Week One of Vegetarian eating. The hardest thing is remembering that I cannot eat certain things. Eating vegetarian requires a conscious effort.
Breakfasts at home are typically vegetarian, so this isn't anything new.
I've been on an oat bran kick, and Lennie usually rotates cereal (if he's pressed for time) and eggs and toast. Sometimes I overachieve and make pancakes. Regular for him, coconut for me.
After the Hot Chocolate 15K, we walked over to Brunch for breakfast. Luckily, they had their vegetarian items marked with a little "V" symbol, so it made it easy to narrow in on my options.
Prior to this, my husband had not tried any meat substitutes, so I was careful with my selections. I eat these Morningstar Tomato & Basil Pizza Burgers on the regular and I think they taste like pizza, so I figured he would like them (based on the amount of pizza he consumes).
When he was home for lunch, I put together a little toasted sandwich featuring one of the "pizza patties". He actually liked it, but declared, "You do know this tastes nothing like a burger?". Yes, I know, but it is delicious.
I recently saw Christina post this recipe for Vegan Chili, and after scanning the ingredients, I realized I had everything except corn, so I threw it together and let it simmer for a couple hours.
Another dinner that is easy to vegetarian-ize? taco bowls. I cooked quinoa with veggie broth and salsa, and some pinto beans with garlic and cumin and put out all the fixings.
We're eating pretty well over here...
Are you a fan of spicy foods? I love spicy stuff, but sometimes it doesn't love me.
You you eat at the table every night?
