Today is officially the last day of the challenge I took upon myself to 🚫 meat out of my diet (with the exception of fish). It wasn't a difficult task for me as some ppl assumed, mainly because I found and whipped up some awesome, delicious dishes without the meat, I still was able to meat my protein goals, I didn't have any cravings or withdrawals, I felt filled and satisfied with every meal, I didn't feel weak. I actually felt stronger, more energetic and focused (can't say I no meat had any direct correlation to this) but I felt no negative effect. My biggest dilemma now that this challenge is over, is do I wanna go back to even eating meat again? 😐😏 #26daychallenge
ddwoods1 : 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
msfreckles2u : I did pretty good, I must say.. 👍What's next????
king_mark_lobin : @ddwoods1 thank u 😊

If you love nuggets (I think basically everyone does) then these are def worth trying. Cauliflower Nuggets Simple enough and can be made quickly (I made these this morning before work) and they're low cal, low carb, gluten free and all that good stuff, can be eaten by themselves or with your fave dipping sauce #26daychallenge #day20
radicalthinker_g : You and this cauliflower lol. Next you will make roti skin? Lol
radicalthinker_g : Looks delicious though
king_mark_lobin : @radicalthinker_g well actually I do have a ...😉 lol

So it's #day19 of this #26daychallenge not having withdrawals or cravings so far (only ate fish about 2-3 times so far) and I'm enjoying these delicious meals I've been preparing and the many ways to get around having to eat meat and meat alternatives. I've seen these Meatless select Chik'n sliders numerous times before, so now was as good a time as any to try it. I grilled it with some onions and sweet and sour sauce and had it with brown rice, spinach and avocado. Not bad at all. Same look and texture as meat, taste ok but I think I can still jazz it up a bit w some spices. Still a good lunch. #26daychallenge #day19 #lunchflow
mssarcasm5 : Love your creativity!!

I honestly don't know what words to use to describe this pineapple fried rice beyond absofreakinloutely delicious. Only thing would prob make it better would be cauliflower "rice" (will try that soon) I think this is best fried rice I've ever tasted, no lie😋😊🙌💯 props to @beauty_isth3_beast for the advice with preparing the tofu (my absolute first time cooking tofu) #26daychallenge #day18 #lunch
king_mark_lobin : Pineapple Fried Rice: 1 cup uncooked rice 8-12 ounces extra firm tofu 1 bell pepper 1 small/medium pineapple (you can use canned pineapple if needed) 1 cup frozen peas and carrots 1 egg 2 cloves of garlic 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/4 cup chopped green onions 1/3 cup cashew halves Drain the tofu from the liquid in its package. Place on a plate, lined with a paper towel. Place another paper towel on top of the tofu, then a second plate on top of the that paper towel. Now place something heavy on top, like a large can of stewed tomatoes (or whatever you have on hand). Allow the tofu to continue to drain for 12-15 minutes. Cut into small cubes. Sprinkle a tablespoon of cornstarch and little salt over all the cubes, tossing. Then bake at 350°F for 25-35 minutes, flipping them half way through the bake time. You can bake tofu days in advance and store, refrigerated, in tupperware until you need it. Chop up the veggies and thaw the frozen peas and carrots. Heat a large pan over high heat. Add in a tablespoon of oil and cook all the veggies until they just begin to soften (2-3 minutes). Remove to a plate. Reduce the heat down to medium. Crack the egg into the hot pan. Swirl to scramble, this will cook very quickly (a minute or less). Remove to the same plate with the veggies. Reduce the heat to medium/low. Add in another tablespoon of oil. Cook the cold rice in the oil for 2-3 minutes. In a small bowl or cup stir together the: soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and minced garlic. Pour half this mixture over the rice, stir so every piece gets coated. Now add back in the veggies, egg, and baked tofu. Pour the rest of the sauce over the mixture. Stir in the green onions and nuts. Cook just until everything is hot (another 3-4 minutes). Note: I used edamame instead of green peas and oyster sauce instead of fish sauce

Just so anyone's that skeptical knows, these cauliflower tacos hold together as well as regular tacos. They're super easy to make, healthy, low calorie and taste great. So if you haven't tried this, I highly recommend it, especially if you love tacos. FYI a regular taco skin is approx 110cals, each of these cauliflower tacos skins are approx 15-30 cals if my math is correct, so you would need to eat 3-4 to equal I reg taco skin (toppings not incl) enjoy I did 😋😉 #26daychallenge #day17 #meatlessmonday #ithinkimbecomingaveganorvegetarian #cleaneats #eatcleantraindirty
