I’ve been trying real hard to stick with my “cheegan”/vegan lifestyle. Breakfast is usually four fruits like banana, apple, strawberries and a pear. Other times it’s a fruit smoothie or oat bran with fruit.
For lunch I usually have a salad of some sort. This one is Romaine lettuce, broccoli, carrots, edamame, onions, cucumbers, quinoa and beets. I drizzle it with a little rice vinegar.
Dinner for me is some kind of cooked vegetables or pasta dish. I tried out a recipe I found recently.
This is butternut squash, potatoes, onions and apples. Yummy!
Yes, it is challenging eating differently than Jim. Most times we cook our own meals and eat together. When Jim is grilling a steak, he will grill a portabella mushroom or eggplant for me. Jim continues to be very supportive of my lifestyle change and we’re making it work.
My biggest challenge is keeping enough vegetables on hand when we only go grocery shopping every two weeks. See, Pleasanton is 40 miles away and with diesel fuel being so expensive, we limit our trips to town. After the first week I’ve used up all the tomatoes, spinach, cucumbers, broccoli and fresh fruits; it’s then I start using the butternut and acorn squash and the frozen vegetables and frozen fruits the second week. It’s working out.
Please share any of your favorite vegetable dishes or soups. I’m always looking for new dishes to try.
