Good morning, how's everybody feeling today? I'm sure some of you are still smiling about last night's football game, others are likely crying in their coffee cups. Me? I was in bed by 9 pm, didn't know (or cared) who won until Chip came to bed and reported the results.
In order to insert more structure and discipline into my routine, I'm going back to weekly menu planning. I will also be logging faithfully into my food journal. Both of these habits have been very helpful in the past so I need to stop being lazy and just do the stuff that works!
This week's menu features mainly recipes from PCRM's 21-Day Vegan Kickstart, which, if you read my other blog, you'll remember that I joined in last summer. If you're new to the plant-based way of eating, or simply need a bit more structure in your diet, I highly recommend this program. There are also a few from The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook by Dr. Neal Barnard and Robyn Webb. (I'm still crushing on Dr. B., by the way) *wink*
So, without further ado, below is the plan for this week. I've provided links to the recipes (when available) but will also be posting them along with pics and reviews.
- Curried Tomato Lentil Soup
- Black Bean and Corn Salad with Lime
- Brown Rice, Chickpea and Vegetable Soup
- Pretty Stuffed Peppers
- Tacos with Chipotle and Tomato Salsa
- Vegetable Paella
- Italian White Bean, Kale & Potato Stew
