Here are some of the things I've eaten recently:
These are smoothies with frozen blackberries, bananas, ground flaxseeds, water, and the green stuff, which is Purslane in English, Regilat in Hebrew. High in those Omega-3's!
(The kids did drink these but said to tell the blog readers that "we've had better").
This is The Breakfast Cookie from http://www.fitnessista.com/
I had to modify the recipe a bit based on ingredients available to us here in Israel. The original recipe can be found on her blog as linked above.
1/3 cup oats
1 T tahina or peanut butter
1/8 cup non-dairy milk (I used rice milk)
You just mix it all together at night. Then spread it into a plate and refridgerate overnight. In the morning it's a solid-ish cookie and perfect pre or post workout. (I had it before a Friday morning jog).
And then there's this...
This... is a cupcake.
But it's a vegan cupcake!
Vegans have to go to birthday parties too. It was my nephew's big boy 2nd birthday tonight so I brought the vegan cupcakes!
I can't put the recipe for these babies here because it's not mine, but rather from this cookbook:
Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.
Here's a hint though: That luscious chocolate buttercream? It's made with tofu and it's sooooo delicious!
