A few have asked… What’s going to be on my plate this evening?
I’ll do a bit better than that and let you know what I’ll be eating all day! (you can also follow my instagram for more updates on what I eat on a daily basis)
For Breakfast today all I had was a bowl of cereal (with almond milk, of course). I knew I had to have something simple and quick since I was going to be in the kitchen most of the morning. It is currently almost 11am as I’m typing this up and am glad to say that everything I’m cooking up is vegan 100% and cruelty free.
So what’s for lunch? While I’m done baking up a storm in the kitchen, I’ll be munching on some BBQ tempeh with lentils, broccoli and quinoa. Luckily I’ll have the stove wide open so I can make this while something’s baking in the oven.
At around 2 in the afternoon, I’ll be packing all of my baked goods (and my own vegan holiday roast dinner) and will drop it off at my mom’s house. From there, I’ll head over to my boyfriend’s family gathering. There, I’ll serve my Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding (recipe on this blog) with coconut whipped cream and some candied pecans that I prepared last night.
At about 5 in the evening, we’ll head over to my mom’s house for pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls, cranberry croissants, cinnamon rolls, pumpkin and sweet potato pies, and …oh yea! my actual dinner!
My ThanksGiving Dinner
I’ll be having 3 slices of my Gardein Holiday Roast with a side of garlic mashed potatoes and my homemade garlic stuffing, everything will be drizzled with tofurky gravy and a wee bit of cranberry sauce 🙂 Most of the dishes I’ve listed here are actually on this blog -just click on ‘recipes’ in the menu -they can be enjoyed all year round! 🙂
What am I thankful for?
First and foremost, I would never have been able to begin treading the waters of veganism without my wonderful boyfriend who sparked the interest in the first place. I’m thankful for having him in my life and for all of the love and care he provides.
What are YOU thankful for?
I hope you all have a wonderful time with your loved ones and above all, enjoy being in each other’s company. Be thankful for what you have and for those in your lives.
From me to you, I hope you have a very happy holiday season this year!
