Today I made a vegetarian loaf resembling meatloaf and a roasted baby butternut squash salad with a mustard vinegarette. It all turned good, esp. the vinegarette.

I made my wife pot roast with potatoes, carrots, and onions and baked her up some frozen rolls.

Everybody had a great dinner today.

Tomorrow I am making veggie pizza on lavash bread and salad.

Anyone else eating dinner these days?

Tomorrow I'm making Subway marianted faux chicken (Quorn)...I got a copycat recipe and tweaked it. I'll let ya'll know how it turns out. I already tasted the marinade and it's pretty close to Subway's. I have them marinating overnight for lotsa flavor.

I'm not sure what else I'm having with it.

Last night I made hot dogs and put them in a LC pita bread with mustard, onions, and relish. They were pretty good. I used the 365 brand of veggie dogs and I like them, but they are a bit smaller/thinnner than most veggie dogs. I also had a cucumber, cilantro, and tomato salad with lemon juice and olive oil drizzled over it.

I'm back on the potato protocol. Made potato pizza (per Mike Teehan youtube video - where I got the idea for the pizza).

Peeled and sliced potatoes through the cuisinart slicer, spread on non-stick foil, baked 30 min on 400, then covered in fat free pizza sauce from TJ, sprinkled with nutritional yeast, and baked another 15 min.

I think I might try baking longer before the sauce next time.

The potato pizza sounds interesting.

I think pizza made just about any way is great.

I'm not Sherril, but I have used the Tumaro brand, though this multigrain wrap would only save you 1 additional carb rather than Sherril's 2.(sorry I don't know what brand she uses). I don't mind the taste or texture as compared to other brands I've tried, but taste is such an individual thing...so YMMV. I like that it has 6 gr of protein too. They have other flavors, but I have'tt tried them. I think their "multigrain" has the least net carbs and the highest protein, but don't quote me on that! LOL I cannot find this brand at my local store, so sadly, many months go by in-between purchases.

Tumaro's "Multigran" LC Tortillas
Total Carbs -11g
Fiber - 7g
Net carbs - 4g

Protein - 6g

I made a pouch of carrots, green beans, red onion, and 2 quorn faux chicken cutlets. I baked it and it turned out surprisingly good. I had salted radishes for a side dish.

Tomorrow I'm making a butternut squash, roasted red pepper, and arugula salad with a MSF big bean burger patty for the protein. I'll probably put some bbq sauce on the burger and a stuffed jalepeno as a bonus side.

I'm trying to eat more veggies and get in adequate protein.

I made a yummy soup from the Eat to Live book, called Austrian Creamy Cauliflower. It was good. I drizzled some tahini, braggs amino and curry sauce on top after heating with some fresh lemon juice. It tasted good to have a hot soup on such a cold day.

Spaghetti made with Yves ground and homemade spaghetti sauce.

I used diced tomatoes with red pepper and fennel, can of tomato sauce, half an onion, half a bell pepper, 1 celery rib, and some spices and simmered it a couple of hours and then used the stick blender to puree it thick.

It was really good and I have enough spaghetti left for lunch today and enough sauce for lasagne later on.

We got another 10-12" of snow. This has been a really snowy winter. Something to do with the gulf stream being affected by the warmer temperature in the Arctic Circle. But I hired the plow guy to come and do us during the night so in the morning we can get out to go to work.

Had roasted brussel sprouts marinated in Bragg's, balsamic vinegar, onion powder and nutritional yeast. They cooked a tad too long. And were salty. But I didn't add any salt. Also had a 16 oz salad, my pumpkin tofu whipped pudding and an apple. I feel like I ate too much but it was all veggies and fruit with the exception of a tbsp tahini sauce and the 3 oz tofu w/ flaxseed meal.

MaryMary enjoy your post. (and everyone else also )

Just wondered which vegan diet do you follow? I read somewhere you eat fruit now to maintain. Does fruit make that much difference?

Thanks

Mary/Mary - we have been using the a/c for the past 3 days...big difference in our weathers.

I haven't used nutritional yeast yet, but I bought some. It sounds like something I will like.

I am thinking that maybe the Bragg's might make things taste salty. I use that from time to time and use less salt. I could be wrong, but it does seem salty to me.

I am sort of following Eat to Live. I always had a fruit at breakfast during my weight loss, but when I got to my goal, I added first a fruit at lunch and then at dinner. Still kept losing. When I started to increase the protein just by an ounce at each meal, I stopped losing. Calories got to about 1700. I am not real active right now with the cold weather, but will start walking again as soon as it warms up.

We got 3 more inches snow yesterday. More shoveling for me, yeh!

The nitritional yeast gives things a cheesy flavor and has B12. When I had my physical, my B12 numbers were good. Vitamin D was ok but on the low side, so am taking a supplement. The salt probably did come from Braggs. I will have to dial it back next time I marinate something. Going to marinate soy tempeh today.

I've been on a homemade V-8+, salad, and protein kick this week.

Last night, I made bbq'd quorn meatballs which turned out good, some sauteed squash with onion and fresh green chili pepper, and a regular salad with olives in it and honey mustard dressing.

Tonight, I'm making bbq'd boca burger on a multi grain flat bun, some steamed cauliflower with homemade cheese sauce, and maybe some onion rings or else salad....depends on my energy level.
My wife is eating T-bone steak.

Anyone else cooking something?

Long time no see Nigel. Yesterday we had a veggie only meal, sautéed cabbage, mac & cheese with Dreamfields pasta and a sort of broccoli and green bean casserole. BS one nor after dinner was ply 106 so I was thrilled.
