Today is Day 15 of eating like a pescatarian, and it's still going really well! I even got my mom some food from Chick-fil-A without having a breakdown & craving some chicken. I'm really enjoying this fast of meat, and getting creative in the kitchen. Here are some of my recent meals (including that top photo of some incredible salmon I made).
I reenacted the blueberry balsamic herb crusted salmon I made a while ago, and paired it with a brown rice + veggie pilaf.
I added fresh avocado and lime cream on top of the salmon. The veggie & rice dish includes (brown rice, white mushrooms, carrots, avocado, and fresh spinach).
Words can't explain how delicious this was.
I have fallen in love with black bean burgers, and I love how I can quickly make them at the start of the week and eat them for the next few days. These burgers include (fresh spinach, cilantro, black beans, whole kernel corn, white onions, mushrooms, brown rice, black pepper, and curry). Then, I topped each burger with a slice of tomato and pepper jack cheese.
Really versatile, really delicious, really easy.
I cooked a pot of brown rice to last throughout the week, and for lunch one day I topped it with these fresh veggies (carrots, cucumber, and radishes).
I've started mainly cooking veggie noodle pasta (servings of vegetables in the noodles). I sautéed onions, mushrooms, avocado, black pepper, and lemon juice in a skillet and then added it to these veggie rotini noodles, amazing dinner!
I had this bun less black bean burger with some sweet potato fries for lunch one day, really filling!
On top of brown rice, I added black beans and corn. Then, I added green salsa and carrots and drizzled some honey on top. This was the perfect quick lunch before I headed to class.
I've been super impressed with the meals my boyfriend has been making as he eats like a pescatarian this month as well. These fish tacos with rice, brussels sprouts, and potato wedges look like a really great meal!
