6 vegetable tart with buckwheat crust at Le Pain Quotidien. Although the tart was delicious, it was too little food, I was starving an hour later and had to run to the cafeteria for a gigantic bagel. 😦

Chocolate protein cake with sunflower seed butter paired with green juice.

Last but not least, I finally made black bean brownies! Let me tell you, this thing is MUCH better than brownies!!! It’s like eating a decadent chocolate fudge cake! When I was eating, I kept saying: I can’t believe this, this is surreal, why I waited so long to make it!!!!!

  1. You have a good little shopper! 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to make black bean brownies for a long time! I’ll have to make them soon!

  2. Sofia is learning how to shop early…..good girl! 🙂 The brownies look awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever tried them with the beans, but I’ve heard from many that they are decadent.
