Panera Bread

I  loooove Panera Bread!   I used to order the Mediterranean Veggie when I was a vegetarian all the time!  I wanted the sandwich so I ordered it without the feta cheese!  Before lunch, I went on a really easy, relaxing walk.

Instead of chips, I got an apple.

Mediterranean Veggie sandwich with cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, cilantro jalapeno hummus, peppadew peppers, and onions.  The bread contains honey but I found that out after I ate the sandwich :/  I should have checked before hand.

It also came with a little pickle!  I am not sure of the calories since the nutrition information online includes the feta cheese!  I’m guessing around 580 calories.

IT’S FRIDAY!!

I’m SO excited for the weekend!!  I don’t have any homework and for the first time in a couple weeks, I am going to sit down and watch A LOT of TV and make some vegan staples!  I’m sure that’s not too exciting but there are so many shows on my DVR that I haven’t watched and I have be dying to see them! 

My mid-morning snack was a small apple.

For lunch I did a simple Dijon Tofu Salad and a Bowl of Fruit.

Strawberries, Grapes, and Cantaloupe.

Salad with Spinach, Carrots, Red Peppers, Cucumbers, and Dijon Mustard Tofu.

All of this came out to 342 calories, 14 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fiber.

Burning Up!

Since it’s so nice out today, I ate lunch outside with my friends!  It actually got so warm that we went inside for the last five minutes of lunch!  Lunch is light today so I can have a big slice of sour dough bread this afternoon!

Cantaloupe and Grapes.

Wild Woods Tofu Burger on a bed of Spinach- I love this!  It tasted so good.. I wish it didn’t cost 2.99 for TWO patties!

‘The Fixings’  – Avocado slices, Cucumber Slices, and Ketchup.

Lunch was 277 calories, 14 grams of protein, and 9 grams of fiber.

I’m going outside and then enjoying a nice, BIG snack!!

Lazy Leftovers and A Tasty Afternoon Snack

As you guys are aware, I was up pretty late last night!  So, I threw together a simple lunch using some leftover soup.  Not the greatest lunch in the world but it worked for this weird occasion!

Carrots.

Cantaloupe, Kiwi, and Grapes.

And Leftover Chickpea-Lentil Soup.

Lunch was only 250 calories, 10 grams of protein, and 14 grams of fiber so i’m going to have a bigger snack!  I’m starving!

edit:  Snack Time!

For snack I had some grapes and warmed Sour Dough bread with Creamy Natural Peanut Butter!

243 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 7 grams of fiber!

Hot, Fresh Lunch!

It was so nice to leave school early!!  My Doctors appointment went great and my blood pressure is perfect… for some reason I always stress out about those silly numbers when I get them checked!  On the way home, I stopped by Trader Joe’s for some staples and a treat or two!

  • Whole Wheat Buns (threw these in the freezer, they thaw out SO well!)
  • Creamy Natural Peanut Butter
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate chips
  • Kiwis! 
  • High Fiber O’s
  • Dried Granny Smith Apples – I’m excited to toss these into salads!
  • WW Couscous
  • Tempeh

After shopping, I finally made it home and started putting together lunch!

On the side, a Spinach, Mango, and Almond Salad with 1 tbs Annie’s Goddess Dressing.

HOT SANDWICH!  Grilled Eggplant, Grilled Tofu with Dijon mustard, Spinach, and two slices of Sourdough bread!  I made this in my grill pan which I have neglected for so long!  Easy grilled veggies will be on the menu more often!

Lunch was 404 calories, 18 grams of protein, and 7 grams of fiber!

It’s Official…

… School is now a joke!

Twenty more school days and I am free!  I decided school was officially a joke when I got assigned a ‘kiddie book’ project.  That’s right, I have to create my own five page Children’s book and it is considered a ‘big grade’.  Ahh, the joys of being a senior! 

Now onto lunch!

Sliced Apples with Cinnamon.  I was starving this morning and had these for my snack at 10:20.  They almost held me off until lunch.

Salad with Spinach, Cucumbers, Carrots, Chickpeas, Sliced Tofu, Toasted Almonds, and 1 tbs Annie’s Woodstock dressing.  This dressing is becoming a quick favorite… almost as good as Goddess dressing! 

Lunch as 365 calories, 18 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fiber.

I’m off to go bake some bread with the starter Matt made for me, I hope it turns out well!

Peruvian Quinoa Salad

Sorry for the delayed post!  I slept in this morning so I didn’t have breakfast and lunch was really late.  For lunch, I used some Peruvian Quinoa.  I picked up about 1/2 cup from Earth Fare last night for 53 cents!  I’ve never had it before so I figured it would be fun to mess around with!

Peruvian Quinoa, chickpeas, bell peppers, lemon, and 1 tbs of goddess dressing.

362 calories, 13 grams of protein, and 10 grams of fiber.

Now excuse me while I go make cupcakes 😛
