Another beautiful week, I love May and we have been enjoying awesome weather!  One month to go…Screen Shot 2015-05-09 at 2.04.55 PM

This week my goal was to make a recipe using Vega’s Mocha Sport Powder. I hadn’t tried their sport line before, and it’s tasty! My favorite is the Vega One powder because it’s loaded with goodness. My favorite smoothie this week was this cookie dough smoothie. Holy moly! It’s delicious and has kept me full until lunch! It’s kind of a shame that my pictures don’t look nearly as good as the ones on the original sites… this is topped with spirulina.

Mocha cashew creme with Vega Performance Protein

For this recipe, I took best of vegan‘s raw cookies and inserted the mocha creme in the middle. It was so good!
See below for the cookie recipe

1 pouch Vega Mocha powder (sport or one)
1/4 c cashews, soaked overnight, then drained
2 T powdered sugar (didn’t want to use this but needed to thicken it up)
1/3 c almond milk

Blend all ingredients above.
The creme is in the middle. It was delicious!

Cookies adapted from best of vegan:
1/3 c instant oats
3 T coconut butter
1/2 c almond butter
handful mini chocolate chips

Stir to combine then set in fridge –  I left them in overnight to harden up. Fill the middle with your creme.

Vega has free nutrition and training plans on their website from May 6 until mid June.  You can find 8-weeks of training guides, meal plans, recipes, playlists and nutrition info, all for free! Definitely worth checking out!

Now for the meal planning! This will be taking a hiatus, I’m sure, in a few weeks! We’re going for easy. I like staying outside all afternoon and coming in and throwing something together very quickly.  Not feeling the motivation this week! I’m using inspiration from Veggie Grill (a California Vegan chain) for my meals!

Sunday – Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mamas out there! I won’t be cooking on Sunday or many nights the rest of the week either!

Monday – Nachos with dairy free dip and rice with carrots

Tuesday- out with a friend, easy dinner for all! chicken nuggets, mac & cheeze + broccoli

Wednesday – T-ball. savory kale caesar salad (veggie grill) with burgers (Hilary’s are my fave right now)
Marinated kale, romaine hearts, chopped Tempeh bacon, chunky avocado, cucumber, croutons, veggie parmesan.

Thursday – Chicken and cream cheese roll ups (K requested this one!) with quinoa power salad! (veggie grill)
Quinoa with diced red onion, bell pepper, avocado, fresh fennel, cannellini beans, carrots, almonds, currants, mint, citrus vinaigrette, hemp seeds. Served on a bed of marinated kale and romaine

Friday – Mediterranean plate – grape leaves, olives, pita, hummus
Saturday -Burgers on the grill (maybe even a boca burger) with sweet potato fries!

Looking for a quick and easy mother’s Day Breakfast? These look awesome for Sunday!

Minimalist baker – Sticky Buns or Cinnamon Rolls!
I also made this yummy cake this week!

What’s on your menu? What do you make when you are feeling uninspired?
