How to..eat vegan whilst at work

30 Apr

Hi guys!

Thanks so much for the comments about exercising in group or alone.. I love doing group classes because it helps you push harder but I like running alone so I can clear my head and don’t have to adapt to someone’s pace..

Seems like a lot of you followed the Royal wedding.. I was at work but I saw some pictures of her.. She looked sooo pretty!!

This morning I went to Bikram.. I was able to do my first camel pose!!! I was so excited that I almost fell out of the posture.. *woops*

It is sooo cool that every class, you become more flexible..Every class you can go more into a pose.. It’s quite motivating really :)

Also.. I went to get my car after Bikram ( Well not right after, I had to go home and shower first :p) Looks like faith has pulled a little prank on me.. Since recently I decided to not eat dairy /fish or meat any more.. My new license plate is…

 Oh common! :D Well, at least it’s easy to remember ;)

This is my new ride btw, small but so cute!

*Vroeeeeeeeeeeeeem**

******************************


Yesterday I went to a casting for a catwalk show and after I worked at a VIP event from 2pm-00am.. I had a feeling that they weren’t gonna serve us anything Vegan proof or fish for dinner so I brought my own stuff.

The first thing you’re gonna need is tupperware..Lots and lots of tupperware.. :D My dishwasher is full with the ones I used yesterday :)

Because my collegue/bestie Laura came to pick me up at 11am I packed 2 lunches for us.. Apple-cinnamon oatmeal for her and banana chocolate protein oat bran for me.. I personally think that oatmeal can be eaten cold as wel, I even kinda like it this way.. :) By the time Laura ate her apple-cinnamon oatmeal at 1pm, it was still hot :)

She told me it was very nice *yeeey I’m a good chef lolz*

Banana – pecan- chocolate protein oat bran


For dinner, I made myself a seitan sandwich.. I was planning to put tempeh in this one but reconsidered because my seitan was already opened.. Ofcourse I realized that after marinating and cooking a batch of tempeh at 11′o clock at night :p Well, at least i have some prepared tempeh in the freezer now :)

This sandwich consisted of 2 slices of pumpernickel bread, oak leaf salad, cucumber, seitan, salsa and avocado.. I was a little bit worried it wasn’t gonna be fresh by dinner time but it was fine :) Good thing I brought something because dinner was “Vol au vent with mashed potatoes” or ” ravioli bolognese”.. Too meaty for me :)

I also packed 2 apples and a Luna bar ( Iced oatmeal raisin) and ofcourse my bb and portfolio..

It kept me full for the entire day, so first takout vegan lunch succes! :)

And here’s some more food porn:

Lentils, grape tomatoes, yellow zuchini and organic white beans in tomato sauce..


Topped with some Seitan and hummus..

ENTER fusion cooking haha! This is a chocolate protein oat bran smoothie :) I just made a chocolate protein smoothie and added some oat bran for some more staying-power.. It was good :)

After Bikram this morning I craved something sweet and filling: pancakes made from protein power and oats!

  • 1/2 cup of oats (1/4 more if you want them very firm)
  • 1/4 cup of oat bran
  • scoop of protein powder ( I’m guessing around 1/8 of a cup)

Mix together with some water or soy milk and bake.. ( These pancakes are not sweet because I used neutral flavored protein powder, I just put some sucanat on top)


Questions

- Chocolate protein smoothie meets oat bran? Do or die? :p

- How do you pack you healthy lunch? Any nice tips you got for me? :)

    Your meals look delish! I need to buy more tupperware, I am always borrowing some from my neighbours:) My “trick” to pack something good to work is filling a glass jar with a soup or with an oatmeal (I love oatmeal no matter what time of day it is:) – so I am a glaa-jar girl:) And since it can be quite heavy, I am also doing soem strength training:))

    I love camel pose! It’s a great stress reliever!

    I always take dried fruit/bars/nuts with me. And bring simple things like salads, sandwiches. Meals are usually pretty boring for me when on the go!

    Your license plate made me giggle :)
