Big news, this gal is in the middle of her first menstrual cycle in 2 years! Success! First time I was this happy to start my menses. Now to keep things as healthy as possible so I can hopefully see a regular cycle and return to doing all the things I love.
Edamame mash sandwich – Open faced because the last time I made this all the filling just squished out of it.
Garlic buckwheat noodles with leftover seitan meatballs and a pear with peanut butter – As seen on Instagram, I made this with the leftover garlic sauce from the pizza last week and then the few meatballs I had leftover from our subs this week. Yum!
Grilled cheese and tomato soup – testing out the soup I frozen to have while my in-laws are in town.
Mushroom seitan meatball marinara sandwich – I had been craving a meatball sub since July and had been really wanting to use the vital wheat gluten I picked up to try my hand at making seitan. A lot easier than I thought and my partner did not want to admit how much he liked it.
Leftover Naan bread with salad – I added some mozzarella cheese to the naan and then made a salad from the ingredients I picked up from the farmer’s market for a quick dinner.
Southern green beans and Asian fusion Barley salad – The later is another test recipe and it was not loved in this house… I was not sure what to serve with the test recipe, so I tried out another side I thought looked interesting. My partner and I enjoyed the Southern green beans, he especially loved the mushroom bacon.
Prunes and other fruit – I had pears and a peach
Silken Tofu Mousse – So much healthier than traditional mousse. I just drained the silken tofu (the more water you can get out of it the better) + cacao powder + stevia/sweetener of choice blended well in my high speed blender.
