Happy Wednesday. Let's talk about healthy food...and Halloween. I'm not one of those super disciplined people who can avoid consuming the Halloween treats. My strategy at Halloween (and pretty much every other day) is to eat healthy meals to balance out my chocolate indulgences.
Besides, I actually love healthy meals, especially when someone else prepares them! For example, my husband made me this broccoli pizza on Sunday.
He also made a delicious pasta, cannellini bean and vegetable soup.
On Monday evening, my son wanted spring rolls. Not the healthiest thing on the dinner menu, but that's okay. We also had kamut udon noodles with a stir-fry of veggies and tofu in teriyaki sauce.
My Tuesday meals began with my latest favourite breakfast option. I probably should be having more protein at breakfast, but I just don't feel like eating much in the morning. So, I've been having Pita Break muesli morning rounds (toasted) with margarine and a cinnamon/sugar mixture on top.
For Tuesday's lunch, I had leftover noodles with a mixed greens salad topped with pecans, dried cranberries, strawberries and an olive oil vinaigrette.
My husband had a craving for tofu loaf last night. Lucky for me, because he made dinner again. He served the loaf with roasted potatoes and acorn squash topped with pecans. We ran out of margarine (from me and the kids eating that margarine/cinnamon/sugar topping so frequently) so he put coconut oil in the centre of the squash (with brown sugar). It took some getting used to but I kind of liked it.
I also created some vegan Mexican recipes this week. Check those out here.
How are you planning to address cravings for Halloween sweets?
