Sounds lovely, Holly! What do you use for the "B"? (Edit: never mind. I see that you listed the ingredients!)

Getting back on track slowly. Made a big salad with garbanzos last night and had a Lightlife hot dog.

It is a beautiful day in The Burg and I am working from home so I can actually spend a little more time making breakfast than I usually do during the week. I think I'm going to go smoothie bowl this morning. Coconut milk, frozen banana, mango, spinach, and spirulina as a base, with blackberries, chopped almonds, and hemp seed. Lunch is going to be a BLT on sprouted grain bread with Sweet Earth Benevolent bac'n and I have a nice fresh tray of alfalfa sprouts to add to that. (I do love my sprouter.) Not sure what I'm going to do for dinner yet. Maybe gallo pinto and a small green salad.

I feel you, Oolala. On the other hand, I have been overeating so much during these snowed-in days that I absolutely refuse to post what I "et." :O

I will say that I made the most glorious veggie-pinto bean soup the other day. Filling, sticks to my ribs and feels really satisfying (especially if I blend it). :)

I'm trying to do the Vitamineral Green thing in the mornings for extra nutrients and energy (and iron!) I mix it with water and just a couple of ounces of apple juice. Could be placebo effect, but I do feel like I'm a little more energetic after I drink it.

It's probably not polite for me to say it, but those meals sound incredibly light! I think I'd be darn hungry. Of course, I don't know everything that's in them, and you are a grownup and can choose for yourself!

Had a weird day because 1) my maid was coming earlier than I thought and I wanted to get the fridge in better shape so I had quite a hodge podge for breakfast; 2) I took a friend to a rather involved doctor appointment that she asked me to sit in on. She was disappointed that she was not able to see another specialist until March, when lo and behold. there was an opening right after lunch time.We hurried out and I had a much lighter (and faster) lunch than I would have, though I was glad to find the restaurant where I could basically get pretty simple beans and rice with green sauce over lettuce. Got an apple and sunflower seeds to round it out at a nearby market.

Dinner was the end of the Indian blackeyed peas, some whole oats, and spaghetti sauce.

Made similar brkfast, this time with polenta and cauliflower, plus kalamata olives for a kick. Also some flaxseed meal.

Lunch will be boiling potatoes, acorn squash, salad, and grapes.

Since I haven't been very hungry in the evening, I will have a makeshift "dessert" long after lunch, with ryeberries, walnuts, and a bit of dark chocolate. I ended up making a version of it yesterday because of a time crunch, and it was good!

Made a weird-to-some breakfast but I liked it! Soaked chia seeds overnight in flaxmilk, then heated with cooked eggplant and used my new-to-me immersion blender while heating. Added zaatar, a little yeast powder, and salt. Left some of the eggplant in chunks. Also added some pickled red pepper-left unblended-and MCT oil. I like having an option instead of grains sometimes.

Lunch will be lettuce and carrot salad, plus brown rice with cacao powder, and a mix of cooked cranberries (from fresh) and tangerines.

Dinner will be the end, I think, of Indian spiced brown rice plus kale, and an apple. Have not decided on protein, maybe pea powder.

Will have only brunch and dinner. Again, glorious leftovers! The end of Sri Lankan cabbage curry and spiced brown rice plus butter chicken spice sauce (with coconut oil) on tofu. Blackeyed peas for dinner. Various veggies, including avocado and acorn squash spread out. Too detailed to post.

Breakfast was just some strawberries, a banana, and coffee. Later I snacked a bit on cucumber slices and hummus. Lunch is a bowl of brown rice with mushrooms, edamame, bok choy, jalapenos, and Tofurky Thai basil chik'n. Dinner is still a big question mark.

Breakfast today: Coffee, oatmeal with chia, flax and nutritional yeast

Lunch will be leftovers from last night: black bean chili, spinach, spaghetti squash.

