This is Polaners All Fruit Blueberry Jam. It is so good, I was actually looking for fig jam, and there was some, but it had sugar, and HFCS (High fructose corn syrup), and truthfully, that stuff kinda scares me lol. So since the Blueberry Jam is sweetened with only fruit juice, I got that (and it was on sale). I was really eager to try it, so when I got home I just tried some straight. It's awesome, and it really has little pieces of blueberries in it!
Next is Sunbutter What is sunbutter? Sunflower seed butter! I got a book from the Library called The Food Bible by Judith Wills (awesome book, it even has a full section of vegetarianism, and mentions veganism), and it talks about sunflower seeds/sunflower butter in the back of the book as being very good for you because of it's high vitamin E continent (27%), it also has high levels of copper & magnesium. And lucky for me I found it at Lowes! I checked their website, and I'm going to try and find the organic if I can, because that has even more vitamin E then the kind I got it (40%). It taste like a combo of Peanut butter, and cashew butter. Yum-O.
Now for the other food (besides jam):
For breakfast was a small Stonyfield Soy Yogurt (strawberry), 1 slice of Ener-g Tapocia Bread with 1/2 TBS of my new blueberry jam, and 1 large pink grapefruit dusted with stevia. Very yummy and the perfect mix of protein (yogurt), carbs (yogurt, bread, jam, grapefruit) and fat (bread, yogurt).
For a few days I've been thinking up a bean salad. I wanted something for when people go (Well where do you get your protein?) you can say: This! With 30g protein I think I did a good job. It also is lower in fat (10g) and very high in fiber (30g, more than 117% of your daily value)
It's made out of edamame, chickpeas, small red beans, grated carrots, scallions, sunflower seed butter, red pepper flakes, lime juice (I used a little orange juice because I had no limes) and soy sauce. The grated carrot looks like noodles doesn't it? I need to keep adjusting it though, It needed a little less soy sauce, and something was missing...I'll keep working on it!
Oh and look at this gorgeous plate I got! We walked next door to the dollar store (A little ways down from Lowes Foods) because mom needed some more reading glasses, and I always walk down the cooking-ware aisle, and I saw it! Only a dollar. You'll definitely be seeing it a lot (I ate my breakfast and lunch on it, see)
Sorry I can't get it to let me put the link for the Sunbutter. The website is Sunbutter.com
Oh and Lola still hasn't had her babies :( Though she looks like she's about to pop.
