Happy Wednesday, already? I guess having a Monday that felt like a Sunday, means the week goes by quicker. Fine by me! This week, instead of taking pictures of what I ate yesterday like I normally do, I decided to document all the delicious meals I ate on Labor Day.
Monday was also my first day back as just a vegetarian, and not a vegan. I’m proud to say I made it the entire seven days with no eggs/milk/cheese/ice cream. If I could do it, anyone can ;)

Monday I opened up my first can of pumpkin. I made myself wait until it was officially September to buy a can, and it was so worth the wait.

Salads like that I could eat every.single.day. And just to clarify, that bowl is actually a serving bowl, not a cereal bowl. Go big or go home ;) I was going to just have almond butter with my apple, but saw that can of pumpkin staring back at me from the fridge. Combining them both was a pretty good decision :)
After finding out I didn’t have to work my call-in (yay!), and finishing my homework, I headed to the kitchen to make a few things for dinner that night. First up: dessert. Emily invited us over to her and Jordan’s apartment for dinner, and I offered to make something to bring. After browsing Pinterest and some recipes I bookmarked, I ended up choosing Alyssa’s vegan golden oreo blondies.
And I licked that bowl clean since I didn’t have to worry about raw eggs (but let’s be honest, I still always lick the batter when I make non-vegan baked goods).
I also volunteered to make a salad, and chose Jessica’s triple berry kale salad. I only used strawberries and blueberries, and it was delicious. The avocado is what makes that salad in my opinion. So good :)
After arriving at Emily and Jordan’s, I stole some of Jordan’s chocolate-covered raisins. He just a little bit obsessed with them.
kale salad, sweet potato biscuit, corn-off-the cob
Since Emily was making steak for everyone else, I went back for
seconds thirds on the salad ;) But I still managed to save room for dessert.
blondie with vanilla bean frozen yogurt
Slightly under-baked = perfection. I suggest you try making those sometime. Vanilla ice cream or froyo optional ;)
Have a great Wednesday! Let’s hope the rest of the week goes as fast as it already has :)
Peace and Love,