For dinner I'm planning to make some vegan ruebens! The corned beef is replaced by seitan. I looove sauerkraut.


You're right hollystormcloud - for most people dietary cholesterol is not a problem, but for those who are genetically predisposed to have issues it's best avoided. I knew eggs had lots of cholesterol, but was surprised (for some reason... duh?) that "lean meats" such as chicken breast still had so much. This vegan journey has been very informative thus far.

It is my understanding that dietary cholesterol has little to no link to blood cholesterol in most people, and it's the "most people" part that is important here. When my cholesterol first went up a few years back my strategy was to stop eating eggs and I did and it went right back down. That was the only change that I had made. Stupidly, I started eating eggs again and it went right back up. Based on my experience I have to assume that I do not fall into the "most people" category.

Breakfast is strawberries, the biggest tangelo I've ever seen, and a banana. For lunch I have some homemade pasta salad with sundried tomatoes, broccoli, etc. Dinner shall be more chik'n soup.

I thought it's been shown there is no correlation between dietary cholesterol and blood content. But I hope your strategies have paid off.

Had yummy leftover Indian brown rice for breakfast, leftover Indian blackeyed peas plus leftover Sri Lankan cabbage curry for lunch. Some raw veggies at both. Set to have cooked ryeberries, carrots, eggplant, grapes, some pea protein powder (to keep the balance right) and walnuts for dinner. I'm eating more than I was on my temporary plan, but not up to maintenance yet. I actually ate only half my lunch for various reason and am not especially hungry, but older people's appetite does not always match their needs, so I'm gong to eat the full dinner. plus the lunch leftovers. The plan I used depends on refeeding for some of its benefits. I don't usually even use the counter but I will for the next few days at least to get an idea of how to achieve a macronutrient balance I'm trying out.

Holly, I have to say it is amusing that you talk about the temperatures you do. I live in San Diego where we are sometimes hated for our mild weather. I agree that the 60's feel cool, but I have so many friends or relatives for whom daytime 60's means spring! Short sleeves and short pants! It's all relative.

For breakfast and lunch I will be having absolutely nothing! I have a Dr.s appt. today and it's a new doctor (since my last one up and closed shop a year ago giving no notice) and he's going to want to run cholesterol so I gotta fast. I'll be interested to see the results since my last cholesterol test was over a year ago and I was still eating eggs and cheese at that time and my numbers were high. For dinner I'm making a nice big pot of chik'n noodle soup using Quorn chik'n pieces. It's only in the 60s here today and nice hot soup is perfect for the day!

Yesterday I had coffee for breakfast. Lunch and dinner were the same ~~ olive tapenade with veggies and crackers.

I seem to get into these cycles of eating the same thing over and over. I don't mind until I want something different and then I end up in another cycle. This can be a good thing when I make a ton of one thing.

I start my day with coffee and Silk creamer, a vegan protein drink and lots of water with lemon. By midday, I’ll have a multi-grain cereal and soy milk or cream of wheat, with a fruit. I don’t mind eating the same thing, and it makes tracking meals easier when I’m in the weight loss phase (which I am ... again).

Breakfast was Chex and a sprinkle of Grapenuts and almond milk and a banana. Usually I have oatmeal but was feeling lazy.

Lunch leftover lentil loaf, mashed potatoes, and the gravy I listed in recipes. Also succotash.

Dinner will be chili, WFPB of course.

Snack will be a rather expensive apricot. All the way from South America, but I rarely see them.

I didn't sleep at all last night so I had breakfast at 3am. It was a crispy potato taco with homemade pica de gallo and a small amount of Violife "cheddar". I may be eating like a hobbit today and having second breakfast shortly, but it will just be some fruit and berries. Lunch will be garden veggie tofu salad on Ezekiel sprouted grain bread and dinner will have to be salad.

