I’ve gone meatless on Monday for the past few months and have been asked to share what I eat on those days.
With a thrill, today I threw out the scavenged turkey carcass from Thanksgiving and thankfully enjoyed the following:
Vanilla Shakeology with a banana and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It was 76 degrees today so this hit the spot.
This was the highlight of my meals today. A quick throw together of two new food finds.
The salad was crisp, crunchy and sweet. But those empanadas… they made my toes curl. The sweetness of the plantains was balanced with the tang and creaminess of a blend of sharp cheddar, monterey jack and gorgonzola. Decadent at 180 cals per empanada. Gonna keep these in my freezer.
So often, we hear that feeding our bodies fast food or junk is less expensive and more convenient than real food. Both of these items are convenience foods. The cost of food on my plate was $3.22 and excluding the 17 min bake time, it took me 2 mins tops to put this meal together. Cost effective, time efficient good food that is also good for you exists.
We find what we look for.
