1 Month Anniversary

I can't believe first of all that another month has come and gone and second that Saturday is our 1 month anniversary of being Vegan. I am proud to say that during this month I ate 98% vegan only had a few slip ups which were small. Now am I feeling the best ever, I'm not sure about that but I do feel good. My energy level is high, my digestion is good and my migraines are a smidge better than normal I would go out on a limb to say. 
Verdict- I am going to continue, another month goal of eating Vegan 90% and this coming month I will need that 10%.... my Mom arrives next week. And yes, I am cooking Vegan for her each night but we are going to splurge and get burgers one day and my lunches most likely will not all vegan!

Now, to celebrate the one month anniversary I have another GREAT recipe to share with you! I LOVED this. I made Lentil Sloppy joes on Sunday and then they also made the BEST leftovers!!! I will say cook your lentils all the way until soft. That took mine 45minutes. If they are too hard, they will be dry and this recipe won't be as good!
 I got this recipe from this blog HERE


  • 1 cup dried lentils rinsed well
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 medium green pepper diced
  • ½ small yellow onion diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • ½ tbsp mustard
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Hamburger buns
  • Optional for serving: onions pickles, sliced cheese


  1. Place your lentils and water in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.
  2. Once the water is boiling reduce the heat to medium and let them cook for about 20 minutes or until tender. Drain liquid and set aside.
  3. While your lentils are cooking in a wide pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Sautee onion and bell pepper for about 5-8 minutes or until soft and onion is translucent.
  4. Add in tomato sauce, tomato paste, mustard, and spices. Mix until combined. Reduce heat to about medium-low.
  5. Add cooked lentils to sauce mixture and let cook for another 5-10 minutes or until sauce is thickened and flavorful. Add in any more flavorings you might need.
  6. Serve piled on a hamburger bun
If you follow me on Insta then you see these great micro greens on top of most of any dinners and I am OBSESSED! They are Sunflower Greens and they actually have a spicy bite to them, I got them at my regular grocery store and they were prefect on top of the sloppy joes as well!!!
Enjoy guys!
