Today is busy! And all I’ve been doing (besides work) was thinking of what I could have for lunch.
While it may not win most creative or most beautiful, it was delicious!
I was working with what I had, so here it is!
I had some local acorn squash that I got at the market a few weeks ago, so I cut one in half and roasted it at 450 for about 40 minutes. When there were 15 minutes left, I added in some broccoli to roast along with it.
For the filling, I cooked up some whole wheat pasta (just flour + water!) and tossed it in some leftover pasta sauce I had (tomatoes and seasonings).
I love tomato sauces with squash – it’s such a great combination!
And, I had to have some sort of dessert ;)
I actually got this yesterday at lunch, but saved it for today!
My favorite local chocolate shop, The Chocolate Spike, has vegan treats! This is a Pomegranate Blueberry Vegan fudge. Yum.
As for my coffee…
The almond milk wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good in hot coffee. I’d like to try those coconut milk creamers, but I haven’t found them here yet.
Are you going vegan for today? If not, what do you think would be the biggest change for you or the hardest thing to “replace”? Or what was the hardest switch for you if you are vegan?
I think if I found those creamers, I could totally do without milk in my coffee. I just think I would miss eggs so much! For baking, I know there are substitutes…but if I just wanted eggs for breakfast…there’s not really anything to take their place.
