I'm looking for some delicious, filling vegan, gluten-free breakfasts and lunches that are relatively low-starch and don't use too many fake meats.
I've decided to try Mark Bittman's "vegan before 6"
routine for health and environmental reasons. I like that it's a fairly moderate plan oriented around reducing one's meat consumption in a semi-structured way without going crazy about it.
I was a vegetarian a long time ago and a vegan for about two seconds, so I know a lot of the basics, but that was in college when neither I or any of my veggie friends knew much about cooking or nutrition (I have occasional flashbacks to horrible veggie curries).
Right now, this is my routine, and I'd love some ideas on how to veganify it:
Breakfast: either eggs and toast or cereal with milk. Obviously, I could just use soy or almond milk with the cereal, but to be honest I haven't found any gluten-free cereals that I love and that keep me full, so I'd appreciate some other breakfast suggestions. Not a fan of "non-breakfast foods" for breakfast or of tofu scramble (sorry!). I do like smoothies though!
Lunch: This is where I really need some ideas. Usually I have either leftovers from dinner, a frozen meal from Trader Joe's, or takeout from the Thai restaurant near my office.
I'm thinking that for this plan, I'll rely a lot on salads plus ... something. I'm already thinking I'll be baking a lot of tofu and making some bean salads. In the winter, cooking and freezing soups in bulk will be good but I never want soup in the summer. So ideas for protein-rich (or otherwise filling) summery things I can make ahead and have with my salads would be great.
Oh, and I'm doing a CSA so I'll have plenty of veggies to work with, at least through September.
