Hello, everyone. I'm really sorry I have not been and will not be posting regularly. Right now is a super stressful time of year, and I'm having some super duper messed up eating patterns. But don't worry; I'll be back to normal soon as will my blogging. In the mean time, check out tofufreakkitchen for some special baked treats.

Thanks, guys!

I am still here, promise! I must admit that blogging daily has been a bit of a struggle for me because.... well... i'm a bit lazy. sorry :( haha. i still love you guys! :)

Anyways, here is my "reThanksgiving Dinner" that I had last Monday!

Began with WW dinner rolls...
Crunchy Kale (!) :)...
and a Tofurky! I didn't find one at Thanksgiving last year, so I was particularly pleased to have found it :)
My brother carving the tofurky!!! ^_^
...and an apple gallette. Hooray!

So- today I had a wildwood tofu burger. These things are like super good! But they are a bit high-fat and oily-ish. (12 g) So if it bothers you, bake 'em and squeeze out the oil. Yurp.
And lookie what I got at TJ's! Psyllium! It pretty much tastes like nothing, but you'll want to drink it fast otherwise it turns into flax-egg like mixture.

Hooray! So in case y'all were wondering, the bomb threat was in fact just a threat, but please do pray for my fellow student who is going through a rather difficult time right now.

Thanks guys! :)

oh, in other news, check out tofufreak kitchen for some cakes!

School's the Bomb. Literally.

So today, I was totally going to stop being lazy and actually upload and post some happy, exciting eats (Re-Thanksgiving Dinner!!!) but then **cue the dramatic music** there was a bomb threat at school today, so I, being a good child, listened to the vice principal and didn't bring any of my stuff with me. Stupid me. But in my defense, he had said that it was only a drill, so you know what? It's not my fault. But I am super super super mad that I don't have my camera :(

The End.

**Please stay tuned for a happier, more food-filled message coming soon**

A Fruit-full day.

Snow day today! I love snowdays minus the fact that I'm stuck at home with a bunch of nummy foods. I tried (to no avail) to stay away from snacky foods. Oh well. I digress.

Breakfast: Miso again, but today's miso was a special miso paste from Japan. It had preserved lotus root in it and was sweeter than my usual white miso. Yeck to the sweetness factor.
Bar of the Day: 1/2 of a Clif Pear Apple Strudel Bar. Verdict? I like it, but it's a bit sweet as are all the clif bars (minus the nectar ones)

Sunkist Roasted Almonds. nuts are my downfall :(

Soy yogurt with Bear Naked Apple Cinnamon granola, Puffins, and Fiber One.

and then some nice hot tea :)
Grapefruit 1
Grapefruit 2
2 clementines
PB Banana. Salmonella outbreak? pshhh.
Yeah so I was doing pretty okay snackish wise. Until I had more almonds and Puffins in the afternoon. and then guiltless gourmet chips. eeeep.

Blah. Now I have a bunch of stuff to work on; namely my research paper for freshman comp on binge eating disorders. woohoo. See you all around!

Jungle Jim's!

Hey guys. So eating at campout was a half disaster. I brought two wraps, but only got to eat one since the bag of ice in my mini cooler melted an drowned the other one :( Good news though! I had my first raspberry dark chocolate clif nectar bar, and I must say it is SO GOOD. It's practically a chocolate bar. And I was still able to have my beloved miso soup! I brought a tupperware-ish soup container that had frozen edamame, dried wakame, and miso paste in it. By adding hot water (which, thank God, was readily available), I was able to have my miso! I also brought hummus and veggies and a chocolate chew Larabar. Sorry for no pics though; I was already self conscious enough eating my own packed food.

So anyways, after campout (which was pretty much a drag), I got to go to Jungle Jim's!!! I seriously was waiting all weekend just to go. It's an international market that pretty much sells everything (including the largest ever selection of veggie friendly foods!)

Check out all the stuff I got!! (I'm sort of a shopoholic when it comes to grocery shopping ^_^)
I got:
Barley flour, Spelt flour, Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, a Clif Dark Chocolate Walnut Bar, Clif Pear Apple and Pumpkin Pie bars, a Yotta bar (more in a bit!), a jar of Nacho Chreese Dip!!, SoyBoy Raviolis(!!!!), some instant vegan ramen-esque cups, a tofurky, a celebration roast!!!, Ezekiel English Muffins, Guiltless Gourmet Blue Corn Chips, Brown Rice Lasagna noodles, Cinnamon Puffins!! (i love those things), Kashi TLC Pumpkin Spice Bars, Wildwood Tofu Burgers, more than tofu Pesto Tofu, Field Roast Slices, a bag of Organic Sucanat, a bottle of Annie's Organic Ketchup, Raspberry vegan "jello", Black Beans, Garbanzo Beans, Garden Veggie Tempeh, Fakin' Bacon, and Vegan Cheese Slices.

Whew! That was a lot of stuff!! haha.

Then for dinner, we went to my friend's restaurant for Chinese New Year dinner! I had 2 kinds of braised tofu, bok choy, and garlicky green beans. Superyum!

And today, I had my essential miso-tofu-edamame-wakame soup!
MIDMORNING SNACK aka Bar of the Day: YOTTA Bar. I got this yesterday at Jungle Jim's and now, I wish I had gotten more!

Check out the nutrition stats. Pretty decent minus the fact that there are 11 g of sugar and only 2g each of protein and fiber. Oh well.
Tada! The color is a bit funky-- green tinted. haha. but that's only because of the ingredients which include: baby oats, brown rice syrup, apples, peas, asparagus, broccoli, sweet potatoes, celery, green peppers, rolled oats, crisped rice, cinnamon, and some other happy things.
And for lunch today I had the avocado wraps(without the sauce) that I got yesterday at Jungle Jim's. Aren't they pretty?
And it's nice that the ingredient list was short too.
Snack today--2 clementines,
some Fiber One+Soy yogurt,
and a bowl of Cinnamon Puffins (<3) !
And that's all for now. Got to do some schoolwork and then eat dinner and then watch my all-time, most favorite show ever-- 24!

See you all tommorow!

A Snackish Sort of Day

Today began with miso again! I really like having something warm/savory in the morning, and soup really fills me up. Hooray.

Today's midmorning snack/ Bar of the day was a clif nectar bar-- cinnamon apple. I still like apple pie larabars better, but it was alright.

Lunch was a tofu-hummus salad wrap (La Tortilla Factory High Fiber Wraps). Didn't have a chance to get a pic bc my camera died unfortunately. It was good though!

After school snack began with a grapefruit. I usually love grapefruit, but today's tasted a little too sour :/

2nd Snack item-- Soy yogurt+fiber one+cinnamon= yumm. and pretty filling. Hooray for fiber and protein! ha.

Sunkist roasted almonds! I really really really love almonds. If the fat and sodium levels were a bit lower, I think I'd live off of them :)

Apple with PB. I seriously love peanut butter. :)

Well, I'm off to eat dinner now and then youth group at church. Tomorrow, I'm going to be going to a 'campout' for our local Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, so I'll be playing violin until Sunday afternoon D: (horrors). See you all back here on maybe Sunday!

Oh yeah. I almost forgot:

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

My parents have been preparing a bunch of stuff, so hopeufully I'll have something interesting to post about.
