But the big focus for me is seeing what they eat. Her family is vegetarian, and she has great recipes that incorporate lots of healthy fruits and veggies. In particular, I have bookmarked several of her blog posts and have referenced them several times. Here are they are:
- I used her recipe for a lentil-quinoa "meatloaf" as the basis for my own BBQ vegetarian "meatloaf", which was a hit with my family. I was really glad to have her experience guide me through making my first attempt at something like this.
- I love her instructions for working with tofu, I pretty much follow what she does except I leave my tofu in large slices for easier flipping while cooking. And when it comes to cooking, I "dry-fry" mine, meaning I don't put anything in the skillet at all and press as much moisture out as it cooks so it has a nice brown crust at the end with no added fat.
- She was a great inspiration for how she preps food for the week by roasting a batch of veggies. After finding her post last year, I oven-roasted many batches of veggies, which we promptly inhaled when topped with hummus "sauce".
- And I really appreciated her review of powdered peanut butters. I wanted an honest evaluation of the various options, particularly since I use and like PB2, but wanted to know how a person whose opinion I trust would rate the other similar products.
