I like to keep it pretty simple. It's best to do- when trying to stay plant based. I always make sure I have a GREEN, a PROTEIN and a COMPLEX CARB for lunch. My breakfast is typically always oatmeal. My grandma used to tell me I could turn into a piece of chicken, cause I ate so much of it. NOW it's the opposite case. I'd turn into a bowl of oatmeal, for sure. Haha. I seriously have it every morning. 1/4 cup rolled oats with 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk. Cook it. Then usually add chia seeds and 1 tbsp of nut butter. And thats about it! I do different flavor variations sometimes, depending on what we have. But still. Oatmeal is pretty much my daily. Besides kale of course ;)
So for The Daily Kale today. I made a very nice refreshing bowl. Oh and this hot sauce. SOOOO GOOD. If you know me, you know I l o v e spice. Like overly love it. This already is spicy- then I add hot sauce. Lol. Oh well.
1/4 cup quinoa
1/4 cup lentils
Lottttts of Kale (steamed for about 15 secs)
Topped with carrots & purple cabbage
and 2 tbsp of fresh cashew cheeze I just made today.
- After deciding to take the Engine 2 Challenge, I have to go down on nut intake. Totally cool. I can do it. No problemo! So I'm keeping it at (3 tbsp) basically. Of any nuts. Cashews, almonds, etc. So I've had my share for today. Lunch was worth it.
So last night was not -engine 2 approved. So disregard if you are following the challenge. Had an intentional slip up, in order to go out to eat. Theres really no getting around added oils and nuts when you go out to eat at a restaurant. Thats why I very much like to keep it at home. But once a week, we usually go out and have fun and eat dinner somewhere awesome. Basically always vegan spots. I love them. It's just so creative and pretty colors. I love veggies. I love seeing what can be created. I'm so excited for next week when we go on our early Valentine's Day date- since we both work on V Day. Were going to a vegan sushi restaurant, that my mom gave me a gift card for Christmas. So excited to finally use it and try their food. AYE YA YA!
So here are the pics of last nights awesome food. Very creative and tasty- and soooo feeling. This was my lunch/dinner. Thats how filling. Craziness. This place is called SunCafe if your ever in LA and want to try awesome RAW vegan food!
