#soundssofancy ๐ŸŒฟDinner took less than 5 minutes to prep; I discovered farro & red quinoa at Costco, mixed it into sweet kale salad mix, and topped it with crunchy freeze-dried blueberries and oil-free poppyseed dressing. Then 1 minute in the microwave to wilt it slightly. Hearty and sweet ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

Pizza night! Pretty good stuff going on over here: leftover green sauce was the perfect setting for artichoke hearts, tomatoes, kale mix, and mushrooms. Topped with balsamic and all on an Engine 2 crust. Superb flavor and really satisfying, PLUS quick and easy๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป#oilfreeveganpizza #plantbasedpizza ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

A nice big lunch today, as I didn’t feel hungry at breakfast time. Frozen cooked sweet potatoes and corn added to @yourtaylorfarms stir fry kit. Why yes, I did eat the whole bag myself ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

When I first gave up dairy, I missed my daily cold cereal with milk. Almond milk just tasted weird, so I switched to oatmeal instead. Now that it’s been a couple of years with no dairy, my tastes have really changed and I recently discovered that almond milk on cereal is now an awesome flavor! This is E2 Rip’s Big Bowl with Thrive Life freeze-dried blueberries, mangoes, and strawberries added. Super satisfying ๐Ÿฅฃ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

Another test kitchen, haha. Spanish Paella from Forks Over Knives ๐Ÿด This new flavor was a hit with everyone, even the little ones, which was nice because the other FOK kits have all been a bit too spicy for us. I used all shelf stable ingredients instead of the fresh veggies called for, as the most likely times I’ll use these kits is when I’m out of fresh food. Thumbs up from me ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ

Trying out Engine 2’s hot cereal, Rip’s Power-Up Bowl. It’s pretty good, though you could easily make this mix of grains yourself. It would be handy to have along while traveling, as it’s easy to make in the microwave. They also have a double berry flavor, but I tried the original and added my own frozen blueberries after cooking—you don’t think I put in too many, do you? ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ
