Real food for a real girl

Plant-based, vegan
Real Girl Food.  That's what I eat everyday.  You can do it, too.  Delicious, whole, fresh & power packed with goodness.  And lots & LOTS because I am a hungry, hungry girl!

One of the great things about eating plant-based, no-oil, whole-grain is that you can feed that appetite and not worry about the calorie counts.  Your body just knows how to use the nutrients you eat and finds its own level for weight.  Here's a quote from Ann Esselstyn*, "The basic message is simple--and welcome to so many who have battled weight all their lives: when you eat a plant-based, no-oil, whole grain diet your body will find its own weight.  You never have a weight problem.  Let you appetite be your guide!"

Pictured above:
  •  Far Left: Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus open-faced sandwich with grilled red onions on Ezekiel Sprouted Whole Grain bread garnished with fresh tomatoes, carrot matchsticks and balsamic  glaze.
  • Top Right: Corn Tacos filled with left-overs garnished with fresh salsa, sweet corn and spinach from my garden.
  • Mid-Right: Assorted spring greens salad with cukes, matchstick carrots, sweet corn, fresh tomato wedges, granny smith apple slices and edamame.  Fat-free Raspberry and Balsamic vinaigrettes mixed together for dressing.
  • Bottom Right: Sweet Pea Hummus on whole-grain sprouted bread sticks garnished with granny smith apple slices and pickled sushi ginger.  Served with oven-roasted Brussel sprouts glazed with Bragg's Liquid amino and balsamic vinegar.
All of these meals took about 20 minutes or less to pull together. I can help you out!
