Hey FitFeat friends!
Remember when all I did was post about my food? Ah, the good ol’ days. I think of them often and fondly. How about a few food pics to show you some recent eats? Just so you don’t think I’m still living off of leftover Easter creme eggs or something!
This was a HUGE Mediterranean lunch salad I made at home with grape tomatoes, Kalamata olives, cucumber, chickpeas, chopped mixed greens, dulse, nutritional yeast, red onion and a red wine vinaigrette.
Some recent recipe testing yielded this Wasabi Slaw salad that I’ve since added to my personal chef library – I love all the colors in this one! Red cabbage, dino kale, red onion, red bell pepper, sesame seeds and a wasabi dressing. One of my new favorites!
During an evening of recipe testing, I was making seitan skewers over cauliflower & quinoa ‘rice’ with a tandoori-style dressing. Cory and I both loved the skewers with the ‘rice’ but the sauce still needs work.
The next day I repurposed two different sets of leftovers into a collard leaf wrap. Half of the leftovers were the seitan and ‘rice’ from above and the other half were from a vegetarian antipasto appetizer plate I’d brought home from a local Italian restaurant (roasted asparagus, mushrooms, peppers, etc.). It worked!
Sunday afternoon we hit up one of our favorite sushi restaurants where I had my usual: a seaweed salad and some sort of veggie roll. This time I tried the asparagus tempura roll. Delish! Seaweed salad is something that I have yet to make taste like it does in a restaurant. Think they’d let me come watch & take notes for a few days?
I am still in the process of drafting my post about my thoughts on VegFest – I hope to set some time aside to get it wrapped up in the next day or so. I should probably change that old header up there while I’m at it – that haircut was from November of last year! Yikes! Apparently I could desperately use some people to donate time for dishwashing and blog updates! Have a great day friends!
