Dessert/ Dinner

Vegetables + Chocolate Do a Body Good

My tummy has had that sort of anxious-blah feeling all day. The feeling where you really don’t feel hungry but if someone handed you food, you would eat. In that respect, I was looking for something comforting and easy to digest for dinner and, upholding my recipe tester status, I looked to Lindsay for inspiration. Sadly, I cannot give away the recipes of these dishes but know that they were awesome and will be featured in Lindsay’s upcoming book!

I made Maple Glazed Vegetables (I used spaghetti squash, white asparagus, carrots, yams and broccoflower and threw in some chickpeas at the end) and, for dessert, Double Chocolate Muffins! Mmmmmmm these guys were soooooooooo good and rich….just what the doctor ordered!!



I have work to do for class tomorrow and laundry to fold, but I plan to relax in a bubble bath and read later on. Have a good night, everyone!

    Ugh, I hate that feeling. Food just never seems to taste as good when I get in funks like that. But I think even if eating was the last thing I wanted to do, if I were handed a plate like that of those maple glazed vegetables, I would completely change my mind. That looks SO good. And I’m really full from dinner right now, but I would eat that in a second.

    And the melty chocolate chips in those muffins…oh. my. gosh. YUM.

    Oh my gosh, those muffins are oozing with goodness – literally!

    I hope your tummy feels better… Your dinner looks like it was also really great. Maple-glazed anything is awesome: it’s my favorite way to glaze tofu, just a little tamari and maple and yum yum yum.

    Maple Glazed Vegetables and Double-Chocolate Muffins sound like the perfect foods to consume, when you’re in need of comfort and easily-digested meals – yum!! Lindsay is amazing with her recipes, for sure.

    Good luck with your assignments and laundry tonight – “see” you in the a.m.!

    Oh my goodness!! That dish and those muffins look terrific! Can’t wait to see what else you test. =)

    I also hate that feeling… where you psychologically want to eat, but your body says no. =(

    i know that feeling!!! one of the worst feelings, in my opinion.

    at least your dinner looks so so so good. I can’t wait for Lindsay’s book to come out.

    I’ll be thinking and praying for your grandfather and family tonight and tomorrow. My best thoughts go to you and your family.

    Yum, your Ezekiel cereal looks delicious.. I might have to give those a try sometime soon. 🙂

    Omg, your Goddess Garbanzo Sandwich looks so scrumptious… I can’t wait til my copy of ED&BV arrives so I can make it.

    I really do hope your grandpa gets better soon, Jenna.. know that he is in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there and think positively. 🙂
