Nope, I'm not vegetarian. However, I do give my digestive system a break and switch up my source of food nutrients.
When I am eating meat I usually have organic chicken, beef or fish. Moreover, I am totally good with tofu, tempeh, lots of beans and veggie's. My patients always ask what I eat so I though I'd share a sample of my week of dinners, vegetarian style. This is what is on the menu for dinner this week:
Nori Wraps with Miso Soup
http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2756 (I use short grain brown rice and Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids instead of soy sauce); http://allrecipes.com/recipe/miso-soup/ I do not use dashi and use organic extra firm tofu
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/danny-boome/eggplant-lasagna-recipe/index.html* I also made a ricotta tofu based substitute that was so good: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2756

Portabello Mushroom, broccoli, asparagus, and red onion stir fry with glass bean thread noodles
I stir-fry/season with olive oil, Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids, sesame oil, fish sauce, red pepper flakes and fresh basil.
Pan roasted tempeh and summer vegetables with Mediterranean charmoula
http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1811. This is really tasty and EASY. Great paired with a big yummy salad.
Quinoa with broccoli and cashews
http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/1801. This is more of a ‘keep in the fridge and snack on’ dish for my household.
Quinoa and sweet potato cakes
http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/3143. This is another to pair with either raw pumpkin soup or a big salad.
Raw-ish Pasta Alfredo
I use the Alfredo sauce recipe from Alissa Cohen’s Living on Raw Food cookbook: 1 c. each cashews, pine nuts and macadamia nuts, 3 tbsp lemon juice, 2 cloves garlic and 2 tbs water. Blend until creamy in food processor. I love the sauce over kelp noodles. I also like to add halved grape tomatoes.
There it is. Hope you enjoy!
