Eggplant Dinner

Hello Everyone! I know I have been MIA lately. But here is an awesome recipe I made today. SO YUMMY!

What you’ll need (if you can get everything organic, even better):

1 eggplant

1 cucumber

2 carrots

1 1/5 cups of your favorite tomato pasta sauce (I like a mushroom sauce)

1 cup Daiya cheese shreds (I used cheddar style)

Salt and pepper to taste

A little bit of Coconut oil (or olive oil)

Steps:

Pre-heat over at 425 degrees

1. Slice the eggplant and sauté the eggplant in the coconut oil until the eggplant cooks a little bit

2. Chop the carrot and cucumber

3. In a small baking pan, add the sauteed eggplant, carrot, and cucumber. Mix in the sauce and add the cheese on top.

4. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20-25 minutes

5. Enjoy! Makes about 4 portions.

Since I’m logging all my food I can tell you the nutritional facts…you’ll be amazed at how many calories in each serving….

1 serving has 179 calories!! (Might fluctuate based on the tomato sauce you used)

I had a 1/2 cup spinach with a bit of low cal dressing and 1/2 avocado.

ENJOY!!!

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.

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!

6 Reasons Why You Should Not Support In Vitro Meat!

Something to definitely think about…Even with this new technology animals will still suffer and we would look at animals as science experiments instead of non-human beings who are alive, feel pain, and feel sadness. It’s better than the current situation, but it’s not the ultimate answer.

Philosophy and Animal Rights

2In looking for an end to the pain and suffering of nonhuman animals in agriculture, In Vitro meat is often promoted as the most promising solution.  In fact, the “father of animal liberation” himself, Peter Singer, applauds the recent effort to produce In Vitro meat: “My own view is that being a vegetarian or vegan is not an end in itself, but a means towards reducing both human and animal suffering, and leaving a habitable planet to future generations. I haven’t eaten meat for 40 years, but if in vitro meat becomes commercially available, I will be pleased to try it” (Singer 2013).

So what is “In Vitro meat” exactly? In a nutshell, it is animal flesh that is grown through cloned and cultured cells/muscle tissue in a lab (Dr Mark Post from the University of Maastrichtis is identified as the “father of in vitro meat”). This seems…

Vegan Pancakes

Today I made vegan pancakes!

I followed the recipe in the back of the pancake mix…but I added a twist!

You’ll need:

1c of Pancake mix

1 tbs of flaxseed meal (It’ll be your egg replacement)

3/4c of coconut milk

1tbs of coconut oil

3 tbs of water

This will yield about 3-4 thin pancakes or 2 real thick ones

Start by mixing the flaxseed meal and the water – Let it sit for 2 minutes

While that’s sitting, mix everything else and then add the flaxseed

Beat it manually with a fork until it’s the right consistency

Put it on a pan at medium heat and let it cook, flipping it in order to cook both sides

Add syrup and enjoy!

Disclaimer: This is not going to taste like IHOP’s pancakes, be realistic! They will taste delicious though and how long has it been since you had chocolate chip pancakes anyway?

Enjoy!

Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup, Rice, and a Banana

Tonight I had the Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup with some white rice and a banana.

Amy’s Soups never disappoint me. The soups are always delicious and do not taste canned at all. They are seasoned with onions, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and other spices. The rice is instant made and the banana was just perfect.

Anyway, enjoy!
