What's on My Menu this Week?

This article is a little out of the ordinary for me, as I don't usually post what I eat regularly. Over the weekend, as I was making my grocery list and planning my meals for the week, I realized that I've found myself in quite the food rut; egg sandwich for breakfast, salad with chicken or tuna for lunch, and some kind curry or stir-fry for dinner. So I did some recipe research and found a couple new ones to try out, and man did I hit the jackpot! I've been enjoying some really delicious meals this week, so much so that I want to share what I've been chowing down on. (I did not, however, change my egg sandwich breakfast because that is my favorite meal ever and I can't live without it!)

Meal #1: "Eggy Breakfast"

This is actually NOT new, as I mentioned above. I eat this almost daily, and it's one of my favorite meals, ever. In my house we call this "eggy breakfast", and it goes like this: sprouted grain toast on the bottom, then a layer of avocado, a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, spinach or other greens, a fried egg, and a drizzle of sriracha on top. I usually have this for breakfast, but I'll eat it for lunch or dinner sometimes too.

Meal #2: Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Garlic Cilantro Lime Slaw

I'm salivating as I write about this recipe that I found on "Pinch of Yum's" website. Naturally, I made a few modifications: I used plain yogurt in place of the sour cream, added avocado and crushed red pepper to the lime sauce, and used purple cabbage instead of green (it was on sale).  Seriously, you need to try this!

Meal #3: Baked Sriracha and Soy Sauce Tofu Salad

I'm willing to admit that I love tofu, but I'm often at a loss for ideas on how to prepare it. So, I tried out this baked tofu recipe by "I Love Vegan" and fell in love. The only I change I made was to use sesame oil instead of olive oil. I added these into a salad that included quinoa, greens, cilantro (left over from the shrimp tacos), carrots, bell peppers, onions, and cashews .I drizzled some additional sesame oil and sriracha over the top and WOW. So so good. 

Though I'm without a photo of this, I've also been enjoying some delicious "yogurt parfaits" for breakfast or as a snack. These usually include Greek yogurt, maca powder, chia seeds, blueberries, walnuts, coconut flakes, cinnamon, and a drizzle of honey. It's pretty much pudding...
