Breakfast

Last Wednesday I posted 3 times throughout the day for What I Ate (That) Wednesday. It was fun and a bit challenging. I’ll admit to eating better that day then I do most days. :) I’ll be doing the same today with 2-3 posts. 

I of course tried to start my day off with my Cold Brew Coffee. Unfortunately I bought a new container of Almond Milk yesterday and found it open this morning. No one remembers opening it! I felt like I might have so I used it anyway in my Iced Coffee but the first small sip tasted so weird I had to dump the whole thing. So I’ll be off to Starbucks in a bit. I have a free drink waiting there for me on my gold card. 

We had a midweek treat for breakfast today. I picked us up some bagels at Fairway yesterday. My 3 family members ate theirs with EB and Nooch. I had mine with EB, Nooch, Upton’s Naturals Seitan Bacon and Sliced Tomato. It was delicious and I’m ready for the rest of the day now. 

Now I’m off to get that coffee! 

See you later this afternoon!

VeganMoFo: Sandwiches, Tomatoes and Bacon

Seitan Bacon BLT www.good-good-things.com

Seitan Bacon and Arugula BLT

I have 2 favorite summer sandwiches. A BLT and a Tomato and Mayo Sandwich. Especially when they are made with Heirloom Tomatoes that I grow in my own garden. Unfortunately this year all 4 of our tomato plants failed miserably. In fact our whole garden failed miserably thanks to The Marx Brothers. 

Its’s also taken us all summer to get to our local Farmers Market held each Saturday. When we finally did go I picked up the most beautiful tomatoes. They were so delicious. You can taste the sunshine that helped grown them. So perfect. After buying these tomatoes I promptly made my us some BLT’s subbing Seitan Bacon for the “B” and Arugula for the “L’. We usually enjoy my own Coconut Bacon on our BLT’s but this time the Seitan Bacon is from the Upton’s Naturals brand and the mayo I use is by Just Mayo. My love for Just Mayo might just be a whole other post.

Tomato and Just Mayo on Toast

I like my bread slightly toasted, I like my mayo to be on the bit of way too much mayo and my tomatoes need to be perfect. Plus lots of salt and fresh cracked pepper. I can easily eat 2-3 of these at a time, but I don’t, usually. We lucked out with some great store bought cherry tomatoes that I sliced in half for some Tomato and Mayo Sandwiches. Its one of the first times I’ve had store bought tomatoes be good enough for these sandwiches. 

We are hopeful that next year our garden will work out so we can eat these with tomatoes straight from out backyard.
