Day 121 Creative meals on the plan

I'm in the last days of a long writing retreat on Whidbey Island north of Seattle. Of the 5 of us, 4 are on a version of the Plan and the 5th is happy to eat this way, so we have eating mostly plant-based meals with a little meat. Here are some of the delicious creative ideas that have crossed our plates.

Pork sausages browned with red peppers. Served with zucchini "pasta" (julienned zucchini strips lightly sauteed and served with a marinara sauce to which cooked red lentils had been added). Fabulous!

A black bean and brown rice salad with avocado, cherry tomatoes, and parsley (dressed with lemon juice and a little olive oil). A chicken salad of apple, celery, avocado with lime juice and a little olive oil

Roasted sweet potatoes and chicken sausages with a grain-free tabouli of spinach, chia seeds, lemon juice, parsley.

Roasted veggies with brown rice and a simple peanut sauce.

A crock pot Indian stew with a coleslaw of cabbage, apple, and sunflower seeds

Big bowls of fresh raspberries from the retreat center's garden. Fresh strawberries from the island's farmers market.

We have been eating great!
