Chocolate and Algae and Thai, Oh My.

I was super excited for breakfast today. In fact, it was difficult for me to wait until this morning to break into the goodies to make breakfast because I was just that excited. I can't be the only one that happens to, right? Anyway, I picked up some spirulina and dark chocolate peanut butter and knew exactly what to make with them. I've only had spirulina once, in a fresh juice, so I was looking forward to trying it a new way. The peanut butter needs no explanation - hello, chocolate and nut butter.

Today's SIAB included: 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup soy milk & 1/2 cup water, a bunch of kale, 1/2 scoop hemp protein, 1 tbsp spirulina, 1 tbsp flax, 1 tbsp cocoa powder and a few 3-4 ice cubes. I topped it with 1/3 cup granola, flax, raspberries and the aforementioned peanut butter.

I didn't utter a word while eating. All I did was stuff my face full of chocolate and algae. The verdict? I love spirulina. It's incredibly healthy, mild tasting and turns thing a beautifully bright color.

Food porn.

Last night I dined at a popular Thai restaurant in Orlando called Sea Thai. I had heard excellent things about it and Thai is one of my favorite cuisines, so I was looking forward to trying to veganize something on the menu. Luckily, there were lots of options and the wait staff was accomodating.

To start, I had a papaya salad. It was crisp, sweet and tangy. There was a lot of dressing, which I usually don't like, but it was so light and vinegary and didn't weigh down the salad at all.

I had drunken noodles for my entree, with tofu. Luckily I asked the waitress if there was any fish or oyster sauce beforehand so that they could make it without (always ask this at Thai restaurants!). It was delicious! Hands down the best restaurant tofu I've had.

The thing I love most about this restaurant are the portions - they're made for one person, not four. I always hate being served a huge portion of food at restaurants, so it was nice to be served a normal amount and not leave feeling stuffed. The prices aren't bad either - the salad + entree came to under $15.

Now I'm off to relax, get some cardio in, and read Eat, Pray, Love which I bought last night!!
