Raw

Crumbled Tempeh Salad

I might start eating breakfast at home more… those pancakes left a smile on my face all morning! To be honest, one of the main reasons I tend to wait until I get to work to eat breakfast is because I figure if I eat at home, I’ll get hungrier for lunch a lot sooner than 12. But I think I enjoy my breakfast and have more fun throwing it together when I make it before work. Today I had those pancakes around 8:15-8:30, and was pretty full until 11:30am or so. I had an apple for a snack around then, and it held me over until 12:30 for lunch, so it worked perfectly.

This was a fuji apple from the farmer’s market yesterday. What a huge difference in flavor this was from the apples I usually get at the grocery store! It was so sweet and crispy and just delicious. Even when I buy organic apples from the grocery store, they don’t come close to this taste. I’m so excited to have 3 more of these!

Lunch was pretty interesting. I threw it together last night before Bikram because I knew I’d be too tired to put it together after I got home. I didn’t know exactly what I was going to make, so I just started throwing some ingredients into the food processor. I added a handful of kale, baby carrots, and 1/2 cup of chickpeas. I pulsed it until it was ground up together, and then I added 1 oz of light feta and 1/2 serving of tempeh, crumbled up. I seasoned it with some salt and pepper, and then let it sit overnight.

I decided to name is Crumbled Tempeh Salad. Though quite random, it was delicious and completely raw. I ate it with some Wasa Crackers.

I just discovered these in my cabinet and had completely forgotten about them. I love wasa crackers because they’re so crunchy and light, and were perfect for scooping up this salad. I also had a Massaged Kale Salad on the side to use up the last of the kale from last week’s farmers market.

Unfortunately, this was a total fail. I must have majorly overdone it with the salt without realizing. I still ate the salad, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Sad.

After lunch I was craving something sweet, so I went to CVS and picked up some Gummy Bears. But unlike last time, I purchased a single serving bag of gummy bears, so didn’t feel guilty eating the whole thing. 🙂

They compeltely hit the spot without making me feel like I overdid it. I also grabbed a Venti Iced Green Tea from Starbucks.

Which I’m currently drinking as I finish up the last few hours of work for the week! <3 Fridays.
