Vegan Lasagna Rollups

Hi Tuesday, nice to see you again. You may have brought frost to our windshields, and a chilly breeze to our step, but I'm happy you're here! If only my legs didn't feel like they weighed 300 pounds each, if only I could run as long, fast, and hard as possible without the slight trace of fatigue hitting my body, I would be over-joyed! Yet here I am, 2 days after my first 8 mile run, and I feel like heavy chains are attached to my hips, knees, shins and toes. Blast! What to do? I plan on icing the good fellas, and greeting the elliptical trainer.

Killing approximately 508 calories

  • steel cut oats
  • rice milk
  • water
  • cinnamon
  • raisins
  • coconut
  • wheat germ
  • sunflower seeds
  • raw pumpkin seeds
  • chia seeds
  • frozen blueberries
  • almond butter
  • bananananna

Breakfast oats on a plate was so. much. fun. I don't know why I never thought of this! It felt like I was eating dinner, it was more interesting and less spoon + bowl, spoon + bowl, clean out bowl with spoon.... And it fooled my mind into thinking I was eating a lot more oatmeal, which made my heart sing a bit :)

Lunch was amaaaazing: bbq Mexican beans w/ brown rice. This recipe was simple and truly delightful to eat. The chili powder added intense heat without making my eyes water and the avocado + lime made the whole dish run wild with flavor! Unbelievable, I say.

Home = 10 minute abs, green monster for dinner, and cooking like a mad woman.

  • 1 cup rice milk
  • 1 handful kale
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • frozen: banana, strawberries, blueberries
  • ground flaxseed
  • dark unsweetened cocoa powder

coconut + grapes? fabulous!

for hubby tomorrow :)

I think I'm in love with this list of recipes, proof being the amount of ink I used up today while printing off about 200 of her recipes. Jessica's eats are beyond words! I will definitely be using these meals up these upcoming weeks, expect many new eats and treats in this here blog world.

lasagna rolls time! inspired by Beth at Beth's Journey

I love these noodles, they're found everywhere and they're wondrous.

  • seitan
  • eggplant
  • 2 tomatoes
  • spinach
  • italian seasonings
