Oh my god guys this weekend has been so hectic. After three consecutive nights working at makeup for Scottsdale Fashion Week and being up way past my bedtime, I slept like a rock.
You also have to understand that I prefer to be in bed at 10, so seeing the clock at 2am when I get under the covers is devastating.
But it was such an amazing opportunity and I’m so happy I got to be apart of it.
Now onto the food.
Tempeh is weird guys. I don’t get it. Obviously this is the first time I’ve ever had it, and I would honestly say that it was a success.
This recipe called for tempeh, lettuce, and the ingredients above (for the aioli).
Mayo, vegan or not, kinda grosses me out so while I was making the sauce and tasting it, my hopes were way down for this Sammie. But I was surprised when it turned out! The secret to any sandwich guys, is the bread.
This guy on the bicycle has my back – it’s so good and #sprouted. I used to eat a Sara Lee brand “diet” bread that was 45 calories per slice. Sounds like everything I was looking for until you see how processed it is. I switched because I knew my body would be happier and also flax is so filling.
For this Sammie I of course toasted the bread because toast beats bread any day.
It makes a pretty good looking sandwich featuring some frozen veggies because health.
Alterations I made were putting less aioli on the bread, toasting it, and not using oil to heat the tempeh.
Dessert after was a mango and some sprouts dark chocolate covered pretzels which went so fast I couldn’t even take a picture! 😉
I have no idea if these posts are even fun to read or not – you let me know. I’m just excited to share my food with you guys!
