Happy [WIA] Wednesday all! Halfway to the weekend!
I started off yesterday with my new go-to breakfast – Kashi Go Lean, vanilla protein powder, half a banana, and almond milk. I think I might try chocolate protein tomorrow.
Around lunch time, the fiance’ came downtown to pick me up because our wedding bands came in! We went and tried them on, then each met with the sales associate seperately to tell him what we wanted engraved. Top secret!
On the way back to my office, we stopped at Franktuary, a hot dog shop located in the basement of one of the cathedrals in downtown Pittsburgh (cute name, right?). I had been there once before but never tried their veggie dog. They offer a regular frank, a veggie dog, and a locally grown/grass fed all beef dog. One you pick the frank you can add a bunch of toppings – I of course chose the Mexican veggie dog!
When I first became vegetarian I didn’t use many of the faux-meats, but learned to appreciate beans and soy products. The sodium in some of the substitutes turns me off – but this seemed to interesting not to try. It tasted so much like a normal hot dog that it almost freaked me out! The guacamole was definitely the key to the delicious flavor. Any fellow Pittsburghers been there before?
Speaking of Mexican, I did order the queso, and will definitely share my thoughts with you all!
Dessert (back at the office) was one of my chocolate chip cookie cake muffins. Mmm.
Not pictured: greek yogurt and blueberries before PT. I had a ton of protein yesterday!
I didn’t get home until after 7 and it was extremely hot and humid – which made me not want to eat a real dinner. I snacked on my mother’s 3 bean salad (though there were 4 types of beans in this batch) and made a quick smoothie (almond milk, vanilla, ice, stevia). After running some errands and stopping by the grocery store, I snacked on some cherries and nearly an entire bag of popcorn to end my evening.
Bad dietitian, right? It was low fat popcorn.
What are you thoughts on faux-meats?
