A Typical Day of Food for My Family: Not All Vegan

6 Jun

Tonya asked what I feed my family everyday.  Her family is all vegan but she is looking for more ways to get raw foods into their diet.  Well, remember my Confessions?  My boys eat at least 50% raw everyday, but they want their organic meat 3 times a week too.  Tonya and readers out there, I would love YOUR tips on how you get everyone in your family to eat Vegan!  😉

I’ll post on a typical vegan food day for us later.  In the meantime, here is what my family ate today.

Breakfast

Peach (organic and local!) and Banana Breakfast Pudding topped with Flax Meal ‘Sprinkles’ for me and hubby

Bananas for son

Water to drink

Lunch

Red Lettuce and Cucumber Salad for all of us – I didn’t think my son would finish a whole bowl, but he did enjoy this simple salad.  The cucumber was freshly picked by a friend, so maybe that helped!

An additional Avocado, Greens and Hemp Seed Salad for me

Homemade Vegan Pasta Alfredo for the boys with raw toppings (cherry tomatoes and corn) if they wish

Water or herbal tea to drink

Snack

Blueberries (freshly picked by our new friend)

Apple Almond Sandwiches

Dinner

Green Smoothie

I Can’t Get Enough Of This Kale Salad

Homemade Organic Roasted Chicken with Baked Potato ‘Chips’ – my son has been asking for roast chicken for a few weeks and my husband for potato chips, so today their wishes came true.  😉  I ordinarily would poach the chicken to make ‘pulled-chicken’ and combine it with an olive oil dressing, serve it with brown rice or homemade tortillas and various raw toppings (thinly sliced lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, etc).
