I eat to live and I live to eat

For me, food can do anything. Food can make a person feel better when they are down. Food can invoke memories that can make you grin like you haven't grinned since you were 7 years old. Food can be an expression of love or remorse.

Every time I eat, I eat with purpose. If you feel good about what you are eating and you enjoy it, you will find yourself much more satisfied. Most people do not realize how unsatisfied they are until they truly become satisfied.

I love what I eat. I know that I am completely satisfied with my diet. 

Today for breakfast I had "scrambled eggs". This is a very simple recipe saute an onion with a small can of drained corn. Once the onion is translucent crumble in 12 oz of extra firm tofu.

Mid Morning Snack: 2oz of vegan sausage; 1/4 of a sweet potato; 1 small apple

Lunch: Vegan No Meatloaf; roasted carrots; roasted brussel sprouts

Snack: 1 small apple

Dinner: Vegan Chick'N Parmesean- As an extremely busy, single mom on a budget this is one of my favorites. Tonight I used 1/2 cup of quinoa (quinoa is a grain and is the only complete protein on the planet; it can be used as a healthier substitution in any recipe that calls for rice or pasta) 1/4 cup of jarred spaghetti sauce; 2 Vegan Boca "chicken" Nuggets (this is .5 a serving) It's so delicious and at less than 275 calories it's the perfect "after workout" meal!

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
