Daily eating habits


Are we getting all we need?









It's easy to read books on nutrition but a bit harder putting things into practice when you are a new vegan family. I thought it might help if I made a list of our daily eating habits and if I'm missing out something major I guess I'm hoping you will point this out to me!

However, if I'm doing pretty well then you can use this as a guide!

Heidi - aged 2.
Breakfast: Sinlac dairy free infant porridge made with Soya milk fortified with B12- I add linseeds (for omega 3) and vitamin D drops. Fruit juice (no added sugar, half water *I cannot get Heidi to drink soya or rice milk so add to her food)
Snack: Toast with plant margarine &/or banana. Fruit Juice.
Lunch: Tomato & Lentil Soup / Potato cakes / Crackers & grapes (depends, sometimes she is not so hungry at lunchtime)
Snack: Almonds & grapes / Vegan biscuit
Dinner: Pasta with mushrooms, onion, leek, tomatoes / Veggie chilli made with kidney beans, lentils, soya flakes / Paella made with rice, squash, mushrooms, asparagus / Potato wedges and grilld marinated tofu (the latter she doesn't et much of). Fruit or soya yogurt
Supper: Toast or fruit

Miller - aged 8 months.
*Takes 3 nursing feeds per day plus 2 formula feeds
Breakfast: Infant non dairy porridge made with hot water or soya milk with B12 (I take a B12 supplement so he gets this in my milk too)
Snack: Toast strips or cheerios
Lunch: Same as Heidi or something simple like sliced cooked carrots
Snack: Cracker or rice cracker, banana
Dinner: Same as Heidi or mashed potatoes with veg
Supper: Biscuit or fruit yogurt

Matthew and I:
Breakfast: Cereal & or toast
Lunch: Crackerbread and tofutti spread / veggie sandwiches / soup /beans on toast / pasta and veg with tomato sauce
Dinner: Casseroles / Chilli / Pasta & veg / Vegetable Rice / Veggie sausages & mashed potatoes / Cheese free pizza / cottage pie / Stir Fry

Add to that the odd piece of cake and that pretty much sums it up!

Comments welcome, especially if you are longing to share a recipe! Remember thought that we cannot get a lot of items - no vegan cheese, flaxseed oil, only one type of tofu etc.... But I'm always up for trying something new!

I have been asked for my carrot cake recipe 3 times in the past 2 weeks so I must be doing something right!

Til next time..

I don't have any critique on the meals except that I would add a snack or two of fruit or nuts/seeds in there, especially if you aren't adding nuts/seeds to any of the main dishes.

There's a good recipe for Tennessee corn pone at Shmooed Food's site (http://shmooedfood.blogspot.com/2005/05/vegan-tennessee-corn-pone.html)
It uses basic ingredients and it is quite good, though I would enhance the flavor a bit by adding some sauteed onions, peppers, and other vegetables with the beans.

One of the recipes getting plenty of good reviews is chickpea cutlets from the new Veganomicon. The recipe requires vital what gluten, which may not be readily available. If interested I could give you the recipe -- the authors are actually very good about people sharing their recipes.

Jill Forrest said...

Thanks, I do try and add seeds and add walnuts if I make a carrot cake for example and I give both kids fruit for snacks. Thanks for the link, will check it out. Yes, vital wheat gluten, that's pushing it here! I might ask for it though, just to see the facial expressions!

follow-up said...

Here's the recipe. Hopefully you'll be able to pick up some vital wheat gluten during your UK trip. These freeze well, too.

Chickpea Cutlets
(from Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero)

1 cup cooked chickpeas
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup vegetable broth or water
2 tbs soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp Hungarian paprika
1/4 tsp dried rubbed sage
olive oil for frying

Place chickpeas and oil in mixing bowl and mash with a fork until no whole chickpeas remain.
Add remaining ingredients and knead for about 3 minutes until strings of gluten have formed.

Divide dough into four equal pieces. Flatten and stretch each piece into about a 6" by 4" rectangular shape. Heat the oil in a heavy bottom skillet over medium high heat. Add the cutlets and cook for 6 to 7 minutes on each side until lightly browned.

The cutlets can also be baked in a 375 degree (Fahrenheit) oven. Lightly oil each side and bake for 20 minutes. Turn them over and bake for another 10 minutes until golden brown.

I would additional vegetables and fruit (preferably fresh) to your daily intake also pick up the book by Becoming Vegan by Vesanto Melina & Brenda Davis. Vesanto is a vegan nutritionist and give sound advice regarding nutrition.

It's a nice to see another vegan mom. My daughter is four years old. She's been a vegan her entire life. Her first food of the morning is usually some type of fruit occasionally I slice it, but she usually likes me to puree it in the food processor. It's easily assimilated by the body since it's fruit (fruit takes about thirty minutes to digest) and it gives her digestive system a break. I'm a health/nutrition fanatic. :-)

Anyways, let me know what you think. Is training via the internet something you would do?

Some of these newer super-bright LED light products will light up on voltages ranging from 10 volts DC to 30 volts DC, while others will
run on as little as 8 volts. The bulbs can be bought from any electrical store and even on
the Internet. The much talked about drawback, the lack of evenly
distributed light in LED lamps too has been now satisfactorily sorted out by Sharp with their proprietary coating technique of the glass enclosure.
