Simple but profound

I'll be doing an update soon - I'm considering creating a new blog by buying out a domain in my name. Anyway, I thought I'd post this in the meantime... Not as cute as a piggy in red rainboots, but it gets the point across!:

Decisions, decisions...

As of late, I have unofficially been off the vegan bandwagon. However, I have decided to get back on the bandwagon bit by bit, day by day! Starting tomorrow, I'm planning on waking up early (yes, on the weekend) to get a run in first thing in the morning and swing by the farmer's market for some delicious goodies! The plan from thereon out is to go vegan about 2-3 days per week (sorry, cheese, I can't give you up just yet, you delicious vixen!).

So, naturally tonight becomes decision-making time. I'd love to try some fun, new recipes which will keep me motivated and fueled for the day. Any recommendations or tips? I found a recipe for beet risotto and another for vegan pot pie. While both sound absolutely delicious, I'd like to add in a few recipes which will feel a little lighter on the stomach... Maybe something involving kale or spinach.

Anyway, a few months ago I made these absolutely delicious quinoa-flour-oatmeal pancakes with berries, Greek salad, stuffed grape leaves, and my incredibly coveted lentil curry recipe. My plan for this weekend is to get those pictures up and post a few recipes to share. The problem I encounter is I cook "to taste", so I rarely measure anything. Perhaps going vegan 2-3 days a week will provide me with a new challenge: actually create measurable recipes!

Happy Friday, and happy eating, everyone!
