We all see an awesome recipe and say, “I’m going to make that!” or “I’m going to start eating better!” and then most of the time we don’t…or at least that’s what I do.
Soooo…I have been doing my best to follow through with these promises.
When I first became vegetarian I was a total junk food veg head. Cereal all day everyday,unfrosted pop tarts, pasta, carbs, carbs, carbs, and not a lot of fruit or veggies. So here is a good tip for new vegetarians/vegans:
Prechop! Go to the store and buy all the fruits and veggies you tell yourself you’re going to eat and then take some time (15 minutes or so) when you get home to just prep them all at once so when you need them you can just grab and use them instead of having to wash, peel, seed,chop, and slice!
I love smoothies in the morning and don’t want to take a lot time to make them; I’m hungry NOW damn it! I just did it for my smoothie stuff but it’s great to do with onions, carrots, celery, even garlic (just store it in a tiny glass jar with some olive oil for the week).
Frozen bananas are the cool kids of smoothie ingredients. When I first tried this years ago, I just stuck a whole banana in the freezer. DUMB. You have to slice it and if they don’t touch when your freeze them it makes life much easier. Here I laid them out on a small cookie sheet and covered them with some parchment paper.
