Day 10: New Recipes Coming

I went to the grocery store yesterday and got some more veggies, fruit and a few vegetarian specialty stuff: vegan cheeses, non-dairy frozen dessert, tempeh, nutritional yeast, raw organic cashews. I've found some great-looking vegan recipes that I am dying to try out, like cashew cheese.

For today's lunch, I'd like to make a vegan cream of broccoli soup. We'll see how it goes. Also, finally, the last of the flatbread is gone. Thank god. I am totally powerless against it. The next time I make it I may have to freeze half the batch immediately so I won't be tempted to inhale it all at once.

Breakfast:
1 banana
1 cup of coffee with soymilk and stevia
1 glass of water

Morning Snack#1:
Green Smoothie
  • 1 banana
  • 1 mango
  • 1 handful of baby spinach
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 scoop of Michael's Super Defense food powder

8 almonds
small handful of raw sunflower seeds
1 glass of water

Morning Snack#2:
1 glass of water
8 grape tomatoes
Lunch:
roasted red pepper and garlic hummus and sprouts with tomato on whole grain bread
warm carob drink
1 glass of water
1/2 a tomato with hummus
Dinner:
homemade pizza with vegan cheese
3 glasses of water


Notes:
  • Recipes coming up for testing: vegan creamy brocooli soup; cashew cheese

  • I'll be making that carrot salad again soon.

  • I've ordered laptop lunch boxes for the girls' lunches. These are basically bento boxes. The girls are excited about all the things we can put in them. My younger daughter has really wanted a Dora lunchbox, so I thought that we could personalize her by decorating the top of the box with Dora pictures.

  • I wanted to test out the meltiness of the vegan cheese I bought the other day. It melted pretty well; it wasn't indistinguishable from regular mozz, but it actually looked like a typical frozen pizza when you take it out of the oven. You can still see the shape of some of the shreds. It browed well and tastes pretty good. I've heard good things about cashew cheese. Apparently it melts very well and can taste as cheesy as you want by manipulating the ingredients. Nutritional yeast is supposed to add a very realistic cheese taste.
