Happy Friday! I’m excited about this series “What We Eat” on the blog! I’ve been getting a TON of questions about my meals on Snapchat, where I post my daily meals! (LivinginColorL). We are newly vegan, and I’m loving it. Grace has never had any animal products so I was very confident in my decision to transition my husband and I after watching Forks Over Knives. But I’m not hear to talk about veganism though…not today at least! I’m just hear to share some DELICIOUS recipes that I’ve tried lately! You can use dairy products in them if you like or add in a meat very easily, but these are all vegan by nature. Oh, and my one-year-old eats ALL of these things. She loves it all!
Lunch: Creamy pasta dish inspired by this recipe, but I changed a few things…
I used coconut cream instead of heavy cream, didn’t add parmesan,
and used the noodles I had in the pantry. Also added fresh tomato and hemp hearts.
Basically I made it more vegan-friendly. It is delicious though!
Lunch: Fresh cucumber, green bell pepper, romaine lettuce/avocado rolls w/ hemp seeds dipped in some delicious hummus. I ate this whole plate and Grace helped me!

Lunch: Raw veggies with avocado and roasted chickpeas (recipe below)
-1 can garbanzo beans

-1 tbsp. olive oil
-Preheat oven to 400 F.
-Coat garbanzo beans with olive oil in a bowl
