Happy Wednesday!

Breakfast today was a repeat but never the less stellar combination of Kashi Crunch, Kashi Cinnamon Autumn Wheat, Banana, Organic Milk.

Pre-Lunch Appetizer of organic baby carrots.

Lunch was reaallly good, like exceeded all expectations kinda good.  I tried my first Amy’s Organic Soup–the Low fat Vegan Split Pea Soup variety.  Amy’s got it going on! This soup was fantastic and I swear I could pass it off as homemade!

Served with something I’ve been dreaming of since last night’s dinner.  Ezekiel English Muffin topped with Naturally More and Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter.

I didn’t make it to the gym this morning…I blame a warm bed and no sun-light.

I ate well today.  Really well. 🙂 In fact I have a new “keeper” of a recipe.

For breakfast I started off the day with a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch mixed with Kashi Cinnamon Autumn Wheat, topped with sliced banana and organic milk.

Then for lunch I heated up an Amy’s Frozen Vegetarian Lasagna.  This is sooooo good. Especially served over a bed of spinach and topped with parm.

For dessert I had dates.  Seriously, so good, I checked the ingredients twice for sugar.  Surprisingly the only ingredient is organic dates. Wow!

Snack today was an organic chocolate chip granola bar and a clementine.

Dinner was the star of the day.  I made tacos for me and Matt.  Matt got the traditional meat-filled tacos, but I made myself something a bit special and a bit more healthy!

Enter……..Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos!!!!!

So lovely. 🙂

I nuked half an organic sweet potato for 5 minutes and then mashed it up with a fork.  To the potato I added a sprinkle of chili powder, a drizzle of organic honey, and 2 shakes of hot sauce.  I mixed this all up and used the sweet potato as the “meat” of my taco.

I then topped the potato with some mexican black beans (from a mix I got at Target by Archer Farms), chopped spinach, chopped tomato, chopped onion, organic shredded mozzarella, and Ortega.

Organic Spanish Rice and sour cream on the side.

I was worried as I bit into my taco that I would be missing the flavor of he spiced up ground beef, but truly this was so delicious I didn’t miss it at all.  The sweetness of the potato mixed so well with the beans and the toppings. I give this concoction an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up!

For dessert I had a bit of So Delicious Mint Marble topped with vegan carob chips.

Consumed while I sobbed my way through My Sister’s Keeper. Wow, was that a tear-jerker.  I read the book a while back, and truly that was better, but the movie did a really nice job telling the story (even with a different ending).
