2 weeks no meat!

Ive been having fun cooking lately! Thats never happened to me! I normally hate cooking so I avoid it as much as possible and just eat whatever Ty is having...Well theres no way he will ever go without meat so I have started looking up recipes and cooking for myself. And its been fun!! Its awesome when you work for a while on something and it actually comes out soooo tasty...even Ty likes what I've been making. In addition to these photos I have been making soups. I love my veggie soups! I have learned that you saute the herbs and veggies before adding the vegetable stock and let it simmer. They have been turning out pretty good! I use carrots, potato, onion, zucchini, butternut squash and whatever else I have around here. For protein I add chickpeas or lentils and lots of spinach...quinoa...
What my soup looks like before adding the stock...
First day of eating healthier...oatmeal w blueberries and an egg...wasnt that great honestly..i like my oats with honey and cinnamon and whatever fruit

Breakfast bruschetta ...eggs, tomato,fresh basil on a toasted pumpernickel slice 

PIZZA!!!!! It was so good! used a piece of naan bread as the crust and made my own marinara sauce...added fresh tomato, mushroom, jalapenos, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil on top w fresh grated Parmesan 

This hot mess looks weird but it tasted so good! I had ty grill my eggplant and tomato slices alongside his steak. I crumbled feta on top and reduced a balsamic sauce for topping. Brushed the eggplant and tomato with olive oil, salt and pepper and thyme before putting on the grill. Then made some couscous and sauteed veggies for a side.

One of my go to favs is this grilled or roasted portobello mushroom. I just top it with salt and pepper and thin slice of cheese. Then top it off with tomato and basil....roasted veggies on the side.

First meatless dish I made was pasta with a mushroom marina recipe...i got the recipe from the back of a can of stewed tomatoes lol....but added fresh diced tomato, feta and olives on top...
