My favorite homemade meat substitute – Day 11 of 31

As I previously said, I don't like textured vegetable protein as a meat substitute.  The only one I enjoy is the Ground "Beefless" Beef from Trader Joes. Sometimes I want to make one without any weird ingredients.  So I found a way to have a meat substitute with only 2 ingredients. Mushrooms can have a… Continue reading My favorite homemade meat substitute – Day 11 of 31

Better than Restaurant Oven Home Fries – Day 7 of 31 (Sheet pan recipe)

While I was sick with my gallstones last year,  I had one food that did not bother my stomach.  Okay, it did bother me if it was greasy but if it was cooked with no oil or grease, I had little to no problems. Potatoes were my friend during those 4 months.  I would spiralize… Continue reading Better than Restaurant Oven Home Fries – Day 7 of 31 (Sheet pan recipe)

Sometimes You Need “Beef” Tacos – Day 6 of 31

I'm teaching my students how to write narratives so I've been doing a lot of model writing for them.  A good narrative has a hook that gets the reader to want to read your story.  This is a skill that I struggle with when I'm writing my blog posts. However it is important for a… Continue reading Sometimes You Need “Beef” Tacos – Day 6 of 31

It's not always easy eating a vegetarian diet.  The Standard American Diet is a meat based diet. Most restaurants have a variety of meat main dishes but little variety when it comes to vegetarian main dishes.  This can be infuriating.  Plus you never know if the dinners are truly vegetarian.  Sometimes they will use ingredients… Continue reading One frustration with eating vegetarian (Day 5 of 31)

Snack Boxes – The Hard Boiled Egg Version (Vegetarian Meal Prep) – Day 4 of 31

If I don't have a plan of what I am going to eat during the week, then I feel out of sync. There are some weeks that I know that all I'm going to be able to eat is snacky types of foods.  Foods that I can eat while working at my desk or even… Continue reading Snack Boxes – The Hard Boiled Egg Version (Vegetarian Meal Prep) – Day 4 of 31

My mom's first cousin, their mother, lives in the Phoenix area.  She comes into town more often than her children.  She was planning to visit the… Continue reading Greek Pasta Salad (Meal Prep) – Day 3 of 31
