Angela's Vegan Lasagna


I am stressed and over worked today, but dinner was delicious.  In between construction document drawing yesterday, I managed to pull together some vegan lasagna.  This is a recipe from Oh She Glows that I have made many times, and it's always delicious.  Josh and I are both swamped at work and need to work at night this week, so I wanted something easy I could heat up for dinner.

I also made some Thanksgiving Stack Salads, but you'll have to wait for tomorrow for that recipe.



Since I'm having a problem working out, I am trying really hard this week to keep my nutrition on point.  This morning, I made juice with an apple, lemon, cucumber, spinach, green peppers and celery.  I love green juice in the morning.  I sipped on this a little bit at a time, and it lasted until about 10 am.


For lunch, I decided to go with the office.  We're all on deadline, and I thought a little socializing would do me some good.  It was actually nice to get out of the office and relax for a little bit, but most of the day was me constantly stressing out.



I had a grilled veggie wrap and broccoli at Bar Louie.  I had a clementine when I got back to the office, and at around 3, I snacked on some almonds.



By the time I got home, I was majorly stressed out.  I was in too much pain to go to yoga, and I just felt horrible.  My girl, Devon, has sent me a care package, and it made me feel wonderful and loved.  It was exactly what I needed.


She sent me lip gloss, a yoga magnet, some awesome pictures and a workout DVD.  You rock, Devon!  (I know you read.. hehe)


Dinner was lasagna, and it was so yummy.  I took a few shots yesterday while I was making it, and it turned out pretty good.  I love eggplant.











I'm staying positive this week, even if I don't feel good.  It's too easy for me to spiral into negative self thoughts and destructive eating, so I am going to focus on my diet.

  2. Sorry you don't feel good! I totally understand the pain of not being able to work out 'cause you're in pain. :-(

    Also, we have a Bar Louie in Memphis. I had no idea they had a vegan friendly menu item. I'll have to eat there one day.

    1. thanks! being injured sucks. how is your fracture doing?

      There aren't a ton of options at Bar Louie, but there are a few. Their grilled veggie wrap is really good. You have to ask for no cheso fresco and no mayo, but there is hummus, avocado and balsamic to make it amazing. I like their steamed broccoli. They have a hummus plate that you can take out the taziki and it's pretty good. We used to eat there a lot at lunch, but I got kind of bored having the wrap every time. They also have a portabello sandwich and you can add portabellos to their salads.
