I am about to begin the fourth week of more plant based meals and less meat and so far I am loving it! So many delicious fresh fruits and vegetables have been coming into the house and I am trying things I had never before considered like almond milk, for instance. At first I wasn't sure, but the more I've tried it the better I like it. The girls are really liking it too!
|Whole wheat waffles, bananas, blueberries|
|Homemade granola, peaches, blueberries, almond milk|
|Oatmeal with strawberries & blueberries|
|Cod, sauteed zucchini & yellow squash|
|Red beans, rice, avocado in a whole wheat tortilla|
|Stuffed bell peppers|
|A nice dinner salad|
|A garden salad|
|Orange cranberry scone with a fresh fruit salad|
|Vegan chocolate cake|
|One of the lunches I packed to take to work|
|And here is another one|
I prepare a lot more from scratch, in fact pretty much everything, but I find I am actually cooking a lot less. And I am really enjoying that too. I'm excited about creating new things and eating them too!
|A snack of hummus & whole wheat tortilla wedges|
|Vegetable lasagna with sauteed green beans|
|Loads of fresh produce!|
|I took this pretty bowl to work|
Now I keep a fruit bowl at my desk for snacking
I'm beginning to think this new eating plan might be here to stay. And that is probably a very good thing!
