My Current Food Obsession

Lately, I’ve been craving salads like crazy (I imagine his has something to do with all the junk food and comfort food I’ve been eating since late summer). So, inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest, I made a week’s worth of salads in mason jars.

They’re so easy to make and I love having something to grab on my way out the door in the morning. It makes a great time-saver if you make them ahead of time.

The concept is simple: put your dressing on bottom and top with your salad toppings and then, your greens. When you want to eat it, just dump it into a bowl and enjoy. I have a bowl that folds flat that is perfect for carrying to work (from The Pampered Chef!).

The salads keep for a solid 5 days without getting soggy.

The top jar is (bottom to top):
Salsa, avocado, black beans, and spinach.

The next photo is:

(Back) spicy tahini dressing, cucumber, radish, sunflower seeds, spinach.

Bottom photo:
Avocado, creamy mustard vinaigrette, cucumber, cranberries, sunflower seeds, spinach.

>Vegan MoFo Day Thirty: Lunch

>I’ve been bad. I started work (hooray!), and I stopped blogging. Probably because I leave my house at 6:30, and get home close to 7:00, eat dinner, sleep, and do it all again. Blogging hasn’t been at the top of my list – surviving my first week definitely has.

Anyway, I’ve been making my lunch every day, I thought I’d share.

Lunch, day two: wrap filled with avocado, leftover Celebration Loaf, spinach, veganaise, deli mustard, and daiya mozzarella. Pistachios. Two sliced fuyu persimmons. Mini candy canes

Lunch, day four: more pistachios, Gramma’s date apricot cookies (they’re the only vegan cookies she knows how to make, so she makes them all the time), and soba noodles with tofu cubes and broccoli.

Today, my lunch was all brown, so I didn’t bother with a picture – Peanut butter and home-made cherry jam on whole wheat bread, pistachios, and another date apricot cookie.

Tomorrow, I’m having this awesome Moroccan stew that my dad makes. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.

Do you have any great lunch suggestions? I’m always looking for some.

Yes, I Really Did Just Say That.
