Eating Vegan

Try Eating Vegan One Day Per Week

In doing the Ultimate Reset I went totally vegan for a little over two weeks of the program’s 21 days.  This week I’ve been doing a 6 day “mini-reset” (2 days from each of the 3 phases) and am feeling pretty good.  A lot of diet books and nutritionists are recommending eating vegan or just going meatless one day a week.  I think I could do that, but know that I can’t go completely vegan!  Now that I’ve done the Rest full program twice through – I knew which of my favorite meals I’d be eating this week as part of my mini-reset and thought I’d share a couple here.

Hearty Miso – My Favorite Vegan Recipedinner fav1

There are a lot of ways to make Miso – just standard with onion and seaweed, or you can add a lot of vegetables to bulk up your meal, and if you are going meat-free but want some extra protein you can toss in some tofu (shrimp is another protein alternative unless you are eating vegan)

1/4 medium red bell pepper, sliced

imagesYou can easily double or quadruple this recipe for 2-4 servings.  Other options are to add tofu, shrimp, or grilled chicken strips (if you are not strict vegan or not going meatless).  Serve  with 1/2 C cooked quinoa or brown rice.  Add more Braggs Liquid Aminos to taste. (I love this stuff – have completely replaced all use of soy sauce!)
