An Update and a Guest Post.

Today’s mission:  operation PACK THE CLOSET.

Seriously, WHERE did all these clothes come from?  I have my work cut out for me!

This move is starting to make me go craaaaaaaaaaaazy!

My kitchen is in a pretty sad state right now, and I feel bad that I haven’t been able to show you guys any fun recipes or cooking.  I also feel bad that I am not EATING any fun recipes or cooking!  English muffins and bell peppers are starting to get reaaaally old.

But even though I haven’t been able to show any fun food in a week or two, you guys are in luck.  The lovely Anne P. was nice enough to offer up a few of HER favorite (VEGAN!) recipes to share with my wonderful readers.  Take it away, Anne!

Hey, The Front Burner readers! My name is Anne and I write the food and fitness blog fANNEtastic food.

In the past two years, I:

  • Quit my cubicle job
  • Moved to Europe to teach English
  • Moved back to the U.S. (after an awesome 9 months teaching in Prague)
  • Completed a year’s worth of prerequisites to go back to school for a big career change

All of this culminated in moving this August from Washington D.C. (so bummed to have JUST missed Emily!) to Chapel Hill, NC to start a Masters of Public Health in Nutrition! If all goes well, in 2.5 years I will be a Registered Dietitian!

On my blog, I share a lot of healthy recipes and quick packable lunches. Since the fall is nearly upon us and work and school are ramping back up for most, I thought I would share some of my favorite quick and easy vegan dinners. Enjoy!

BBQ Chickpeas with Sweet Potatoes & Bok Choy

If you love BBQ, you will LOVE this recipe. It’s quick, easy, and delicious.

Almond Soy Sauce Baked Tofu

Seriously the easiest baked tofu you will ever make – there are only 3 ingredients!

Deconstructed Quinoa Burrito

Like a Mexican party in your mouth!

I hope you guys got some fun new ideas for quick, easy, and delicious dinners! I’m not a vegetarian myself, but I love vegetarian and vegan meals, especially when I’m in a rush – eating healthy really doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or time consuming!

Thanks again to Emily for inviting me to do a guest post and I hope you guys will come check out my blog, fANNEtastic food, for more recipes and quick meal ideas. :)

Many thanks to Anne for bringing some FOOD back to this blog.  :)  I am hungry just looking at that tofu.  I have a few exciting things planned for tomorrow.  Must take time to pamper myself and stay sane in the midst of moving chaos – stay tuned!
