Tofu Scramble


Omg last night I was craving an egg sandwich, the kind my mom made me when I was little! The yolk was hard, it was sprinkled with salt and pepper and topped with cheese on white bread. I was thinking about it but not obsessing over it. So I wrote down the craving and gave it a 5 out of 1-10. I don't get it because eggs gross me out and before I became vegan, I stopped eating them. Maybe I was just craving comfort food from my childhood. My Integrative Nutrition book talks about craving food from your childhood or food that your ancestors ate. I'm guessing this is why I was thinking about an egg.


So this morning I woke up and was torn between making mochi or tofu scramble and the tofu won out...probably because of my craving last night. Here is what I did:
1 serving of tofu
Almost a whole bag of Trader Joe's spinach
1 serving of vegan Go Veggie cheese
Nooch
Powdered ginger

I cooked all ingredients using coconut spray in my new stainless steel pan. I put the tofu in the pan first and turned the heat on low. Then I added the spinach and covered the pan for a few minutes. Lastly, I sprinkled the cheese on top and covered the pan so the cheese melted more easily. Before transferred the food to my plate, I sprinkled nooch and ginger.
It was so delish! I also ate two dates and drank a huge glass of lemon water. This week is all about listening to my body and writing down my cravings. I'm trying to eat what my body is telling me to eat and when I crave anything, I'm going to take notes and analyze the craving based on what my nutrition book says.

Tomorrow I'm meeting with a registered dietician to see if I can work through these cravings. I'm hoping she can give me different techniques for losing weight and tell me a few things that I'm not thinking of. I'll write about my experience!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
