Midsummer after the market, my fruit bowl runneth over
As late summer rolls into early fall, I’m loving the constant change on my plate. This year I’ve focused on eating super seasonally; the majority of meals come straight from the Farmer’s Market. I’ve loved eating locally and I’m looking forward to carrying it through winter . . . with lots of creativity!
BBQ tempeh and corn on the cob and cole slaw, um, YUM!
Tacos two ways.
These mini white cucumbers were soooo divine, I bought them every week for months! I’ve never had a cucumber so crisp and crunchy. I miss them!
With heirloom tomatoes and aged balsamic . . .
Homemade ranch dressing, omgveganranchholygrail
Hummus and falafel in a cabbage leaf wrap.
Does this need any explanation? Nope, I don’t think so.
Homemade vinaigrette. I always prefer simple salad dressings.
And speaking of simple – this is pretty much my idea of dinner perfection.
Classic green smoothie after a chilly morning walk. This one was 2 overripe bananas, lots of spinach, some water kefir, some ice cubes, and some Manitoba Harvest vanilla hemp protein powder. I’ve always avoided flavored powders but this was free so I tried it . . . OMG BLEW MY MIND. My new favorite smoothie!
Oven baked root veggies (red onion, red beets, and heirloom purple potatoes), dijon roasted brussels sprouts, and a bit of last night’s leftover soup.
Mmmm, I love looking back over this food porn! I remember how amazing the food tasted, and how nourished and fabulous I felt after eating it. It makes me so grateful and glad to be vegan!
