My day in food so far…
Getting ready to make breakfast...
Winter Cinnamon Smoothie:
¼ cup apple sauce
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp peanut (or almond) butter
1 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 heaping tbsp hemp protein powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder (or chocolate chips might work if you have a high-speed blender)
1 tsp cinnamon
Top up with water for desired consistency
Blend, pour into mason jar, drink up!
I was out of greens, so I got creative with the cocoa and cinnamon!
- And then of course, I took it to work. Mostly because I like to weird out my co-workers.
Lunchtime worked out alright…
- I went to La Belle Verte at lunch! A vegan restaurant near my work (on Eddy St. in Gatineau, for those who live/work nearby!). This dish is called Le Grand Cru (The Big Raw), and it was DELICIOUS!
And then this happened…
I can't go to La Belle Verte without getting a raw dessert. This was cranberry and raspberry I think. I ate it instead of the white store-bought cake that was available for a staff birthday. It's all about choices! I think I chose well...now back to my pie...
Have a great Thursday, have you had your greens yet today?
