meatless meals....in a pinch!

One of my New Year's goals was to eat less meat. I used to be a terribly picky eater - I was a force to reckon with when Christian and I first got together over 16 years ago! Thank goodness for his encouragement to try new things, but now in my golden years (ha!), I am appreciating more foods. Vegetables in particular, and we both decided to cut back on the meat this year. These are a few quick lunch ideas for my rushed break in coming home and letting out Eddie midday.

Country cheesy eggs with steamed asparagus and grits: 
(I used to love capturing Baby in my dessert photos, so Eddie gets to have his turn now!)
The grits I made the day before, and the asparagus I threw in a pan and let steam while I walked Eddie around the yard. By the time I came back in, it was done and the eggs took no time to scramble.

Baked potato with brussel sprouts and tofu, topped with nutritional yeast. 
The baked potato was nuked for about 7 minutes in the microwave while I walked Eddie, and the brussel sprouts were left over from the day before. The tofu was quick and easy to prepare and crisp up, then topped with nutritional yeast before piling it on the baked potato.
