These wings are hawt

Breakfast consisted of a green smoothie, as usual. The base was one of those coconut waters that I picked up yesterday (orange peel and passion fruit infused...exotique, non?) mixed with some water. There were also two bananas, a couple handfuls of spinach, a romaine heart (still beating), three teaspoons of ground flax seeds, and frozen blue berries and raspberries. This made too much smoothie, we ended up with almost two pint glasses each.
Does anyone know if adding flax seed to a smoothie decreases the absorbtion of the other vitamins/minerals/antioxidants? I read somewhere that if you take omegas in pill form that you should take it at a different time than other supplements, but ground flax seed might be different.
Lunch was too embarrasing to record photographically. We had some leftover green beans with ketchup, potato chips, cookies, and some nasty frozen potato knishes that were probably past their prime. We ended up giving them to the dog who found them agreable enough, but he has tried to eat cat shit a couple times so I wouldn't put much stock in his endorsement.

Dinner was delish. We had tempeh "wings" slathered and baked using the convection microwave in Vegan Dad's Sweet Sticky Wingz Sauce with a little faux chicken broth powder added. If I don't branch out to some other sources of inspirations I'll have to rename my blog "a homage to vegan dad". Also we had some couscous with random spices, and veggies with ponzu (awesome stuff). I did exercise my creative juices a bit and made up a vegan ranch sauce. My boyfriend said the taste was a bit on the "nooch-y" side, but I thought it was pretty good. I added cucumber to add to the cooling effect (a ton of hot sauce on the wings) just like the yogurt sauce in indian cuisine (riata).
