Day 10

Today we are on day 10 of our Plant Based 28 day challenge. So far we have done a pretty good job at sticking to Plant Based. We have had a few days that were not as good as the rest, but overall I am very proud of what we have done. 

Breakfast: Pancakes and French Toast
I decided to go with the Arrowhead Mill mix that I had in my pantry. But instead of using apple sauce and rice milk as usual, I was out of apple sauce, so I decided to us rice milk and chai seeds and water (let stand for 15 minutes together), and a little baking soda. We topped them with berries and Maple syrup. I also tried the E2 French Toast. Personally I didn't love it, but I would try it one more time. It was a little too mushy and I don't love warm bananas either. If you love bananas you will probably enjoy it. It's worth a shot. However, the Pancakes were delicious! 
Lunch: AVOCADO, HUMMUS, & SPROUT QUESADILLA: We used a sprouted tortilla, spread hummus on them, added sliced avocado, mung bean sprouts, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and (my favorite topping on anything) cilantro and limes :)! 

Dinner: Sweet Potatoes Bowl: Tonight I made this recipe from E2 (can you tell I like this book?) This recipe was delicious! All of us loved it! Two of my kidos didn't prefer the mango mixed in, but everyone else loved it all! Yum! Yum! Yum!  In the bowl was: Baked and cubed sweet potatoes, topped with black and pinto beans, read diced bell peppers, diced mangos, diced avocados, cilantro, lime, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and touch of salt. It was really delicious! 

Snack:  black bean chips, salsa, JalapeƱos x2, oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies, did let the kids share a vanilla ice cream today and of course I had to make sure it was safe ;) just a bite or two ;). No condemnation! I am telling myself! We have done so good and it's a process! A treat every now and then. However, I have recently been trying to find healthier desserts. We did find one yogurt shop that has sorbet, but it's pretty far from our house. So please share your healthy desserts with us! Any that are plant based would be great! 

What is your healthily go to dessert?
