I decided to recharge my body by eating vegan for 3 weeks and I loved it. But there are a few things I learned while eating vegan:
Cilantro makes everything better. It’s true.
Eating vegan is super affordable.
You don’t miss out on flavor.
So check out some of my favorite dishes I created during the challenge.
Thai Curry Tofu with Cilantro Lime Rice
I added a heaping bunch of cilantro for because it’s great for cleansing but mostly because I’m addicted to cilantro.
Fried Tofu Bites with Guacamole
Fried Tofu Bites with Guacamole was the appetizer that saved me when I was ready to throw in the towel. I was craving something fried and unhealthy but life is about balance. I paired my fried tofu with fresh, nutritious guacamole. Win!
Soba Noodles Tossed in Olive Oil with Garlic and Cherry Tomatoes
I channeled my inner Rachel Ray for this dish. It took me less than 30 minutes and I made sure to say “E-V-O-O Extra Virgin Olive Oil” every time I picked up the bottle of oil. Quick and easy!
Overall, I felt lighter and less tired. Usually around 2pm I’m reaching for my second cup of green tea but eating vegan helped me to stay more alert during the day. Eating vegan always helps me to explore new food options while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
