It’s day 2 of our ‘What’s for dinner?’ week! For the entire week I’m taking you into my kitchen so you can take a look at what a week of simple day to day vegan eating looks like for me. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have and don’t miss yesterday’s post where we give you the lowdown on what this week will look like. Let’s get to the yummies shall we?
Breakfast was pretty simple, some whole grain toast with vegan butter and a delicious natural strawberry jam (no added sugars or sweeteners), a bowl of the most incredible Spanish melon, and one of my hubby’s famous soy lattes (decaf!) sweetened with agave.
Lunch was amazing today! Even though I could have gotten more creative with the colors for this meal, the combination of the tastes and textures was incredible! I had some brown rice, my famous caramelized onion and pumpkin topping (recipe coming soon), and a big piece of my yummy eggplant and zucchinni veggie lasagna. The chewiness of the rice, plus the sweetness of the topping and the acidity and crunchiness of the lasagna, well, let’s just say it was like a party in my mouth.
I had a refreshing snack of half a cut up nectarine, and some kamut crackers with my homemade salsa.
For dinner we had what I call my hearty garden burrito (recipe coming soon), although it’s more a wrap than a burrito because it doesn’t resemble Mexican cuisine at all! The wrap had a great array of veggies, avocado, pesto, and hummus, all wrapped in a whole grain tortilla. I served it with another one of Rip Esselstyn’s creations, his oil free roasted potato fries. You will never believe those crispy and golden potatoes were 100% oil free! Watch his movie The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue or get his book for this and other amazing recipes. By the end of the meal, we were in the mood for something sweet, so my hubby concocted these great decaf almond milk frapuccinos. They were delicious!
I hope you’re enjoying our ‘What’s for dinner’ series! If you know of anyone who is curious about eating in a more healthful way, is interested in going veggie or has actually started eating this way and needs some inspiration, please feel free to share this post with them, tweet it, facebook it, smoke signal it!
