I was feeling adventurous, and I decided to test out my new donut pan! I baked up a batch of Chia Donuts (recipe from the Oh She Glows Cookbook), and drizzled them with some chocolate icing. Icing aside, these donuts are actually really healthy, and full of Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fibre, and on top of all of that they're delicious too!
My mother in law makes a delicious orzo salad, and I decided to put my own little twist on the recipe! I cooked up some orzo, which takes no time at all, and chopped up some veggies - carrots, onion, cucumber, red bell pepper. I also added in some corn and garlic, mixed everything together, and then drizzled on some balsamic vinaigrette. If I do say so myself, this recipe was pretty delicious, and it tastes even better as leftovers the next day!
My husband and I wanted to treat ourselves to some vegan ice cream while it was still Summery out! We went to Strawberry Blonde Bakery, which is a vegan, gluten free, and nut free bakery in Westboro. I got their Vegan Ice Cream Sandwich, with chocolate-vanilla swirl in between two chocolate chip cookies. It's been at least a decade since I had an ice cream sandwich, but it definitely won't be that long until my next one!
My husband made chow mein for dinner, which was really yummy! He used egg-free chow mein noodles, onions, carrots, bean sprouts, red bell pepper, and Veggie Paradise Meatless Ginger Chili Infusion Strips. Yum!
