QUARANTINE PLANT BASED MEAL PLANPacer Kristen
Hard times call for unexpected FUN!
Cookies for breakfast are exactly what’s in order on a quarantined rainy Florida (or snowy northern) day!
My kids thought I’d lost my mind when I added COOKIES to the meal plan, but these are secretly loaded with healthy fats, protein, no refined sugars or flour, and only quality ingredients that are deserving of a spot on the breakfast table.
And with all meals, my Breakfast Cookies are just a template. Please use these recipes as a guide and make practical substitutes to maintain texture and flavors.
- No peanut butter (or allergies)? Use almond butter!
- No fresh tomatoes? Used canned!
- No Boston Lettuce? (of course not!)…Use romaine lettuce!
- No Kale? Use Spinach!
- No Chickpea Pasta? Use whole wheat pasta!
- No pepitas (pumpkin seeds)? Use slivered almonds!
You get the idea! You spin the creativity with what’s on hand! That’s how your Grandmother “rolled,” and it’s how she learned to put meals together in a pinch! Embrace the goodness of these quarantined times!
I can’t wait to hear which meal you liked best. The African Peanut and Sweet Potato Stew was a family favorite for my tribe! Please share a photo to your FB page and tag me with your review!
