Food & Exercise Diaries

May 28-29 Food Diary

May 28th

A few weeks ago, I veganized turtle bars that were always a favorite with my friends. I made a batch on the 28th and ended up eating waayyy too many. (As per usual with me and “new” pastries–I eat less once they lose their newness/allure.) At least it was worth it, because my boyfriend and friends seemed to be happy to have them again, and one friend requested another batch! The recipe is on my recipe-only blog.

Sometimes the occasional pastry splurge is nice to get the cravings out of my system. 😉



  • Sweet potato fudge


  • Chick’n strips
  • Homemade turtle bars

Afternoon snack

  • Tea with soymilk


  • Burrito with pinto beans, rice, guacamole, veggies

May 29th

In the morning I made a double batch of carrot apple beet ginger juice to get some extra nutrients in my system after eating mostly flour, sugar, and vegan butter the day before. Carrot juice is so darn delicious!

I also lifted weights and got tons of protein throughout the day in the hopes of making up for my relative lack of protein on the 28th.

I was going to my boyfriend’s house at night and wanted to avoid our usual habit of eating at restaurants, so I brought my own cute little dinner to go: red curry with noodles. His family said it looked delicious and asked me where I got it, and they were all shocked when I said I made it myself. I tend to forget how unusual my cooking habit is until I’m confronted by people who are surprised by it…

I also had my last turtle bar and homemade thin mint (for the time being) while at his house–I think I’m off pastries for awhile now because I no longer feel like having them!

Dinner to go!
It looks much prettier on a plate than in the tupperware 🙂
