Dinner: Potato Leek Soup

Dinner: Potato leek soup with a bean salad. The soup recipe is from Vegan Family Cookbook. The bean salad was store-bought.

Lunch: Nori Roll and Salad

Lunch: Nori roll and large salad. The nori roll is filled with avocado, cucumber, lettuce, and tomatoes. The salad has lettuce, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, pine nuts, seaweed flakes, and bell pepper.

Breakfast: Pancakes

Breakfast: pancakes and blackberries. My husband made these from a recipe he found online. I forget where it was, but I found these options:

Or, of course, you can do what I always used to do: Buy a pancake mix that doesn't have eggs or dairy in it and then instead of adding eggs or dairy, add soymilk and NRG egg replacer.

Dinner: Succotash

Succotash with fried cornbread. We added peas to the succotash recipe we used from Ethnic Vegetarian*. And we used vegan margarine instead of butter. Succotash is incredibly easy to prepare. And it's also pretty low in calories (unless you eat it with cornbread).

*I was vegetarian before I went vegan so I have a lot of vegetarian cookbooks. I still use them and just adapt the recipes to make them vegan.

Lunch: Pea Soup

Lunch: Pea Soup and flatbread. The bread was store-bought and the soup was homemade. Dried peas cook up pretty quickly and make a tasty soup for lunch or dinner.

Breakfast: Fruit Plate

Breakfast in bed: I had a fruit plate and water for breakfast. I ate it in bed with one of my cats curled up beside me.

Week's End

Well, I didn't get the last photo because I didn't really eat a dinner. I was on a plane headed back home. I ate some nuts and ginger ale.

So, that concludes my week's worth of food. Shown above is a collage of all the photos.

It was good for me. I hope it was good for you :)
