Whole 30 Day 4

Whole 30 Day 4! Popped out of bed like a daisy today! We had been having some cloudy weather in West Texas (really unusual) and yesterday was finally sunny and I soaked it up like a solar panel! Today was sunny too and that is […]

Spicy Tofu and Vegetables

Spicy Tofu and Vegetables

I have practiced vegetarianism from time to time in my life, and because of that I developed a taste for tofu. Even if you aren’t a vegetarian, you can still see the virtue in those little beige cubes. It’s a low-fat and an inexpensive source […]

Chicken, Carrot, and Kale Stir-fry with Sweet Chili-Garlic Sauce

I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or ease of readiness, but lately I have been eating soup at least once a day (either lunch of dinner). Don’t get me wrong, I love soup. However, on a recent shopping trip to get a microwave […]

Thai Tofu and Vegetable Stir-fry in Coconut-Cashew Curry Sauce

My favorite Thai curry is Tofu Panang curry, which is a type of red curry, but it’s not as spicy. It also has some of the same spices that are featured in Indian curries, which I happen to like as well. The problem with making […]
