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.

Directions

1. Preheat over to 375 degrees (F). Sift flour, salt and baking powder and set aside.
2. With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until it becomes foamy, then gradually add the 3 tablespoons of sugar, beat until stiff peaks form.
3. Add the milk and egg yolk into the flour mixture and beat it until it becomes a smooth mixture. Used a spatula to scrape to gently fold the batter and lemon juice into the egg whites.

4. Slowly heat a 10 inch buttered skillet. Pour batter into skillet, spread it out evenly.
5. Combine the 1/4 cup of sugar with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and set aside.
6. Arrange the apple slices in a pattern over the batter and then sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mixture over the sliced apples.
7. Bake for 10 minutes or until the top is glazed.

*This dish is best served when it is warm and this recipes yields 4 servings. I saved some of it for my munchkins and we shared it for dessert this evening and they all loved it.
