Choosing Raw's Fennel, Cabbage, and Carrot Slaw with Poppyseed Dressing (Vegan)

This is an original recipe from Gena's fabulous website, www.choosingraw.com. I put it in here as it's a new favorite and will make life easier. The dressing has very little oil and a great amount of healthy fat. I tweaked the recipe for what I had on hand. This dressing tastes exactly like unhealthy poppyseed dressings, so good!

One-week smoothie

Kale, almond milk, bananas, peach, blueberries, soy protein powder--one heck of a green shake to start your vegan morning.

Bean, eggplant, and tomato soup

This is a great, no-added fat alternative to fagioli soup.

Vegan Kale Soup

Very hearty and filling, made this up while I was cleaning out my veggie bin in the fridge. This is very low fat, low sodium. It's incredibly filling and beautiful to look at with the colors. I think the sodium is higher on the nutrition info as I rinse the beans before adding them.

Mediterannean Lentil Soup

This is great for those of us trying to find other sources of protein besides meat. This will remind you of your favorite Mediterranean restaurant's lentil soup.

Angel hair with peas and faux cream sauce

I LOVE Alfredo sauce. I had a huge craving for it the other night, so I thought I would try my hand at making a low-fat version. I substituted olive oil for some of the butter since it is considered a healthier source of fat.

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

I can't claim this recipe as I found it on SusanV's blog: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/. She has certainly made my transition to veganism much easier as I love all things cheese. Her recipes are amazing and comforting, so check them out. Even my DH liked this recipe. I added some frozen peas just for him.

Rachael Ray's Meatloaf Muffins

These are a great way to sneak in vegetables, and they are filling. You put them in muffin pans at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, and they're perfectly done. I serve two muffins with a baked potato and steamed veggies. It's a very satisfying meal.
