Meal Planning 11.25.18

To say I stuffed myself to the brim on Thanksgiving and the day after would be an understatement, yet I still want another piece of pie since I was too full to have it last night! That means it’s time to get back in a healthy eating routine before Christmas parties and goodies arrive! Yesterday…

Meal Planning for the week of Thanksgiving!

It’s Thanksgiving week! Time for family, food, and beautiful fall weather. Thanksgiving has always been big in our family. I’m from a huge family (my mom is one of six) and when I was little we used to go to my grandparent’s house with my grandma’s siblings as well so it was a big, fun…

Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I woke up this morning with no alarm at 6:30 so I figured I should enjoy my time off and start with a fun breakfast! I ordered some donut pans from Amazon and I’ve been waiting to try them out! I found this simple vegan donut recipe on Pinterest that’s oil free and they don’t…

Simple Chickpea Noodle Soup

I wasn’t feeling great over the weekend and wanted to make something easy on my stomach. This Chickpea Noodle Soup was easy to make and even easier to eat! It tasted so good! I topped it with Violife vegan parmesan and we roasted some pita bread to dunk in. As always, I had some apples…

BBQ Lentil Balls

I made these BBQ Lentil Balls the other night and they were so tasty! They’re savory and hearty and I paired them with roasted potatoes and onions and garlic green beans. They’re protein and healthy carb packed and have minimal fat. I found the easiest way to make lentil based things is to buy lentils…

Vegan French Toast

Frigid, fire, football, French toast, and food memories! My grandpa always made the grandchildren French toast when we were over for breakfast and now it’s become a food memory just like everything else he used to make. Now when I make those things, I’m basically crying by the time I sit down to eat it….

Broccoli, Chickpea, and Rice Casserole

I found this recipe on Pinterest a while ago and made it last night. It was so easy!! You literally dump everything in a casserole dish and put it in the oven. An hour later you have a tasty meal! I only changed one or two things and it turned out really good for a…

Black Bean Tortilla Soup

I didn’t use to love soups, I didn’t even really like them. I’m not sure why this year I’m all about the soups! I want to try a lot more in the upcoming cold months, so I decided to try this black bean tortilla soup. I basically look at pictures of recipes on sites and…

Meal Planning 11.4.18

This cauliflower curry was DELICIOUS and made by one of the moms in my class! She’s so sweet and has made me food several times and every time I’m so thankful. I cook so much that it’s a luxury to have someone cook for me! It’s always veganized and so tasty and I eat it…

Hoisin Lime Noodle Bowl

Nothing says Friday to me more than sweatpants and a bowl of noodles. Especially in this gloomy weather! #tiredteacherlife yes I know I’m only 28, but by Friday I feel 78. I saw Bosh.tv making a noodle bowl with a Hoisin sauce and decided to make one as well and just make the sauce up…

Easy Chickpea Curry

Well it’s a day that Josh is working late, so curry night for me! It’s been a wild week… and it’s not even Halloween at school yet. I think I’m getting a cold and currently sitting with a box of tissues in my lap because my nose is a faucet. What better night to make…

Vegan Vegetable Pot Roast

What says “fall” more than a pot roast? Am I right? I haven’t had one in forever… let alone since becoming vegan so I thought I would try to make a veggie based one in my beautiful turquoise Le Creuset beauty! I’ve always loved the veggies in a roast, so I thought it could work….

Meal Planning 10.28.18

I’ve been meaning to try this Miyoko’s Un-Lox Your Dreams vegan cream cheese since I spotted it in Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago so when trying to come up with an appetizer for Saturday football games, I thought it was my time to try it out! For the game I sliced a ciabatta baguette…

Mediterranean Crispy Chickpea Wraps with Cucumber Tzatziki

Last night I made these quick and scrumptious chickpea pita wraps that really might have been my favorite meal of the week, which is funny because it took the least amount of time to make. Whenever I’m craving Mediterranean food, I don’t crave the meat in gyros or cheese, I crave the intense spices, creamy…

Warm Fall Vegetable Pasta Salad

I saw a version of a Fall Vegetable pasta salad on Rabbitsandwolves Instagram page and it looked perfect for a fall day! I changed mine up a little bit and used some different veggies and made my dressing differently. I didn’t want to use oil so didn’t want to use vegan mayo so I made…

Egg Roll in a Bowl with Grilled Bok Choy

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it might be a healthier option than ordering greasy egg rolls from Chinese delivery (again). It’s vegan, oil free, GF, and has the same Asian cabbagey taste without all the fried fatty parts. I didn’t add the peas, just the Edamame for protein and swapped the black…

Minestrone Soup

This fall weather is giving me all the soup cravings! I’m planning to make at least one soup recipe a week for this fall and winter season to try new ones out and most are a great way to get a lot of veggies in without a lot of calories. I love this one because…

Meal Planning 10.22.18

After a long weekend of fun at my cousin’s wedding, I need to detox. We had so much fun that included celebrating them while eating and drinking. I’m thankful there were vegan options for me to have all weekend long so it made it easier. At the bridesmaid luncheon I had a vegetable panini and…

Lemon Chickpea Orzo Soup

I used to make this soup with chicken all of the time in the colder months and it was my go to for sick family and friends. I decided to veganize it, which wasn’t hard because I just had to swap chickpeas for chicken and veggie broth instead of chicken broth. I used Vegetarian Better…
