Meatless Dinner

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.

Yesterday’s smoothie was simple and delicious. I wanted something that is yummy and easy to prepare. I didn’t have any strawberries so I decided to use the last mango in the fruit bowl since I knew the kids were going to fight over who gets the last mango.
I cut up the mango and then a medium banana plus a red plum. My oldest asked for plums and as usual she doesn’t eat them all. I like plums but only when they are paired with something else. So I figured taking one of her plums wouldn’t be a bad idea. I placed the fruit in the freezer before starting on dinner. The kids voted on tacos and I modified the menu and changed the meat because I really hate red meat. I suggested we substitute the ground meat with Tilapia and they agreed. I made dinner and then went for a short run while they worked on their homework.
My run was shorter than I planned, my right leg forced me to turn around after only 1 mile. I might have to see my doctor about the pain because my ankle brace is no longer helpful and I can’t train if the pain is only going to get worse.
Fast forward to about 30 minutes later to our family dinner and it was a hit. Fish tacos without sour cream and with carrots, Romaine lettuce, baby cucumbers, mild salsa, Tilapia and sweet corn inside soft whole wheat shells and the kids asked for seconds and thirds. I didn’t expect them to like it at all. My kids are picky eaters and so this was great.
I had my smoothie instead of the tacos because my stomach was upset and I didn’t want to eat anything heavy. I am still feeling sick so I will definitely be calling my doctor in the morning. I have been nursing cold and flu like symptoms for several months and nothing seems to be working. I keep thinking that it might be stress but I removed the major stress factor I had and still I can’t catch a break so it’s time to do more.

Well, I better get back to my school work. My munchkins are fast asleep and I have a midterm this week. Thank you for stopping by and below you will find the complete recipe for my smoothie and a picture of it.
