Good afternoon! Who here loves minimum days? I know I do =) I was finished with stapling homework packets by 1:30 and was free to go! I'm usually starving when I get home from being at work, shopping, out and about, basically anywhere. I'm not big on fast food, eating out, or eating a lot when I'm on my feet and having to bend over, etc etc etc. Anyway, I was hungry when I got home. I had 2 packs of tofu in my fridge, 3 spears of romaine lettuce, Steamfresh brown rice, and a can of vegetarian refried beans. Hmmm, sounds like a taco salad in the making, right? Ohhhh yes, and it was so good.
Are you like me when it comes to making salads? Basically, I love getting them at restaurants but hate making them at home. If I do make them, it has to be something special. I don't feel like wasting my time chopping lettuce just to have a lettuce salad with chopped nuts or hemp seeds sprinkled on top.
For the dressing I used Veganaise (vegan sour cream) and blended it with salsa. It's really good! It adds a nice texture and flavor, but is still really light and healthy, unlike smothering your salad in buttermilk ranch dressing *shudder.*
If I was really cool (and had time/energy) I would make my own taco shell bowl, and put the rice & beans at the bottom, lettuce on top, then dressing, then tofu, then cheese. Lets be real here, I don't care all that much. Low carb is better anyway =P
I'm going to make myself a big, boiling hot, cup of coffee and try to warm up in my apartment! Have a great night!
