Vegan MoFo Day 25 - Red Red Rubies

So it's What I Ate Wednesday. Or technically Tuesday because it's what I ate yesterday.  Honestly I should probably do these at the weekend really when I eat more interesting stuff because weekdays are usually pretty samey.

Let's start when I get up at the buttcrack of dawn (ok, 6.15 am, ish) to make my food for the day and go to the gym.  I mix 2 tsps. of instant espresso powder with a little hot water to dissolve it then make it up to 500ml with cold. Then add a scoop of chocolate protein powder and shake that bad boy.  This gives me some caffeine to wake up with and some protein to get me through my workout.  Also, I'm generally not ready for solid food at that time of the morning and I can drink this on the way to the gym.
I use this one at the moment, it's Holland & Barrett's own chocolate soy protein.

Breakfast when I get to work - porridge. If I remember, at night I mix together the oats and soymilk and leave it in the fridge overnight. That way it just needs to be nuked for 2 minutes in the microwave, in the morning, some additions added and it's done.  I put in 2 tbsp. powdered peanut butter that I  mixed with water and a tbsp. or so of agave nectar.

I had a yoghurt at about 11.

Lunch and it's cold enough for soup again.  I didn't have time to make a pot of homemade this week so I had a tin. For tinned soup this ones actually pretty good! I had a couple of slices of bread too as it's basically just broth with some wantons in, so I'd be hungry after 5 minutes!

Snacks during the afternoon were a pack of snack-a-jacks and a pink lady apple.

Dinner was AFR's brussel sprout & potato hash, which is pretty rad.  I had it with steamed broccoli & green beans sprinkled with nooch and some sticky tempeh (basically just marinated in veggie stock, balsamic, soy, agave and a bit of thyme, then fried in a bit of cooking spray then throw in the marinade and reduce it till it's thick and coats the tempeh - this is my go-to tempeh recipe when I'm in a hurry and it rocks!)

Tempeh close up WAAAHHHHHHHH!  Saucy.


When I got home from salsa/kizomba class I was Hank Marvin' so I shcoffed the last pizza tofu fillet. yes.

I'm sure I don't normally eat this much processed food. Or maybe I do - eek!

Once again, today's post title has no relevance, just picking funny ones at this point!
Cockney translations of the day
Red Red Rubies = Boobies (heheheh)
Hank Marvin = Starvin


  1. Hehe, boobies! :D

    Dayum - that dinner! I would like to stick both of those tofu fillets in my belly. I miss tofu :(

    I envy your morning willpower. I cannot workout in the morning because of the grumpiness and grogginess won't let me.

  2. Og gosh, I want that tempeh!

    And I have porridge for brekky while at work, too!

  3. That tempeh looks super rad dude, make it for me sometime!


speak to me, yo!
