and be Vegan - Moroccan spiced phyllo rolls. They started with a big sheet of roasted summer squash, zucchini, yellow peppers, fennel, carrots, and dried apricots.

These were mixed with chickpeas and wrapped inside sheets of phyllo and baked until golden.

I served them with a balsamic maple sauce. Derek liked them - until I told him they were vegan and he claimed they were no good. But I think he really thought they were good - he ate 3 of them.

I'm completely my vegan dinner with a vegan chocolate peanut butter cookie.


  1. I don't know if you're going vegan or not, but if so, it completely contradicts Derek telling me that he thinks he's pulling you closer to a meat-eating diet now. "She's not reluctant anymore to eat something from my plate even though it's a dish cooked with meat."
    I was HOPING you'd pull him closer to your non-vegetarian vegetarian diet, not the other way around. Now I don't know who to believe.

  2. He definitely is more open to vegetarian meals than he used to be - I'm trying to ease him into vegan. But my last book (Animal, Vegetable, Miracle) really made me reconsider eating responsibly raised meat. I don't have a desire too - but I'm less opposed to it these days.
