Cooking what’s left in the fridge and having no idea on what I am doing dish. When it’s still weird looking plated, just drizzle some hot sauce and...it’s done.
Still wholesome (kinda), still healthy (enough) and I can go groceries shopping again!
Lentil Loaf Recipe
If you’re still looking for a delicious, healthy and simple vegan x-mas menu, this post is for you🤗🎄
Serving lentil loaf with some potato dumplings, red cabbage and a vegan gravy is always a good idea🧡
The basic recipe is: 300g lentils (or any other kind of legumes), 400g veggies and 200g nuts. You can customize the recipe by adding different vegetables, nuts, legumes and spices. Below I‘ll share with you my favorite combination👇🏻
Recipe for the Lentil Loaf:
• 300g Lentils, dry weight • 4 stalks of Celery
• 2 Carrots
• 100g Spinach
• 1 Onion • 1 Garlic clove • 200g Walnuts • 2 Tbsp Mustard • 700ml Vegetable Broth
• Spices of your choice .
1. Put onions, garlic, carrots and celery in a pan and „fry“ for 5 minutes with water.
2. Then add lentils and fry for another minute. Add half of the vegetable broth as well as spinach.
3. Let simmer on low heat for 30 minutes until lentils are soft. Add remaining vegetable broth in the mean time.
4. Remove pot from heat and mix cooked vegetables with a hand blender.
5. Put walnuts in a food processor and add to the veggie mix. Add mustard and combine all ingredients well until you get a burger-patty-like consistency.
6. Preheat oven at 200 Degrees C. Place your loaf in a baking tin and bake for 60 minutes (time can vary depending on your oven and the height of your loaf).
7. Let cool for 15 minutes, slice and serve with potato dumplings, red cabbage and a vegan gravy. Enjoy!💚

Question: What are you going to have for Christmas Dinner?😋🎄
Looking forward to a weekend in! Although I am going to have a couple of glasses of wine tonight 🤗. Chicken 🐔 all round today. We nearly went out for tea as a treat for the kids but changed our minds 😅. Then the McDonald’s temptation loomed but I just thought to myself, the only reason you’re considering it is because you can’t be bothered to make tea; you don’t actually want it! It’s just tiredness. So I was a rebel and made chicken kebabs and Jackie chan instead. Which is what I actually WANTED to eat. No way am I ready for a cheat. Still reeling off the buffet/cheeseboard incident 😳. Plenty of naughty food to be had over the next couple of weeks without throwing lazy junk food into the mix 🐷. I’m planning on going to the gym in the morning but the cars are frozen over already so if it looks really icy I’ll not go 👎🏻😭. This will be the struggle over the next few months. I’ll have to set the home gym back up 😂. #healthymeals#whatiate#fooddiary#ifitfitsyourmacros#willpower#kidspam#chicken#protein#squeakybeans#myfitnesspal#fridaynightvibes#bedtimecuddles#mfp#caloriecounting#easymeals#weightmaintenance
•1/2 C Oats •1 C Water •Granola
•1/2 C Strawberry
•Nut butter •Flax seeds 🌱Flax is full of omega-3 fatty acid (good if you don’t eat fish like me!) that promotes brain health, lowers blood-fat levels and promotes heart health! Strawberries are high in vitamin C and many micros and nut butter is a protein-rich and sweet substitute for sugar!
I was never a big egg eater before going vegan. I hated the smell and taste and refused to eat anything with egg in it. I know I'm weird and probably in the minority of people who dislike eggs that much but hey who needs them anyway?
This eggless vegan quiche has all the wonders of a quiche and non of the egg. Give it a try 😉❤️ Happy Weekend y'all!
Trying to cook up some inspiration for the next few weeks’ worth of recipes. Aside from Holiday dishes that we typically have every year, I’m feeling stuck in a food rut!
