Collard Wraps

This meal can simply be leftovers wrapped in steamed collard leaves.

Salad and dressing is wonderful; so are grains with mustard, shredded carrot and sliced peppers, just as examples. These wraps are a staple in a vegan meal plan! I would say the only thing that doesn’t go in a collard wrap is peanut butter and jelly! Here is a recipe using hummus. The recipe for hummus can be found here.

Parmazano

Use this cheesy addition as a substitute for Parmesan cheese and as a condiment.  So versatile, it adds flavor to simple recipes.

Nutritional yeast is good source of protein (52%), dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals containing essential amino acids, and rich in vitamins, including B-complex. Find it in most large grocery chains and sometimes in the bulk section.

Cashew Cream

This deceptively easy and deliciously rich, dairy-free alternative to cream, which can be as saucy or stiff as desired.  A blender or food processor is essential.
 
Use in a parfait with layers of berries, (defrosted or fresh); or on fruit, on top of granola or muesli or as a bagel shmear.

Kitchen Sink Salad

Be brave! An unplanned salad can be just as delicious as one from a recipe. Salads with a simple dressing are great vehicles for leftovers and makeovers, and often turn out tastier than you ever expected. Getting raw vegetables in everyday will fill you up and boost your immune system, so try experimenting. Bell pepper? Tomatoes? Fruit? Beans? Pasta? Throw it together!

Breakfast Smoothie

This is a great tool to pack in vegetables and fruits and thus antioxidants and nutrients.  Please note that overall, we are meant to chew our food, allowing enzymes in the mouth to start breaking down carbohydrates, and exercise needed facial muscles.  Souse this gem-of-a-recipe mindfully, and not everyday.

Further, because the blender breaks down fiber, carbohydrate enters the blood stream rapidly, which may not be good for those with metabolic syndrome, glucose or insulin sensitivity, overweight or obesity, or vascular disease.  

Raspberry Vinaigrette

This dressing is delicious over a fruity breakfast salad, such as a bed of mesclun greens topped with strawberries and pecans.
