Fourth investment, days 1-2

This week is the final investment - and Friday will be the final, cumulative event. But leading up to it...

Day 1:

I'm a pretty simple person when it comes to breakfast. Here is the usual.

Lunch - corn and roasted pepper soup, a sandwich with edamame hummus and soy cheese.

Dinner - vegetable curry from Vegan and Tikka Masala! Yum!

Day 2:

Same old, same old.

Lunch - leftovers from last night's dinner.

Dinner - pasta with roasted tomatoes, potatoes, broccoli, white beans.

Third Investment, Days 3-7

My week spiraled out of control, with barely time to think, let along blog. So it became easier to group everything together for a big post here.

Day 3:

Skipped breakfast, lunch was a peanut butter sandwich that I forgot to document. Dinner was rice with spinach and red beans.

Day 4:

Again, no time for breakfast, lunch was leftover rice from Day 3, and dinner was a felafel from a Greek dinner on Kearney.

Day 5:

No breakfast, lunch was pretzels and hummus.

More leftover rice for dinner.

Day 6:

Breakfast was a meeting at the Hyatt Regency for SGC San Francisco, mostly fruit, and some pastries, no documentation. Lunch was leftover rice. Dinner was a salad from the Fremont Dinner with friends - barely any vegetarian options there, let along vegan.

Day 7:

Finally had time to eat breakfast! Just cereal and almond milk, but something!

Lunch was an eggplant and roasted pepper sandwich from Ferrari Foods on Piedmont.

Dinner was a hummus and tomato sandwich.

Phew! What a week!

Third Investment, Day 2

Barely time to eat today - only managed to get two meals in. Both leftovers.

Leftover pasta for lunch.

And leftover pasta - dressed up with spinach and peas - for dinner! I think what ends up getting me down on this project more than anything is the realization that I have so little time for things like cooking and eating. When I envisioned this, I had hopes of making wonderful vegan meals (I know these are possible), but everything I do now is so rushed.

Third Investment, Day 1

I've changed jobs, and now get up so early that I usually can't handle breakfast. At least, not for a bit. So I ended up scarfing down a few of these as a substitute - vegan olive oil banana cookies.

Lunch - salad, homemade vinaigrette, apple.

I was feeling the call of carbs by the time I got home - so dinner, whole wheat pasta, homemade sauce from leeks, mushrooms, and canned tomatoes. And wine.

Second Investment, Day 7

Slept in, so breakfast - peanut butter toast! - was more of a brunch.

And "lunch" was more of an early dinner with Tracey! From the taco truck near her studio - a veggie burrito - rice, beans, carrots, radishes, onions, cilantro, lettuce.

Second Investment, Day 6

Peanut butter toast for breakfast!

Another amazing salad - arugula and kale from the garden, tomatoes and plums from the farmers' market, broccoli and nuts.

Penne and vegan puttanesca for dinner.
