Stuff I Ate

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.
As we head into the holiday weekend (YAY!), I’m really trying to find balance between healthy foods and indulgent meals. There’s no way I’m avoiding holiday sweets and vacation eats, but not every meal has to be indulgent. So I’m finding balance with big salads and bowls.

I’ve been eating a lot of Big Ass Salads lately, mostly with an easy tahini-acv dressing. Last week, I had this salad with a slice of Sprouted Grain Toast with Deviled Tofu Spread (leftover from my Vegan Corner guest segment on the Chris Vernon Show).

Here’s a super-delicious bowl I made this week — Peanut Coconut Tofu Bowls! This has air-fried tofu, sauteed broccoli, bell pepper, mushrooms, and onions, quinoa, and a bottled peanut coconut sauce.

Okay, here are a few not-as-healthy meals! I took Monday morning off work since I’d been in Nashville all weekend. I really enjoy having a day to get my chores done and get myself prepped for the week. So I slept in and enjoyed a bowl of Koyo Baked Ramen with Tofu & Veggies.

And here’s a sad one: As I’ve mentioned before, Fuel Cafe — where my friend Don bakes the best vegan pizza in town — is closing on Dec. 22. I’m so bummed about it! I met Susan and Pam there on Tuesday night for one last meal. I got the Brussels & Shiitake Pizza with cashew cream, brussels, smoked shiitakes (they taste like bacon), fresh dill, and fresh tarragon.

Happy Holidays, y’all!! I’ll back in soon with holiday food pics.
