Day Eighteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 18 Now get ready to feast your eyes on my new favorite VEGAN DESSERT! It’s AHHHH-mazing. I’m working out the details still but recipe will come soon. I wish I could eat it every night. In fact, I’ve made it a few times already… I’m not for sure how vegan the chocolate chips are though. I bought Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips that don’t have any milk or milk products in them but they are […]

Day Seventeen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 17 We had our neighbors over for dinner so we went all out! Our dinner consisted of a spinach and fruit salad for an appetizer, the Pesto with Vegetables for the main course, and a homemade Larabar for dessert. This time for the pasta we used the same macaroni noodles from before but we roasted the tomatoes first. We loosely followed this recipe. Well, we just added dried basil instead of fresh for the […]

Day Fifteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 15 For breakfast I opted for toast with peanut butter and banana slices and lunch was left over stir fry. The black bean veggie burgers were so good I had to make them again. They turned out delicious! I ate it with some ketchup and a side of steamed broccoli (my new favorite). For exercise I did the second day of the Five Day Workout Plan.  Afterwards I made sure to have another good […]

Day Fourteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 14 For breakfast I had oatmeal with dried cranberries, cinnamon, and banana slices. The Sweet Potato Surprise tastes just as good the next day. I will definitely be making it again. For a snack I came up with the idea to make Zucchini Chips. I’ve seen recipes floating around the internet before but I added my own mix to it. Recipe to come! Let’s just say, they turned out so good, I ate them […]

For lunch, I felt like I needed some fresh veggies so I spread the white bean pesto on a sandwich and stuffed it with lots of greens, cucumber, tomato, and yellow squash. Dinner time, we got a lot more creative. Sweet Potato Surprise! I found it while […]

Day Twelve ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 12 For breakfast I had a tasty bowl of oatmeal topped with pecans, dried cranberries, and a little bit of shredded coconut. Absolutely delightful. Lunch was made up of the leftover White Bean Salad with rice and balsamic vinaigrette. I also had a little bit of the Mediterranean Baked Tofu left from Day Eight. Still just as tasty! Dinner was a total bust. I was tired and lazy so I went the PB&J route. […]

Day Ten ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 10 For breakfast I had an orange with a Larabar. It was tasty and simple. Lunch was a plate of the leftover Kale with Tomato Risotto. I love the flavors of it. I want to make it again with some actual Arborio rice though. It’s not the same without some creaminess. For dinner I was lazy and still had a Black Bean Veggie Burger so I crumbled it over a spinach salad with some […]

Day Eight ~ Vegan Challenge

Now that I’m caught up again, here’s day 8! Day 8 I was rushing in the morning so I had a quick piece of toast with some almond butter and a banana for breakfast. For a snack I was craving some kale chips so I made a small batch. I added a little paprika to them. They’re addicting! For dinner I made a recipe from one of the books I bought while in Portland: Vegan […]
