What We Ate: Easter Day

2 Comments

Hello there! Today was a lovely Sunday full of great weather and good food with my family. Recently I transitioned from vegetarian to vegan and it feels really good. It is such a myth that vegetarians and vegans don’t eat great and exciting food. Since I am the only vegan in the house, along with a mini-vegetarian, and a carnivorous husband, I sometimes have to make two different dishes or half and half a dish. Most times neither. Today my hubby wanted “buttery” cinnamon rolls so I obliged him and made some grand buttery cinnamon rolls with chopped almonds for him. I made the same for myself, but veganized it. Below are pics of today’s menu.

Breakfast:
Homemade cinnamon rolls. We don’t put icing on them because they are delicious on their own. Plus, it’s a way to cut some calories/fat/sugar.

Lunch:
No photos (sorry), but I made breaded cauliflower and we ate leftover vegan corndogs.

Dinner:
My husband made chilli. The man only makes a few dishes, but they are GOOD.

Dessert:
This was so exciting! I made vegan chocolate peanut butter eggs! I modified a recipe from the website Chocolate-Covered Katie (she makes AMAZING desserts). Instead of making my own chocolate I melted some “Enjoy Life” chocolate chips and dipped the peanut butter eggs in.
