Great Way to Start The Day

Ever have those days you just wake up ravenous?! That's how this morning was for me, and quickly satisfied with the help of this yummy smoothie
1 c. plain soy milk
1 c. blueberry soy yogurt

1 c. frozen blueberries

2 tsp. agave nectar

and these awesome waffles.
I usually buy the flax seed variety but have been eyeing the hemp version for some time. These whole grain powerhousesdidn't disappoint toasted and topped with walnuts, fresh banana and some pure maple syrup.

Right now I'm blogging during half-time, allowing my tempeh to marinate for tonight and my first attempt at no knead bread to do whatever it does for 20 hours. During the game I'd used up whatever tempeh was left that wouldn't fit into the pan I'm using to marinade and made a little mock chicken salad with it.I just mashed up the poached tempeh with some Vegannaise, a drop or two each of tamari and veg. worst. sauce, salt, pepper, tarragon, slivered almonds, and raisins. Served on some black pepper and olive oil triscuits (these are sooooo good!) with a huge navel orange, this was a great lunch while cheering on my favorite college team.

Go Gators!

Wonderful post. I love starting my day with a smoothie and I have waffles in my freezer by that same company but I have never tried that variety before and definitely not with walnuts and bananas. Yummy! I am definitely making a note of this!

I love the look of that smoothie- and I'm also a fan of those hemp waffles. Your tempeh salad sounds intriguing- I love tempeh in any form.

I'm addicted to smoothies! I love adding in all kinds of fruits like blueberries too. It's a great way to begin the day, definitely!

I just discovered that brand of waffles too! I got some for Britty, and she really likes them! I haven't tried them yet since I'm always having a breakfast shake instead! :)

I love how you use tempeh! I wish I could just try yours, since I don't like the pre-packaged ones and I don't know how to make it from scratch. :( Do you have a favourite pre-packaged brand, or are yours always home made?
