Plant-Based Journey Weeks 7 and 8

***This post contains affiliate links.

I've finally broken my weight-loss stall and am now down 13 pounds!  Things are going really well.  Our group from the nutrition study has not met in several weeks, but I still have a few things to share with you.

First of all, I tried a few new products.  The first was a coffee creamer.  I'm looking for one that is dairy-free (of course), creamy, and not sweetened.  Here's the one I tried made of almond milk and coconut cream.

This creamer isn't as creamy as I would like it to be, but it does not taste sweet and so I like it much better.  If you know of an unsweetened non-dairy creamer that is more creamy, let me know!  (I've already tried Silk creamer and it's too sweet.)

Next, I tried vegan cheese, which is pricey, but tastes good.  Here's the kind I bought.

I made several really good recipes this week.  Click on the name of each one for a link to the recipe.  The first two came from the PlantPure Nation Cookbook.  Here's where you can get it:

Twice-Baked Broccoli Potatoes

Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Vegan Ranch Dip

Easy Black Bean Soup

And finally, one dinner I had that falls into the category of "vegan junk food." It's vegan buffalo wings from Morning Star Farms.  Very spicy and very yummy!  I dipped them in the Vegan Ranch Dip from the Cauliflower Buffalo Wings recipe above.  How they make the taste and texture like chicken, I'll never know, but they are a great option for a night when you don't have time to cook and still want to stick to your plant-based diet.

So that's it for this week, I'll be back soon with another update on my progress and more great recipes and resources.  Be sure to sign up to follow me through email and you'll be notified when I upload new blog posts.  Also, be sure to check out my YouTube channel—Little Green Farmhouse—a channel about everything home-related!
