Getting Instant Inspiration for your Daily Meals

One of those questions many of us face on a daily basis is “What am I making for dinner tonight?”. If you’re like us, and you also have breakfast and lunch at home, then you can multiply that little question times three. That’s a lot of meals over a week, a month, or a year, and although we’re creatures of habit and tend to reach for a few meals and recipes over and over again, sometimes it’s nice to vary things up.

Variety is also important as vegans, since eating lots of different fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, beans, grains etc., provides us with a large array of nutrients, and what is of equal importance, there’s a lot of pleasure and satisfaction present when we’re eating different foods we enjoy and we’re looking forward to our meals and snacks.

This was one of the things that inspired us to create our online program My Brownble. We wanted to give you an ongoing supply of ideas, and something not a lot of people know about me, is that I use our program too! There are close to 300 videos in the program as of right now and that continues to grow every week, which means I can’t remember half of them off the top of my head, so sometimes when I’m planning out meals for the week, or I’m in the train coming home unsure of what to make for dinner, I scroll through the program to remember old time favorites of ours.

One of the biggest reasons is that when he wakes up and is thinking about vegan croissants with jams and jellies, peanut butter, sweet porridges or cereal, he walks into the kitchen, and there I am, spatula in hand, sautéing mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, kale, or getting sauerkraut out of a jar and the hummus out of the fridge. He calls me a breakfast alien. I just call myself a savoury breakfast eater, which is actually more common than you might think!

I love having jams and jellies and croissants as much as the next person, but I always need something savory, and I simply don't think that vegetables and breakfast clash!

"Says who?!" is what I always tell Carlos when he says vegetables and breakfast together define my alien status.