I have been feeling snobby about how much this little town has been influenced by middle-class American tastes, middle-class people who are living much larger than they could in the United States, avoiding a lot of what I considered tourist fare, but I am very glad on this last day that I was able to score a salad with falafel. There was an option for a traditional tahini dressing or a vegan Cesar, which was quite amazing and recommended. I did take the Cesar but I find myself thinking about that tahini too!.That’s probably all I will have between now and getting home besides some coffee and a cookie on the plane. I do not like the idea that I might not be able to travel well anymore, but I will be so glad to get back to my kitchen! One night, I did not order any food because they were out of the few dishes I would have opted for. I was not actually that hungry, having done some stress eating earlier, but I felt wounded about it on the inside! However, had a lovely time with my companions.

Breakfast was some spiced pintos and coffee today. I'm working from home today so I didn't pre-prepare any lunch. I'm leaning towards a nice big salad with loads of veggies, chickpeas, and some Good Catch plant-based "tuna". I'll have to sort out dinner later.

In small town in Mexico. Brunch was leftovers from yesterday. Steamed veggies with fried tofu, rice, some kind of vinegar sauce, and half a banana. Oh, half of a little flour tortilla.

Will be eating out again, so don’t know what will be in next meal. May have some kind of snack bar (I have a few with me, though I would prefer to go without) and a coffee somewhere midway through. emoticon

Today breakfast was a small banana, some grapes, and Mexican tofu scramble.

Lunch is lentil soup and steamed cauliflower (no oil, no Earth Balance, no salt).

Dinner is going to be a falafel wrap with lots of veggies and a small amount of Greek dressing.

Starting with coffee. Cooking some potatoes now to have them gone before I leave for a trip on Tuesday. Working on leftover peanut dal, kichuri (sp?), rice, marinara, and chard/cabbage salad, too.

Breakfast was oatmeal with ground flaxseed and a few walnuts. Almond milk . Oh and I sweetened the oatmeal with a bit of maple syrup. Lunch was leftover thanksgiving and I’m thankful it’s gone. I will be away most of the afternoon so dinner will be late, small and quick.

I did the bad for breakfast this morning and had some Daiya pizza so I'll have to do better the rest of the day. I have some nice broccolini to saute for lunch with a small salad. Not sure about dinner yet.

Breakfast was a slice of Ezekiel sprouted grain bread with some chickpea salad spread. I made a beautiful salad for lunch with romaine, kale, scallions, radishes, purple carrots, grape tomatoes, and chickpeas. Dinner is still up in the air.

Breakfast, oatmeal with ground flaxseed and walnuts. Almond milk.
Lunch was vegan shepherds pie.
Snack smoothie made with Swiss chard (I know weird), almond milk, frozen blueberries and banana and a bit of pea protein.
Dinner will probably just be a veggie filled pita. I love those pickled banana peppers.

Hi Group. This morning I had a hard boiled egg. Two cups of coffee. 1.5 cups almond milk with a scoop of plant based performance plus. I’m looking at the oatmeal that soaks over night. Do I add the ground flax seed in the evening or right before I eat it?

Logging all my food today and working out 90 mins. Have a healthy day.

I've been trying to do more oatmeal for breakfast, but I've never been a big fan. It's not the taste for me, it's the texture. If I put a lot of nuts, seeds and dried fruit in I can usually manage it. The texture is just too much like wallpaper paste!

This morrning I have two tangerines, some raspberries, and a mango.
I'm meeting my brother for lunch at Tijuana Flats so it's going to be a black bean no-ritto bowl, hold the dairy. Dinner is likely to be salad. Gotta get my greens in!

Do you soak it first? It doesn't sound weird to me! I bought Whole Foods Muesli and my husband and I like it, but I am going to try putting the almond milk in a little ahead of time to soften it.

Oh, I guess the steel cut oats are cooked. Duh me.

Steel cut oats apple and walnuts breakfast.
Stir fried Asian rice, veggies, and tempeh cubes in peanut sauce lunch.
Dinner at Vietnamese restaurant, noodle bowl.

