Frugan = Frugal Vegan





I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I certainly did. 

I over did it yesterday with food, so today I am going to eat simply. A green smoothie for breakfast and an early lunch of salad with chickpeas and avocado.

I am going to try something different this week money wise. Shopping every day or every other day instead of a bigger shopping once a week. I think it will allow more variety. 

My mother will be here until Sunday, and then Monday I am going to get back to posting/writing recipes.

Frugan TOD: Mix leftover cranberry sauce with 5 spice powder, dijon and liquid smoke for a delicious glaze for tofu, tempeh, seitan or roasted veggies.

  6. I think it's impossible not to overdo it on Thanksgiving; The holiday pretty much demands it. A light post-feast salad sounds wonderful.

  7. Yay for fruganism! My little frugan heart burst for joy at 99 cent per pound brussels sprouts at Whole Foods so that's all I've eaten today :O

  8. Your salad looks so fresh and light — exactly what I should be eating instead of stuffing myself with leftovers. Thanks for the cranberry tip. Today I used some as a topping for pancakes, and I'm going to freeze some, but a glaze could be in my future.

  9. That salad looks wonderful and the marinade idea sounds great too. I wish i had remembered cranberry sauce this year.
