I decided to start my day with a lower carb breakfast. I’m trying to come up with some yummy low-carb options because I’ve become painfully aware of my carb addiction. I still love you, carbs.
Broccoli Tofu Scramble
1 cup broccoli, chopped into tiny pieces
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
1/2 package soft tofu (you can use an entire package if you want more protein)
1 1/2 tsp vegan butter
suggested spices: turmeric (provides the yellow color), garlic powder, cilantro, cayenne pepper, and paprika
Start by chopping the onion, garlic, and broccoli.
I’ve been trying to use up a lot of the canned/dried foods I’ve managed to pack-rat away. Today I wanted something quick and filling after my run. It’s kind of a gloomy day here (which means I can see a cloud), so I decided to make chili! This takes all of 20 minutes to make and it’s chock full of protein and warm happy feelings (cayenne pepper)!
14 oz Vegan Ground “Beef”
2 cups (or 1 can) beans (kidney beans or red beans)
3 cups tomato sauce
3-4 garlic cloves, diced
recommended spices: cayenne pepper, black pepper, mustard, paprika, cilantro, and garlic
Start by sauteing the garlic (use a tiny amount of vegetable oil) in a large saucepan. Add the “beef” and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Next add the tomato sauce, corn, and beans. Mix well then add the spices. Cayenne pepper makes it spicy, so add it slowly while stirring the chili until it reaches the level of spiciness you want.
You can let it simmer for a while, or serve it immediately!
I will now leave you with a cute video of our kitten playing fetch. Both our cats play fetch, it’s weird. By weird I mean cute.
Have a good day!
