What I’ve Been Eating Lately | November 2017

I’ve been eating (and cooking) a bunch of delicious stuff lately, and thought I’d share it with you all in a blog post!

I recently found an awesome vegan waffle recipe on the Food Network and have been making them when I want something on the sweeter side for breakfast.  It’s the perfect vegan waffle recipe, and I use unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil in the recipe for a lower fat version. I love topping the waffles with peanut butter, bananas, and syrup.

Another one of my go-to breakfasts is a tofu scramble, hash browns, veggies, and toast. It is so hearty and perfect for mornings I wake up starving. I love altering this breakfast based on veggies I have on hand, and topping it with different sauces and herbs.

There have been several mornings this month that I wanted something not even close to being healthy… that usually results in vegan biscuits and gravy. This is a dish I thought I’d never be able to have after going vegan, but to my surprise it’s incredibly easy to veganize. I’ve been using The Southern Vegan’s recipe and using LightLife sausage throughout the gravy.

This recipe is seriously so delicious and even though it’s not the healthiest way to start your day it’s MUCH better for you than non-vegan biscuits and gravy.

What I Eat In A Day | October 24, 2017

I started off the morning with my favorite breakfast that I’ve been making almost every morning lately. It’s the perfect savory breakfast that is super healthy, hearty, simple, and delicious! 

I started by adding about a cup of frozen hash browns to a pan with a tiny bit of olive oil and cooked them until they were crispy. In a separate pan I sautéed crumbled tofu (I add a tiny bit of turmeric to give it some color/flavor), peppers, onion, and kale. At the very end I threw in some garlic and chopped basil for some added flavor and nutrition.

And I don’t stop there… I’ve been packing in even more nutrients by adding nutritional yeast (for B vitamins, iron, & zinc) and kelp flakes (for iodine). I top it all with extra black pepper and some hot sauce for a kick. A dish like this is the perfect meal to start your day off because it’s SO much food, and will keep you full for hours. 

Of course I paired it with a mug of French pressed coffee to which I added in some unsweetened soy milk.

What I Eat In A Day | September 1, 2016

I’m back with another What I Eat In A Day post, which are my favorite to write and share! I love snooping in on what people enjoy eating, and I also love sharing some of the things I enjoy eating. I love getting inspiration from other bloggers’ What I Eat In A Day posts, so I hope that you can get some inspiration from mine… even if you’re not vegan!

Breakfast consisted of an everything bagel with Earth Balance, a super ripe banana, a glass of orange juice, and a cup of strong black coffee

Lunch was a little random, but I had some slaw made from a recipe I made last week and wanted to use it somehow. I sautéed broccoli, tempeh, onion, and green pepper with a little soy sauce, maple syrup, and ginger brine. Then wrapped the veggies up with some slaw (shredded cabbage and carrots with some vinegar and Just Mayo) in a flour tortilla.

What I Eat In A Day | March 5, 2016

I started off the morning with one of my favorite breakfasts. An Ezekiel english muffin with a slice of chao cheese melted on top, sautéed onion and tempeh, topped with avocado slices and some sirracha. This is a great savory breakfast that is quick and easy to make! I had a banana along side it, and a hot cup of black coffee.

My family and I traveled a few hours to watch my little sister play in a soccer tournament, so you’ll see quick a few snacks in this What I Eat In A Day post. I snacked on a Clif Bar on the drive there, which is probably one of my favorite snacks.

While watching her game, I snacked on some clementines, and dates rolled in coconut!

What I Eat In A Day | January 7, 2016

There is no better way to start back to blogging than with a What I Eat In A Day post!

For breakfast, I tried out something new and LOVED it! I toasted an Ezekiel English muffin with vegan Chao cheese, sautéed tempeh, spinach, avocado, and some sweet sriacha on top. The flavors were incredible, and it was a great way to start the morning with something savory rather than something sweet. I paired it with a glass of orange juice and black coffee.

A few hours later I fixed a plate of bowtie pasta with marinara sauce and broccoli. I started reading Dr. Greger’s new book titled How Not To Die and I’m loving it so far! Such amazing research and information all explained so it’s easy to understand.

After lunch I snacked on a delicious homemade vegan cookie. You can find the recipe here , I added walnuts and coconut in mine and used whole wheat and all purpose flour rather than gluten free flour. They turned out great!
