alex ii törnplan 2018 click In this day and age life is moving at such a rapid pace, I know if you are anything like me, you feel that your time is your most precious commodity and although living healthy might seem like a great ideal, sometimes it’s intimidating because you think it will take too much time out of your life.
young god records here The big question that you should ask yourself is not how much time it costs you now, but how much time it costs you in the end?

Let me prove to you that this notion that healthy living is going to take a huge amount of time-is so far off base…that it only takes a bit of knowledge…which I’m going to share with you.

prénom russes feminins A Healthy Lifestyle Doesn’t Lie in Even the “Healthiest” of Fast Food Joints
Don’t be mad, I’m just helping ya out… but this includes Chick-Fil-A.
http://blackfar.live/2018/10 profielfoto iemand erbij plakken Ok first, I know that I’m not the only one out there that adore the waffle fries at Chick-Fil-A…and although they do have higher quality foods than most fast food places, they still aren’t promoting a healthy lifestyle.
steel in gst If you are used to eating at McDonalds or KFC or dare I say Taco Bell, then maybe Chick-Fil-A is a lesser of evils. But stick with a salad with some vinaigrette dressing how bout it. Most of the sauces of Chick-Fil-A contain as a FIRST Ingredient HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. Which, lets not get me started on that ingredient-but it’s the worst for your health, it packs on the pounds and has been linked to major illnesses as well. Plus, the meats (if you eat meat) are not hormone and antibiotic free…so basically when you eat their chicken you are ingesting chemicals and hormones in your body that are foreign—eeeeekkk.

