I am in an incredibly good mood today! More on that in a bit!
I started the day off right with this
ugly swamp bowl of oatmeal!
Why the swampy color? Well I blended the liquid with spinach before cooking the oatmeal in it. Yum, even mom liked her bowl! And yes, that’s homemade peanut butter, blackberry preserves and frozen banana slices on top.
I didn’t have tahini, so I used a TBSP of peanut butter but other than that, I followed the recipe pretty close! It was soo good, I love this chickpea salad! I had leftovers for lunch today!
I also had some lonely cornmeal sitting in the pantry so last night I whipped up a half-batch of cornbread. As I was Googling recipes, I realized, much to my dismay, we were out of eggs! How could I make cornbread without eggs? Then I remembered that you can ALWAYS find a vegan recipe!
Saved by the vegans!
They were splendid! I found this egg-free recipe and made them into muffins, so amazing and tasty and soft. Even my pickiest brothers liked them!
Tomorrow I am going to Whole Foods for the first time! I am BEYOND excited! My mom is making me spend my own money so that I’m more careful about what I buy! I’m always more conscious about what I’m buying if it’s my own money.
This is my wishlist of things I want to get:
sunflower seed butter
brown rice tortillas
(I don’t think I’ll be able to afford even half!)
So yeah, I can’t wait and I’ll be sure to update y’all on all the goodies I get!
What’s your favorite item at Whole Foods or another health food store? Do tell!
