Stuff I Ate: Seitan Steak + Nut Tacos + More!

Some random meals I've had! Earlier this week, the cafe at Crosstown Arts made my favorite thing — Seitan Steak & Cheese! They usually put this in a wrap, but this time, it was served on a pretzel roll, topped with melty vegan cheese. Side of sweet potato fries.

I don't start my whole food, plant-based lunches on the 80/20 Plants program until next week, and that's a good thing because I'm just eating whatever I want for lunch this week.

Just today, I had this lovely bowl for lunch — also from the cafe at Crosstown Arts. They made Tempeh Meatballs over handmade vegan pasta with marinara and veggies. It's so hard to find homemade vegan pasta, so I couldn't pass this up.

Here's a healthy plate from Sunday night. I'd picked up a lot of grab-and-go items from the Turnip Truck, a health food store in Nashville, before I left. They made a great quick dinner when I returned home on Sunday night. I had Tofu Edamame Salad, Chickpea Kale Salad, and Cashew Carbonara.

And here's last night's dinner — Carla Lee's Nut Tacos. These are little frozen mini tacos are made with a nut-based filling. They cook up in the air fryer in less than 10 minutes. I love keeping these tacos in the freezer for a quick week night meals. As convenience food goes, these are pretty
unprocessed! Mine are topped with avo, tomato, lettuce, and salsa. I had a salad on the side.

Though I'm still eating whatever I want for lunch and dinner, the 80/20 Plants plan has me eating whole food, plant-based breakfasts and snacks so far. I'll be doing a snack post tomorrow, but here's a breakfast from this morning — Savory Steel Cut Oats with Broccoli, Fresh Turmeric, Bragg's, & Nooch.

I see those nut tacos at Sprouts and always hope for them to go on sale, but so far no luck.
I'm always intrigued by the savory oats. I don't know why I'm so scared of them!!

Did you get that Tofu and edamame salad already made at Sprouts or do you have a recipe? It looks so good!!

Hi Holly! I actually picked it up in Nashville at the Turnip Truck, which is a little indie health food store. It was awesome! I wish I knew what was in it cause I'd love to make it again!
