junk food dinner

CRABCAKES, SAUSAGES, AND TERIYAKI CHICKEN

TASTES JUST AS GOOD AS THE REAL THING but with no hormones, artery-clogging saturated fats or cholesterol, and death involved

it’s still processed so it’s not so healthy but still better than real meat

The Best Vegan Mac and Cheese (v/gf/nut-free/soy-free)

That’s right - a vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free mac and cheese that is the absolute best that I’ve ever had. I made this for Christmas Eve, and my whole extended, non-vegan family loved it. This is a biiiiiig batch that makes about 2 party sized trays, so definitely half this recipe if you are making it for a dinner-casserole size. I was going to do this recipe again in a smaller batch and post it another time, but I just had to share it with you all. I hope you really give it a try! I’ve done mac and cheese in the past with a roux and daiya, and I’ve seen it before done with potatoes, carrots, and cashews… So I thought I would combine the roux method and with potatoes and carrots to make this incredibly creamy, deceptively vegan, mac and cheese. Next time I do this, I’m going to find a way to not use onion powder and garlic to make it fodmap-friendly. 

Remember, this makes two large casseroles - cut this recipe in half if you are making it for an average dinner

Ingredients:
- 1 900g bag of macaroni (use gf if needed)
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp All-Purpose flour (use gf if needed)
- 1 946ml box of original rice milk (or use any unsweetened plant-based milk)
- 1 cup of diced carrots (boiled til soft)
- 2 ½ cups of diced white or yellow potatoes (peeled, and boiled til soft)
- 2 cloves finely minced garlic
- ½ tbsp onion powder
- 1 cup nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper to taste (maybe ½ tbsp each)
- bread crumbs and vegan cheese shreds for baking (optional)

Instructions:
1) Prepare your noodles according to the package instructions, set aside until needed
2) In a large sauce pan on medium heat, add oil and flour and whisk until smooth. Add half of your rice milk. Increase heat to medium high and continue to whisk until smooth. Add the garlic, and remove from heat.
3) In a food processor or blender, blend the carrots and potatoes with some rice milk until smooth. You don’t have to be too precise with the rice milk because it will all end up going in the sauce.
4) Put add the blended veggies into the sauce pan, and return to medium heat. Add salt, pepper, onion powder and nutritional yeast. Also add any remaining rice milk. Continue cooking until fully warm. If it is looking too thick, you can add about ¼-½ cup of water to thin. At this point, you can add in your noodles and mix. Serve warm.
5) If you wish to bake your mac and cheese, add the pasta to a lightly greased casserole dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs and vegan cheese (if using), and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until the edges are brown and the bread crumbs are toasted. 
6) ENJOY!!

Day 6. Okay so remember what I said I would post everything (no matter how un aesthetically pleasing) haha well here is the food for day six 😅😅😅 (I also omitted the water as it felt unnecessary but for those interested there was 4 bottles today)

So while this isn’t the most nutritious day it also involves one of my all time, ride or die favourite foods. To say I’m obsessed with kimchi pancakes (kimchijeon) would be a massive understatement haha.
If you want the recipe let me know! It is so easy and delicious 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤😍

onetrickpuppy  asked:

I was wonderi if you had any recipe recommendations for someone just starting out as a vegan, I'm starting it on monday when I do my next food shop

Absolutely! I’m actually a horrible cook and stick to the basics. I’m not sure where you shop for food, but most towns have a natural foods store with fun stuff like vegan cheeses and meats. But you can easily find all you need at a big chain grocery store. Here’s a breakdown of what I eat on a typical day.


Breakfast:

-Cereal (most kinds are vegan surprisingly, just skim the ingredients list for any dairy or honey) with soy milk (or any plant-based milk you prefer, depending on tolerance and allergies, there’s almond, cashew, coconut, rice, hemp, oat, and flax. I prefer soy, almond, and cashew for taste.)

-Toasted English muffin with one half warmed in the microwave with Chao vegan cheese slice, the other half spread with Tofutti soy cream cheese (it’s the best cream cheese out there and real cheap compared to others, but there are soy-free vegan cheeses available if you can’t eat soy)

-Oatmeal (packaged or quick-make because I’m a noob) with brown sugar or maple syrup on top, and fruit if you have it!

