Day 4!

Today is day four and things are going well. We haven't had much problem with the plant-based diet and have actually enjoyed trying new recipes. Today we went to a vegan restaurant called Munch, the kids and Ben enjoyed pancakes with vegan bacon and sausage and I had vegetable scramble with sweet potatoes. We realized that the faux bacon and sausage are not necessarily to our liking but the corn meal pancakes were excellent. Then we walked over to a local bakery called Bleeding Heart and had these amazing vegan cupcakes. Tonight Ben made a roasted cauliflower steak on a bed on homemade garlic tomato sauce with an olive and sun-dried tomato relish; it was super yummy.
We have played with recipes this week making a spinach and cannelloni bean dip, homemade Alfredo pasta sauce with cashews, soy sauce, Dijon mustard and garlic, and garbanzo bean and black bean hummus. So far it has been a fun adventure.
