I absolutely loved the taste of this dish. It was very quick & simple to make. I used Smart Life Chicken Strips and about 1/2 cup of all natural BBQ sauce, added some minced garlic, red bell peppers & cilantro. There was no need for me to add any natural seasonings. It blended perfectly! We enjoyed it over some Organic brown rice. Excellent for an entree' or quick meal.

I try and think of different meals to make for My Family. I had some Gardein Vegan Steaks in my freezer and some sweet petite peas. With coming up with the concept, I kept thinking "Menudo." I didn't think about the potatoes, until I glanced over at our fruit bowl. I had a bag of Organic red baby potatoes. Vegan potato beef it was! :)

After a long day at my Daughters dance rehearsal, we enjoyed some Vietnamese cuisine together. While waiting for our food, I was looking out the window and saw an Asian Supermarket. We decided to check it out after dinner. It was surprisingly bigger than I had thought. They had a variety of fresh Asian vegetables. I picked up some baby eggplant, bak choy, camote leaves & some korean peppers.
This is what I made with the ingredients I purchased from the Asian supermarket, on Eastern avenue and Pebble.
Vegan black pepper steak (Whole Foods), Bak Choy & Baby Eggplant Heat garlic oil in a pan, cook vegan steaks as directed on package. Add eggplant and stir til' cooked (don't overcook). Then stir in Bak Choy (don't overcook). No need to season, due to the sauce of the vegan steaks. I don't like my vegetables well done, I still like a crisp texture. Enjoy over Brown Rice!

I came across some Vegan chicken patties in my local Albertsons (Yves Brand). I usually get the Quoron crispy chicken burgers, but these looked soo much fresher. After a evening jog and workout, I was starved and wanted something light and quick. I decided to make some chicken burgers on some multi-grain thin buns I had in the cupboard. It was better than I had anticipated!
EASY AS THAT!

It's a meal you will enjoy, less than 30 minutes!

I know its been awhile since I've last updated. I've been consumed with activities and my kids. I had some orzo sitting in my cupboard, and wasn't too sure what I was going to do with it. I first was going to attempt a lemon orzo soup, but didn't have any broth at the time. I had tomato sauce that I purchased from whole foods, so decided to make a creamy pasta.

Why I choose to shop at Farmers Market!
I was first introduced to the Farmers Market at a very young age. My parents loved to start our weekend mornings with fresh produce shopping, under the bridge of Alameda, California. I loved the experience of seeing different vendors, it almost reminded me of a flea market. It didn't compare to shopping at a regular grocery store, due to the lack of variety in produce. At the Farmers Market, you get that one on one time with the actual farmers, which often lead to great deals. You get to know them on a different and personal level, and all the proceeds go directly to them. They can be more cost effective than most regular grocery stores, also without the added pesticides. Grocery stores don't give you the freshness you're looking for vs. the Farmers Markets, which supply you with organic produce and specialty items. Within the vicinity of the Farmers Market, they have different local shops and other vendors, such as fresh herbs, treats, and unique products. So it's no secret where to do your produce shopping, go to your local Farmers Market and support local farmers! Shop at Fresh52 Farmers Market.

I was craving for tofu and some sausage. I thought I would mix the two and add some fresh cilantro. It was really fulfilling and delicious. I served it with a side of fresh, sliced strawberries!

After a LONG day with my kids and working out, I was starved! I didn't feel like cooking something that was time consuming. I decided to make turkey tacos, something quick and easy! I usually make tacos with vegan beef grounds, never with turkey. I enjoyed it more with turkey grounds, it was very delicious, yet nutritious. We are very festive, so I put them on some Valentine's day plates.
