Simple Eats, 2/18

Hello and welcome back to Simple Eats!

This past week we experimented with different paleo packable lunches. My favorite was the coconut crusted chicken tenders. They were absolutely delicious and SO simple to make. Also, it’s always fun to create a healthified version of one of your favorite childhood meals.

This week we will be shifting our focus from paleo meals to vegetarian meals. This is probably the most familiar and least restrictive dietary theory we have worked with this month. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the vegetarian diet, it includes all foods except for meat and poultry. Often times people who follow this diet still eat fish, eggs and dairy.

This week we will be focusing on the following key ingredients:

Cauliflower – I know, again with the cauliflower. Cauliflower is a great substitution for a grain/flour, as well as a meat or poultry alternative. It’s texture can be broken down to hold shape like a grain or flour and it also easily absorbs marinates and flavors to make it wonderful to cook with.

Portobello Mushrooms – Portobellos are also often times a substitute in a meat dish. Mushrooms are thick and meaty like a steak might be and they are strong enough to hold their shape on a grill or in a oven.
