Microwaving Amy

Everytime I go to the store, I stand in front of the Frozen Section looking at all of the goodies by Amy’s.  I finally decided to just go for it and have a frozen dinner.  After studying the vegan choices, I settled on…

Amy’s Indian Spinach Tofu Wrap.

Inside shot!  I was both surprised and pleased at the flavor of this wrap!  Since it was frozen, I wasn’t expecting much but it really tastes great and the spinach doesn’t have that canned spinach taste- if you know what I mean.  I LOVED it and now I know i’ll have a great option in the future!  (I still prefer cooking my food, not microwaving!!)

With the same spinach and peppers from last night, this meal came out to be 355 calories, 13 grams of protein, and 9 grams of fiber.

Sleeping the Day Away

So I had thought I had enough sleep last night to pull off a cycle class but I was wrong!!  I crawled in bed a little bit before dinner just to rest my eyes and the next thing I know, it’s 12:30 AM!  I woke up to a growling stomach so I asked my mom if I should eat…

Spinach and Bell Peppers

Ezekiel bread, smart deli ham, mustard, .25 tbs Woodstock dressing, spinach, and avocado.

341 calories, 24 grams protein, and 12 grams of fiber.

Before I fell asleep, I had an afternoon snack of Pumpkin Hummus, Carrots, and Trader Joe’s High Fiber O’s.

309 calories, 9 grams of protein, and 13 grams of fiber.

I’ve really messed myself up!!

Eggplant-Polenta Stack

For snack this afternoon, I had some Sour Dough with Natural Peanut Butter.

215 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 2 grams of fiber.

I wanted to create something unique for dinner so I decided on using two of my favorite ingredients: eggplant and polenta! 

Eggplant Stack with Polenta and Earth Fare Marinara on Top.

With a side of Baked Zucchini and Canned Cut Green Beans.

and Crispy Pan ‘Fried’ Tempeh.

After dinner, my stomach was a little upset so I had a handful or two of Trader Joe’s High Fiber O’s.  My pain medicine has really hurt my stomach all day, I am calling the Doctor tomorrow to get a new kind.

Including the O’s, Dinner was 517 calories, 23 grams of protein, and 23 grams of fiber!  It’s funny how my protein and fiber numbers match up a lot of the time!

This afternoon’s workout:

  • 50 minute spin class
  • Free Weights

The cycle class was really, really good!  I loved the instructor so much that I am going to make an effort to go to all of her classes even if she only teaches two a week.  She made the class fly by and I felt challenged the entire time!  After working out, I was on my way home and found out that people were looking at our house.  Since they were there I couldn’t cook!  Instead of cooking, I got Sushi from Kabuto’s and brought it home later.

Cucumber Roll

‘Ultimate’ Veggie Roll

All the sushi!

Edamame that I steamed at home.

I love sushi 🙂

Oh, have any of you made your own sushi?  I want to try and make a healthier version at home but I’m a little intimidated!

Late Night Blogging

Sorry tonight’s dinner post is SO late!  I got wrapped up in some things and lost track of time…  here is what I had to eat five hours ago!  Before I get to dinner, workout was a 45 minute cycle class.

Lemon Chickpea Lentil Soup from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan.  I left it thicker than the recipe called just so it could be a little heartier.  I also changed some ingredients around and used green lentils instead of red so the color came out a little odd.  The flavors were dead on though.

Veganomicon Black Bean Burger on a TJ Whole Wheat Bun with Spinach, Ketchup, and Mustard.

With carrots on the side, dinner was 478 calories, 27 grams of protein, and 20 grams of fiber.

While I was working away, I munched on whole grain Tostitos and my mom’s black bean and corn salsa.  I mindlessly ate and didn’t measure my food so I’m estimated an extra 250-300 calories of snacking there…  Sorry this post took so long to get up!

Tofu Veggie Burger and a Quick Trip

I’m making tonight’s post speedy so I can make it to Urgent Care before it closes tonight… My ankle has gotten worse and I can’t walk without being in pain 😦  I’m crossing my fingers that nothing is seriously wrong, I was just getting in a great workout groove!

Dinner tonight was a Tofu Veggie Burger with Summer Squash ‘fries’.

Wild Wood Tofu Veggie Burger.  This organic patty is made with tofu, kale, carrots, onions, and some spices!  It’s absolutely delicious and I am going to buy these from now on!  They are a tad bit on the pricey side so I will eat them in moderation.  Oh, something fun about this was that it was white on the inside and had a really chewy consistency… if you can’t tell, I’m an instant fan!

I had my Tofu Veggie Burger on a Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Bun with Avocado and Spinach.

On the side, I had baked squash dipped into ketchup!

Dinner was 306 calories, 18 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fiber!

I’ll update everyone tonight on how my trip went… I’m hoping i’ll bring you good news!!

EDIT:  Turns out I have Tendonitis.  I am not allowed to run for 2-3 weeks but I can swim, cycle, and do whatever doesn’t cause me pain.  I love running so this news is a little hard on me but I am thankful it isn’t too serious.  Thanks for all the sweet messages and I’ll see you guys for breakfast tomorrow morning!

Quick Mexican Dinner and A Crunchy Berry Crisp

Since we don’t have running water, I had to make a one pot dinner to cut down on cleaning!  It’s a hard task for me because I love to cook.  For dinner, I made a Mexican Inspired plate of Rice and Beans.

Canned Refried Beans.  I had to make these in the microwave… surprisingly they were not bad!

Fresh Guacamole.

Brown Rice with Bell Peppers and Mrs. Dash.

Dinner was 403 calories, 12 grams of protein, and 13 grams of fiber.

Since I’m low on calories today, I wanted to end the night with something warm.  So, I baked a Berry Crisp!

Using Trader Joe’s frozen berry blend of Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries.  The topping is made of Oats, cinnamon, stevia, and soy milk!

This really hit spot!  Including grapes and almonds that I munched on, this snack was 250 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 10 grams of fiber.
