Breakfast: PB&J Oatmeal with Kumquats
This is super easy, a frozen berry oatmeal dish with lots of different toppings including kumquats. Your choice of frozen of fresh berries, and stir in some peanut butter or your favorite nut-butter!
Lunch: Kimchi Fried Rice with Bok Choy
It’s nice to switch things up! I don’t often choose kimchi but I really enjoy this recipe. I added extra veggies because veggies=life.
✶ Recipe adapted from The First Mess
Snack: Breakfast Cookies
I took this recipe from a cookbook but if you search for “Vegan and Gluten-Free Breakfast Cookies” something similar will pop up. I like to add in chia seeds, hemp seeds, and pepitas to really bulk them up if the recipe doesn’t already call for them.
Dinner: Italian Tofu
Marinated tofu, baked, Oh My Veggies has a great recipe on their blog “Baked Italian Herb Tofu” served over chickpea pasta with *veggie heavy* marinara. I sauté frozen veggies and add jarred marinara for a quick and easy veggie heavy sauce. I also air-fry the tofu to re-heat it, sorted!
Note: These meals lay the foundation for my week. I am never limited to just these meals and I always keep extra items on hand for additional snacks or meals.
