Seize the Sunny Moment

October 19, 2010

in vegan

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….

My friends dog has to ‘mark its territory’ every meter when we take it out for walks.

And sweet potatoes are the best :)

I’m a huge fan of stuffed sweet potatoes! I make them often with quinoa, salsa, and cheese!

I love those moments in the sun after it’s been raining for a few days. And Julius is definitely glowing!

hooray for clear skies! We’re having a rainy one here today – I’m hoping it clears up in time for house hunting this afternoon.

Those new cereals look great. I love Uncle Sam’s.

17 Susan Campisi October 20, 2010 at 11:06 am

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’m in Iowa, so I can’t believe I’ve been missing the rain in Los Angeles! I love rain.

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!