SO GLAD YOU ASKED!!!
A Healthy Lifestyle is All About Easy Planning and Making the Most Out Of Your Time
Part of the trick to living a healthy lifestyle is taking one food and making more than one meal out of it. This way you only cook once yet you get two separate dishes….Cook Once & Eat Twice!!!
So the trick is to prepare one or more parts of any given meal and set some aside for the next meal(s).
Sounds complicated but it’s really simple and can be fun, almos like playing a game with your food.
My Healthy Lifestyle Mexican Style Easy Vegan Recipe X’s 3
On the Menu will be:
1. Vegan Nachos
2. Mexican Vegan Wrap
3. Up To You (trust me I will give you some suggestions in just a minute)
Because I do choose to live a vegan lifestyle, tempeh is a stable in my house. It’s a fantastic source of non animal protein. Research shows that if you keep your animal protein intake less than 5% of your diet then you can ward off cancer and shrink existing cancer cells in the body. To learn more on animal protein and how it effects the body, check out the movie “Forks Over Knives”.
Tempeh is super simple to cook with and can be found in almost any typical grocery store where you find the tofu. Of course any health food store will carry it as well.
So the key to this series of meals is just cooking one full package of plain (not seasoned) tempeh and using it in three meals throughout the day.
1. First break apart the tempeh with your fingers, until it resembles crumbles of ground chicken/turkey. (for you meat lovers out there just use an organic free range if possible).
2. Sautee the crumbles in 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil and add 2-3 tablespoons of taco seasoning and 2 tablespoons of water to evenly distribute the seasoning. No need to heat too much, the tempeh is already ready to eat right out of the package-the goal here is to just get that yummy taco seasoning flavoring the tempeh.
Now that you have your main ingredient for 2-3 different meals, you are ready to make the full dishes!
Meal #1: Vegan Nachos
1. Your choice of nachos. For me I enjoy plant based nachos. This bag from Trader Joe’s (my favorite health food store in the US) has awesome Flaxseed Chips made with Spinach, Tomatos, and Beets. They taste and look great!
2. Vegan Daiya “Cheddar” Cheese. (this is a pea protein based cheese and it actually melts)
3. Jalapeños to taste-raw or pickled
4. 1 Small Tomato-Diced
5. 1 Sprig of Green Onions-chopped roughly
Preheat oven to 350 or on the low broil setting.
1. Lay about 10-12 chips down on a baking sheet
2. Take 1/3 of your taco seasoned mixture and lay on top of the nachos.
3. Add about 1/4 cup of cheese.
4. Bake the chips, tempeh and cheese for about 5-10 minutes (keep an eye out, you want the cheese to melt but not burn the chips…I’m notorias for burning things in the oven) They are done when the cheese has melted.
Heating any food reduces the nutrients and actually does cause free radicals in the body (which cause illnesses and disease like cancer), so it’s critical to consume raw foods at every meal when possible to balance out and get some alkaline foods in ya.
So here you have these awesome nachos and you could stop there an have a nice small meal or snack. However I went a step further and added once the cheese was melted. I slapped on raw diced tomatos, pickled jalapeños, and chopped green onions. Bringing in even more flavor and some live/raw elements to make it an even healthier meal.
Meal #2: Mexican Vegan Wrap
- 1 Sprouted Grain Wrap (sprouted anything is the highest absorption of nutrients-versus, highly processed foods)
- 1 Small Organic Roma Tomato-sliced
- 1 Small Carrot-peeled
- Handful of organic lettuce (I used romaine but you can use whatever you have on hand)
- Vegan Cream Cheese with Spicy Salsa (clearly I love heat in my foods so you can leave this out if you want and replace with a mild salsa)
- 1/3 of the Taco flavored Tempeh
1. Cover one side of the wrap with your vegan cream cheese with spicy salsa mix.
2. Lay the lettuce down, then the peeled carrot and sliced tomato on top of that.
3. Use 1/3 of the tempeh mixture and lay on top. (if you didn’t use the vegan cream cheese mixture, then top your wrap off with the salsa of your choice)
4. Wrap that puppy up and NNNNNN JOY every bite.
This dish is super fast to prepare-maybe 5 minutes, but it will be packed with flavor, almost all raw foods, tons of protein, complex carbs, and will fill you up in no time. It will taste so good though, with all the layers of flavor that you will want another one.
So, you coud make another one with the left over tempeh, or you can make your third meal. Yes that’s right I said third meal.
Meal #3 Suggestions
- Vegan Chili-take your favorite chili recipe and just substitute the tempeh with the meat.
- Mexican Quinoa Bowl-just add black beans and pepers with your tempeh and BAM…you might as well be doing the Macarena 🙂
- Taco Salad-lay a bed of greens down, add black beans, cheese, green onions, crush some veggie chips up and add salsa
- Mexican Patty Melt-take flowerless sprouted grain bread, layer salsa down, then tempeh and cover with vegan cheese, then melt in toaster oven
Easy Vegan Recipes Can Lead to a Healthy Lifestyle (and can be more than fun and out of this world tasty)
Most people in the world aren’t vegan and will never be vegan. But even if you aren’t vegan you can explore some vegan options and step away from the animal protein, maybe only for a day if you are so used to consuming meat at every meal.
I love the concept of Meatless Mondays. It’s one day a week where the whole family can simple eat living foods, in whatever form.
Veganism isn’t for everyone and in fact I don’t think most people should live a vegan lifestyle. It takes discipline, commitment and a true desire to live a long time. Which means a lot of focus and education has to be centered around suplimentation, to ensure you are getting all your dietary needs met.
And for the record my lifestyle in this department, is driven way more by my spiritual beliefs of living in harmony and with respect to all creatures than just health. There is something seated so deep in me now, that it’s challenging for me to even think about consuming an animal product…my stomach actually turns.
But I must admit at the same time that this lifestyle is new to me, just over a year now. So, I don’t frown upon, nor judge anyone who consumes animals products. Heck my own children still eat animal products so…
But I do love sharing these meals with you, because even as a non-vegan you can have fun with these easy vegan recipes and implement along with your diet.
Do you have any “cook once eat twice” meals that you enjoy (even if they aren’t vegan)
