If you’ve been following me along on Instagram, you’ll notice I post food every-so-often – and so far it’s been absent-mindedly posted without any regard to recipes, etc. That all changes after today, because food and nutrition are so important to me, I figured it’s time we start to share everything. Well, maybe not everything.
One thing to note, while we are not Vegan, we do make and eat a lot of Vegan meals. This is largely in part of my lactose intolerance – I can’t have any dairy products, so we’ve found it easiest to just go with vegan recipes since most vegetarian dishes include some milk-based products. Also note: We only consume meat twice a week, so we are plant-based around 80% of the time.
First up on the Instagram are these Curried Salmon Cakes. We love our roasted veggies, so it’s only fitting that we pair this up with some roasted cauliflower, and some NearEast brand rice. The salmon was canned, so it tasted more like tuna fish – with a bite! So the list of ingredients and brief write-up, check out: Curried Salmon Cakes
Second on the gram, Korean BBQ Lentils! We love lentils, and we love the taste of this dish, so flavorful, so rich – honestly, I couldn’t get enough. Being primarily plant-based, I can fill up on these meals and not have any sort of weighted or bloated feeling in my belly. I eat until I’m full, and I find meals with Lentils offer a healthy balance. Naturally, we paired this up with some brown rice, and roasted asparagus (my favorite).

Last, but not least is this decedent Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potato. Let’s pause and just take it all in. Just look at that roasted sweet potato, those fresh berries, the homemade granola and oats with that amazing peanut butter drizzle. This would have made for a super filling breakfast, so we chose to eat it for dinner instead. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my breakfast foods, but this one is so hearty, I can’t imagine eating this for breakfast – it’s a brunch/dinner meal if you ask me.
