Dinner

Ingredients:
1 large tomato
1 block of tofu
1/4 small red onion
4 white mushrooms
2 small radishes
1 tablespoon soy sauce
garlic powder to taste
cumin to taste
1/2 lemon
4 romaine lettuce leaves
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup sprouts
1/2 avocado
salsa to taste

Method:
Cut the tomato, tofu, and red onion into strips. Slice the mushrooms. Very thinly slice the radishes.
Saute the red onion in the soy sauce over medium heat. After the soy sauce begins to evaporate, add the tomato and tofu strips. Stir, then add the sliced mushrooms.
Add garlic powder and cumin to taste, as well as the juice of 1/2 lemon. Continue to cook the mixture, stirring, until the vegetables are tender.
Spread each romaine lettuce leaf with 1 teaspoon of mustard. Divide the tofu-tomato mixture between each of the leaves, and top with the sprouts.
Divide the thinly sliced radishes between the four leaves, and top with avocado and salsa.

Throughout the day, remember to listen to your body! It’s so important to eat the amount of food that your body needs, and listen to what it’s craving, instead of trying to force yourself to eat a specific amount at a set time.

These are only some of the things I eat during a work day. Lots of people are surprised by the abundance that you can eat while on a plant-based diet, so be sure to check out my video to see these recipes and the other delicious foods I ate on one work day! Once you get into this lifestyle, it’s amazing how simple, abundant, and delicious your meals can be.

Love you!
