Picture of Health

As it is easy to be worn out and infected with germs this time of year, I am trying to arm my system with the right nutrients.
 Green juice above, bran muffins below.
 Blueberries with the leftover bits of Nut Butter Balls.
I upgraded my mushroom to a portobello. Equally as delicious as the baby bellas. Filled with cashew cream, spinach, shallots, and breadcrumbs. Roasted brussel sprouts. 
 A couple days of lunch prep, including another Happy Herbivore recipe, from the Light & Lean series: Leftover Pot Pie.  Basically three cups of any kinds of veggies - fresh and frozen cooked in broth.
 A gravy of nooch, almond milk, and herbs.
 And a biscuit topping (whole wheat flour, baking powder, almond milk) that I didn't quite spread out to the edges. Oh well. Next time! The kitchen smelled amazing.
See you on Wednesday!

  1. What a fantastically easy pot pie recipe. Sounds delicious too. I know you like those HH recipes. Do you subscribe, or are they from her books?
    Bran muffins are a great idea. I haven't baked in a while since, well, you know the oven story.

    1. I have three of her cookbooks - this recipe is from a digital copy on my kindle app. It was on sale for 99 cents!

  3. Oooh yum! The veggies in the pot pie looks amazing, what a perfect cozy meal for this time of the year. I'm glad you are taking care of yourself and hopefully the germs stay away from you and you can remain healthy :) The stuffed mushrooms have been looking really good, I definitely need to try those out sooner rather than later!

    Stay healthy!

    1. I'm so glad I made it! I need to work on the flavor of the crust a little bit.

      I just need to work on sleeping more, and then I'll be close to "healthy"! I hope you're having a great week!

  4. Pot pies, muffins and brussels sprouts are super cosy foods. I know what you mean about feeling worn out in January - food is pretty much all that's worth getting out of bed for!

  5. Good call on immunity boosting foods, i'm just getting over a cold but half my office is sick with something....
    Pot pie is a perfect wintery meal! True confession: as a kid my mom used bisquick for dumplings and pot pies or cobblers- and it's accidentally vegan! I actually used some for a pot pie a while back and it's freaking good and totally fool proof.
    I swear i have been thinking about stuffed mushrooms since your last post and now with the portabellos i obviously have to make these this weekend

    1. So many colleagues are sick right now! Falling like flies!

      My Mom used Bisquick, too! She probably still does! Ha ha! I don't hunk I realized that it was accidentally vegan - I'm going to look for it!

  6. Never heard of Bran Muffins keeping the germs away. Must be something about those Muffins I am not aware of.

    I made Pot Pie back in Virginia using store bought vegan pie crust. Worked out really well and better than anything I could make from scratch.

    Keep washing your hands!

    1. Good to know about vegan pie crust! I hadn't thought to do that!

      Bran muffins are nutrient dense, so it's more like a boost to the system rather than a germ killer. 😉
