Lately, I have had a few of you ask me to share more of the things that I eat.

If you have been following me here for awhile then you may already know that I transitioned into becoming vegan last year…Whoa! I still cannot believe that it has been a year already…that time certainly flew by super fast. Anyway, you may see non-vegan recipes here and that is because I still cook and prepare meals for my family that is not vegan. And yes I still cook meat products for them, but I will share with you that I noticed that it has become much easier to prepare a vegan and non-vegan meal at the same time by making few adjustments here and there.

I have also noticed that my family consumes way more vegetables and my meat grocery bill has decreased significantly. I can usually get 2 meals from 1 pound of meat and that includes having leftovers. I’ve also been able to incorporate more meatless meals into my mealtime rotation…’ Why Hello Meatless Mondays!’ Do I miss meat? Not really…the only time that I even notice that it is an issue is when I go out to dinner or have meals at a friend’s house and I have to make changes so that I can dine out or share a meal with them.

My hope in sharing more of my meals is that it will change your perception of what vegans actually eat. I am still surprised at the looks that I get when people see me eating more than salads. So with that being said, I will gladly share more of ‘What I Ate’ with you.

I have become a huge fan of Kite Hill yogurt (not sponsored), which I buy from Whole Foods. This yogurt is made with almond milk, has few ingredients, and is so rich and creamy. To me, it has the texture of custard. So when I came across their ravioli options, I had to give them a try and since I didn’t want to top it with a tomato-based pasta sauce I decided a cashew cream sauce would pair perfectly with it.

This meal was so delicious and filling and I would certainly buy this again as a quick dinner option.

And yes I did have a big salad mainly made up of greens with this meal.

    Hmm… delicious. I like the idea of it being easy to make side-by-side dishes with just a few changes.
    And I love ravioli anything.

      I love ravioli too and I was so glad to find this vegan option. I love cooking a semi-homemade meal when I can…Its so fast!

    Ravioli is one of my favorite types of pasta, but I haven’t been able to find any gluten-free spaghetti so it’s been a long time since I’ve eaten some ravioli. If I could gluten-free mushroom ravioli I would be SO Happy 🙂

      Mine too!! I missed having ravioli so I was so glad to find this as an option. Target carries the brand called 3 Bridges that has a gluten free cheese ravioli that I have seen before, not sure if you are able to have the dairy though.
