Just a small list this week of a few new meals I’ve tried over the last couple of weeks and a few items that I love. I’ve been trying to keep my meals simple lately because I never know when I’m going to have to pack everyone up and go in the back yard so that someone can see the house. Plus, it’s getting warmer and I haven’t felt like turning on the oven much. We’ve been eating a lot of salads, wraps and veggie/vegan burgers.
New meals:(see descriptions by clicking on the meal)
Spinach Noodle Soup (made on a particularly cold day)
Chickpea, Squash, and Tomato mix-up served over whole wheat pasta
Pictured above is a pink smoothie made with: 1/2- 1 cup almond milk, 1 small banana, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 4oz soy yogurt, 1 tsp vanilla, agave nectar to taste, and 1 tbsp wheat germ. Blend all ingredients in blender and wha-la! Very very yummy. The boys loved it!
Featured shopping items:
Kashi Autumn Wheat Cereal. My new favorite cereal! It’s organic and only has a few ingredients. Lightly sweetened it’s very yummy with Silk.
Agave Nectar I’ve been buying this for quite a while. It’s a great alternative to honey. I mostly use it for sweetening my tea but it’s great for sweetening other things as well.
Bear Naked Vanilla Almond Crunch It’s a very tasty granola mix, perfect for yogurt, a snack or as cereal with soy milk.
Melissa’s Soyrizo I love making this with diced yukon gold potatoes, then using it as a taco or burrito filling with all the usual garnishes. Very tasty!
