Yummy Breakfast

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It’s a whole type of foods that people don’t normally have any other time and there’s so much to choose from.

poached eggs, yogurt and orange juice

This is a simple breakfast I made yesterday. It has poached eggs (which are my favorite) and I got them from my parents who have many very happy chickens, sliced homegrown tomato, vanilla soy yogurt with sliced banana and orange juice.

Bento 31- Pierogi Lunch

Because my bento yesterday was a little light, I was in the mood for something heavier, something more “homestyle”. When my Mom made steamed greens, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and gravy for dinner, it left me with great leftovers for my bento. I added the greens and corn to my bento, but instead of the mashed potatoes I made some potato pierogis that needed to be eaten and some gravy. Then for a sweet snack I put some soy yogurt and mixed nuts/dried fruit.

Now I can’t wait till lunch comes along so I can eat!

Bento #23 – Cute Snack Bento

Today I just needed a snack bento for lunch, so I decided it would be great time to use my cute cupcake themed bento box. Because I normally need to pack larger lunches, I have rarely used this small box.

I bought some canned mock abalone and felt it was finally time to try it out. I stir fried a few of them with some cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and green onion and added some spicy teriyaki sauce and they turned out really good. I’ll do a full review later, but here’s the bento.hellokitty
On the left there’s the stir fry and on the right there’s baby carrots, tomatoes, a small fig, soy yogurt, and a cute little hello kitty container with raw pumpkin seeds, almonds, and soy nuts.

Here’s the picture of the hello kitty container. Jason got 2 of them for me for my birthday and this was the first time I was able to use it. I think it’s so cute!

I also entered this bento in a competition, click here to check it out.

Silk Live! Soy Yogurt

I decided to start reviewing vegan products that I try on here along with the meals and bentos I prepare. For my first review I thought I’d start out with something I really love, Silk Live! soy yogurt. I happened upon this brand soy yogurt at Whole Foods a few months ago and have really enjoyed being able to eat yogurt again. They have many flavors in the small single serving containers, but this time I thought I’d get a larger container since I like it so much. It was the first time I’ve had vanilla flavor and it was just as good as the other fruit flavors.

My friend that’s a vegetarian says the soy yogurt isn’t as thick as it’s milk counterpart, but I think the overall flavor and healthiness overcomes that. If you add fresh or dried fruit and/or nuts you have a delicious and healthy snack.

Overall I give this product a 8 out of 10.