Had a couple of clunkers with recipes I tried and got a bit discouraged. Oh well. Gonna happen. Back to some tried and true recipes and some veggie meatballs and burgers. Familiar and not too exotic.

No A/C this morning so it was cold shredded wheat with almond milk and blueberries.
A/C fixed and lunch was leftover vegetable soup made with homemade broth and Lots of good stuff. It’s yummy but not very filling so I had a pita smeared with peanut butter.
Dinner will be pizza. Making it with a cauliflower crust I bought. Maybe a salad.

Holly I’ll have to look into lo mein.

I made the Spicy White Bean Pitas from the McDougall Quick and Easy Cookbook. I halved the recipe since it's only me eating them. I'm having one at lunch and one at dinner.

It's sauteed onion, cannellini beans, Rotel tomatoes and chilis (I used no salt added), corn, tomato paste, chili powder, and whole wheat pitas. You can top them with chopped scallions and alfalfa sprouts but I didn't do that.

Turned out really good! It was too wet to stuff in pitas successfully though, I ended up eating the second half with a knife and fork. This evening I will just put the pita on the plate and top it with the stuffing ingredients.

Will definitely be making these again! emoticon

That looks like a nice healthy lunch, Sharon.

50ISHVEGANMOM, your oats sound interesting with the chai. I'd love to hear how it turned out.

Breakfast today was strawberries, blueberries, a tangerine, and a Thai banana.
I worked a 12 hour day yesterday and didn't have time to prep a lunch for today so I stopped at WaWa and got a garden salad.
I have a couple of nice zucchini, a yellow squash, and two golden beets so I'm thinking I'm going to spiralize tonight. Add some vegan pesto, sundried tomatoes, and kalamata olives or marinated artichokes.....om, nom, nom!

Brunch was purple and red potato, young broccoli stems, spring onion, sundreid tomato (in olive oil), black grapes, decaf mocha with a fair amount of almond milk. Had some samples at Costco a few hours later.

The plan for now for dinner will be peruano beans, kale, carrot, some kind of grain or maybe buckwheat. Probably add some coconut oil. Maybe apple and walnuts, unless nectarine is ready.

I know there are probably a lot of times I SHOULD have slept instead of eating...

Some overlap here from a meal yesterday: spring mix, beets and tomato again but with garbanzos and some commercial Indian vegetable balls that were pretty simple and not fried. Might have some pistachios and grapes.

Brunch was spring mix, raw beets, tomato, cooked green beans, a few squash blossoms (I finally accepted that most of them would not turn into winter squash after I saw countless ones die on the vine), leftover rice from [birthday] dinner out, and goddess dressing with added olive oil. Oh, banana and a few walnuts. Sorta decaf latte.

OOLALA, that sounds really good. There is an Ethiopian vendor at our local farmer's market that makes some fabulous noms!

For breakfast I'm having more chickpea salad/spread, but on marbled rye this time. I also have a ripe avocado I might slice up on that. I'm supposed to meet my brother for lunch today, but he hasn't picked a spot yet so I have no idea what I'll be having. For dinner I'm thinking Korean-inspired tofu tacos.

Today brunch (appetite changes in my senior years has me aiming at brunch, a small optional snack and full dinner) was mainly leftover Ethiopian injera (teff spongy flat bread) with a medley of broccoli, beets, red and orange peppers, capers, and sundried tomatoes in olive oil. Also a few walnuts, an apple, and decaf mocha.

I need to scroll through here more often, these meals sound great!
My breakfast was 1/4 avocado smashed on rye toast topped with arugula & alfalfa sprouts, and soy milk.
Lunch is going to be sautéed veggies (onion, kale, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic) toasted on an open-face piece of ciabatta bread.
Dinner will be stir-fry veggies with tofu over brown rice/grains mix.

