Seize the Sunny Moment

It’s been raining the last few days in L.A. (with no signs of stopping) so when the skies got sunny this morning, I jumped out of bed and grabbed the opportunity for a walk.

Doesn’t it look like Julius is some holy beast? He’s glowing!

For breakfast, I broke into one of the new cereals that Attune Foods sent.

They’re very similar to the Original Uncle Sam, but sweetened, with a few additions

I had about 1/2 a cup of the Honey Almond with a handful of Marshmallow Oaties

Plus organic skim milk

Two hours later I was ready for lunch. Ding donged 2 sweet potatoes on high for about 3-4 minutes (turning once)

Smushed in a dollop of Better Than Cream Cheese

For the toppings, I started to microwave some frozen shitakes and broccoli. While those were working, I heated up some veggie bacon and scallions in a cast iron skillet…

…then added the broccoli/shrooms and seasoned with Garlic Gold Parm Nuggets, S + P.

Finally, a sprinkle of Gerb’s Toasted Garlic and Onion Pumpkin Seeds:

I’ve never had a vegan stuffed potato before and this was pretty yummy – took less than 10 minutes too.

It just got sunny out again! Maybe I need to take advantage with another walk….

    Julius really does look like he’s glowing! What a shiny, healthy coat. He must eat as well as his mom and dad, the lucky dog.

    Today is a sweet potato kind of day. Yours looks yummy!

    I love my iPhone app GPS – it cost (I think) $1.99 and then you pay a fee either 2.99 a month or 24.99 a year and it is awesome! It’s called MotionX
    I call her Eve!
