Breakfast Cookies for Dinner

Today I actually didn't feel like eating anything that I'm not currently eating. I ate too many avocado oil kettle chips yesterday so it was a welcome change.
Kate did make some zucchini breakfast cookies and brought some to work, which was fun. I ate 3 more for dinner when I got home and I think I liked them even more. They're really good! She warned me they were not anything special and tasted like oatmeal in bite sized form, but I loved them, Maybe it was the baking spice she used. Even the raisins tasted good to me, but I bet with refined sugar free chocolate chips they would be even better...
I also make fake ice cream for dessert. Yes, I ate dessert after eating cookies for dinner. I blended bananas and cashew milk (my new favorite milk) with some greens of course, and a little peanut butter and cacao and cinnamon. I made a chocolate sauce with cacao, raw honey and coconut oil which hardens when it's cold. I topped it with toasted pecan pieces. It was so good. I think I eat just as many treats as I did when I ate sugar because I'm having fun making sugar free treats. Next up is black bean brownies. I cooked a whole bunch of beans tonight. After using canned for a while I've gone back to dried, at least for a little.

I've been feeling extra tired this week, and haven't really been working out at all. I just don't feel like it. I've been getting 7-8 hours of sleep every night but I'm also not sleeping super soundly, which might be part of the problem. I think I need more like 9 hours of sleep which is not very realistic with life happening. I wish I was one of those people who after going vegan suddenly needed way less sleep. I'm sure I could be better with things like not sleeping with my laptop on my bed or with my phone next to me. Anyways, I've been feeling slightly lethargic and "under the weather" in a happiness sense this week, but hopefully it will change with a few good night's sleeps. Jordan and I were talking the other night about some work drama that's both directly and indirectly affecting our lives, and how we're both Highly Sensitive People. It makes it hard not to let other people's emotions and issues affect us. This is why even though I actually really like my job right now, there is a lot going on at the company that I don't agree with that makes me really upset, and living with Jordan means we're bringing that energy home with us too. Unfortunately I don't think most things are going to resolve themselves any time soon so I'm just trying to focus on the positive things that are going on.
