My fun in the sun continued today at the Central Florida VegFest!
The Central Florida VegFest was a celebration of all things Vegan, Organic, and Animal Friendly.
There were dozens of booths offering vegan food, free samples, and information on local causes in the Orlando area.
I was craving a vegan cookie or brownie, but this booth caught my attention.
Especially when I discovered they had a Pumpkin Spice flavor.
The vegan nitrogen ice cream was interesting and reminded me more of creamy italian ice than ice cream. I are about half before I tossed the bowl. It wasn’t as rich and flavorful as I was hoping.
I also had a couple bites of a Strawberry Brownie that somehow missed the camera.
Maddie and I explored for a good hour, before heading home and chilling out in front of the tv for a couple of hours.
For dinner I got a little creative.
Originally, I had planned on having a baked sweet potato topped with chickpeas & marinara sauce, but went with a twist on a twice baked potato instead.
I baked a sweet potato in the over at 375 for 45 minutes, then scooped the insides out once it cooled.
The insides were mushed in a bowl with marinara sauce and chickpeas.
And finally topped with cheese and baked for another 10 minutes in the oven.
The results were amazing!
This meal just gave me a whole slew of ideas on different combinations I can creat with the twice baked potato concept. 😉
On the side I had some frozen brussel sprouts that were heated up in the microwave.
A little chocolate cured my after dinner sweet tooth.
Tomorrow morning I had a 15 miler planned with my sister. I love how my miles are slowly creeping, the 15 miles are going to rock! 😉
And VOTE for these lovely ladies to help bring them to the Top 20. 😉
