lentil fries

2

This was breakfast and dinner from my last day in St. Thomas. The first picture is explanatory, but I will say those fresh fruit every morning at the hotel were wonderful, and I love a good bagel every now and again.

The dinner I had was wonderful too (despite how ugly the picture is) and all vegan. I actually had 2 plates of this it was so good but I had corn, lentil balls made with some other veggies, rice and beans, and fried cauliflower. I think I enjoyed the lentil balls the most. I honestly don’t think I could ever get tired of lentils.

I’ve been back in my apartment since Saturday and I’m honestly really missing home, so I might go back there tomorrow since my exams aren’t until the 10th..
Cause running always makes you feel better I did tempo mile repeats this morning which went great! I had rice, lentils and veggies fried in coconut oil for lunch aand I went to the gym for a lift in the afternoon. Hope you’re all having a nice day :)

Apologies if you have ever answered a question like this before, but I'm only beginning to learn about vegan nutrition and recipes, and I wouldn't say I'm a picky eater, but I don't really like beans and nuts and a lot of vegan dishes include so many new flavours and ingredients, and I find it hard to find recipes that are simple and nutritious, but don't include too many new ingredients, so I can phase in new foods over time. Do you have any advice or recourses to help me out?

No need to apologise. It’s very likely your tastes will adapt and change over time, which is what most vegans experience. For the time being though, there are lots of simple dishes you can go for, or dishes which resemble food you’ll be used to. Try things like stir fries, curries, lentils instead of beans, noodle dishes, chickpeas and rice, pasta dishes, lots of indian, japanese, chinese and thai food is vegan as well. For pretty much every taste palette you can get vegan versions of it. I also have a bunch of recipes you may find useful here
