Happy What I Ate Wednesday! We are still suffering here in the Greater Toronto Area, with little to no sunshine and extremely cold weather. It's depressing, I admit, but I figure all you can do is treat yourself a little bit. Put the fireplace on, have a cup of tea, read a good book, listen to The Smiths (I like to wallow a bit in my misery) and eat some tasty food.
I definitely did that last bit yesterday. On What I Ate Wednesday, I generally show you my Tuesday day of eats, and I'm going to do that again today, even though it was a day of not particularly healthy eating. I started out well, with a banana-strawberry-orange juice smoothie for breakfast.
Then my husband mentioned all-you-can-eat sushi as a possibility for lunch. (It's exam week so he has a bit of time in between marking papers.) Um, yeah, we'll go for sushi. Without the kids too - bonus! We started off gently with miso soup.
We moved on to vegetarian fried rice and tempura veggies (broccoli - yum!).
Then, our favourite part - veggie green dragon rolls, crispy rolls and tempura veggie rolls.
As if that weren't enough, we added a few pieces of tofu sushi and sweet potato sushi. We stuffed our faces real good. Go big or go home, right?
Often I don't even eat dinner after an all-you-can-eat sushi lunch, but I got hungry around 6:30 and I popped a Tofurky vegan pizza with Daiya cheese in the oven. Just to look like I was making some attempt at being healthy, I paired the pizza with a baby cucumber.
Then I had a slice of Sweets From The Earth vegan blueberry cheesecake for dessert.
It wasn't a low-calorie day, that's for sure, but it sure did help with the winter blues. If you want some healthy options to better your mood, check out 8 Vegan Foods to Boost Your Energy in Winter.
How are you holding up this winter (or maybe you are like my Australian friend, suffering from extreme heat lately)?
