i usually just eat a bunch of fruit and drink black coffee in the morning. today it was a mandarin orange, a gala apple and a banana. for lunch i'll have toast with avocado and a spinach salad.

see the "what's for dinner?" thread for many great meal ideas.

breakfast - cooked millet with coconut oil, flax seed meal,maple syrup, and cashew butter, and a spinach,pear, and chia seed smoothie.

morning snack - rice cakes with tahini-miso spread.

lunch -butternut squash soup and sprouted grains toast with mashed avocado.

afternoon snack - apple cinnamon walnut uncookies.

We haven't had it yet, but for dinner we're having kasha with caramelized onions, roasted root vegetables, and sauteed collard greens. And yay! for dessert a little blueberry hand pie.

No way I could fast until 1:00! I'm impressed by the will power there!

Breakfast: soy sausage, tater tots, and a Diet Coke : (yes, it was one of those mornings)

Lunch: leftover lentil and carrot stew over whole wheat couscous, steamed broccoli; a pear

Snacks: walnuts, dried apples, leftover pecan rice

Not sure what's for dinner (although I think it will involve kale and a butter lettuce/cucumber salad), but I have some orange-pecan muffins baking in the oven...yum.

I'm sick so I haven't eaten much today : I had a vanilla latte (soy milk) this morning, for lunch I had some rice noodle soup. For dinner I think I'm going to try to eat just some pasta with sauteed onions and mandarin oranges.

So far...(just had lunch)

organic coffee with soymilk frothed in the Vitamix
Hemp Plus granola with rice milk

a Trader Joe's Vegan Chocolate chip cookie
a few apple slices

Lunch: leftover Veggie Gumbo with brown rice (recipe from Vegan Planet) with Louisiana Hot Sauce. This came out great--love the okra, must grow some this summer.

And I will probably have another cookie in a minute(hey, it's Saturday!)

Dinner: No plans yet, but DH has requested a repeat of African Groundnut Stew, from The Voluptuous Vegan--really delicious recipe!

I had a momentary burst of energy so I made a lemon poppy seed loaf that has tahini, sesame seeds, flax seed and apricots in it. Looking forward to having some with a cup of tea when it's done.

I've had two wraps... one with refried beans (I'm on a refried beans kick), mashed roasted potatoes, and salsa, the other just with refried beans and salsa. Apple juice, and a lot of watermelon!

Here is my refried beans recipe...

2 large onions
2 tbs soy sauce
4 cloves garlic
1 large can dark beans, rinsed well
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/8 tsp cayenne (or to taste)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup olive oil

I puree the first 7 ingredients together, then heat the oil in a cast iron pan. I fry the bean mixture about 7-10 minutes, stirring every now and then. This is great in wraps!
