Meatless Monday No. 2
Happy Meatless Monday one and all Also, Happy Halloween to all of you too Wow. Today is quite the popular day Did anyone go to work or school dressed up today?
Yesterday for BOOM day we were asked to dress up, but with the lack of interest I have in the so-called holiday, I really did not want to dress up. Several of my friends who would be attending BOOM day along with me felt the same way, so they weren’t dressing up either. However; sometimes I get creative very last minute and come up with the best costume of all…
A Lululemon employee sounded good to me? haha! What do you think!?
I was deemed as being “clever” by all who attended BOOM day Clever. I like that.
P.s. my hair is looking quite outrageous these days due to the fact that…
a) I need a haircut desperately and
b) this happened:
Yeah, the ceramic plate may have decided let go and scorch my poor forehead
It wasn’t as dramatic as it sounds, but I did leave the seen with a small burn mark… *cough* on my hand from picking up the extremely hot ceramic plate because I wasn’t thinking… *cough*
Today, I was woken up by the hunger monster, so I made these bad boys
Some pancakes smothered in the best combo of toppings, of course Chocolate protein greek yogurt whip and raspberries! I am sure Kate will agree We both love the chocolate – raspberry combo A definition of deliciousness right there.
Seriously, who needs syrup when you have fresh fruit to make your own!?
Love my fresh-fruit “syrups”!
So today is day number two of my new Meatless Monday tradition And I am super excited to share another meatless dish with all of you
This week, the recipe for Meatless Monday is a tofu wrap made with collard greens
Collard Green Tofu Wrap
1 large collard green leaf
2 oz. tofu (I used my amazing smoked tofu!)
This is a really versatile meal and super easy to pack and take along with you for some clean and healthy eats throughout the day
Begin by washing your collard leaf really well. Next, remove as much as the stem as you can. I took my knife and trimmed off the stem from the back of the leaf. Now the fun part! Stuff your wrap with your favourite veggies and tofu Make it even tastier by spreading some hummus, guacamole, peanut sauce, or your favourite dressing on the inside of the leaf!
Personally, I fancied up my wraps with smoked tofu, hummus, cucumber, red bell pepper, tomato, and lots of cucumber! They were incredibly tasty These wraps can also be made with chicken, tuna, shrimp, etc. if you don’t want to go meatless
The leaves of the collard green works amazing in replace of a regular flour wrap and holds up really well
You can definitely add some quinoa into the wrap for extra protein and some complex carbohydrates, too!
I love versatile recipes and meal ideas You can have so much fun with them
I hope you enjoyed my new meatless recipe and try it out for yourself I’m off to study now, though! Exam number 4 out of 6 is tomorrow and this girl’s gotta get her study on Nerd mode tonight for sure. I have pretty much been in nerd mode all day, though. What’s new?
I cannot wait for Saturday night. Midterms will be over!
What is your favourite topping for pancakes? Homemade fruit syrup
Straight, curly, or wavy? How does your mane flow? Mine has a funky kink, but I can deal with it
Favourite filling for wraps? I wish I had some sprouts for these I love the crunch sprouts add to wraps!
Have a good night friends! Chat with you all tomorrow
