Then I remembered that I was munching on this bag of dried green mangoes as I cleaned the pantry at 11pm last night in a fit of Bikram energy. I may be vegan, but still a compulsive eater.
|So good! But you probably shouldn't eat this just before going to bed.|
Day 4 vegan challenge meals:
Beverage: 8am, chamomile tea (stomach much too upset for anything else)
Breakfast: 10am, red grapefruit. Probably not the best fruit to eat on an empty upset stomach, but that's what I had so I ate it.
Beverage: 11:30, coffee with almond milk of course. Just not loving my homemade coffee, but I hate to go to Starbucks and pay $2 everyday. Must find a better brew for home.
Lunch: 1:30, Rice bowl with bok choy, spicy tofu and eggplant. I had to know if it was the tofu that was upsetting my stomach. Verdict: I'm fine. It's not the tofu.
Snack: 3:00, Vegan Hot Cocoa. Vegan heaven in a cup, recipe below.
Dinner: Nothing. Working. A nap--cocoa does that to me. Yoga.
Post-yoga Snack: 10:30pm, Sunflower seeds.
VEGAN HOT COCOA
It was a surprisingly cool day. When Precious got home from school I asked him if he wanted hot chocolate and he said 'But it's not good for me'. I tell ya, I think my kids aren't listening, but they clearly are! When I said it was made with almond milk, he wanted to try. What boy can say no to a cup of hot cocoa when he comes home from school? He loved it! My vegan version is just as creamy and spicy as this Mayan hot chocolate or a drink from Soma.

Bring the soy milk, agave, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and whisk until frothy. Serve immediately.
Tomorrow, day 5. And then the weekend and a family dinner. THAT will be a challenge.
