So…. How were those recipes last week? Anyone try them out? Feel free to comment with any of your own recipe tweaks.
My favorite recipe from last week was surprisingly the ricotta toast….. it was so easy and tasty! The tomato soup was a close second….yum!
This week I am thoroughly embracing the healthy…ish lifestyle because I have plans to go out to eat….like a lot. When I go out to eat, I try not to worry too much about what I order…. I mean, I hate to pay 12$ for a salad I could easily make at home. I order whatever sounds good to me and then make sure I take home at least half of the food (unless it’s a fancy shmancy place that has super tiny portions…you know what I’m talking about). This is a win win because I eat fewer calories (still plenty I’m sure), and I get to enjoy the food a second time for lunch.
Here’s the plan:
Sunday: Vegan breakfast burritos with homemade salsa and guac
Guys…. If you haven’t tried tofu as a scrambled egg substitute, you’re really missing out! I love eggs. Like super love them. BUT the husband is allergic to eggs. Devastation. This recipe is perfect for us. I was skeptical at first, I felt there was no way tofu could resemble eggs…..I was 100% wrong. I swear I think the tofu tasted BETTER in the burrito than eggs do. Don’t knock it til you try it. Here are my recipe tweaks:
-I’m going to make homemade pico de gallo since tomatoes are still in season (but not for very much longer) by mixing chopped tomatoes, garlic, green onion, and cilantro…then I’ll add some lime juice.
-I’m going to use store bought guac (I bought these single serve guac things (4 for 4$ at Safeway) because if I buy a bigger thing of guac, it turns brown almost right away and avocados are crazy expensive right now, so it was cheaper to buy premade)
-I like everything spicy, so I’ll add more heat with a jalapeno.
-I don’t have hummus, so I’ll use tahini. I figure it won’t change much because of the small amount called for.
-I’m going to add turmeric because A) it’s tasty and B) it’ll make the tofu yellow like eggs, which is cute.
Monday: Out to dinner!
Tuesday: Out to dinner!
Wednesday: Tuscan White Bean Stew
Another good looking recipe from Buzzfeed that is vegetarian and has a lot of protein. Not going to change much about this recipe except I’m going to use roasted fresh tomatoes. I’m also going to make enough of this to eat for dinner Thursday as well.
Happy eating this week! If you try the recipes, let me know what you think. Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @the.foodie.clinician for more yoga and food pics
