Welcome! Glad you came by to check out today’s vegan meals. It was a pretty simple day of WIAW eats. But, sometimes simple is so good.
Breakfast of champs again. Buttery avocado smashed on lightly toasted rye with Celtic sea salt and cracked pepper.
On the side, my everyday favorite, Organic Sumatra Reserve slightly sweetened with coconut creamer.
Since I ate pretty early and did an intense workout, by 10:30am, I was starving. I had a cup of my veggie soup that I made yesterday. It is what I call my “cleanse” soup, because it is so loaded with veggies and beans. Then I had a bigger bowl for lunch. It was full of flavor and hearty, if it was not WIAW, I probably would have had it for dinner as well.
I had an afternoon snack. Sweet and tart organic Pink Lady apple. This one had a crisp bite. I ate half and saved half for Mya.
I planned on making pizza flats for dinner on these new Flat-out crusts I found. Check them out.
Only 150 calories for 1 whole flat, and they were big! 7 grams of protein too!
I decided on cashew cheese for a topping instead of store bought vegan cheese. I soaked my cashews in water for a few hours, drained, and rinsed, then put them into the Vita-mix.
I added two small cloves of garlic, sea salt, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, nutritional yeast and then blended. It turns into a thick raw cheese that cooks up so creamy.
While the oven preheated, I precooked my toppings, mushrooms, onions, and asparagus. I also opened a can of black olives to share between the pizza and salad.
I cooked the flats a few minutes before dressing them with sauce, cashew cheese, mushrooms, onions, asparagus and olives.
The cashew cheese gets bubbly and golden.
A nice simple salad with vinaigrette on the side. I wish it was not dark outside when the pizza was done, the light just does not do it justice.
Mya has a new partner in reading homework…
Every night Prince jumps up and wraps himself behind her when she is reading. He does it to me a night in the office, he doesn't know he is over 50lbs. when he jumps up on my lap every night!
Could you say no to that face?
I have a bonus meal to share. We had pizza on Sunday too. Quite the opposites of the flats we had tonight. I brought home dough from the bakery and made pan pizzas in my cast iron pans. OMG! Deep dish heaven. I would only eat this as a special occasion because it is white dough, but it was pretty heavenly. Crisp on the bottom and pillow like on top. Pure heaven!
Mya said it was the best pizza she ever ate! What kind of pizza do you like? Thick or thin?
Have a great day and come back soon!
