Hunger Issues 
This past week worked out okay, but more than before I felt hungry ALL the time. At first I thought it was because I wasn’t eating enough, but then I had a theory I might not be getting enough protein, and the hunger was just there because of that. I’ve planned to make sure I’m getting more protein this week—poached eggs in the morning and more beans in my meals—so we’ll see how I feel next week. If I continue to have this constant hunger, I might try a whey protein shake Liz recommended.

Menu Planning:
Shaved Asparagus Pizza, tonight
Curried Cauliflower, tomorrow
Moroccan Eggplant and Cumin-Spiced Tomatoes, Tuesday
–plus I still have some tofu to use up at some point….

Random Meals from the Week
Morning Star Farm’s Black Bean Burger. Even the meat eaters thought these were tasty!
Trader Joe’s Paneer Tikka Marsala with Spinach Basmanti Rice. This was a staple long before this month. The meal is only $2.19 at Trader Joes, and if you cook it in the oven it doesn’t even feel like a frozen dinner.

Here are a few recipes people sent me I haven’t had a chance to try:

Portabello Mushrooms with Mediterranean Stuffing
From Libby

Cold Pasta Salad with Baby Artichokes
From the Parents
