Today my son wasn’t feeling well, so I wanted to make a soup to nourish him and make him feel loved 🙂 Don’t you like it when people do things for you when you are sick?! It isn’t very often that we get sick around here so it is kind of a big deal that one of us isn’t feeling well. This particular son ate something completely “un-nourishing” the day before he got sick, so it didn’t take me by surprise that his defenses to germs were down.
Lunch today was so wonderful! I LOVE stuffing but I don’t want to be consuming so much wheat that has been ground face powder thin and then baked at a high heat killing all the nutrients. Plus, it makes me heavy and tired. Anyway, I LOVE stuffing! So, today I took my wheat that I had soaked and low heat cooked and mixed it with some butter, onions, celery and stuffing herbs ( sage, thyme, savory, vegesal instead of salt) and voila! Stuffing that nourishes! I’m so excited. I might eat this every day. Continue reading “Wheat Berry Stuffing”
These are the toppings for our lunch today. Braggs liquid aminos, bell peppers, celery, olives, pineapple, red onion, and a cashew sauce. It is a version of Hawaiian Haystacks. In a traditional recipe there would also be chicken and a fatty dressing. We like this one:) Sometimes if we are in a big hurry, we will use a can of creamed corn for the sauce.
Here is the recipe for the sauce. It is soooo good!
1 cup cashews
1/2 cup non dairy milk
2 Tbs. Nutritional yeast
2 Tbs. Lemon juice
1 Tbs. Dijon
Dash black pepper
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Garlic powder or 6 cloves roasted garlic
Optional: 2 Tbs. Parmesan
Blend it up and use as a Caesar dressing or like I did on rice!
I am driving 10 hours to California today to drop my boy off at college. Part of the drive is for my 16 year old to get hours in for his driving license so part of the drive is kind of stressful!
We are on a budget with food, so we packed snacks and stuff for sandwiches with zero fast food in the plans. We are eating celery sticks, baby carrots, hummus, guacamole, reduced fat triscuits, pickles, apples, oranges, orange juice and I brought my Sun Warrior protein powder. The boys are putting mayo, cheese and meat on their whole grain sandwiches and I had guacamole and some cheese on mine. As I work on getting back to eating Whole Foods Plant Based I won’t add the cheese. I also snacked on some valentine candy hearts and felt sick afterwards so it taught me a lesson. I have a sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting. When I go about a week with no sugar the cravings go away. I need to get back to that point again.
Out in the garden we have some onions that came up from last year in a place where we want to grow lettuce instead. We are putting them to good use in our salads and sandwiches! Yum.
Today we made a Veggie Salad Sandwich from the Whole Foods Binder System. We used hummus and instead of the relish we added dried dill. It was pretty good but my favorite is when we use the Vegenaise:)
Here it is, taken straight from the binder, even with the Food Combination Color Coding! (Red for a protein meal which means the tuna in this recipe, green if you choose the pita instead. You are not properly food combining if you choose to eat both the pita and the tuna – there is more explanation in the BINDER.)
We used 3 stalks of celery, 3 green onions, 1 bell pepper, 1 cup of frozen peas, 1 cup of hummus, and 1 Tablespoon of dill and 2 cans of tuna. It fed 7 of us. Again, it was a lower fat version using the hummus but I like the taste of the vegenaise or almondaise best:)
What do you think about making this for lunch?
