Healthy Meal Options - Transitioning to a Plant-Based Diet

Healthy Meal Options - Transitioning to a Plant-Based Diet

Guest Post By: Taryn Rasgon from www.vegetaryn.com

Many people strive to be healthy. One of the most common questions I get asked is, What do you eat in a day?If you are curious about transitioning to a whole foods, plant-based diet here are some snack & meal ideas to help you get started. 

BREAKFAST


AVOCADO & TOAST


Toast has always been an easy, quick breakfast that I can (literally) eat as I walk out the door. However, loading toast with butter is high in fat and not good for your health. Luckily, mother nature provided us an awesome naturalbutter, avocado. I love avocado & toast all by itself, but sometimes I spice it up with some lemon juice & chili flakes.
  
Ingredients
   Ezekiel Bread
   Avocado
   Pepper to taste
   Juice from 1/4 a lemon (optional)

Directions
1.     Toast bread.
2.     Spread avocado on toast.
3.     Add lemon juice & pepper.

SNACK


STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE


Who doesnt like a refreshing, strawberry banana smoothie? They are the best especially on hot summer days. Not to mention, smoothies are perfect for on-the-go situations!

Ingredients
   6 strawberries
   2 frozen bananas
   2 dates
   1 cup of almond milk

Directions
1.     Blend all ingredients in a Torrent™ blender until smooth or consistency of your liking.
2.     Enjoy!



LUNCH


BUFFALO CAULIFLOWER BITES


Ingredients:
     1/2 head of Cauliflower
     1/2 Cup of Flour (we used Garbanzo Flour to make them Gluten free!)
     1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
     1 Cup of Frank's Red Hot Sauce
     1/2 Cup of Water

Directions:
1.      Preheat oven to 450°
2.      Chop cauliflower in to bite sized pieces
3.      Mix flour, olive oil, Frank's Red Hot Sauce, and water in a large bowl
4.      Add cauliflower.
5.      Mix well.
6.      Spread evenly on a cookie sheet
7.      Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
8.      Enjoy!


SNACK


APPLES & ALMOND BUTTER


Apples and almond butter make a great pair. I personally love to dip green apples in almond butter, but try out a few different types of apples and find out what your favorite is!

Ingredients
    1 Apple
    2 Tbsp. of Almond Butter

Directions
1.      Slice apple.
2.      Scoop almond butter.
3.      Dip apple slices in almond butter
4.      Enjoy!




DINNER 


POTATO ENCHILADAS


INGREDIENTS:
    10 Ruby Gold Potatoes
    1 yellow onion
    crushed garlic
    2 tbsp. of almond milk
    wheat OR corn tortillas (corn for gluten-free)
    your favorite salsa (I used Hatch Valley Salsa from Trader Joe's)
    jalapeño slices
    smoke paprika

DIRECTIONS:
1.      Wrap potatoes in paper towel, wet the wrapped potatoes, and throw them in the microwave for 4-5 minutes. (Alternatively, you can boil the potatoes.
2.      Sauté onions & garlic.
3.      Mash cook potatoes in a large bowl.
4.      Add cooked sautéed onions & garlic.
5.      Mix potatoes, garlic, and onion together.
6.      Scoop 2-3 tbsp. of mixture onto tortilla, and roll tortillas up and place in baking pan.
7.      Top with your favorite salsa (I used a green tomatillo salsa).
8.      Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
9.      Enjoy!


For a more breaded texture, simply add more flour.
Try dipping them in vegan ranch dressing or other sauces.

One Pot Paleo + Exclusive Paleo Recipe

To set some things straight, a Paleo Diet is a diet based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans, consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit, and excluding dairy or grain products and processed food.  Here is a brief Eat / Don't Eat list, as stated by ThePaleoDiet.com

EAT:

  • Grass-produced meats
  • Fish/seafood
  • Fresh fruits and veggies
  • Eggs
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Healthful oils (Olive, walnut, flaxseed, macadamia, avocado, coconut)

DON’T EAT:

  • Cereal grains
  • Legumes (including peanuts)
  • Dairy
  • Refined sugar
  • Potatoes
  • Processed foods
  • Salt
  • Refined vegetable oils

A Paleo Diet is said to be beneficial because:

  • You will eat a clean diet without additives, preservatives, or chemicals.
  • You do get the anti-inflammatory benefit from the plant nutrients in fruits, vegetables, oils, nuts, and seeds.
  • You will be eating more iron through increased red meat intake.
  • You will have improved satiety — a feeling of fullness between meals, due to the higher intake of protein and fats.
  • Most people will lose weight primarily due to the limited food choices.

But, this still leaves the problem that home cooks face every day, What Should I Make For Dinner?

Jenny, from Paleo Foodie Kitchen, set out to to solve this problem...and, we think, she did a pretty great job!

Paleo cooking has never been so easy! In One-Pot Paleo, Jenny Castaneda shares delicious recipes for enticing Paleo meals that only require one pot, pan or bowl. That means tasty, filling Paleo meals without the mess. You'll spend less time cooking and cleaning and more time enjoying your meals.

One-Pot Paleo's casseroles, stir fries, bakes, broils, soups and stews are a mix of Paleo essentials like Pan Seared Steak, Portobello Sandwiches, Chicken Pesto Zucchini and Plantain Pizza, as well as dishes Jenny has gathered from around the globe, like Loaded Spanish Tortillas, Hawaiian Meatballs and Austrian Pancake Bites. One-Pot Paleo is all about convenience, and Jenny makes it easy for readers to determine which recipes contain potential allergens and how to swap ingredients to tailor meals to individual dietary restrictions and preferences.

Here is an exclusive Hatch Chile Turkey Stir Fry Recipe, you can only find here!



Serves: 4

3 hatch chilies, roasted, peeled and chopped*
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 sweet onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ lb white or baby bella mushrooms, quartered
2 yellow squash, sliced and quartered
1 lb ground turkey
6 tbsp coconut aminos
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper


* To roast hatch chilies, place them on the grill to cook for 5 minutes on each side over medium heat until the outside is slightly charred. As an alternative, chilies can also be roasted directly on a gas stovetop. It will take a little bit longer compared to the grill and make sure to flip the chilies every couple of minutes to cook evenly on all sides.

Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil on a skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic. Sauté until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add mushrooms and yellow squash. Sauté for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables have softened. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Heat the remaining 1 tbsp of coconut oil on the skillet. Add ground turkey and cook until browned. Return vegetables to the pan and add the hatch chilies. Season with coconut aminos, sea salt and black pepper. Mix well and cook for another 5-7 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse together.


Let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.

13 Delicious Ways to Cook Chayote

Chayote Squash 

Have you ever tried Chayote before? This squash is one of the most popular vegetables in Latin America and Asia and is quickly becoming a favorite in Europe as well. While you may never have noticed Chayote, now that you’re in the know you’ll see it most grocery stores. This summer, give this tasty squash a try. 

Chayote is a member of the gourd family (along with melons, cucumbers and squash). Like summer squash and zucchini, Chayote has a mild taste that serves as a delicious sponge for other flavors in cooked dishes. It’s perfect sauted, in soups, in stir-fries and baked. It can also be used raw like a cucumber, chopped, shaved thin for salads or even pickled—and yes, the seeds are edible. 


When you see Chayote in the store, look for smooth green skin and pick a chayote that feels heavy for its size. At home, keep the Chayote in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to one week, and use it! For recipe inspiration, check out the 13 ideas below, and let us know how it goes!
