    I was checking for protein grams in food. Found that chia seeds have 17 grams for 1 tsp. I'm going to incorporate more in my meals.

    Wow, really? How about hemp seeds? Love them.

    Um, no. 1 teaspoon of chia seeds only weighs 4 grams, so it’s not physically possible for it to contain 17 grams of anything. An entry I found says .8 g per tsp which seems more plausible. A tablespoon is 3 teaspoons so that can’t weigh 17 either.

    One ounce of chia seeds (which is about two tablespoons) has four grams of protein. So I would not count chia seeds as a great source of protein.

    Vegan Pulse Penne Pasta

    Ingredients: Pulse Penne Pasta (Aldi brand made of peas, chickpeas, borlotti beans, & lentil flour), pumpkin, edamame, tomato, red capsicum, chilli, vegan cheese probably made of plastic, spring onion, olive oil, salt.

    It took about 30 minutes to prepare, cook, and serve in the storage containers.

    Nuked the pumpkin and edamame.
    Boiled the pasta in a pan of water on the stove then drained it, put in everything else, then served in containers for freezing.
    Made it look traditional by adding the spring onion and plastic-looking bio cheese (I’d rather not think about the mental picture that name gives me).

    Approx 1300 kilojoules per serve.

    For lunch I made grilled chickpea sandwiches with a garlic-cashew spread, a quick cucumber pickle, romaine and tomato. Omg it was so very good. The chickpeas really made the sandwich hearty.

    Today so far!!
    Post weights smoothie;
    banana, mixed berries, soy milk, ground flax, hemp seeds

    Lunch;
    Linda McCartney “fish cake”, orzo, rocket, tenderstem broccoli and a touch of vegan mayo.

    Orzo; half an onion and garlic clove fried in water (I only use oil for roasting as I have a good pan), when soft add some finely diced mushroom. When that’s cooked add one serving of orzo (80g), then some veggie broth and a bit of alpro soya cream. Lid on and cook until soft (I kept adding water if it was boiling away too much). Added nutritional yeast and some vegan cashew cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper and done:)

    Snack; probably will be 2 meat free burger patties (the ones I have are super low calorie and high protein) and an alpro yoghurt

    Dinner; not sure yet maybe homemade ramen! And probably some chocolate to snack

    Sadly I've had little food today because of the flu. I've managed to eat one banana and two air fried hash browns with ketchup. I'm starving but everything sounds so gross - except for junk food of course. I'm gonna try to get the energy to make sesame tofu and broccoli over rice or noodles.

    I’ve been using forks over knives recipes recently! I attached one of my favorite lunch recipes, the green goddess bowl! It’s filling and really flavorful!

    Last night for New Year's Eve I made vegan nachos. They were so good.

    Today I am making a vegan lasagna with lots of veggies and a tofu-cashew ricotta. I haven't had a lasagna in close to a year so I'm super excited.

    Don’t even hahaha! She’s having a tomato based, faux meat / lentil / mushroom sauce, with béchamel sauce made from probably plant-based butter or olive oil, and plant-milk, layered between lasagne sheets with plant-based cheese between each layer!!
    Or is vegan lasagne just easier to say?

    Actually you are so wrong! The lasagna was delicious and tasted like traditional lasagna which was commented by two others who were skeptical.

    I never said it wasnt good, I bet it was delish. But its not lasagna :)

    I will be upfront and say I am not vegan. I have many food restrictions due to medical reasons and allergies, so a vegan or even vegetarian lifestyle does not work well for me (I have tried). That said, I love reading threads like this and watching vegan/vegetarian YouTubers for great ideas on how to increase the amount of produce I eat and for recipes. I try not to eat a ton of meat (for a stirfry I will use half the meat normally called for and double the veg) and I do make vegan/vegetarian meals often (LOVE an easy veggie pasta with roasted garlic hummus as the sauce).

    So I hope you all don't mind me hanging around for ideas and tricks!

    I'm here because I thought about going vegan and I was just looking at a few options of creative foods. You guys have some awesome suggestions and I might be making my decision very soon. I think I may be trying to go vegan just to wear this shirt lol. Nonetheless I'm really down I have a lot of underlying issues that I think going vegan can help.
