breakfast smoothie: wow this is brown. i have no idea what’s in this smoothie. i think there was some almond butter, some mango? blueberries? definitely some spinach. i was in a rush this morning and just threw stuff together.
lunch: a-maz-ing. “potsticker burgers” with asian slaw. i didn’t add egg or the red pepper flakes, and i left the cabbage out of the burgers themselves. i also cooked the burgers in a pan instead of grilling them this time (the first time i made these on the grill and they just fell apart. this batch seemed even softer and might have just sunk through the grate). seriously tasty. i ate it with some pre-cooked brown rice from trader joe’s because i forgot to make rice until the last minute. the rice wasn’t fantastic, but it was edible and filling.
snacks: cherries, crackers, hummus, agave ginger cashews
