Meatless Monday and the Start of Vegan Month of Food
I don't really have a theme for Vegan Month of Food, but I will be focusing on one meal per week, the meals will be quick, easy and with as little processed food as I can manage so there won't be many veggie burger, Tofurky, or cheese substitute type recipes). When I first tried to go vegan a few years ago I thought being vegan was far less healthy than being vegetarian, and that vegans ate nothing but soy burgers and fake cheese. I have learned otherwise and this month I hope to share what I have learned. This week is Vegan Breakfasts, then I will feature Vegan Lunches, then Suppers, and lastly, my favorite, Vegan Desserts. Happy Eating!
Today for breakfast is Cream of Wheat-okay not terribly exciting, but yes it is vegan. When I was growing up my mom would always make it with milk and egg added in. These days I use plain soy or almond milk and omit the egg. Today I chose banana and blueberries as toppings. It only takes about ten to fifteen minutes to prepare and the Bumper loves it.
