One day's food
For those who wonder what plant-based eating looks like day to day, here's what we had today.
We typically all eat different things for lunch: my husband and I eat leftovers; the big kids take lunches to school; and Baby has whatever I can scrounge up that I think he will eat. The big kids usually take peanut butter or meat and cheese (obviously not plant-based) sandwiches in their lunches, or cheese and crackers, granola bars, applesauce, fruit, etc.
Cream of wheat with brown sugar and raisins
Smoothie made from oranges, mango, banana, spinach, and water
For me: Leftover minestrone soup and leftover Hawaiian haystacks (rice, beans, tomatoes, green peppers, green beans, and gravy)
For Baby: Whole wheat pasta with homemade vegan parmesan and an orange (parmesan made from nuts, nutritional yeast, and salt)
Date-sweetened oatmeal cookies, crackers, pretzels, raisins
Baked potatoes, canned meatless chili, "cheese" sauce (made from potato, carrot, onion, cashew, and spices), cooked frozen broccoli
