Who here like to eat boring food with any flavor? Who here likes to eat vegetables? Who equates boring food without flavor to vegetables?
I am here to tell you that vegetables don’t have to be plain and boring. Herbs and spices are a cooks best friend.
I too used to equate plain, boring food that didn’t taste good with vegetables. As I have gotten older, learned to cook, developed food intolerances and just wanted to try new things, I began trying new healthy recipes.
Of late I have been stuck in a rut food wise, and now I am breaking free. I bought myself a clean eating cookbook and a quick & easy vegan cookbook a couple weeks ago and now I am breaking them out and trying new recipes.
I am also doing clean eating on a budget, which is so far going well. Beings that I wasn’t buying any chicken I was able to get what o needed on my list an stick to my budget.
For lunch I had made Sicilian Bruschetta on gluten free bread, and I had a coconut milk yogurt and some lotus green tea.
For my dinners during this next week I made tropical quinoa, which also has black beans in it. Brings that quinoa is a complete protein, the black beans just help bulk it out and help fill you up. The recipe I used called for mango, but I am really not a fan of mangoes so I used pineapple instead.
