Vegetarian sandwiches

Wednesday April 23, 2014
I have a theory that even the most grown up among us love indulging in versions of our favorite childhood comfort foods from time to time. Like grilled cheese? Try this apple cheddar panini for grown ups, or, make your childhood grilled cheese even better by adding vegetarian bacon (pictured). Yes, that's right.

When it comes to vegetarian sandwiches, the possibilities are endless! Try making sandwiches from your favorite vegetarian meat substitutes, use healthy vegetarian spreads such as hummus, or explore different nut butters such as cashew nut butter.

Here's a few of my favorite vegetarian sandwiches to try.

Tofu for breakfast

Tuesday April 22, 2014
Besides the obvious tofu scramble, there is indeed, plenty of ways to get a healthy soy protein boost in before lunch. Try one of these quiches, smoothies and even pancakes, each of which uses tofu.

Putting vegetables center stage

Sunday April 20, 2014
Or rather, center plate! We all could use more vegetables in our lives, including me. Whole grains are great, and I love pasta just as much as the next person (if not more!), but the bottom of the food pyramid really should be filled with fresh healthy vegetables. Here's a few recipes which put vegetables at the center of your plate:
  • Broccoli in sweet garlic sauce (pictured)
  • Yellow Thai curry with mixed vegetables
  • Indian broccoli and potato curry recipe
  • Vegetable tacos with zucchini
  • Simple mixed veggie stir-fry
