Whatcha Been Eating?

Since I haven't been posting daily eats much this week, I decided to empty the camera of food snapshots to give you a little idea of what a plant-based way of eating looks like. At least, this is what it has been looking like lately. It will be different tomorrow, I'm sure of it!

PS: Cutie alert.

lentil burgers (brown rice, lentils, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, quinoa flour) + sprouted ezekiel bun, mashed avocado, mustard, cabbage leaf, sweet potato fries baked in coconut oil, ketchup.

bell pepper, zucchini, tomato sauteed with chili powder, salt, pepper, paprika

broccoli, bell pepper cooked in water with nutritional yeast, paprika, italian seasoning + cauliflower crust (too lazy to make it a pizza, ate as a 'bread' on the side, delish!) made with sprouted buckwheat, italian seasoning, coconut oil + lentils cooked in curry powder, paprika, chili powder + salt.

whole wheat lasagna noodles + tofu ricotta (tofu, italian seasoning, lemon juice, garlic, onion) + homemade sauce (Whole Food's brand organic tomato puree, fresh basil, dash of salt, italian seasoning, garlic powder) + nutritional yeast + zucchini

pozole from Edu's work! google it, it's superb. sans meat and still loaded with chili flavors!

papas con rajas - potatoes and poblano chili strips. poblano chili was seared, then partially pealed (as you can see, not a whole lot of luck) then cut into strips - potatoes were soaked in water for an hour (to break down starches, they bake quicker and crispier!) then coated with coconut oil and baked. no seasoning needed, friends!

kale, lemon, beets, orange, ice, water, banana

potatoes, rosemary, garlic powder, coconut oil

apple, kiwi, fig jam, hemp seeds

homemade whole wheat crust, sauce, nutritional yeast, sprouted tofu, italian seasoning, bell pepper, pineapple, zucchini, serrano chili peppers

frozen banana, unsweeteed cocoa powder, carob powder, prunes, ice = blend. topped with hemp hearts, kamut puffs, muesli and walnuts.

(blurry) quinoa cooked in chili powder and paprika + bell pepper, serrano chili, zucchini and green cabbage sauteed with more paprika and chili powder (addiction?!) topped with avocado

crust: almonds, hemp seeds, dates, unsweetened extra dark cocoa powder. middle: pumpkin puree, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, hint of ginger (all powdered) with a little water. top: pumpkin puree, unsweetened extra dark cocoa powder, carob, dates.

a pumpkin pie slice (see above) with oats, coconut, raisins and almond milk. perfect breakfast!

waffles (quinoa flour, kamut puffs, oats, cinnamon, baking soda/powder, applesauce, almond milk) + banana + almond butter + coconut + frozen cherries

pineapple, orange, banana, ice, water!

There you have it. Vegans don't starve to death, don't need to eat tofu every day, and aren't protein deficient. Unless you're eating just iceberg lettuce and carrots. Then, you might just have a few issues, and your doctor may tell you that your blood test results are disappointing. Eat beans, eat many greens, eat in abundance. Plus, Santiago will get mad at you if you tell him that baby's cannot thrive in the womb or live off of breast milk with a mommy who eats pure plants.

And we don't want to make him mad, do we?


  1. Oh, I don't know ... his mad face is pretty cute! And, is he waving at us in the first set of pics??

    1. Haha I would love to think so! He always brings his hands up to his face like that :) so goofy
