More Stuff I Ate

After last Wednesday's crazy Imagine Vegan Cafe all-you-can-eat dessert buffet, I was feeling pretty gross. I'm sure I ate enough dessert to meet a month's sugar quota, so I skipped my usual post-run smoothie the next day in favor of a savory breakfast of Tofu Scramble & Toast with Onion Butter. I couldn't even handle fruit! This scramble had mushrooms, bell pepper, and carrot.

Now that it's getting cooler out, I'm bringing back a Lacy Davis-inspired breakfast standard — Warm Oats with Banana Protein N'ice Cream! This was warm oats with maple syrup topped with banana-strawberry n'ice cream with added protein powder. I love how the oats make the n'ice cream all melty.

My mom made vegan chili last weekend to top our birthday totchos! And she sent me home with the leftovers. Paul and I have been eating it atop air-fried potatoes for Chili Cheese Fries.

And over frozen's Amy's Gluten-Free Bean & Rice Burritos. On the side, I made some quick microwave nachos with Que Pasa Red Corn Tortilla Chips with Follow Your Heart cheddar shreds (review of those chips coming soon!).

I've also been loving Amy's Black Bean Burritos with melted vegan cheese and a healthy side (like the salad pictured here). These burritos have become standard lunches for us both lately!

One day last week, I grabbed the Superfood Salad (a kale salad with dried cranberries, pecans, beets,  nooch, and tahini dressing) from Farm Burger in Crosstown Concourse for a quick working lunch. I brought my laptop down there (it's downstairs from my office) and worked at the bar.

And a couple weeks back, I made the Seitan Beef Stew from my cookbook, Cookin' Crunk. I'm always trying to find vegan meal ideas that Paul will like since he's eating (mostly) vegan at home now. He always loved that nasty Dinty Moore beef stew in a can, so I figured he'd like this. And he did! Win! This was a great way for me to sneak some kale into his diet. I typically make my own seitan for this recipe, but this time, I used the No Evil Foods plain seitan.

Even more random meals coming at ya tomorrow!

Yum, this all looks so good! I can imagine needing a break from the sweets but it definitely seemed worth it! I have been wanting to try oatmeal with nice cream. I love the contrast of the hot and cold. The nice cream would be amazing on your waffles too!

I am a savory girl, and when I have too many sweets I get that sugar hangover too! That's so amazing that Paul is eating mostly vegan at home!! Progress!!

I will forever be greatful to Amy's- they were absolutely the first company to have widely available actually delicious vegan prepared foods! I had their burritos at least three times a week for like a year or more! So now they are a nostalgic food for me. Good stuff.
Love that paul is discovering how delicious vegan meals can be :)
