    Good Eats: Dinner, Lunch, Snacks with @gardein

    PicsArt_1371513266746I can’t remember the last time I cooked, and I mean cooked, cooked. As in cooked a good meal. Ever since taking on a promotion, and another job, the only thing I have time for is sleep, and even then I don’t get much. So I’ve basically been living off of avocados (lots of avocados), cucumbers, the occasional Sullivan & Bleeker red velvet cookie, and these AMAZING new meatless products by Gardein that I recently discovered.


    This was the first time I tried Gardein products, and it was a truly marvelous experience. I meant to take a picture, but I was so hungry, and had inhaled my food before I realized that I needed to take a picture… lol

    Some of you know that I was vegetarian for a while, then I fell of the wagon (sh*t happens), but I recently went back to being a vegetarian at the beginning of April, and so far I’m loving it! I was a meat eater for the longest time, and I find that sometimes I crave the texture of meat, but not necessarily the meat itself, this is wear Gardein foods come in. They are meatless, a meaty texture, have lots of protein (Garden+Protein= Gardein), and they are DELICIOUS. Did I mention that they don’t take more than 8 minutes to prepare?? *does church dance* 20130417_221002

    100 calories you say? And it tastes great? I’m in.20130427_214558

    Oh… then I had these bad boys.


    So delicious! (I like to eat my food out of tupperware, don’t judge me.)


    I made a Chili with these: chopped them up, threw in some red kidney beans, mushrooms, and peppers, but they too didn’t make it to photo time, as my hunger got the best of me lol.20130427_214705

    I can’t stress how good these Gardein meatless products are… they are SOOOOOO GOOD!20130429_203725

    Praise the Lord, this was so good!20130430_194140

    You think that they just look like they taste good… No, they taste Fantastic! This is one of my absolute favourites!20130430_194158

    In addition to the ones above, I’ve had the sizzling szechuan beefless strips and the sweet and tangy barbecue wings, and I can’t wait to try EVERYTHING else that they offer. I’m still living off of lots of avocados and cucumbers, but these Gardein goodies have definitely brought the spark back into my dinners, lunches, and snacks!
