One Day as a Vegan - Menu Plan [#CTWW]



This week's challenge comes from EcoGrrl

This week, eat Vegan for one entire day. That means, for one entire day eat only plant-based foods ... no meat, poultry, fish, dairy, etc.

Eating a vegetarian meals once per week is realistic for my husband and I.  We usually do a pasta with red sauce and lots of vegetables.  He is a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, so it is challenging sometimes to have a meal without meat.  We have began eating more fish, but either way, we're still impacting the environment.  I accept this week's challenge to go one steps further and eat vegan for one day.  Here is my menu plan for tomorrow (Sunday).
(I will substitute Almond Butter)

(My parents are coming in town and we usually eat out for lunch)


 
Black Bean and Avocado Quesadilla
(Remove the cheese, add mushrooms)

Do you want to join me on this one-day challenge?  If one day of eating Vegan is too much for you, then start with one meal.  If you want to know more about the challenge, Reduce Footprints blog can tell you all about it.

That veggie bowl looks great!! And bananas & peanut butter in oatmeal ... heaven! What do you pour on your oatmeal? I love vanilla soy milk ... turns breakfast into a desert! :-)

For a vegan dinner, I love to make a stir fry with rice. It's so easy & quick. For a protein, one can add cubed tofu. Yum! There are also a bunch of recipes on my blog here:

Rebelle Doll - going vegetarian for a few meals is a great way to improve your diet (diet as in the food you eat, not dieting by eliminating certain food groups).

My goal is to incorporate a vegan meal each week. I can't declare it a vegan meal or my husband will roll his eyes, so I will do it quietly. It's okay if he doesn't know, right? :)

Sugar Girl - I think Chipotle is my new fave "fast food." I love that Chipotle has some organic ingredients and tries to buy local foods.

Wow, that oatmeal is the perfect way to start the day--fruit, carbs, and protein! I'm going to steal this idea for myself. :)

Ohkeeka - It's delicious! You are going to love it! Even my reluctant husband who don't usually eat oatmeal liked it!
