Meatless Dinner

12030461_10153680899298787_6936717781906890235_o

So my doctor and I had a very detailed conversation about my health. He made some great points about things that I need to change about my diet. I thought that I was making healthier choices already but my current health situation beg to differ.
I looked a my diet and made some much adjustments. Adjust number one has the family and I eating meat once a week.

We usually have picnics on Friday nights and that usually involves me bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes with a variety of fruit and hot chocolate. I decided to turn things around last night. I made an entirely meatless dinner and everyone loved it.

Tofu sticks

Extra firm Tofu (Organic)
black pepper
accent
season salt
1/2 cup of vegetable

I fried the sticks and used them in place of bacon and sausage and it was awesome.

Pancakes
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup applesauce
2 medium bananas (very soft)
Baking powder
baking soda
1/2 cup of Almond milk
**the measurements might be off because I don’t always measure when I’m cooking but the pancakes came out fluffy and tasty even without me adding any sugar and eggs.

Hash Potatoes

6 Yukon potatoes
black pepper
season salt
accent
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil

This also came out really well, I even got the picky diva to eat almost all of her dinner.

Smoothie

1 Banana
1 Mango
1 cup of Blueberries
1/2 cup of Blackberries
2 cups of cubed Pineapples
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of Almond milk
1 cup of Strawberries

I didn’t add any sweetener to this smoothie because I didn’t think it was necessary. It was slightly tart but I like it. The diva and I battled over her drinking the smoothie but she did.

I added green grapes to the mix and dinner was complete. Everyone had seconds, they ate the fried Tofu and never complained about it. I don’t think everyone knew that they were eating Tofu so I am just going to leave that alone.

I will be looking for more meatless, egg-less, dairy-free and gluten free meal ideas.

Awesome Mom of the Week: Amy Robach

Amy Robach is one of my favorite tv personalities. She has a wonderful outlook on life.She somehow balances work, family and fought cancer with style. She is advocate for staying physically active. She talks with pride every time she talks about her children. I was so heartbroken when I heard the news about her cancer diagnoses.

It is breast cancer awareness month and I wanted to take some time to acknowledge how brave and strong she was during her struggle. I think all women should look at her as a brave example of what strong, beautiful and determine looks like.

Back to School snacks…What are your Favorites?

http://www.foodinsight.org/backpack#sthash.Gh380fmy.dpbs

So I received this link about back to school snacks and it is so good that I had no choice but share it with you all. My kids really love it when I make baked snacks for them. We also love to take carrots, raisins, and certain fruits like apples, cuties and cheese sticks. Th best part for me is that they don’t realize that I’m trying to teach them to be healthy eaters.

With that said…What are your kids favorite snacks?

Thanks again for stopping by 🙂
