Yesterday was one of those days where I alternated between being rushed and taking my time. For instance, I took some time in the morning to chop a million apples I got at the farmers’ market for my Easiest Slow-Cooker Applesauce:
I also took time to prepare a lovely salad for lunch. I had missed my Hugh Jass salad from the day before! This one had romaine, my creamy avocado dressing, dried cranberries, chopped bell pepper, chopped onion, avocado and edamame. I had an apple with some peanut butter for dessert.
By the time evening rolled around, I still had a lot to do including a conference call for a group project for one of my classes. Dinner then became rushed. I ended up heating up one of these brown rice tortillas:
I hardly ever buy flour products like tortillas anymore, but I picked these up at the health food store last week on a whim. The ingredient list isn’t too bad and they are gluten-free:
I then filled the tortilla with leftover water-sauteed collard greens, mushrooms, onion and bell pepper:
I added some Veganaise and leftover Tangy Cashew Sauce for more flavor. Not bad for a dinner made in a rush. Before racing to my conference call, I took some time to savor a bowl of my applesauce that had been simmering all day!
In the battle of slow food vs. fast food in my house yesterday, I’m not sure who won. Have a great Thursday!
