Hello foodies! I figured while I’m working my tush off today lifting furniture and moving boxes, I’d leave you with this pre-written post on the deets of my Clean Out the Kitchen Challenge from the last few weeks all the way up to move day! All just in time for…
What I Ate During the Challenge: (previously un-posted eats)
Oatbran topped with steamed broccoli, fried egg, and Vegan Broccoli ‘n Cheese Sauce
TJ’s Veggie Masala Burg topped with Double Spinach Ravioli filling
and roasted red peppers
Now, I know you guys have already seen the pumpkin pudding, but I feel like it has to be in this post since I must’ve eaten it like half a dozen times! Good stuff!
So how did I do? I’ll let you decide!
Not too shabby, eh?
Now that the challenge is over, I’ve realized that I have plenty of dried beans and grains to keep me busy for a while. I’m seeing future breakfasts featuring more oat groats and buckwheat, and more dinners using up my huge supply of bulgur that I was so excited about when I purchased months ago, but which I have only used once.
I enjoyed the way this challenge forced me to think a bit outside the box with my meals…combining fresh foods with prepackaged ones and coming up with new uses for sauces and spreads. Not to mention the my latest obsession with homemade hummus!
There’s something about moving into a brand new house, that makes me want to keep this “spring cleaning” in the kitchen going for a while. I do plan on replenishing my produce supply (I have been craving a banana for a week) and my precious almond milk, but I think I have at least a few more
weeks months before I’d have to worry about going hungry! 😉
What’s something in your pantry/cupboard that’s been collecting dust?
