We’ve ordered a few recipe books with healthier menus for meals but until they get here, we are doing our best picking up recipes here and there. Learning new tricks to the trade. Hopefully, these books are full of tasty recipes.
Breakfasts simple to prepare we like to have our “juice” or eggs and English Muffins. On occasions we’ll have battered apple slices. Or even just some fresh fruits. We’re don’t care for tofu at all. So that limits our choices some.
Lunches seem to give us more opportunity to do easy things like: Veggie burgers, start with 1/2 a mashed avocado splashed with a bit of lemon juice spread on thin bread buns (instead of mayo/mustard/ketchup). On top of that add sautéed mushrooms topped with sautéed onions, some romaine lettuce, a slice or two of cucumber and tomato. Or a salad: Kale, romaine, spinach, chard, combined with grated carrots, beets, sliced tomato and cucumber, chopped red onion and dressing made with smashed avocado splashed with lemon. Mixing things up a bit making burritos out of mixed vegetables and some potatoes and beans. We seems to always add a bit of kale to everything in order to get what we need, hiding the somewhat bitter flavor with the various seasonings.
We’ll keep looking for more delicious recipes with no additional sugars, processed spreads, or fats. Choosing healthier vegetable fats such as the avocado. We are figuring out all sorts of little tricks of the trade. Picking up hints everywhere. Replacing as much processed foods, sugar and fats as possible with healthier choices that are grown naturally.