Breakfast is some homemade chickpea salad on sprouted grain bread and coffee.
Lunch is going to be a fabulous salad I made yesterday with spiralized zucchini, yellow squash, and radishes, shredded purple cabbage and sweet bok choy, thinly sliced purple onion and grape tomatoes with sweet Asian citrus dressing.....om, nom, nom!
The dinner plan is southern collard green and potato stew.

Breakfast was just coffee. I had to hit the ground running at work today.
Lunch is just what I grabbed out of the fruit basket: a tangelo, an apple, two Thai bananas, and an avocado. I have some hummus in my mini fridge too.
Haven't had time to even think about dinner yet.

That Gardein fishless fish is in my top five for best vegan meat analogs. Did you freak out the first time you tried it because it was so close to the real thing?

Breakfast this morning is more of my rice and beans mixture. I have homemade minestrone for lunch and dinner is still in the planning stages. I have sweet potatoes, acorn squash, butternut squash, poblano and Anaheim chiles.....maybe some kind of roasted veggie thing.

Ohhh - Baja fish tacos with Gardein fish and homemade slaw and tartar. Gotta have that soon!

I had Kashi Go Lean Berry Crisp cereal with a TBS of hemp seeds and a TBS of ground flax - and three, small, Italian plums. Feeling full long after. :)

Breakfast/Lunch was a favorite ~~ chopped apples with chia seeds, raw cinnamon oatmeal packet, raw steel cut oats, and raw chopped nuts. Normally I use a variety of fresh fruit, but I didn't have any.

Breakfast today is going to be an experiment. I saw a video someone posted on Pinterest a while back where someone used a George Foreman grill to make a hash brown " omelette", so I'm going to give that a try this morning. Found a barely use Foreman grill at the thrift store recently and I'm all loaded up with fresh organic veggies and some Violife shreds to put in it. That is as far as I've gotten with today's meal planning.

Breakfast was a banana and a ton of coffee.
Lunch is Trader Joe's new Bahn Mi Inspired Noodle Bowl. The dressing is NOT vegan so I'm tossing that and just hitting it with Sriracha. Fortunately it's separate, but I should have paid more attention when I grabbed it.
Dinner is going to be lazy food, probably a Sweet Earth Benevolent "Bacon", lettuce and tomato sandwich with Veganaise. That's what I'm feeling right now anyway.

Pasta Salad

I used macaroni made from vegetables, therefore, gluten free.

Cook the macaroni, I cooked the whole box and it makes a LOT.

I put in 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow sweet onion
1 whole chopped orange bell pepper
half a carton of cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 cup black olives cut in half
1 jar of marinated artichokes chopped finely
1/4 cup (or more) of vegan mayonnaise

Mix well, chill and serve

Iftar dinner was really lovely. There were keynote speakers from the Islamic community sharing wisdom and lessons from the Koran. Compassion was a big theme for the night. One of the speakers was a woman who was working in NY near the trade towers when they were hit. She spoke of a young man who showed her compassion and escorted her through the streets and home after it happened, to keep her safe from people who might have been angry and looking for someplace to focus their anger. She considered briefly that she might be safer if she took off her hijab and he told her she didn't need to if she didn't want to, that he would walk with her no matter what. There were leaders from many religions present, fostering respect and understanding across all religions and cultures. It was a really nice event.

Breakfast today was coffee and toast.
Lunch was leftover gumbo over basmati.
Dinner was eggless egg salad and tomato on wheat.

Hurray for attending community Iftars! I missed mine this year. I'm so glad you're attending and can't wait to hear about it.

Breakfast: sauteed mushrooms, a couple of chunks of leftover steamed potatoes and Just Egg.
Lunch: I'm not gonna lie, I had a meeting so grabbed a vegan apricot lemon scone and a latte.
Dinner: I made a gigantic lentil stew/soup with potatoes, carrots, broccoli, onion, celery and a turnip. Oh - and I added a couple of Beyond Sausage. It's yummy and I wish I could share it with you all. :)
