|Thanks Jenn at Peas and Crayons!|
As with most days, I started out having a cup of hot tea. Today I had a special Therapeutic Organic Tea that was VERY THOUGHTFULLY given to me by a friend (thanks Kristina! wink wink)
For a quick breakfast, I crumbled up my version of Gluten Free and Vegan Cherry Vanilla Power Bars from Elana's Pantry.
They turned out just so-so, but I think that was probably due to the changes I made in the original recipe, but hey... gotta work with what you got!
As has been standard lately, there were a handful of almonds involved in my day, and also half of a grapefruit.
For lunch I had a salad of mixed greens, shredded carrot, cucumber, red onion, Holy Land brand falafel balls, and a whipped up recipe of white miso, tahini, and olive oil, topped with a little bit of humus.
I wasn't very impressed with the Holy Land falafel, but in their defense it was close to the expiration date when I ate them. Either way, they were pretty dried out. I think I'm going to have to make some fresh falafel soon!
When I got home from work, I made another Carrot Cake Smoothie.
Dinner was grilled chicken, marinated in a homemade tequila-lime sauce, with grilled asparagus. Can I just say that I LOVE asparagus season. We got some at the farmer's market last weekend. I just dont think I could ever get sick of it!
Had some of this after dinner, sitting on the back deck as the sun was setting. Great, great, grateful day!
Oh! And an update on our baby birds!
The window on our front door, where the bird's nest is, looks right into our living room. Its been fun to see the mama-bird sitting on the eggs, and then watching as the birds hatched, and now watching the mama-bird feed the babies. We got a glimpse of the dad-bird the other day and are pretty sure they're House Finches.
This is a picture I took from INSIDE my house, looking out through the glass door that the wreath is attached to. Aren't they cute?!
Hope you are all having a happy, grateful, Wednesday!
