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.

* I came up with this recipe a few days ago and I haven’t tested it on anyone else. I had it for lunch today and it came better than I expected. To be honest, I was kind of worried that it might taste terrible but I like how it came out. I hope my kids love it for dinner because I am not planning on cooking a second meal today.
