Teriyake Chick’n Strips

I made some delicious teriyaki chick’n strips from Gardein. Their stuff is so good!

I paired it with some black beans, lettuce, and ripe plantains.

Follow the directions on the bag for the chick’n, very simple, just stir fry it and add the sauce that comes with it.

The maduros, I found at my local grocery store. Just microwave those and that’s it!

Super simple! Enjoy!

Shirataki Noddles with Chick’n and Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Delcious meal and super easy!

Noodles: These are all tofu noodles, no wheat. They are already prepared so no big hassle cooking them.

In a small pan, cook on medium some marinera sauce with diced tomatoes and garlic. After rinsing the noodles with water, add the noodles and let it all simmer. When done, top off with some Daiya Cheese.

Sweet Potato: After rinsing the potato, put it in the microwave at “baked potato” setting. When it’s done, peel and mush the potato. Add vegan butter and brown sugar.

Chick’n: Gardein chick’n is the best! Cook in a pan at medium fire until done.

Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n Meal

Tonight we had Gardein Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n with some Kale salad, and hummus.

YUM!

You can find this brand in the meat frozen isle. It’s very easy to make. The meal comes with a little pouch with the sauce and you just cook it with the chick’n. Then I added some raw kale with some salad dressing and hummus. Dinner in minutes.

Enjoy!

Fruit Smoothies

I have decided to try some fruit smoothies with the added Alive nutritional shake.

I have created several recipes with fruits and vegetables based on some I’ve seen at fruit smoothie places and also my own.

This one is:
image

– 8oz of water/coconut water/coconut milk

– handful of kale

– A scoop of Alive pea protein

– Mango slices

– Half an orange

– A banana

Blend it, add some splenda if you wish and enjoy!

 

This one has:

– 8oz of water/coconut water/coconut milk

– A scoop of Alive pea protein

– A handful of blueberries

– Some pineapple slices

– A banana

– A handful of dates

Blend it, add some splenda if you wish and enjoy!

 

You can create any mix of fruits and vegetables for your smoothies. I have found that dates will naturally sweeten the smoothie and banana will cover up some of the after taste of the protein shake.

Here are some ideas: Bananas, apples, strawberries, spinach, dates, kale, blueberries, blackberries, oranges, mangos, etc…The possibilities are endless!

Breaded Coconut Shrimp, Kimchi, and Sweet Potato

Yes! You read right! Coconut shrimp. Totally vegan and totally delicious. A brand called Sophie’s Kitchen specializes in making vegan “sea food”. They have shrimp, fish filets, breaded shrimp and all sorts of other yummy food.

To make the shrimp, follow the recipe in the back of the carton. It’s very easy, just pan fry the shrimp in olive oil.

Kimchi is Korean marinaded Cabbage. It’s very good and a little spicy. You can pair this up with tofu or shrimp or any other protein.

The sweet potato I made in the microwave on “baked potato setting”. I added vegan butter and some brown sugar.

I hope you enjoy!

Hot Dog Night!

We had a hot dog night! Bet you didn’t think you could enjoy hot dogs as a vegan huh!?

I like to buy Smart Dogs – fully vegan and you won’t even know it!

Boil the hot dogs – Boil water and place the hotdogs in the water for 2-3 minutes, then take them out.

You can buy whatever type of bread you want and whatever toppings you want!

You can have vegan chili, hummus, ketchup, mustard, vegan mayo, tomatoes, crunchy chips, onions, jams, anything you want!

Homemade General Tso Tofu & Spring Rolls

Tonight we made a full chinese dinner!

Serves 2

Turn on the oven and follow the instruction for the type of spring rolls you bought. Any brand will do fine as long they’re SPRING rolls and not egg rolls. Big difference.

I started with cubed firm tofu, Simply Asia General Tso stir fry sauce, broccoli, and frozen spring rolls.

In a medium pan with some oil put the tofu to cook. After a few minutes add the General Tso sauce and let it cook.

Let it simmer until the tofu is cooked and add the broccoli to cook on top of the tofu.

You can make some white rice to go along with it. It was delicious! 

Enjoy!
