I learned sooooo many things by doing this project. I LOVE brussels sprouts and collard greens! That alone just floors me! I CAN cook great tasting/ healthy food! And I learned by doing and taking action. Dr. Fuhrman is telling the truth when he says that you will not lose pleasure in life by eating this way. I swear--I just did not believe him until now. Salt is not necessary in life! Adding salt does not "bring out the flavor of food" but rather it brings out the flavor of salt! bleah! It is important to add side dishes and desserts to your life. They make the meal sooooooooo much more pleasurable and satisfying. DON'T skip the side dishes and desserts!!
Monday I will start blogging Chef AJ's DVD called Healthy Made Delicous. Chef AJ is a vegan chef from Los Angeles. This will be a short 3-day project. Her recipes look fabulous--can't wait to get started! Check out this clip of AJ making her yummy Lentil Loaf! This is a sneak preview of her awesome DVD. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABtdPdkBhro
So here are the recipes that I missed making over the last month. Hope this is everything!!
Creamy Greeny Blended Salad
I made this two ways--once with spinach only, once with spinach and romaine (like the recipe says). I liked it better with spinach only--it's amazing how well you can hide the taste of spinach! But as is I gave it a B so it was pretty good! I told Haze he had to taste it and he goes, "I'm all good!" He is a chicken! He just doesn't like the juices or smoothies that are green colored--but that's ok. He loves the Eat Your Greeens Smoothie--so I'm all good!!
Mishmash Salad with Orange Cashew Dressing
Spinach and Brussels Sprouts Delight
Neither of us liked any of the cashew/ orange type dressings--just not our taste. So for this salad I made the Cashew Currant Dressing and it was wonderful!! We loved the mishmash part!! We gave it an A- I LOVED the Spinach and Brussels Sprouts Delight!! I just can't believe how much I love brussels sprouts now!! I gave this dish an A+/ Haze said A-/B+ It makes a really good lunch with a nice big salad. Love the tomatoes and onions--I will be making this one lots!
Vegetable Shepherds Pie
When I was making this, I thought it did not look very tasty. But it was surprisingly good! I made half with white potatoes for Haze and he loved it! I didn't have any tofu so I added red beans instead. It was very good!! We both gave it an A-
Sooooo simple, and soooooooo good. I don't know what happens to bananas when they get all warm, but it totally turns them into a dessert! This is a totally feel good dessert--really pretty too. This totally tasted like cobbler!! Yum!! We gave it an A
