Meal Planning 9.9.18

By the time Saturday rolls around, our fridge is pretty empty and it’s time for another Trader Joe’s run. I wanted to find something to make a yummy hot breakfast (since every work day I have fruit for breakfast lately) and the only thing I could find was some quick oats and some fruit. I…

Apple Spice Pancakes and Meal Plans 8.19.18

I woke up this morning wanting to make something extra yummy for breakfast. I’ve been having a bowl of watermelon for breakfast lately, so a stack of fluffy pancakes sounded like a treat! I’m still working on my vegan baked goods (my banana bread from yesterday was a total FAIL) so I thought pancakes are…

Vegans in Vegas, baby!

This past weekend we were in Las Vegas for my best friend’s wedding and I was really excited for more vegan options available for us to have. I did some research and asked others what restaurants were favorites, but unfortunately most of them ended up being off the main strip so we didn’t want to…

Tofu and Veggie Scramble and Breakfast Potatoes

“Is that scrambled eggs?!” you ask. No! Can you believe that it’s crumbed tofu and it mimics the texture of scrambled eggs? It’s true, try and see! This is a meal that I usually don’t think to make on weekends when I actually have time, so it’s a great breakfast for dinner meal. Who doesn’t…

Atlantis Veg-antures

As still a semi-new vegan, travel is something I get a little anxious about food-wise. Atlantis has an option to call the chef’s office 2 weeks ahead of time to let them know of any dietary needs but I figured vegan is something that is getting common enough that they can make things work and…

Maple Dijon Buddha Bowl

Want to get all of your veggies in? This is the meal for you! I was in the mood for roasted Brussel sprouts because we haven’t had them in a while, so I wanted to fit them in a meal this week. A buddha bowl is a great way to fit in any veggies you…

Beach Meal Planning for HCLF

Vacation time! It’s the first vacation in our amazing year of vacations that we have planned and we’re going down to the beach near Seaside, FL. We’re so ready for a week of sun and relaxation in one of our favorite places. We love going down in the winter when it’s not so crowded and…

All That, For How Much???

Happy sunny Sunday everyone! I made some simple recipes today, Josh was up sick most of the night so I was cleaning the house today and cooking meals for myself. I decided it was a good night for soup to help the sick! It was pretty much all he ate today and I hope it…

1st Day High Carb, Low Fat Vegan

Today I started my high carb, low fat vegan experiment. I weighed myself this morning for the first time since August and was semi- relieved to see I’ve gained 5 pounds because I was thinking it was more. I spent most of my morning watching High Carb Hannah videos and writing down meal ideas and…

Berry and Almond Butter Toast

  Healthy and pretty breakfast, anyone? This is a good example of my weekend breakfast, when I can actually eat something not in my car. It’s wholesome, flavorful, filling, and you can pretty much do anything you want with this idea. I like the combination of flavors and textures, plus it takes about 3 minutes…
