The best falafel is green inside, lots of parsley... when it's yellow too much chick pea and dense. 

I add turmeric to mine though so they're almost neon.

I like to juice bunches of parsley. My dog likes to eat the stems, makes her breath smell nice.  I've been adding parsley to my salads and such because it is such a nice, economical herb.

Tuscan white beans, lemon garlic white wine asparagus, and tabouli salad.  The Tuscan beans are where its at, super simple, garlic, a tomato, add as much spice as you want, parsley and some water. Salt and bp, and then threw the skillet in the broiler to finish off.

Vegan Broccoli "cheese" soup with some homemade bread.  The soup gets the cheese/cream from raw cashews and nutritional yeast flakes.  There is a cup of plant based milk in there (I use an almond-cashew milk that is fortified with pea protein).  I had it with powder last night but today i might put a little sauce in it instead.

Black Bean Taco Salad with a homemade honey chipotle vinaigrette. The tortilla chips are actually made from beans too, they're called Beanitos.  There's cilantro lime rice at the bottom, romaine and spinach, a can of black beans cooked with onion and garlic and seasoned with GIP's smoked serrano powder among other things, sliced tomato and avocado, frontera salsa, pepitas and the dressing.  Definitely a staple meal here, have it almost once a week. It'll fill you up and you can play around with whats in it to make it a little different.  Sometimes I roast bell peppers or poblanos, or add soyrizo, or sweet potatoes. The dressing is killer too.  I use this recipe as a base, but for some reason never have red wine vinegar so I use a combo of balsamic and acv.

Another quick after training dinner.  Morningstar chipotle black bean burger that I found in bulk at Sam's club.  They're way bigger patties than the ones in the grocery store.  And since I'm going to get a sports nutrition certification this year Imma be tellin' ya'll about macros when i can for some of my meals.  These burgers are 190 cals, 7 g fat, 22 carbs (8 fiber, 2 sugar), and 17 g protein.  It is pretty perfect for an after workout meal with the carbs and protein in there.   I prettied up my burger with avocado, tomato, romaine, alfalfa and garlic sprouts, and a chipotle aioli on a sesame seed bun.

Have you tried Field Roast burgers?

I don't think I've seen those around here yet.  The place I grabbed these from is an exaggerated corner store.  They stock a lot of local products and Upton's in just down the way, I don't recall if they have any field roast products in there.  I think I'll have to go to a chain grocer to look for those.

 

A bar just opened up around here that serves a smash-type burger and you can sub in a smashed beyond patty... it is glorious.  

 

My guilty go to lately as been the boca spicy chik'n patties.... 

 

 

mmmm foood.

Tried a new "burger" yesterday.  It is a seitan-tofu combo burger by Upton's.  168 cals, 5 g fat, 9 g carbs, and 22 g protein for the macros.  it was $4 for 2 patties which is cheaper than the beyond burgers but a little more than your standard frozen veggie patties.  The flavor wasn't as burgery as it was pork-ish.  Honestly if I'd buy them again and do them up like a McRib.  Not as good as other veggie burgers out there but for the price and the macros I'll keep buying them for a quick after training meal when I didn't prepare something else.

It is an off day so just a little bean salad tonight. Red and White kidney beans, red cabbage, yellow bell pepper, grape tomatoes, green peas, scallion, parsley, with a tahini based dressing.  Pro tip, make your salad dressings spicy, it makes salad much more interesting.  I'm a big fan of smoked powders and GIP just restocked me with some smoked serrano, which is great because its not gunna melt your face and adds a nice bit of heat to the food.

I bought one of those fancy spiralizers that has 6 different blades.  It is pretty awesome.  Last night I made the thinnest setting zucchini noodle and tossed them in a chickpea and red lentil sauce.  I had cooked the lentils before hand and spiralized the zucchini ahead of time, so throwing it all together after the gym only took about 15 minutes.  The sauce is just crushed garlic, tomato paste, salt, bp, rosemary, red savina powder, smoked paprika, nutritional yeast flakes, acquafaba with the chickpeas and lentils. Acquafaba is the water that the chickpeas are cooked in.  In this case i used the water in the can because the chickpeas I buy only have chickpeas, water, and sea salt as ingredients.  Really good, really filling meal.

That was the original plan actually, but I they were smaller than the buns and I wouldn't have had enough to feed everyone.  (I didn't do the plantains myself, I got a box of the frozen ones you just throw in the fryer)

Yah Mon! I'm back from Jamaica and missing the food.  I won't lie, in Jamaica I tried all the local foods I could including jerk chicken, pork, fish.  But now that I'm back here its back to the regularly scheduled program.  I threw together some Jamaican inspired food last night.  Jerk Bbq jackfruit sandwiches, peas and rice, and fried plantains.

Hey guys! I'm back! Did y'all miss seeing pictures of veggies?

I am not really home in the evening much anymore so I tend to cook a big meal to last a few days.  Last night I went with a cauliflower and chickpea curry.  I used this recipe as a jumping point http://www.recipetineats.com/cauliflower-and-chickpea-curry/  I pretty much just used the recipe but added more slightly more cauliflower and peas, and added cabbage and smoked red hab powder. I had it was (light?) brown rice and naan bread.  Pretty good and simple, only took about 30-40 min to make and part of the time is it simmering down so I was able to get the dishes done in the mean time. I'm keeping it and will probably do it again in the future.
