What We Eat | Vol. 1

May 19, 2016

Happy Friday! I'm excited about this series "What We Eat" on the blog! I've been getting a TON of questions about my meals on Snapchat, where I post my daily meals! (LivinginColorL). We are newly vegan, and I'm loving it. Grace has never had any animal products so I was very confident in my decision to transition my husband and I after watching Forks Over Knives. But I'm not hear to talk about veganism though...not today at least! I'm just hear to share some DELICIOUS recipes that I've tried lately! You can use dairy products in them if you like or add in a meat very easily, but these are all vegan by nature. Oh, and my one-year-old eats ALL of these things. She loves it all!
Lunch: Creamy pasta dish inspired by this recipe, but I changed a few things...
I used coconut cream instead of heavy cream, didn't add parmesan, 
and used the noodles I had in the pantry. Also added fresh tomato and hemp hearts.
Basically I made it more vegan-friendly. It is delicious though!
Lunch: Fresh cucumber, green bell pepper, romaine lettuce/avocado rolls w/ hemp seeds dipped in some delicious hummus. I ate this whole plate and Grace helped me!
 Lunch: Delicious new take on avocado toast | Inspired by this Recipe here
 Dinner: Vegan Chili | Recipe here
 Breakfast: Hubby's new favorite - Tofu/Soyrizo burritos | Recipe here
 Lunch: plate of fresh veggies with hummus + hemp seeds
Dinner: Crispy Quinoa Cakes | Recipe here
with avocado, tomatoes, and roasted potato & herbs 
(I've made these 3 times in the last 10 days!)
Lunch: Raw veggies with avocado and roasted chickpeas (recipe below)

Roasted chickpeas:
-1 can garbanzo beans
-chili powder
-onion powder
-garlic powder
-salt & pepper to taste
-1 tbsp. olive oil

-Preheat oven to 400 F.
-Coat garbanzo beans with olive oil in a bowl
-Season with above ingredients to taste! (I'd say I use half a tablespoon of each, but I like them pretty seasoned.) Experiment with it and see what works for you.
-Once seasoned, roast the garbanzo beans on parchment paper for 15 minutes.
-Serve & enjoy!
Breakfast: Chia seed pudding | Recipe here - 
I added fresh ground peanut butter and bananas

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest! That's where I keep all my good recipes hidden ;)



  1. Oh my!! Such a delicious and nutritious looking dishes!! Would love to try all of them!


  2. I have seriously been thinking of doing vegan. My little one eats NO meats although just an occasional scrambled egg. These all look like they are right up my ally. Thanks so much for the time and effort into this. Great share <3

  3. This looks yummy....but I hope this isn't the end of our Joy Ride Taco date nights 😂
