Roasted veggies (brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli), a fried egg, and a couple egg whites

Now onto the exciting news. First up, my granola protein cookies were approved and are now posted on Healthy Aperture! If you haven’t been on Healthy Aperture yet, go on…now. And be prepared to waste lots of time on bookmarking tons of recipes. It’s very necessary.

Second piece of exciting information….I got a job! It’s at a vegan restaurant and I am beyond stoked. My dream is to one day open my own healthy restaurant and this place is seriously like everything that I would want my restaurant to be. So since Monday, I have had training which has included learning the menu, practicing working on the cashier, and trying everything on the menu. It’s tough…real tough πŸ˜‰

Do you like beets?
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?
