RECIPES:

Broccoli Cheese Soup:
1/2 small white onion, diced
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 1/2 cups broccoli, chopped into bite-size pieces
1 tbsp oil or vegan butter for cooking onion & carrots
2 tbsp vegan butter
3 tbsp flour – all purpose or brown rice flour (gluten free) work
1 1/2 cups almond or other non-dairy milk
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 cup vegan cheddar shreds or 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Heat pot on medium. Add oil and saute onions and carrots for 5 minutes until onions are translucent. Put into a bowl and set aside. Add vegan butter to the pot and wait for it to melt. Add the flour and whisk to combine into a paste. Slowly add the almond milk a little bit at a time, whisking so it stays a smooth consistency. Keep whisking on the heat until it thickens. Then add the vegetable stock and veggies including the broccoli and the spices. Simmer on low heat for 20 mins. Add the cheese and stir until it melts. Serve hot with bread on the side or put it in a thermos to take for lunch!

Wrap (makes 2 wraps)
Tahini Sauce:
2 tbsp tahini or peanut butter
2 tbsp coconut milk
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp maple syrup or sugar
1 tbsp warm water

1 medium sweet potato, cooked and mashed (use 1/2 for each wrap)
1/2 cup dry quinoa + 1 cup water (cook this according to the package directions)
greens
2 whole wheat wraps

Stir sauce ingredients together. Add 1 tbsp extra warm water if it is too thick. Assemble the wraps, mashing 1/2 of the sweet potato onto each.

Overnight Oats
1/3 cup dry oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
2/3 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk

  2. For the sweet potato wrap can you use regular potatoes like red potatoes? I happen to be allergic to sweet potato that's why I am wondering.

  4. wow meal #2 was like 90% carbs… I know carbs aren't the enemy, but surely a nutritionist would put together a more balanced meal? I mean sweet potato, a tortilla, quinoa, oats, fruit, AND a clif bar loaded with sugar???
