Eggplant Yassa with Chickpeas, Carrots & Lima Beans

Many thanks to Jainaba at Kitchens of Africa for the new recipes featuring their delicious peanut and onion simmer sauces!  I've been looking forward to making this dish because I LOVE eggplant.  It definitely lived up to my expectations - it was super delicious, chock full of veggies and the perfect amount of spicy.

My Progress!

I'm excited to share the before and after pictures below showing my progress over the past 7 months.  Since July 2012, Josh and I have been following a plant-based diet as well as exercising three to four times each week.

Falafel Pitas - another quick plant-based meal!

I came across these frozen Falafel burgers at Weaver Street Market recently, so we made falafel pitas for lunch today. They were very YUMMY and very quick!

Looking for a non-dairy yogurt alternative?

We've been trying to reduce our soy intake lately, so I've been hesitant to try some of the yogurt alternatives since they usually contain soy.  I found this peach Amande Almondmilk yogurt at Weaver Street market last week.  I was pleasantly surprised - it was very tasty!  The bonus is that it's completely vegan but it still contains the beneficial parts of yogurt - the live cultures and probiotics.  So, if you're plant-based or vegan and you love yogurt - you're in luck, because this is a great alternative!

Hello Comfort Food ~ Plant-Based Pot Pie

Let me start by saying, this is not a healthy recipe. But, since the weather has turned colder, I've been craving pot pie.  This recipe is completely plant-based and my very own creation.  Josh has rated this one of the best things I have ever made!