-If you have a blender, go wild! Frozen fruit + banana + plant-based milk of your choice + protein powder (optional) = Perfection. I don’t even add sugar because the fruit makes it so sweet. (more smoothie recipes here)


Snacks:

-Kite hill soy-free dairy-free yogurt (complete with probiotics)

-Fruuiiiiiit if it’s in season (melons fill you up the most with the least amount of calories, if that’s something you are concerned with)

-Justin’s Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (they’re not super cheap but they are worth every penny and they are SO GOOD)

-Fruit juices of any kind, but especially that thick green stuff (I love it)

-Carrots (or any finger veggie really) and hummus

-Tortilla/potato chips and bean dip if I’m feeling my junk food vibe


Lunch/Dinner:

-Pizza with tomato sauce and whatever veggies you like (I go for artichoke, spinach, mushroom, corn, and tomatoes)

-PB&J (I like Justin’s nut butters because they’re really smooth and usually cheaper than all the other more “natural” brands)

-Baked potato with Earth Balance butter, nutritional yeast sprinkled on top (it’s like a cheesy type of flaky condiment with lots of B12 in it)

-If you’re not terrified of using a frying pan like I am, you can stir fry literally anything with the right noodles, veggies, tofu, and tempeh

-SQUASH. Just cut that baby in half (I love spaghetti and butternut squash, but acorn squash is also really good and small). Put it in a microwavable casserole dish with some water, poke some holes in it, and heat it in the microwave for 7-10 minutes (maybe longer? you’ll know it’s done when you stick a fork in it and it’s soft), then put vegan butter, salt, and nutritional yeast on it, and eat straight from the gourd.

-Gardein Seven Grain “Chicken” Tenders over whatever frozen veggies I’m in the mood for (I CANNOT recommend frozen veggies enough, they’re cheap and they last forever, and Gardein’s plant-based meats have so much protein it’s ridiculous)

-Veggie burgers (there are a million different brands now, so don’t be afraid to experiment, my personal favorite is Field Roast) with Vegenaise (Just Mayo might be more widely available at national chains), more Chao cheese slices, and whatever veggies you want to heap on top (more veggie burger ideas)

-Pasta pasta pasta!

-Spaghetti with chickpeas, diced tomatoes, and capers. Real simple to make. My mom (who is not vegan) actually found the recipe in redbookmag.com. And for the life of me I can’t find it now, but this recipe is very similar, except it has panko bread crumbs sprinkled on top (which frankly sounds even more delicious and I will have to try it myself).

-More pasta because you can never have too much pasta in your life?

-30 Vegan Meals in under 30 Minutes

-10 Very Varied Vegan Recipes Everyone Should Know

-Tips on How to shop Vegan on a Budget (and how it isn’t any more expensive than a non-vegan diet)

I’ll also include a few links to some vegan starter kits that will also help you out. Thank you so much for this ask, I get super excited talk to people trying out veganism. Let me know if you have any more questions! Happy shopping!

Veganuary Starter Kit

Why Vegan?

Vegan Outreach Kit (they actually send you information in the mail)

Vegan Cuts - Not a starter kit, but a snack box you receive each month with lots of vegan goodies (there is also a beauty box for all your cruelty-free hygiene needs)

VegNews - A HUGE resource for for vegan recipes, news, travel, whatever you might be curious to know about veganism

And lastly, Roy thanks you for being so awesome.

Sleepover with the team? It can be an imagine or head cannon, i don't really care.

Sleepover with the Criminal Minds Team

• I feel like it would be after a really rough and emotional case.

•It would be at Garcia’s house , cause she is the queen of fun.

• JJ and Garcia would bring so much junk food

• Rossi would make dinner , probably spaghetti

• Lots of wine  

• Lots of story telling . Like childhood anecdotes , past cases etc

• Prentiss would bring Sergio

• Drunk Garcia and Prentiss obsessing over Sergio

• Reid giggling , magic tricks and rambles about random Star Trek theories.

• Morgan shoving a pillow at Reid’s face to shut him up.

• Hotch not saying much but smiling and laughing and being at peace.

• Garcia and Reid forcing everyone to watch Doctor Who

• Garcia and Reid debating on who is the best doctor while everyone watches.

• everyone stops watching to see them fight.

• Garcia shoving Reid off the couch in frustration.

•Everyone falling asleep to Doctor Who


* Bonus* 

 •Luke Alvez would definitely be bullied all night by Garcia and would tease her back and would literally be picking at each other like school children.
