Green smoothies are back! This smoothie had banana, spinach, frozen pineapple, maca powder and hemp seeds. Although I love fruit only smoothies, I do feel best when I add greens. I've been sticking to spinach because I read that certain vegetables raw are not good for hypothyroidism, and one of those vegetables is kale. It's such a bummer because I really love that kale salad I made awhile ago, and would love to eat it every day, but I have to have it sparingly. A vegan diet has never felt restrictive, but eating to heal/control hypothyroidism feels very restrictive. Especially since I don't even know if it's helping. Sorry for the little rant.
I was craving tofu all day yesterday, so I made some baked tofu and Jasmine rice. I also made a spicy peanut sauce with a little of this and a little of that. Also added to the bowl are cilantro and green onion, and of course sriracha. This really hit the spot. I always have to laugh when I get a craving for tofu, like could I be more vegan?
This is the world's worst picture, sorry. Caroline who blogs at Tea and Sympatico sent me a lovely package with some teas and chocolates from the UK! She remembered that I have fond memories of my grandparents always getting me a white chocolate Easter Bunny, so she included this vegan white chocolate bunny. I had it for dessert last night and it was incredible! It tastes just like I remember white chocolate tasting! I've only had vegan white chocolate one time so this was a real treat!
This was the other bar she sent. It's vegan milk chocolate and it was divine! I've mentioned a million times that as a vegan I've come to accept dark chocolate, but as a pregan you wouldn't catch me near the stuff. I was team milk chocolate all the way. This was sweet, and creamy and milky. Like a vegan Hershey's bar!!
Here's Afro deep asleep. If you look closely under her head you see a bit of blue. That's a little mouse. She was cuddling it like a teddy bear. So sweet!
