I didn't set my alarm clock this weekend, so I ended up sleeping WAY later than I expected. I took it as a sign that I was more tired than I realized and I decided to skip the gym. Sleeping in was the perfect start to a relaxing weekend to recover from crazy work hours over the last week. I made a turnover-style treat and smoothies for my brunch. I started with a GoodBelly Big Shot. I saw some of these products reviewed on VeganCrunk (post here), so I bought the Big Shots when I saw them at the health food store. I don't really like the vanilla chamomile flavor, but they're small enough that I just chug it. You have to shake them really well to ensure that everything is in solution. I made cheater turnovers using crescent rolls, Galaxy soy cream cheese, and raspberry preserves (1 tsp/turnover). These were such a nice treat for brunch - totally not healthy, but very fun to make and eat. You can see I bit off the corner of two in the photo, because I wanted to make sure the dough was cooked all the way. I was concerned that the recommended cooking time might be short because of the filling, but they cooked perfectly at 375*C for 12 mins. I made smoothies using a cup of Almond Plus milk, two frozen bananas, and strawberry almond yogurt. I bought the strawberry flavors of Amande and Almond Dream yogurts, which are made from almond milk. I thought the texture of Amande was weird and the Almond Dream was too sweet. I had intended to just eat the yogurt, but I decided to make smoothies instead.
