Day 11: Finally, new recipes!

Happy Sunday friends 🙂

I started off this morning with some really good eats, I can’t believe I haven’t tried it before (or if I have, it’s been 100 years).


Oats with peanut butter and half a huge, ripe, juicy peach. Mmmm…thank God I have another half of that peach left, yesssss!

I had a cup of black coffee and didn’t eat again until lunch (that stuff was good) when we went to Quizno’s with my parents.

I got the small veggie sub on wheat with no cheese and some Sun Chips.


I had the Garden Salsa Sun Chips until I read the ingredients and saw three different kinds of cheeses, so I put those back and got the good ol’ regular.

I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning and then snacked on some regular peanuts before heading to a concert at our church.


These were just plain, unsalted peanuts and were a welcome change since I’ve been on mixed nuts overload here lately.

For dinner, I made a new recipe from a cookbook called Vegan Planet, which you may have seen before.


I tried to make a guacamole recipe out of here back in September which didn’t turn out too well. But I am hopeful for the ones I picked out this week.

First, I decided to try out the Tuscan White Beans with garlic and sage.


Ingredients lined up.


This was the first time I have EVER used a fresh herbs and this was cheaper than it’s jarred alternative!


I followed the recipe exactly (except cut in half) and threw in some red onion for some added flava 😉


I didn’t have any rice or barley on hand but then I remembered that Kath had used oats before in place of this, so I chose my 5 grain cereal!

Finished product:


Yum-O! This was so tasty, I could really taste the garlic and sage. Oops, I forgot to mention that I used great northern beans instead of cannellini but I think it turned out great.

I’m so glad I had a recipe success!

Guess what I’m having for a snack? Hahaha…

Hope you had a great weekend and make sure to start Monday off good. Do something good for yourself and your health 🙂

  1. Thanks for the new recipe. Looks yummy, filling, healthy, and cheap. I’ll need to be making it!

  2. This morning I was in bed and I was trying to motivate myself to workout and nothing was working until I came across your post

    “Hope you had a great weekend and make sure to start Monday off good. Do something good for yourself and your health ”


    that got me moving this morning =)

  3. I love starting out the week with new recipes! The tuscan white beans sounds so cozy and fallish. Perfect. Have a wonderful Monday! 🙂

  4. That recipe looks delish! Throwing in the red onion sounds like a superb idea. I love onions.

  5. Looooove red onion–great addition!

  6. The new recipe sounds great! It’s also interesting to see how many foods have dairy or added ingredients that you wouldn’t expect- you are very diligent in your new lifestyle and I think that’s great!

  7. Vegan Planet is a great book. We love the Great Grain and Veggie Burgers from there.

    I have a great simple guac. recipe in my Examiner column if you are looking for a guac recipe.
