Meal Planning 8.12.18

I’m taking the time while my family naps to write about this week’s upcoming menu. My sister had a baby on Monday, so we’re visiting them this weekend in Philly! It’s been so much fun playing with our 2 year old nephew and holding our newborn niece, but everyone needed a nap. I decided to…

Meal Planning 7.23.18

After a glorious two weeks of endless white carbs (bread, pasta, bruschetta, pizza, bread, pasta, repeat) I’m ready to get back on my high carb low fat lifestyle. I know I usually eat a lot of carbs, 80% of my daily intake in fact, but complex carbs affect me so differently. After a few days…

Meal Planning 6.24.18

Above: Honeycrisp apple with PB2 and Everything but the Bagel seasoning These weeks of summer are flying by! I should have known, they always do, yet I’m always surprised how fast they go. It’s another week to meal plan so I made my list and went to Trader Joe’s yesterday for my weekly haul. It’s…

Meal Planning 6.20.18

Since the week has already started, I’m behind on updating you on what I’m making for dinners this week. Sorry for the delay! So far I’ve made some simple meals I can update you on and I’ll fill in the rest on what I plan to make. Monday I had a friend over for dinner…

My Vegan Fridge

Since I had leftover falafel last night, I thought I would write a post giving you some insider views of what I usually have in our house food-wise. This was taken right when I got back from Trader Joe’s so it was stocked for the week and I had enough for 6 meals. This is…

Meal Planning 6.10.18

I made this Sesame Tofu and Broccoli the other night and didn’t include the sesame oil, and I didn’t coat the tofu because I baked it instead of frying it until crunchy. It was okay, but wasn’t fantastic. I’m not sure if it was just from the missing oil, but it tasted too tangy like…

Meal Planning 4.26.18

I made this roasted eggplant and hummus pita one day for lunch this week and used up some leftovers I had from the lasagna. I toasted the roasted eggplant in the toaster oven topped with some low sodium soy and nutritional yeast so it formed a glaze on the eggplant and then added hummus, cucumber,…

Meal Planning 4.16.18

Well it’s already been a week back in normal life mode and it’s sped by. I didn’t share what I made last week getting back in routine because I was sharing about Atlantis but I made lentils and rice, chickpea balls with pasta and roasted kale, portobello burgers, easy faux-cheezy broccoli potato soup, Chinese chickpea…

Meal Planning 3.19.18

This was my weekly grocery haul that I got this morning from Trader Joe’s. Guess how much?? (answer at the bottom) If you don’t go to Trader Joe’s, you’re probably spending too much! Their produce is fresh and they mostly have organic of everything and it’s so much cheaper than the big chains in our…

Meal Planning 2.24.18

After eating out a lot more than normal and I’m sure eating way too much oil, I wanted to get back to eating HCLF no oil this week so I planned some basics that would fit the bill. I was doing well with weight loss on this lifestyle so it’s best to just jump back…

Meal Planning 2.3.18

This is my view this morning while meal planning for the week. Read more of The Starch Solution, Louis on my lap watching Animal Planet, and a fire in the fire place because it’s COLD! As Josh said last night “it’s been a good week” for dinners in our house, so now I feel the…

Meal Planning HCLF 1.29.18

So far, the HCLF lifestyle has been a success! I’m down two pounds since I started about a week and a half ago so I’m going to continue eating this way. It doesn’t feel like a diet because apparently this is the way your body wants to eat. You eat whole, plant based food without…

Meal Planning 1.15.18

I’ve been struggling to figure out what to eat or how much of it to eat to get into a stable daily food schedule. This week I stumbled on an article giving an overview of a book called How Not to Die by Michael Greger M.D. and he basically tells you the best food to…

Weekly Dinner Planning

Meal planning is something I usually look forward to every weekend. I curl up on the couch with my huge mug of tea and look for recipes that I want to cook that week, then make my grocery list accordingly. I might decide to switch things up based on our taste, but I’ve never been…
