Hey plant lovers! It’s day 12 of the #plantPOWER challenge and it’s dinner time! Unlike my lunch, dinner is not a salad. I usually crave warm and cozy foods for dinner. Last night, I roasted some veggeis and tried a new-to-me-and-almost-allergy-free (you like that rhyme?) veggie burger by a newer brand on the market called Hilary’s Eat Well.
I picked up the veggie burgers at a local natural foods market near my condo and almost squealed when I saw the ingredient list included quinoa, sweet potaoto, coconut oil, and psyllium husk! This #plantPOWER foodie was totally onboard! I couldn’t wait to make one and share my thoughts with you. I’m happy to report that it was insanely delicious. I drizzled my curry hum-nooch sauce (1 Tbsp. hummus, 2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast, 2 Tbsp almond milk. 1 tsp. curry, 1 tsp. garlic powder) over it and served it with roated Brussels sprouts and sweet potato wedges. In a word, YUM.
If I’m craving something else warm and cozy, I might opt for my Warm ‘n Fuzzy Vegan Chili, Thai Chickpeas in a Peanut Sauce, or Baked Tofu & Sweet Potatoes ina a Curry Hum-Nooch Sauce. With greens of course!
Workout & Bod Pod Update
This morning, before work, I busted through ZWOW #19. I love this workout because I can easily adjust it to fit with my lower intensity workouts. I subbed the pistol squats for single-leg hops and finished in just over 20 minutes. ZWOWs always leave me feeling so energized!
FYI: The lower intensity stuff is going well! I am still doing one HIIT workout per week and toning with lighter weights or yoga on other days. Some days, it’s hard because I do miss doing HIIT three times a week and I do miss strength training with heavier weights, but I know this is the right thing for my body. Taking these steps is making me grow tremendously in my spiritual practice; I feel more connected to my spiritual self than ever. This journey with myself has been nothing but a blessing!
