Plant Wise + Cream Cheese Cravings + Eggs

plantwise southern charm salad


So many great meals to share today!

I had such a delicious plant-based dinner from Plant Wise the other night.

While I usually gravitate towards the same foods when I go places, the nice girl at Plant Wise suggested the Southern Charm salad and I’m so glad that I listened.

In the Southern Charm Salad (according to Plant Wise menu):

Kale, Cilantro, Brown Rice, Tomato, Red Onion, Carrots, Topped with Bean Chili, Special Sauce (Mix of BBQ/Cashew/Dijon/Sriracha). *Contains Tree Nuts (Cashews)

The picture below is what my lunch salad looks like before I chopped it all up:

  • Romaine
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Onion
  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts
  • Chickpeas
  • Avocado
  • Vegan Dill Dressing


I made this salad for dinner when I was really hungry and not in the mood to wait for anything to be prepared.

  • Romaine
  • Roasted Cauliflower
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Chickpeas
  • Leftover Brown Rice
  • Dr. Praeger’s Veggie Burger
  • Vegan Dill Dressing


I went to Stew Leonard’s for watermelon and left with watermelon and a slice of margarita pizza.

Stew Leonard’s has great pizza!


My warm-weather running craving tends to be vegetable cream cheese.

After my boardwalk run in Long Beach on Sunday, I stopped at Town Bagel for a salad (which comes with a bagel) and a side of vegetable cream cheese.

Runners understand what I mean when I say that this half bagel with vegetable cream cheese was the greatest tasting food I’ve had in a while. Food just hits different after a good, sweaty run.


I don’t eat eggs often. At all. In fact, I avoid eggs and egg whites because I’ve found a correlation between eating eggs and the severity of my menstrual cramps.

But. I felt like an egg last week and then the other night, I wanted to make an omelet so I could have toast with vegetable cream cheese on the side for dinner. I’m hopeful that eggs once or twice in a month won’t affect me. Fingers crossed.

This was actually more of a scramble than an omelet, actually. I cooked mushrooms, onion, and cauliflower in a pan and then added an egg plus some whites. Avocado on top.

That’s about it for my today! I did an update to my blog and the editor looks totally different. I don’t like change, especially within where I type this blog, so I need to go figure out how to revert back to original WordPress editing!
