VEGAN SAUSAGE + PEPPERS
.
This is a classic turned vegan and healthy!!! I actually love sausage do being vegetarian / vegan can be hard … but this vegan sausage makes it so easy! It actually tastes just like sausage and browns amazingly. To add sweetness to this dish I added a few tablespoons of my date paste. The instructions to make date paste will be on my story. If you do not have dates you can use maple syrup or if you do not want any sweetness you can just use sriracha! If you want to make this the recipe will be below!
.
Recipe:
-1 pepper
-1 vegan sausage (from Trader Joe’s)
-1 tbsp tomato paste
-1/2 yellow onion
-2 tbsp date paste
-red pepper flakes
-salt + pepper
-drizzle of sriracha

“SOY CURLS AND BRUSSELS”
.
I don’t know about you, but I never heard of soy curls until recently and when I did I decided to purchase them on amazon right away! I will admit they sat in my pantry for about 2 months because I had no idea what to do with them, but recently I decided to open them up and give them a try and they are amazing! They are basically just soy protein shaped into chicken like pieces. All you do is soak them in water then either sauté them in a pan with oil or roast them in the airfryer like I did. Anyways, if you are interested in the recipe please scroll below:)
.
Reciped:
-Brussels
-soy curls
-sriracha
-broccoli (I used frozen)
-tamari
-salt and pepper
-sesame oil
-everything but the bagel seasoning
-cauliflower rice ( I didn’t have it, but it would be so good with this!)
*i just mixed everything together and roasted them in the airfryer for about 15 mins at 350! You can roast in the oven as well, but I recommend pan frying the soy curls if you don’t have an airfryer.

FIELD OF GREENS – Mexican quinua salad.
.
.
I will admit this is very similar to my previous Mexican bowl, but even so it has its own unique flavor (my cheesiness is a 10/10 today). Anyways this salad is basically the lighter and fresher version of the previous Mexican bowl, as well as the less spicy one + it has roasted cauliflower in it which is my favorite!! 🙂 see the recipe below!
.
.
.
Ingredients:
-paprika roasted sweet potato + cauliflower
-red onion (finely chopped)
-quinua
-corn (also roasted in paprika… can you notice a trend here lol)
-black beans
-arugula
***For the dressing I used my cilantro lime avocado dressing I have pre-made in the fridge! This is a super easy dressing to make all you need is
-1/2 avocado
-2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
-handful of cilantro
-1/2 can chickpeas
-splash of water
-1 / 2 lime squeezed
– salt
And you just blend these all up until it’s a liquid consistency! I do not recommend making too much of this though since it only stays in the fridge for a few days max since the avocado begins to brown making the dressing look super funky (but tbh it still tastes good)

FALL HARVEST STEEL CUT OATS
.
.
Nothing sets you up for a good morning like some steel cut oatmeal … high in protein, nutrients, and the perfect base for some even yummier ingredients! Even though it does not feel like fall, I am already in that fall mindset so I made this oatmeal slightly fallish (Ik that’s not a word lol) by adding cranberries, cinnamon, and pumpkin seeds! Check out the recipe below 🙂
.
.
Ingredients:
-steel cut oats
-dates
-dried cranberries
-almonds
-pumpkin seeds
– @arbonne vanilla protein powder
-honey (or agave)
-optional, but a great option, is to add quinua!
.
Instructions:
-heat up oats with water and add in some chopped dates, cranberries, and cinnamon. Heat in pot until creamy. Serve in a bowl and top with desired ingredients (such as these!) and drizzle with honey or agave. Super easy, so delish!!!!