What’s on your menu? Want to find a few recipes to share and send them my way? 😉 I’m #glutenfree , #dairyfree , #eggfree . Good luck 😂
Anyone else need a quick delicious inexpensive dinner!!!?! This time of year I am finding less and less time to cook dinner at night with recitals, kids games and crazy schedules! These chicken taquitos came to the rescue last night! They are so delicious and everyone loves. The homemade Salsa Especial Mild is our fave salsa from @traderjoes. Set out beans, (bell paper and onion melody in Trader Joe’s freezer section) cheese, sour cream, guacamole and chips and or tortillas and wha-laaaaa! 15 minutes later dinner is ready!🙌🏻What are some of your quick go to meals? Happy happy Friday everyone! Hope this easy meal idea helps you guys out during this crazy busy time! So so nice to have on and for those nights that are in need of something quick!

Happy #FoodieFriday ! Do you struggle to cook for yourself? One of the biggest complaints from people is that they don't want to cook for one. .
So Coach Kerri (@coachkerri_depth) shared this very easy, one pan dish to get a healthy dinner and one leftover meal for lunch the next day. Cut up potatoes, carrots and celery and place it in a pan with two seasoned chicken breasts. Bake at 375° for an hour. #easymeals#cookingforone#tasty#onepan#healthy#balancedmeal#noexcuses#betterthantakeout
Mom’s Face to face Friday💥
Over 60lbs ⬇️ on Keto 👊🏻
It’s doesn’t matter how old you are. If you want change you can do it!💪🏼
It’s been a slow and steady journey for my mom. It took her a while to realize that eating fruit would only slow her progress down more. She looooves fruit and even though I would tell her not to eat it, I know she would🤫. Even though it’s fruit, it’s still a cheat. So don’t eat it unless it fits your macros.
Now that my mom has realizes how important it is to stay on track and no cheats, the weight is coming off quicker.
If you’re not losing weight, you need to change something up. Keep changing things around until you find what works for YOU. Don’t stop until the weight starts coming off consistently (1-2lbs a week). If you have a lot of weight to lose, you will lose more weight the first few months.
There is no reason (other than medical) why you shouldn’t be losing weight if you’re doing everything right. You’re probably eating to many carbs and or too many calories. Simple solution... eat less!
I struggled to get my mom on the Keto wagon 💯, but I finally succeeded and just look at this change. I feel so so proud of her. I’m waiting for the day she reaches her goal🙌 Donnie @donclurman promised her a family trip ✈️ to Paris 🇫🇷 when she gets there!💃💃💃 .
If this woman on the left was able to give up all her favorite Mexican foods, that she was used to eating for 60 years of her life... gosh darn it you can too!
Tag a friend, your tia, aunt, your mom anyone who needs to see that it’s never too late to change❤️

Happy Aloha Friday everyone 🌺Another comfort food dinner comes in a form of a veggie chow fun😁 The best part about a stir fry noodle dish is that you can add as much veggies as your heart desires, and you can have dinner ready in 15 minutes or less, depending on your chopping skills 😬
1 Tbsp cooking oil
1/2 onion, sliced
8 oz oyster mushrooms (or any mushrooms), chopped or sliced
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks or minced
3 cloves garlic, cut into thin slices or minced
1 large carrot, peeled and cut into thin slices
1/2 napa cabbage, shredded
1 bunch mustard greens, chopped
1 pound store bought wide chow fun noodles
1 bunch of scallions (green part only), chopped
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup, agave or sugar
Whisk sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
1️⃣Preheat a wok or a large non stick pan to high.
2️⃣Add cooking oil, followed by the onions. Stir constantly, to not let the onions burn. Add mushrooms and continue to stir constantly for about 1 minute. Add ginger and garlic and cook another 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add carrots and continue cooking on high for 1 minute, keep stirring. Add the shredded cabbage, mustard greens, noodles and sauce and continue to cook on high, tossing everything together with tongs, until the greens are wilted, the sauce thickens, and everything is nicely coated, about 1-2 minutes.
3️⃣At the very end of cooking, add the chopped scallions, toss a couple of times and turn off the heat. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!

