    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.

    I would like to recommend to anyone who is Vegan or plant-based to join the Happy Herbivores group on MFP.

    You still are not having lasagna :)
    Enjoy :)

    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?

    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.

    Here’s a falafel recipe I just made this morning, I added brocoli to mine as well and and not use any oil or flour. To not use flour, I just didn’t add the vegetable broth, so the mixture was already dry....however I did add some panko to the mixture to make it easier to roll into balls. They taste great!

    I also made some without them rolled in panko amd like them much better!

    Israeli Salad
    Here is the pin https://pin.it/cmbakap5mca6m4

    The Israeli salad looks so beautifully delicious!!!

    I also want to try making Lebanese fatoush. A friend brought it to a BBQ and I fell in love with it.

    My friend used her Mum's recipe, but that looks similar, except my friend's salad was in smaller pieces like yours (except for the fried lebanese bread pieces which were larger like in the pic).

    I'm sure I'd do the same with the Israeli salad.
