I’m SO excited for the weekend!!  I don’t have any homework and for the first time in a couple weeks, I am going to sit down and watch A LOT of TV and make some vegan staples!  I’m sure that’s not too exciting but there are so many shows on my DVR that I haven’t watched and I have be dying to see them! 

My mid-morning snack was a small apple.

For lunch I did a simple Dijon Tofu Salad and a Bowl of Fruit.

Strawberries, Grapes, and Cantaloupe.

Salad with Spinach, Carrots, Red Peppers, Cucumbers, and Dijon Mustard Tofu.

All of this came out to 342 calories, 14 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fiber.

No Water!

I woke up this morning to the worst news… our house has no water!  A water pipe burst underneath the house and we have no running water until tomorrow.  I am going to take a cycle class at 2 just so I can shower at the YMCA afterwards.  I am pretty bummed and since we can’t wash dishes, I made a quick platter of fresh foods and tofu.

Carrots and Sliced Cucumbers.

Apple Slices and Cantaloupe.

A slice of plain Tofu.

This mini meal was 208 calories, 12 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fiber.  I’ll figure out something after cycle class…

Asian Explosion

When it comes to vegan cooking, Stir Fry is one of my favorite dishes.  It’s easy to assemble and makes my palate dance with delight!  If you couldn’t guess, tonight’s dinner is Asian Stir Fry with Baked Tofu, Brown Rice, and a fresh Broccoli Slaw.

Bagged Broccoli slaw with red wine vinegar, s+p, tomato basil garlic, and nayonaise.  This was really great, so great that it’s in my lunch tomorrow!

Oven Baked and Marinated Tofu.

Stir Fry Veggies!  Broccoli, water chestnuts, carrots, onions, mushrooms, red peppers, and celery.  This mix is actually from Birds Eye and is honestly better than TJ’s frozen stir fry mix.  I’m not sure why but it stays crisp even though it’s frozen.  This picture doesn’t do it any justice.  I kind of splurged on sodium for this meal… lots of ‘low sodium’ soy sauce!

and a side of Brown Rice.

Dinner was 408 calories, 17 grams of protein, and 7 grams of fiber.

Looks Like Rain!

The air is cold and the sky is grey, it looks like rain!  I am going to make this post as fast as possible so I can run to the gym and beat the rain!  I really don’t want to get rained on today!  I’ll read everything you guys posted after my run 🙂

Ok, Lunch time!

Freshly cut carrots and cucumbers with 1 tbs of Annie’s Goddess Dressing

A snack bag with grapes and cantaloupe.

1/3 cup Silk Yogurt with milled flax seeds.  It doesn’t look look but it’s a great combo!

and a Veganomicon Chickpea Cutlet on a tiny bed of fresh spinach.

Lunch was 410 calories, 17 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fiber!

I’m crossing my fingers for no rain!

Spicy Polenta Casserole

Using Kath as an inspiration, I made a Polenta Casserole tonight!

The bottom layer of my casserole consisted of black beans, diced tomatoes, mild green chili peppers, bell peppers, and an assortment of SPICY spices!

Next, I topped it with soft polenta and tofu ricotta.  I don’t have any vegan cheese on hand since I tend to eat it too quickly so I made the ricotta using tofu, lemon, and garlic.  Not the traditional tofu ricotta but it was the flavor I was after so it worked out!

I baked it in the oven at 375* until the polenta got thick and the tofu browned a bit on the top.

I served my casserole with Trader Joe’s Brittany Blend and in the end, drizzled the bowl with 1/4 cup soy yogurt.

It wasn’t pretty, but boy was it good!  This super filling meal was 404 calories, 22 grams of protein, and 14 grams of fiber.

Burger and Sweet Potato Salad

Today’s lunch was so big and filling! I want to tell you what I had so I’m going to jump straight into it!

First off, Sweet Potato Salad!

Sweet potatoes with celery, raisins, almonds, and a stevia ‘sauce’.  To make the sauce, I put some water in a pot added stevia, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.  I let it boil up until it carmelized and became a sticky mess.  Then, I threw in the raisins which absorbed most of the sauce.  It was definitely an experiment but it worked out wonderfully!

Next, A BIG burger!  A boca burger with mustard, nayosaise, spinach, tomato, all on a Trader Joe’s whole wheat bun!  The bun really made it delicious, I’ll definitely be eating these a lot more often!

Lunch was 458 calories, 24 grams of protein, and 14 grams of fiber

Fresh Friday

Happy Friday everyone, I’m so excited it’s officially the weekend!  I’m also going to the local trail at 4 pm so i’m pretty excited about that as well, I’ll be running with someone else so it should be a nice change!   Ok, lets move onto some food…

For snack today, I had a big apple that had been calling my name!  It was nice to eat a whole apple and not just slices, I think it took my entire break to eat it… 20 minutes?

For lunch, I kept things simple with a really tasty salad.  Spinach leaves, slivered almonds, carrots, cherry tomatoes, fresh garlic, tofu, s+p, and a squeeze of lemon juice!

Lunch and snack came to 317 calories, 15 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fiber!

 Well, i’m off to make a snack and then go run!
