Every now and then I eat like a vegetarian/vegan for 3 weeks. Sometimes it’s due to a Biblical Fast (Daniel Fast), sometimes the reason is to improve my vegetable intake. When I need a veggie makeover, I often go to my Vegan Vegetarian Starter Kit to know what to eat. The items in this Kit allow me to eat well and not dread the whole experience. Here are my items:
My goal is not to complicate my family meals. If I make meat for everyone, I simply add items from this list as side dishes. So a Dinner would look like this:
Broccoli slaw Salad
Our go to Breakfast is always:
For Lunch I often eat leftovers.
I realize that I shouldn't reinvent the wheel so I use items from this list to increase our vegetable intake.
This time around I bought a few new items so I will be trying new recipes. I bought Tahini and changed the way I make Hummus. I bought avocado oil and red curry paste as well. I'm eager to try these new things!
I’m going to try not to bake a lot because every time I bake I go pastry crazy (as in, I eat everything almost immediately). I have learned to give away most baked goods but still, I’m trying to cut down on baking just so I won’t overeat. I bought Almond flour for the first time and I baked Pumpkin Chocolate Paleo Muffins with it. It was decadent! I mostly try to stick with fruits and nuts for Dessert and the occasional dark chocolate.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you found some inspiration to increase your vegetable/grain/fruit intake! Be healthy, one meal at a time my friend!
