Menu plan

OK here is the menu plan I've come up with.

Breakfasts (make double or triple when possible, for busy days):
I like to have a big serving of soy for breakfast, it's also a great time to get in oats and flax!

Oatmeal w/ frozen berries, flax meal and soymilk
Oat flour/flax waffles with fruit and soymilk
Tofu scramble on corn tortillas
Hash brown potatoes with crumbled homemade soy sausage
Polenta squares with fruit and soymilk
Low fat-low sugar homemade granola with dried fruit and flax, with soymilk

Dinners (make enough for dinner AND lunch the following day!):
I really tried to get in a lot of soup, every other day! It's healthy, filling, and you can throw all kids of veggies in that you have on hand.

Tacos - lentils, taco spices, veggies & salsa on corn tortillas

Split pea soup w/ roasted herby potatoes

Curry - chickpeas, tomatoes, veggies (cauliflower and peas!), curry powder, over brown rice

Chili - pinto beans, textured soy flour, tomatos, onions, peppers, chili spices, with polenta squares

Spaghetti - whole wheat noodles, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, onions, peppers, spices, soy crumbles, always serves with green beans :-)

Black bean chipotle soup - with tomatoes, carrots, cumin, onions, peppers and celery.. sooo good, serve with brown rice or polenta squares

Brown rice, chickpeas, green veggies (broccoli!) and tahini dressing

Minestrone soup: onions, peppers, celery, carrots, tomatoes, green beans, squash, brown rice, an Italian herbs.

Black beans and veggies (and possibly Spanish rice) on corn tortillas

Vegetable stew, chock full of potatoes, carrots, celery, corn, peas, beans, mushrooms, caramelized onions in a thick broth

Veggie burger patties (homemade), carmelized onions and mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans and corn

Multi-bean soup with celery, carrots, onions, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes

Veggie lo mein: whole wheat spaghetti, mixed frozen stir-fry veggies, cabbage, soy sauce, sesame oil, mustard, molasses, and chili paste

Chickpea soup with brown rice, onions, garlic, green veggies and nutritional yeast


Unfortunately I may I have to quit my job in order to have time to cook.

Maybe not so unfortunately. :-)
