Hey OtherMother, I have a few questions for you :) Based on your meals, I am assuming you are vegetarian? Have you been for a while? I have been doing a good amount of reading/documentary watching about nutrition lately and find myself leaning toward a more vegetarian lifestyle (with very little dairy as well), but it is all new to me. My questions:
1. what are those carob-spirulina chunks? something you make or buy? I have been adding spirulina powder to smoothies (along with hemp seeds and ground flax)
2. are your daughter and partner vegetarian? My DH is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and not a fan of beans (though hasn't been complaining about the frequent bean and lentil soups). I am wondering how to find a balance of meatless dinners while also not forcing him to charge his eating habits. The idea of making 2 dinners is NOT appealing. Luckily, my kids eat pretty much everything, so this is not a concern for breakfast and lunch (my kids and I have been eating these meals almost completely raw for the past few weeks as well).
Just curious, as you seem to eat very similar to what I have been doing/craving.
