Our Thailand trip is on-deck in literally just 2 weeks

That’s 14 days, 336 hours, and 20160 seconds of no donuts. I cut it out of my diet.

But then again. It’s only 14 days, 336 hours, and 20160 seconds.

So for now, these power bowls are holding me over.

It’s no old-fashioned donut but it does keep me covered with energy for the whole day.

With roasted eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, cucumbers, olives, feta and a tangy red wine vinaigrette, I’m not missing the donuts at all.

Wait. That’s a bold-faced lie. Of course I’m missing the donuts.

But it’s okay. These bowls are bomb.com.

I also got in the bad habit of munching on the cucumber slices beforehand so I never have any left to eat with my bowl.

Hey, I needed some sort of donut substitute.
