New sandwich bread my ma bought for me

And I love it!!!
Arnold Sandwich thins 100% whole wheat. All I did was put some lettuce, a couple of slices of tomato, red onion, sharp cheddar and a little ranch and was good to go. A little celery and hummus on the side :)

Dinner

Brown rice, buffalo chickenless wings, and sautéed kale. For the kale, I put a little olive oil in a pan and added minced garlic. I then placed the kale in the pan with about 1/4 a cup of vegetable broth and a few squirts of Bragg's liquid aminos.

Adventures in Mock Meats Vol 4

Now THIS is what I'm talking about!!! I took those bland TJ nuggets back and exchanged them for the Morning star buffalo wings. #Winning! They are well seasoned and the taste does resemble chicken. Now if you don't like spicy, I would stay away from these. They are spicy but I love spicy food. I am extremely happy with this purchase. Thanks Morning star!!!

Adventures in Mock Meats Vol 3

So I decided to try Trader Joe's chickenless nuggets. They look like chicken nuggets and have a similar consistency but have no seasoning AT ALL. They weren't awful but they definitely were bland. I'm not sure if they can really be doctored up since they're already breaded but they need a lot more than some dipping sauce. Will likely not re-purchase.

Peace, Love, and Hair Grease

Tried some blue magic on my twists and the twist out was FAB!

Adventures in Mock Meats Vol 2



Which is better? IMO, the Morning Star crumbles are much better. I've done two lasagnas within the past month. One with the Yves crumbles and the other with Morning Star crumbles. To me, the Morning star had a better taste and tasted more like actual ground beef than the Yves. The Yves had a weird aftertaste to me, I'm not sure why. So now I know to stick with MorningStar crumbles. Their mock sausage crumbles are very good as well but are much harder to find. They carried them at the Publix near my old home but that's the only place I've ever seen them. Maybe I should call their corporate office :)

Adventures in Mock Meats Vol 1

So, I saw a recipe using Gardein's Chick'n scallopini online and decided to try them out.


I didn't use the online recipe because frankly too many ingredients were involved and I am being lazy this Sunday. I just wanted to do a simple sauteed "chicken". I unthawed one fillet (4 come in a bag) and added a little onion powder, garlic, pepper, and basil. The fillet's come lightly seasoned but I am well aware that one person's classification of seasoned can be bland to another, so I didn't leave the seasoning up to chance. I added a little olive oil to a pan and sauteed the breast for about 3 minutes on each side. When I say fab, I mean it. I was so pleasantly surprised with the likeness that the scallopini had to actual chicken. The consistency was a little softer but it was very close to that of real chicken. I sauteed it enough to get just a little browning and I think that really added to the flavor. Overall, I give the product a thumbs up and will likely saute another one to take to work for lunch. I didn't want to cook more than one just in case I didn't like it, but fortunately I loved it!
