Tofu Tuesday

I was actually going to start a Tofu Tuesday thread on our family blog, but it’s much more fitting here. We’ve been strict vegetarians for I think about three years now, although we lapsed for a couple months earlier this year when we thought we’d try Body for Life. I felt horrendous after adding meat back into my diet, so quickly cut that back out after a week or two. The cheese…. well, it took a little longer to adios that from the house. Now we’re back on track. The only non-vegan items in the house are Eggbeaters, and those are for the guys — my husband and two little boys, ages 5 and not-quite-2.

Anyway, my veg*n tip for this week: get thyself to Fat Free Vegan, an absolutely must visit for any vegetarian. When we first went veg, we lived off SusanV’s recipes for months while I figured out the ins and outs of cooking without meat and dairy. Today it’s unseasonably blustery and rainy, so I’m making one of our favorite comfort foods, SusanV’s split pea soup. Her recipes are always healthy and delicious, and range from so-simple-a-child-could-do-it to nearly gourmet. Try it, you’ll like it!



  1. It’s nice to “meet” you. 🙂 Glad you played along this week and I look forward to seeing you in weeks to come. Thanks for the recommendation. I’m heading over now.
