Sunday pancakes.

Found this at Vons. It's vegan and whole grain, just what I needed. The mix requires milk and an egg. I subbed cashew milk and chickpea water (3 TB for 1 egg).

Came out fluffy and tender!

Homemade date syrup. 9 dates soaked in 1 1/4 cup boiling water for 1 hour then blended. Then simmered on stovetop until dark caramelly brown!

Also poured some maple syrup because I love maple flavor.

Cheater Lentil & Sausage Stew.

I was craving something warm and comforting today. I made the stew by sautéing onions, celery and carrots then added to it, 2 sliced Field Roast sausages and one small carton of store bought lentil soup (O Organics). I seasoned with Hp sauce, soy sauce and black pepper. I let it simmer until vegetables were cooked. Served with yummy mash.

These are the Life Changing seed crackers recipe from here:

They are fantastic! The crunch is amazing! I am so happy munching on these. Trying to stay away from white crackers and white bread because of blood sugar issues. 

Served with creamy hummus and tomato olive roasted pepper bruschetta.


Lunch at Tacomiendo!
