Guac + Tofurky = Heaven

by jenna on April 2, 2008

I knew I would use that leftover guacamole from the other night’s burrito for something!!!

Today for lunch I made a totally awesome sammie using 2 slices of Rudi’s whole wheat bread, toasted, 3 slices of Italian Deli tofurky, some greens and the rest of the guacamole. There were probably three tbsp left. I combined the sandwich with a crisp apple for a perfectly delicious and healthy lunch.

This morning I snacked on grapes and carrots (odd combo, I know) with Yogi tea.

There is something about avocado in a sandwich that makes it seems so luscious and decadent. Yum!

Anyone who does roast veggies with garlic, how do you all do it? Do you literally throw garlic cloves in the roasting pan? Chop them up? How many? Thanks!

Random question, I’m making a cinnamon breakfast bread that asks for a cup of sour cream. Is there any way to use something other than sour cream that will still give it the same consistency? Yogurt maybe? I don’t want to ruin it!

beth–

just take the garlic and slice it up, throw it in the pan with everything else…usually i’ll do 2 or 3 cloves because im a big garlic fan. cut them somewhat thickly so they dont burn though, the oven will be @ high heat and garlic cooks quickly.

other things i like to add are rosemary, oregano or herbs de provence (mix of oregano, rosemary, fennel…other things that i forget…), but usually i just stick to s & p. any herb would work really, but not so much spices (to me at least…maybe paprika would be good on some things like sweet potatoes). if i want to switch up the flavor a little ill use a bit of sesame oil or something. oh or on brussels sprouts sometimes ill drizzle balsamic on a few minutes before they’re done. and lemon juice, i always put that on my brussels sprouts.

Do you all think instant makes a difference in satiety?

hey everyone,

just thought id bring up something for discussion. a blogger on kath’s site posted this artilce: http://www.knbc.com/health/15763555/detail.html

i think it is really interesting to read about “orthorexia” because i can see it is a pervasive mentality in the united states, especially among middle-> upper class females (note, that is purely based on observation..not scientific study).

i comment because i have noticed a dramatic change in the sentiment of this blog. i commend jenna and everyone for their desire to be healthy and i certainly condone healthy dietary habits. however, i have noticed that foods and dining experiences that were once discussed with fond memories and pleasure (ie; croissants in paris, tasty meals–though they may be less than healthy etc…) have turned into to foods and experiences that are discussed with disapproval and guilt.

I actually just read that article—it was emailed to me. I had NO say so whatsoever in that and I’m sort of shocked they used my name in it when I was never once notified. Its so sad that people are interpreting food blogs like mine and Kath to actually be the trigger for such a terrible thing like orthoexia. That is def. NOT what we (and I think I can speak for Kath as well on this) want. We aim to show people a healthy outlook on food without deprivation and certainly without guilt. I am saddened that you have found this blog to have changed so much. My only comment on that is that people become more educated as they learn more about what they put into their bodies, and as a result, people change. I learn new things every single day at school and am constantly reading articles and new studies on nutrition. I have never once felt guilty with anything I put into my mouth. I don’t believe in guilt: I believe in healthy choices. I hope you can still find this blog to be a source of encouragement when it comes to food and making daily nutrition choices. I don’t have a taste for certain “unhealthy” foods that I once did and I commend myself on that. It’s all about staying educated and learning new things everyday!!

Well said Jenna!
I have to say my diet has changed alot still I started reading this blog and although some may view it as strict I have never felt happier/healthier. I really think your blog has helped me have a more positive outlook on my life and do what is right for my body and the environment. Thanks for doing such a great job!

Jenna,

I am very familiar with orthorexia (it’s actually not “new”, the term has been around for quite some time. It simply has received more attention in the news lately) Anyway, I do not see you or Kath fitting into this category AT ALL. There is a huge difference between an orthorexic and people like you and Kath who simply strive to feul their bodies with the healthiest food possible. You and Kath do this with passion and harbor a fun and positive attitude vs. an orthorexic who is ruled by fear, rigidity and obsession (much like an anorexic). I just want to reassure you (and Kath) that I believe most of us who read your blogs do not see you or Kath in this light at all. I consider both of you a breath of fresh air and reading your blogs on a daily basis gives me a reason to smile and get through my day (which are often long and grueling since I’m in a masters program to become a nurse practitioner). Don’t let this get you down. We love you! :)
