Minestrone Soup

Growing up I hated sandwiches. Weird, I know! I actually didn’t discover a sandwich I liked until I married my hubby and he made me a delicious sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. And of course, now I’m addicted to Tomato, Basil, and Mozzerella Sandwiches, so I guess I’m a poster-child for trying new things even when you previously …

Vegan P90x Meal Plan and Food Journal

Hi folks! At long last, I’ve put together a vegan version of my P90x food journal, based on the alternative vegan meal plan Beachbody provided in their recent P90x newsletter. Hopefully this is helpful for all of you Xers out there hoping to do P90x vegan-style!

Vegan P90x Meal Plan

First, here’s a handy …

Cream of Mushroom Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, my hubby is a fan of all things mushroom. Thus, when I was thinking of coming up with a meat-free soup for the cold weather, I decided that Cream of Mushroom should be first on the list! It came out well – hubby cleared his bowl. =)

So here’s a random …

Yay, Melissa! This site has sorely needed a protein bar recipe, and I had been trying to come up with one without success, until Melissa decided to do my job for me. Gotta love that! =) It sounds really good, and my plan is to try it out with rice protein to see if it …

Spaghetti Squash

Well, it’s official! My hubby has started round 2 of P90x! I’m back to cooking every meal and managing his nutrition, which you’d think would be a no-brainer for me at this point (given the website and all), however with this new vegan/vegetarian bent we’re on, I’m having to rethink everything. To a certain degree …

Slow Cooker Chili

Well, I’ve done it! I’ve perfected my vegan slow cooker chili recipe. 🙂 Yesterday my family celebrated our annual holiday – Thanksmas! As the name implies, it is a cross between Thanksgiving and Christmas. (The name also implies that my family is extremely cheesy. I won’t argue with you there.) I was hosting, but due …

Green Chili Scalloped Potatoes

Today’s new P90x recipe is a tasty twist on scalloped potatoes. It …

Italian Polenta

Today’s recipe is less of a recipe, and more of a serving suggestion! I recently learned that polenta (aka corn grits) can be served Italian-style in the place of pasta. So you basically cook the polenta, and then serve it with some tasty sauce on top. I served it with my Meat Spaghetti Sauce over …

Black Bean Burgers (and the Grumpy Vegan!)

I’ve never been much of a vegi-burger type person (or as you know, a vegi person in general), but lately I’ve been considering cutting out meat and dairy. This is a very depressing statement for me, and I’m very grumpy about it! LOL. It has nothing to do with philosophical problems with cruelty to animals …

Creamy Tofu Pesto with Artichokes and Mushrooms

OK, guys. I’ve made a super exciting discovery! (Well, exciting as food discoveries go. I have to take my thrills where I can get them!) Remember how in the Creamy Pesto and Kielbasa recipe I was a little concerned about adding yogurt to my Spinach Pesto in order to add creaminess, because it adds that …

So who wants to get credit for eating your vegetables while you’re eating dessert? Um, MEEE! Danielle has come up with a real winner here. What a perfect way to usher in the fall. Oh, and did I mention that this P90x dessert COUNTS AS A VEGETABLE SERVING?!! K, just checking. 🙂

Take it away, …

Banana Sandwich

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one, other than YUM. Oh, and be warned that this sucker is intense! You might want to save it until you have a dairy serving to spare for a glass of milk! 🙂

Ingredients:

1 whole wheat English muffin 2 Tb. peanut butter 1/2 banana …

BBQ Tofu and “Baked” Beans

By now you are all aware of my obsession with BBQ sauce. Bullseye Original is a staple in my household…I have a habit of putting it on everything – chicken, meatloaf, quesadillas…even things that just shouldn’t have BBQ sauce on them. lol. Well, here I go again. I’ve heard rumor that, BORG-like, tofu just absorbs …

Barley Vegetable Soup

You know me. Vegis and I have a love-hate relationship. OK, so mostly hate. 😉 But nevertheless, my hubby and I are eating them, because you have to eat your vegetables when you do P90x! So here is another not-terrible way to eat your vegetable servings. I know, such a glowing recommendation for my own …

Grapenuts Berry Crumble

Sorry for the crappy camera-phone picture. Can’t find my battery charger! Anyway, here is another P90x dessert option. I am a huge fan of Grapenuts cereal. Not in its normal teeth-shatteringly-crunchy state, but after it’s been softened by milk and heat. It just seemed like it’d make a perfect ingredient for a “crumble” or cobbler …

Homemade Olive Hummus and Pita

This was one of my more ambitious projects. I made this hummus completely from scratch, even to the point of starting with dried beans that I soaked overnight. After that time-consuming process was through, I decided that I never wanted to wait overnight for my food again! (You know me – lazy and impatient! 😉 …

Baja Zucchini Boats

Do any of you remember the Baja Potato Boats at Applebees? They were my favorite meal there for years. Then one day I went and they had vanished from the menu. Tragedy!! Applebees has never been the same for me since. Anyway, they were the inspiration for this recipe, even though this recipe tastes nothing …

X-y Oatmeal

Hi guys, d’ya miss me?! Judging from the multitude of forlorn emails I’ve received in the past two weeks, I’m guessing so. (OK, so maybe it was only ONE forlorn email, but I’m assuming that for every one email I receive there are hundreds of you who missed me and were too lazy to write! …

P90x Spaghetti

The nice thing about the P90x nutrition plan is that, even though you are on a low-carb diet in the first phase, as long as you keep track of your portions, you can still enjoy some of your favorite foods. Take this tasty P90x spaghetti recipe – it is warm, hearty, and something you always …

Shrimp Fried Rice with Edamame

I know that the P90x nutrition plan already gives you a recipe for shrimp stir fry, but as it has several ingredients that I don’t typically have sitting around my house (minced ginger, anyone?), I decided to make my own version. Technically fried rice is made with day-old rice and stir fry …
