I've been thinking a lot lately about how people have this idea that veganism is super hard and expensive. This irritates me. First off- cause thats just isn't true. However, I will say if you live in a certain area that doesn't have much going on in the grocery store with options, then I do get it. I don't think it'd be as easy to be vegan if I still lived back home in my small town. It was hard to find tofu at the grocery store when I last visited. BUT that being said, there is a grocery store about 30 minutes from there that does have everything. I understand you have to go out of your way to make things work- but thats just it. There is a way around everything. And no, it's not always the easy way. Ahem- any who. This is what I have been eating for lunch for the past few days. I don't get sick of it that much- since I LOVE it. :) But I do switch it up occasionally. Don't get me wrong.
This bowl consists of very plain and simple things that are all cheap and easy to prepare and quick BY the way.
THE DAILY KALE'S QUINOA LOVE BOWL
- Quinoa or Brown Rice (Which you can have already prepped -on your day off)
- Black Beans (Organic with no added Salt- you can find these at Whole Foods )
- Red cabbage (Already shredded in a container in the fridge)
- Cashew Cheeze (Already prepped)
Toss all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!
So eassssssy! You must try it. It's so good. By the way this is before I added a bunch of Cholula sauce ;) I love that sauce! And I love spicy. You can add any veggies to this bowl, to make it the way you like best. Have fun with it! Buy all the veggies you can find at your grocery store and make it a point to use them all in everything you make. Thats why I love being vegan. I feel I have more fun with recipes cause I can be more creative. Not to mention the beautiful colors of natural living vibrant fruits and veggies.
Have a great Friday!
