Looking on the ‘net for ideas, this image above is where I found my inspiration for my laundry/half bath, with a twist. So what I think you’ll learn, as I did, is to use the Weight Watchers point system as a guide, a great starting point, but not to obsess whether the specific values are right on, or not, ESPECIALLY for what is obviously a low-calorie healthful soup or salad or whatever.
I didn’t have any leftovers for lunch today, but I have all kinds of things in my fridge/freezer to throw together a random meal, like this Tempeh Peanut Veggie Bowl. I loaded up on jars of Nacho Mom’s vegan queso, Frog Hollow chocolate bars, and various other goodies that can’t be found in Santa Cruz.
It goes without saying that Mr. Vegan Eats & Treats was duly impressed with these magical tacos. From tostada stacks to pasta dishes and so much more, these lunch recipes are tasty and filling. The magic of these is the apple purée (or shop-bought apple sauce as I use for convenience) which makes a great egg replacer in all sorts of vegan recipes, as well as providing an apple-y sweetness to go with the blackberries here.
Even with the stress of candy-making, I still make these magical treats every year because they are absolutely amazing: the cooking brittle toasts the slivered almonds for a sweet and toasty flavor, along with a generous blast of saffron soaked in rose water, and the pistachios on top.
My friend Christy was so sweet – she picked me up at the airport and transported me to two of Austin’s most important vegan destinations: The Vegan Nom taco truck and Capital City Bakery – conveniently located right down the street from one another.
