I haven't been on this thread all month! I can see I've missed quite a bit!
I"m currently pregnant, so the thought of veggies makes me ill, unfortunately! Oh well, I guess that's what multivitamins are for. I'm still eating a lot of fresh and dried fruit though, and whole grain toast, bagels, and cereal are my staples- so not too unhealthy! I had just really gotten into the swing of planning and cooking all kinds of great meals (using lots of recipes from this thread!) and now I can't stand to cook, and we're back to eating out a lot and eating breakfast foods for dinner.
: So much for saving $!
Cathe- those recipes you posted earlier in the thread look terrific- I can't wait till I can make the lentil dal and sietan chicken and cashews! Maybe in a few weeks when I'm feeling better...I think I'm going to ask for your book for a Mother's Day gift.
A Burmese restaurant opened up near us, and let me tell you, it is FANTASTIC!! So, incredibly delish!! It's a cross between Thai and Indian, with tons of veggie choices. I had this basil cilantro tofu, samosas, and a veg soup that were so, so, so good!! I can't stop thinking about that food!
And ditto on the toddler eating the same few foods- my ds only eats veggie bacon and sausage, waffles (homemade w/ flaxseed), veggie lunchmeat, quorn, rice, broccoli (but he's sick of it now and won't eat it anymore!), sometimes yogurt, and he mainly exists on those Whole Kids cereal bars. I think back fondly to those nice days when he was a baby and I made him all kinds of great baby foods- avocado, sweet potato, mango, wheat germ and nutritional yeast in everything...sigh...
