If you have friends or family over during the holidays, chances are that someone in your group prefers to follow a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. You’ll want to be sure that there are choices to please everyone. Check out Meatless Monday for some great recipe options! I can personally vouch for the “No-Meat Meatloaf” as being very tasty, and I’m eager to try a few more of these offerings, as well. Of course, fresh fruits/veggies and regular or non-dairy cheeses are always easy additions to the table. Enjoy!
Extreme weather, rising sea levels, and species extinctions are all signs of climate change. Many scientists agree that greenhouse gases are a major threat. What can we each do to make a difference? Fight climate change with your fork! The livestock industry contributes about 14.5% of the greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans, which is even more than those brought about by transportation. Tweaking our diets away from animal products and towards plant-based eating is one way we can each help!

NOTE: If you’re “on the fence” about tofu, I know from experience that freezing it makes a world of difference with the texture! I buy the firmest type I can find and cut the block into thirds or fourths to freeze for later. After I defrost a section for cooking, I then squeeze out all the moisture. No more jiggly tofu! ~Becky

FOR MEATLESS MONDAY OR ANY DAY: Many kids (and teachers!) are going back to school this week, or later this month, in many areas of the U.S. If you’re looking for yummy vegan or vegetarian ideas for lunch boxes, this might be a good place to start! For schools that are “peanut-free,” you could use sunflower seed butter, or your favorite substitute, in those recipes that call for peanut butter. As a former teacher, I still feel a bit of that old magnetism pulling me back toward the classroom each August:) ~Becky
Hey there. I am not going to list any delicious recipes. I am giving you a bunch of delicious links instead. All about lunch. You seem to have breakfast and dinner (or supper) solved. But lunch, not so much. Lots of these you can make at the weekend. And kid friendly too. Here we go! […]
It’s all about improvising when looking for healthier alternatives! This is a perfect dish to include for vegetarian options or if you are trying to cut back on wheat. It couldn’t be any easier than with beautifully, char-grilled eggplant to form the ‘tubes’ for a light and fresh, ricotta and spinach filling. Finally top with […] […]
NOTE: I rarely use recipes exactly the way they’re presented and often tweak a bit. With this one, I baked the thin eggplant slices at 400 degrees with lots of olive oil until tender. For the spinach, I just barely blanched in hot water and didn’t mix in with the ricotta mixture, assembling separately. Either way, hope you enjoy! ~Becky
