Breakfast-less

I spy something wrong with this picture. Well technically theres nothing wrong with the picture or the salad+hummus combo.  Just the fact that this was the first meal of my day.

I had a late workout class this morning which didn’t end until 11:15am and my sister wanted to have lunch with me so I didn’t get to start my day with breakfast today. I wanted to eat before going to work out but I didn’t think my stomach would appreciate it, so today was a breakfast-less day.  Also known as a sad day. Oh well, I guess I can handle one day…

On a happier note, I spent last night baking up a batch of  vegan samoas (I subbed 1/2 of the unbleached flour with whole wheat pastry flour, used almond milk instead of soy, and decreased the brown sugar to 1 cup), which Jess so kindly recommended and oh.em.geee they are delicious!

So delicious, in fact, that I’m thinking of making a second batch this afternoon for myself, since I’ll be giving away my first batch to my friend who is visiting this weekend.  Basically, if you love coconut and chocolate, make this stat!

Anything fun planned for this weekend?  It is currently pouring outside (my current view-below), but I won’t let this rain ruin my weekend.

I’m really excited to go try a new restaurant (Bolsa) tonight which I’ve heard so many good things about!  And tomorrow night, I’ll be dining out with another friend who’s also in town this weekend. Then Sunday night I’ll be eating out once again to celebrate my sisters 18th birthday!  Lot’s of eating out for me this weekend.  I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.  I’m have a strange relationship with eating out.  Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. It has a lot to do with where I eat and what’s on the menu.  I’m not a picky eater, but I like fresh and unprocessed ingredients, which seems to be lacking in many places.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!  Hellooo weekend 🙂

  1. Wow vegan somoas! Those look great.

  2. yayy, glad you tried and loved the cookies! i love how easily they come together, even if they are on the lengthier side. so very worth it. i hope your friends enjoy them as much as mine!
    I have a love-hate with eating out, too. There’s not that many impressive places around here; so I’ll either be really thrilled that I can get like, a tofu wrap or something – but disappointed at the same time because I can’t help but think “I could do this better…” haha. I want to go somewhere that will knock my socks off 😉

      They did take a little longer than I thought (the chocolate part) but the extra time, like you said, was SO worth it! My friends LOVED them 🙂
      I’m right there with ya – sometimes cooking at home is just so much more fun!

    Those samoas look great! I feel your pain, because I can´t even imagine starting my day without breakfast – I would collapse in five minutes from leaving my door 🙂
