February New Food Links

>> Sunday, March 1, 2015

Feel free to skip this post and come back next time for another quilting one. Or maybe you just might want to try a recipe or two. ;)

We started eating plant based, whole foods thanks to the Forks over Knives documentary on Netflix.

You can view their website and watch the documentary if it interests you.

Forks over Knives

Not only have my husband and I noticed a significant change in our energy levels, it's also been surprising in a number of different ways. My teeth feel clean! My breath never gets really smelly. . . My hair doesn't get as oily. . . You can see where I'm going with this!

I won't even mention the feeling of BEING healthy and the lost weight and the improved blood pressure rates and resting heart rates.

I could go on, but instead I'm making this post to start saving all the new recipe links in one place! It is my web log after all.

Banana Bites - taste like banana bread but really moist (wet banana bread?) not everyone's cup of tea here, but a really healthy sweet treat.
From the blog The Simple Veganista

 Hearty Potato Kale Lentil Soup - this is Chicken noodle soup for vegans - without the chicken or the noodles! Love how this smells and tastes. Everyone here likes to eat it too - an added bonus!
From the blog Hummusapien - love the name! I subscribed immediately. Love her voice and style. She posts an informative (for this new vegan!) post every Wednesday on what she ate for the week.

Vegan Red Beans and Rice - at my husband's request I searched for and found this recipe. Everyone ate it as well. Hubby and I mashed this up and put it in tacos too.
From BudgetBytes - not everything here is vegan, but enough good ideas to keep me coming back!

Jamie Oliver Vegan{Blueberry}  Pancakes! Second time's the charm! The recipe only makes 4 pancakes (!) and the first time I tried to double parts of it to make more. Second time I just added a full cup of flour (instead of 125 g) and they looked and tasted even better. {The blueberry is in brackets because I haven't added any to ours yet and the pancakes still turned out}

BEFORE we started eating vegan, we were already trying out vegetarian dishes.

Kusherie Egyptian Rice has been linked here before but I'm adding it to this post too. (They've changed the setup of this website - not sure I like it tonight. We'll see how well I like it next time I make Kusherie!)

One more too!

Potato Leek Soup - made tons and it's all portioned out for lunches.

I guess we've been trying a lot of new things this month! Not listed are the things we created ourselves (butternut squash soup, refried beans, hummus) and the recipe I've made 3 times now for Lemon Oatmeal cookies that are included in the Forks over Knives app. I think I made the Black Eyed Peas Burgers from the app too!

Here's looking to more foodie adventures in March!

I'd love it if you have a vegan dish to share with me; we're on the lookout for soups, baking and the elusive slow cooker meal!

With Joy,

Sarah Vee

You should email Michelle (I can give it to you if you don't have it). They've been vegans for years so she'd have lots of recipe ideas and cook book recommendations.

I must come back and really check out these sites. I am going to share this with a friend of mine, who has started eating this way, and has lost so much weight and also feels so good, she basically says she eats nothing with "a face or has a mother". I love butternut soup. That is lot to take in, in just a month!! I missed your last blog post, and see you are working on your 1904. I think I'll be taking mine to FL and get that puppy done. You are way ahead of me, but hopefully WE will have them for this Autumn!! smoochies!! L.