Pasta???🍝For breakfast??? We don’t follow food rules in this household 👩🏼🍳 Used some of the AHMAZING sweet potato gnocchi from @faithfullyfed to throw this dish together. Put those bad boys, a scrambled egg, & feta on top of some fresh greens and VIOLA!! You got a hearty, healthy, & extra tasty breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner. All foods fit my friends 🥰 #madseats
Feeds a family of four? Yep. All-organic? You bet. Under $10?! Believe it. With lots of holiday cooking on the horizon, we're filling our fridges with 4-packs of Ramen Kits, available for $9.99 at select Costcos.
Instant Pot TIP: ✨ Use your Instant Pot as a double boiler this holiday season to melt and temper chocolate! Just add a cup or two of water to your Instant Pot, then set on low Sauté. Place a bowl over the liner so it sits on the ridge above the water and you can use it as a double boiler on your table or counter, not the stove. If the water gets too hot, just turn the Instant Pot to keep warm mode. Just another unique and convenient way to use your instant pot! 😊 Happy candy making!! What are you doing or cooking this weekend? #instantpotcooking#instantpot
"Keep in mind that a hiker’s diet consists of 3000 – 4500 calories per day. So I obviously go through a lot of food... From Harmony House I like the Backpacking Soup & Chili Kit (which is an excellent deal)... I’m [also] partial to all the berries and the bananas – I use them in my oatmeal." – Trek on the Trail Testimonial
Doesn't this Bang Bang shrimp from @40aprons look SO yummy?
I'm adding this to the recipe lineup over the Christmas break for sure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For my FASTer Way clients, this is a great way to get LOTS of protein from the shrimp. On low carb day, I plan to throw it over some lettuce and call it a day. When I am eating all the carbs? Shrimp with stir-fry veggies and some rice sounds tasty. Got a kid like mine? I make him the standard Velveeta mac n cheese as a side and make sure he eats the vegetables I've prepared. Pretty simple, really. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm so happy to have lots of great options for healthy-eating and a program that allows me to leverage the best of a KETO diet yet has room for LOTS of CARBS, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Let's make 2019 YOUR year.
Healthy swap Friday!
Last night we decided to make Cilantro Lime Chicken fajitas. Only one problem, I forgot to add tortillas to my grocery list, so of course, I forgot them!
I absolutely LOVE qdoba & chipotle burrito bowls, so that's what I did. Only instead of brown or cilantro lime rice I used cauliflower rice. I was a little worried how it would taste, even though this swap has worked with other meals, but it was DELICIOUS. And I didnt taste a difference.
What are some healthy swaps you use to make your meals healthier?! And let me know if you want this recipe!
So this is kind of a hard break now, but I have some recipes left from summer and of course want to share them.😁 So here comes
Vinegar is a good way to preserve herbs and spices and also has lots of health benefits. A high-quality vinegar is good for digestion, strenghens the intestinal flora and is therefore also good for our metabolism.
For my mixtures I used an organic white wine vinegar. 🌿🌿
Rosemary vinegar (250ml)
A small hand full of rosemary leaves, 1 clove of garlic, 3 peppercorns. I cut the rosemary leaves and the garlic, so that the vinegar can extract more of the healthy ingredients. Rosemary strenghtens and stimulates. 🌿🌿
Here I put in some leaves from both herbs. It is a little taste-experiment. :-) Both herbs have a regulating effect on the stomach and are good for digestion.
Both vinegars have to rest 2-4 weeks now in the kitchen. Then you can filter them through a coffee filter.
🇹🇭 Another great thing about travelling in Thailand: the food!😁 We ate outside 2-3 times a day. In Bangkok as often as possible in the street kitchens and later in the not-tourist restaurants. There you get original food from mama and it is so cheap. Street kitchen: 0,80€-1,10€ for one meal and in the restaurants from around 1,50€ to 3€. Thai food for breakfast? I didn't think, I could do that, but it worked.😉 But I have to admit that after 4 weeks I was looking forward to some variations in the food again. The first thing we ate here was a big and fresh salad.😃
