Spring break was MUCH needed! I had all of last week off, and tomorrow as well. GREAT food with the extra time to cook (and fresh fruits, veggies and herbs with warmer weather!) pictured: falafel (from scratch!), home-cooked breakfasts, and guacamole from scratch! Not pictured- tilapia marinated in Dijon mustard, lemon/lime juice and cilantro. :)
I also made a fort from a sheet and have read incredible amounts of Feast for Crows under said fort. :)
Super Bowl food! Homemade (vegetarian) chilli over homemade French fries. :) potatoes currently marinating in olive oil, sea salt, rosemary, garlic, onions & pepper.
Chilli has soy “beef”, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, onions.
Beverage would be a frozen mudslide—just add ice & blend! Soooo good.
(Also I live in Baltimore…so go ravens!)
Being a lactose intolerant vegetarian, I get asked frequently, “what do you eat?” Tons of things! Becoming vegetarian has forced me to make more healthy choices about my eating and it makes me feel awesome! I don’t eat McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, etc anymore— and I’m eating more organically (though not always!) My body feels WORLDS better!
Here’s what one of my lunches looks like that I bring to school/camp for teaching:
A wrap (lettuce, tomato, avocado, salt, pepper, and dressing. Avocado gives a ton of flavor!)
A granola bar (I like chewy bars.)
Pretzel crisps (these one are buffalo flavored!) Often I’ll bring hummus with pretzels or carrots.
I try to get many different tastes in my lunch so I can snack on different things throughout the day. I also have a liter bottle of water that I drink every day. I almost exclusively drink water, and then lactaid milk or orange juice for calcium.
Foods from other cultures are the easiest to make vegetarian/many already are! Indian, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Israeli…
I don’t use a cookbook when making food, but I’m going to get one just for ideas of new things to try. What are your favorite vegetarian/dairy-free snacks/meals?
