I think I would classify myself as one of those new health fanatics that falls somewhere between vegetarian, vegan, and pescatarian. I eat fish, but no other types of flesh. I shy away from cow’s milk or ingredients that contain it and I often opt for cashew milk or coconut milk instead, depending on the dish. I eat dairy mayo and cheese if I’m out of the house but stock up on vegan mayo and cheese for home.
If taste and convenience were out of the question, I would be a vegan. I subscribe to the health benefits and I know first hand how much better and lighter I feel when I am strictly following veganism.
The problem with maintaining a strict diet is that I just don’t want to. Food should be fun and delicious and easy! The more I have to think about food, the more of a chore it becomes, and no one likes chores.
So I cook what I want, I eat what I want and I try to stay within loose guidelines.
Ordinarily, I love to cook but recently I had been feeling consumed by other tasks and hadn’t spent much time in the kitchen.
All that changed yesterday. I had a well-stocked fridge, some time and a surge of energy and I decided to go wild. So here’s what I made…
Jerk Baked Shrimp
Sauteed Green Beans
Rice and Peas (Made with Coconut Milk)
Dairy Free Curry Mac
Baked Red Potatoes
Zucchini Soup in a Sweet Potatoe Base
Toasted Tortillas (For Soup)
