This past weekend, I made some dishes from two of my favorite cookbooks, The Kind Diet and Veganomicon.  I have found both of these books to be very helpful in suggesting new recipes and introducing me to foods that I have never tried (or even heard of) before.  These "healthier" foods are a yummy alternative to eating the same things all of the time, and they also leave me feeling so much more energetic.  I never realized how many vegetarian options there are out there (and not just salads!)  I find myself being more excited about food than I have ever been before.  I love putting good nutrition into my body and enjoying the taste at the same time.

*I am not posting the actual recipes because of copyright laws, but both of these cookbooks can easily be ordered off of Amazon.

Red Radish Tabbouleh


This tabbouleh is flavored perfectly and I love how fresh the veggies taste.  (It is much better than the kind that you buy at the store.)  Along with this dish, I ate homemade hummus, carrots, and pita bread.

Pineapple Cashew Quinoa Stir-Fry


I would recommend that everybody try this dish because it is so delicious and sweet that you will forget that you are eating something healthy!  Even my husband loved it, so I will definitely be making it again sometime soon.  The only drawback is that there is a large amount of prep work for this particular recipe, but the end result is totally worth it!

I can't wait to find time to cook some more recipes out of these books.  This week, I plan on making Quinoa with Basil and Pine Nuts from The Kind Diet, and the Spinach Lasagna Rolls and Stuffed Zucchini again from our girls' cooking date.
