It's Vegan! Part 2

This breakfast is an old favorite of mine that I haven't had in a while - puffed rice & pineapple. Usually, I eat this combo sans yogurt, with lots of pineapple juice and walnuts on top. Today I switched it up: I got my healthy fats this morning from the plain coconut milk yogurt (complete Turtle Mountain review coming soon!) that I used. YUM!

Lunch was a simple salad of romaine + strawberries, with some Mareblu Naturals nuts (again, review coming soon!) as well as a clementine.
I had a special treat with dinner: a soda! I rarely drink pop, but I was craving it. I had a Fitz's Cream soda mixed with the juice of 2 meyer lemons & 1/2 of a lime. It really gave this drink an extra POW! Fitz's is semi-local (St. Louis, MO) and made without high fructose corn syrup or aspartame. My dad & sister are addicted :) Dinner was rice & beans with salsa, lettuce & carrots, and a corn muffin. Rice & beans is somewhat of a staple at my house - always filling, and always good.
I feel like I am constantly apologizing for my lack of blogging! I will get some automatic posts up soon. Softball tryouts were all this week, so I'll let you all know if I made the team as soon as the results are posted. Have a great night!

Rice & beans...yum!

Luckily legumes are dirt cheap in Spain and ever since I've come here I've eating tons of lentils, chickpea, fava beans, kidney beans and black beans. :)

The Mediterranean diet used to contain lots of legumes but Spanish youth are going ultra unhealthy and refuse to eat beans because they might f*rt and eat burgers and drink beer. A pity when they have such a wonderful heritage of healthier eating.

People seem to be switching over to instant coffee from the real thing too. Reallly amazing (in a bad way)...

I am the same way when it comes to soda, don't drink it much, but when I do--I make sure it's a special one. I like your idea of adding a little lime juice, how cool!
