French Toast Friday

27Jun09

Hello gorgeous people! It is Friday night and I am pooped. Completely wiped, huge shadows under my eyes, hair as drab and stringy as Britney Spears’ post-shave extensions. But I’m excited for what’s to come tomorrow and Sunday. Watch out.

The day started with a lovely run, followed by stretching and some planks. A shower and robing later, I made another raw breakfast. The only raw meal of the day. I swear. It’s not going to be my thing. However, I will take this bowl any day:

Pear Berry Butter Bowl

In the bowl: 1 chopped juicy pear, several candy-sweet strawberries, a handful of poppable bloobs and a drizzle of almond butter-almond milk-pumpkin pie spice sauce. Molto benne:

Beautiful

Beautiful

Work was insanely busy today. We have five billion things going on at once, and I can’t even begin to recall everything that was done today. Other than the eating, of course πŸ™‚ I had some snacklettes to get me through:

Ate the Bumble in the morning, green beans in the noon

After a brainstorming session for the September+October issue, we dined:

French Toast Friday, baby!

French Toast Friday, baby!

We had the amazing french toast from last week! This wasn’t my plate, but I had 1 and 1/2 pieces french toast, topped with luscious berries, a dusting of powdered sugar and cocoa-cinnamon mixture. Alongside, I had roasted kobocha. Insane:

There are no words

There are no words

I love eating french toast that I know doesn’t have cholesterol, ridiculous amounts of fat, egg (always has made me gaggy) or whole milk. I’m fine with knowing it just has loads of sugar and sugar and sugar and love.

I was at work until 6ish, fact-checking, researching, writing, everything! I snacked on an unpictured macaroon (so frickin’ good) and a few Dr. Krackers Cherry Semolina crackers. Clearly, raw has gone out the window.

After work I ventured a mile or so away to get some produce. My cupboard and fridge looked sad. On the walk there I chatted with MamaJ (which made me miss her more), and on the walk back I snacked on Veggie Pirate’s Booty. Have you ever had that? MamaJ, you’ll love it. Go find it!

I came home very ready for dinner:

Preggers salad with Hummus-covered pita

Preggers salad with Hummus-covered pita

In the salad: romaine, spinach, 1/2 roma tomato, cucumber, green beans, Preggers, pineapple salsa and balsamic vinaigrette. That’s a local brand of hummus on half a whole wheat pita. The hummus is a bit watery, but I kind of love that.

For dessert I had the most divine mango:

Succulent and sweet

Succulent and sweet

I’m so SnackFacey today and had more Pirate’s Booty after dinner. Then I wanted just a bite of a White Chocolate Macadamia Luna. Yeah, that’s going to be gone by the end of the night.

Okay pudding pops, I just thought I’d give you a day of normal eats before a weekend of debauchery. Holla Gay Pride weekend!!! And I cannot wait to wear my new freakum’ dress tomorrow! You best be ready for may-juh pictures! I hope you’ve all had magnificent weeks. Please have the times of your lives this weekend! LOVE YOU!

Ciao for now,

Kailey

QUESTION: What’s your favorite song to dance to while in your freakum’ dress?
Oh lordy, another tough question. Mrs. Officer, Lollipop, Diva (Beyonce), anything I can sing/rap/act/perform to. Preferably rap. Duh.

    • 14 snackface

      Mrs Myers – The Bumble bar really is delicious! It’s chock full of sesame seeds, coconut, almonds and this one had apricot, too! I actually received it in a gift basket from VegNews, but I’ve seen them at Whole Foods before. They may have them at TJ’s, but I’m not 100% sure!

    • 17 snackface

      april – Hey chicquita! That breakfast held me for almost three hours, which is pretty standard. The only difference is that when it’s just a fruit+nut butter breakfast, the hunger hits harder than it would if I had eaten oats or something. But I’m always ready with snacks in-hand!

  15. french toast looks soooooooooooooo good..looks like a fab day of eats! I couldn’t do totally raw either :}

    And i’m with you girl, gimmeee sugar sugar sugar (as in ANY vegan dessert….umm helllo vegan carrot cake) anyday….over those desserts filled with all the other crap (that can still be good …..but not always ma style) !!

  21. 24 Maya

    how long have you been a vegan for/ why did you decide to become vegan?
    i’m thinking of becoming one myself, and any advice would be helpful! (knowing that you’re with all the experts daily!)

      Maya – Oooh great questions! I decided to become vegan at the beginning of June. I’d always toyed with the idea, as I’ve never liked meat and had digestive issues with dairy. Then, when I moved out here to San Fran and started working with the lovely people of VegNews, I decided it was time! It’s a very accomodating city and I have all the help and support of my co-workers. Reading a ton for news stories and fact-checking and editing articles also made me realize the effects meat-eating has on the body and environment, so veganism fits my morals and beliefs. The only part that’s really changed in my diet is that I don’t buy yogurt anymore, and the little cheese I ate regularly (Laughing Cows) got the axe. I don’t miss these things at all! I also have to read labels more closely, but it makes me feel better knowing I’m not harming animals and not putting things into my body it doesn’t like. Sorry for the spastic, long-winded answer!

  22. delicious breakfast πŸ™‚ LOVE it!!! and that french toast looks DIVINE!!!!

    LOVE veggie pirates booty– soo yumz!!!!

    rest of my love– hope you can try to get some relaxation time in!!! you deserve it!!! xoxoxox j

  23. i meant “rest up” not “rest of” lol!

  24. I am eatttting frenchy toast right now.. mmm… mmm.. almond milk heaven.

  25. 29 Jess

    I really dig Pirate’s Booty too! One of my co-workers bought it on a whim and when he realized it was “healthy” he goes, “oh gross (after about 1 bite)-Give it to Jessica!” So funny. But Yummmmmy.
