If you look in the top right hand corner of my posts, there should be a link under my name to my blog entries - you'll have to scroll around to find it...I like to write.
Ranger- ya, I completely get what your saying. I found when I was eating vegetarian meal it felt like it was missing something. It makes sense to reinvent the meal instead of replacing or removing items. The Green Goddess Bowl looked yummy! Do you find prepping the meals time consuming? Do you prepare the food daily or weekly?
The meals can be time consuming but there are easier ways to prepare them than the way I do. I like everything fresh so I buy my vegetables and chop/cook as needed. Some of my vegan friends prefer the already chopped frozen or canned vegetables which saves on prep time.
Some meals are more complicated and take more time and others are lightning fast. Once you get the hang of cooking and making menus, it gets way easier. My first few months of cooking vegan were hard!! Now, I'll usually do a recipe one day and then use part of the leftovers for next day's meal. Last week I made cream corn, mashed potatoes and vegan sausages. The next day I used leftover mashed potatoes in my gardener's pie so I didn't need to peel, boil and mash the potatoes.
And I make one large meal per weekend. A huge pan of lasagna or a gardener's pie, then I freeze half and eat the rest throughout the week. My green goddess bowl should last me all week - I doubled the already massive recipe! That will be my main meals this week...the rest I'll supplement with green smoothies, veggie wraps, and other little, quick meals.
It takes some time figuring out how to cook and easiest way to prep, but overall I find it's not bad. Especially when you get to know the recipes you like and how quick they are. For days I don't have any time - like this week - I rely on my frozen meals. I also have a few pre-packaged meals like vegan tacquitos and pizzas for emergencies. Homemade hummus is always on hand, too.
