My day in food so far…

Getting ready to make breakfast...

 Winter Cinnamon Smoothie:

1 banana

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!

 Finished product:

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 back to my pie...

 Have a great Thursday, have you had your greens yet today?



About Sarah Tombler

I live in Ottawa, Canada with my husband and our twins. I work for the Public Service, and I have been a vegetarian for 18 years. Over the years, I have started to understand that what we eat effects us, through mood, weight and positive thoughts. I am working towards cutting most animal products from my diet, in an attempt to live a life of compassion, and to do what I can to help this small planet of ours. I also love letting people know that the secret to happiness may be as simple as what we put in our bodies. View all posts by Sarah Tombler
