Tofu X 2

Wow – today FLEW by! I remember looking at the clock at 4 and thinking “Where did this day go?”

First, J and I went grocery shopping this morning. We were both still in our sweats, too. Love!

Either you are a person who hates it when people wear sweats/yoga pants out in public or you love it. I am 100% for it! =)

I bought some of the basic’s – fruit, veggies and some meal planner items – tofu, beans, jalapeño and portabella mushrooms. I made a vegan lasagna today and I have been craving chili so I am also planning on making a crock pot full. I love making large family size dishes so I can have plenty to eat during the week. Plus I buy only a few vegetables at a time and plan my meals around them. This week I bought asparagus, red bell pepper, carrots and spinach. I have other veggies here already but it’s always nice to mix it up.

I was STARVING by the time we made it home. I was craving a tofu scramble, so while I was putting my groceries away I was also cooking. Talk about multi tasking!

I sautéed some onion and red bell pepper in olive oil until they were caramelized. Then added about 1/3 of a block of tofu with some turmeric and salt and pepper. I topped it with avocado, cilantro and Cholula.

It hit the spot!

After I put J down I was in the kitchen making my lasagna. I adapted the recipe from The Vegan Table’s Tofu Spinach Lasagna recipe.

The tofu ricotta turned out great but I added a lot more seasonings then the original recipe called for. The assembly was the same as a meat lasagna: sauce, noodle, “ricotta”, repeat. Bake for 30 minutes and TA-DA!

I had some for lunch, and J loved it too! Thank goodness! =)

One tip that I do want to mention is that I always heat and season my sauce before adding it. I make most of my meals from scratch but I am guilty of buying jarred pasta sauce. However, I like to always add my personal touch and taste to suit my tongue and the dish. For this lasagna I added some olives for texture and sun dried tomatoes for taste. NOTHING beats a great tasting sauce! 

I also had an apple for dessert.

Then we were off to the chiropractor again. He said everything was looking great, healing nicely. It still is very tender when I walk but I can tell a HUGE difference! He wants me to walk for an hour tomorrow and see him on Thursday to talk about running. I am starting to freak out about my running! But I have to keep telling myself that I need to heal properly and not injure myself any worse. =(    

Dinner was a huge bowl of raw goodness!

Romaine, red bell pepper, toasted pine nuts, fresh basil, avocado, a splash of EVOO and white onion, along with a rosemary cracker. Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day! =)

    I too am 100% for sweats at the grocery store. WTH should care really?!I do believe there is an extent though, like I refuse to wear my gray hoodie that has paint, holes and the front pocket is ripping off… I will switch to a more presentable looking hoodie before leaving, wouldn't want someone to think I was a homeless person! lol!Glad your back is doing better!!
