{meatless monday} — “this is the healthiest superbowl party i’ve ever been to”

4 Feb

hA! i’m still sort of giggling from the comment one of my friend’s made at the superbowl gathering my former roomie had this weekend.  and what a game!  way to go, ravens – so well-deserved!!

since going pretty much 100% vegan recently, it’s hard to eat out or even go to a friend’s house to eat, because basically everything that is prepared has some form of dairy or animal product in it.  so i brought over my own food and made something easy to munch on for the big game.  it was a hit!

i also toasted some falafel in the oven and chopped up some celery, carrots, and mixed sweet peppers as well as some fruit.  one healthy spread, indeed. and all 3 dudes gobbled it up!

“this is the healthiest superbowl party i’ve ever been to”  – one of them exclaimed.  i laughed so hard, it was so great.

i love making salsa and guacamole.  for one, it IS super healthy – look at the ingredients!  and for two, it’s way easy and you can use the same ingredients for both – just use the tomatoes as the star for the salsa and the avocados as the star for the guac!  the food processor can handle both – just blend to your desired consistency.  one day, i may try this in the vitamix…

avocados are so amazingly good for you.  they can actually help lower cholesterol and raise the good kind – they are full of healthy fats!
