I follow a lot of awesome food blogs, health/wellness blogs, and other web sites and enjoy when they do “What I Ate Wednesday” posts. So, here’s my first!
On Wednesday 9/14/11 I enjoyed…
Starbucks soy pumpkin spice latte + “Two Moms in the Raw” blueberry granola bar (not pictured because I forgot!).
Lunch was cold soba noodles that I cooked last night and let marinate in the fridge all night and all morning in tamari soy sauce, minced garlic, and sesame oil. I topped it with some fresh basil.
Raw almonds for my afternoon snack, alongside a cup of coffee (not pictured because, again, I forgot!).
Creamy polenta with fresh basil (served with sautéed garlic spinach, not shown).
From-scratch vegan hot chocolate… check out this recipe I randomly thought of (because we are out of both dairy milk and non-dairy milk… whoops)!
Vegan Hot Chocolate
- 1-1/4 cups water
- 1/2 cup reduced fat coconut milk
- 1/4 cup raw or turbinado sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ounces semisweet chocolate (Ghirardelli semisweet bars are vegan)
Combine water, coconut milk, and vanilla in a small saucepan and heat on high until boiling. Add sugar and whisk until dissolved. Lower heat to medium-low and add chocolate, whisking until completely melted.
Pour in two mugs of your choosing, but beware: this stuff is molten hot and we needed to let ours cool for about 8 minutes before it was drinkable!
