What does a typical day of food look like for you?
Any suggestions would be great!
I was a vegetarian bachelor for 15 years, before meeting my wife. I always cooked really simple stuff, like these:
Whole wheat pasta with boiled lentils and jar spaghetti sauce
Whole wheat pasta with jar spaghetti sauce, with well-mashed tofu mixed into the sauce
Oatmeal with some well-mashed tofu mixed in, and raisins
Lentils and brown rice, with a little salt
Natural-type peanut butter, on whole grain bread
Canned black beans and canned corn, rinsed well, mixed in a bowl with some chopped avocado
Canned lentil soup, with some canned corn mixed in
Salad: Spinach or mixed greens with chopped tomatoes, plus dressing
Whole wheat pita bread with hummus
Small red or yellow potatoes, boiled whole until tender. Eat with a little salt or some ketchup
