Firstly, there's lots of wow here. Congrats all, looks like your diets are really exciting!

Pet, I might have a photo of the salad, if I can find it I'll send it to you. Adzuki beans have a soft hull (like mung beans), don't need to worry about removing it. They are also a bit 'chalky' which means they will absorb some of the moisture when you're trying to get the tempeh mix dry enough enough to add the starter.

Halva's not really diet food so I don't want to crow about it too much here. But it's darn easy to make (that's the soft middle eastern halva made with semolina) and as a once a month or so indulgence I'm okay with it.

Wow, BILBY4, extraordinary. Grated swede? Swedes alarm me. I have been meaning to make grated butternut squash salad. I do like your idea of adding nuts. Rocket, red pepper, pumpkin sauce, with the additional flavors and textures of carrot and swede, I can't even imagine! Must be very pretty with all those colors. A question, do the adzuki beans need to be dehulled to make tempeh with the soy or do you make them as you do black beans and soy? Do you make your own halva? I have never tried. I'm afraid I would like it too much...

Breakfast - muesli with homemade coconut yoghurt.
Lunch - grated carrot and swede with rocket, red capsicum, crushed nuts and pumpkin sauce. With strips of grilled soy and adzuki bean tempeh.
Dinner - refried borlotti beans with steamed rye grain
Snack - semolina halva with raisins and walnuts

Sounds a bit gourmet, because... I was doing a vegan cooking demonstration at a festival today and had a lot of ingredients around :-)

Protein drink w/ground flax at my early morning workout. Homemade protein bar post workout. Little salad of pinto beans, kelp noodles, capers...for lunch. A blended green mess of a pound of kale, spirulina, chia seeds, ginger, apples...for my afternoon meal, I'll probably have 1/2 lb of collards w/ garlic, chili, coconut oil... and some sprouted lentils for dinner. I usually get hungry again before bed. That is a mystery at this time. Hmm....

I had my usual breakfast: whole wheat tortilla with sunbutter, wrapped around a banana, aka Banana In A Snuggie. (Yes, silly, I know.) Good Greens bar for a super fast lunch between clients (I have literally 5 minutes to change everything over, write charts, and eat!), pomegranate snack, thinking of making cream(less) of celery soup (because we somehow have three bags of celery!) and butternut phyllo handpies for dinner.

Today is a "raw" day of the week for me:
Breakfast a green smoothie - kale, banana, apple and orange with flax seeds.
Lunch veggie sticks with homemade guacamole, salad and fruit.
Dinner a big kale salad, avocado sliced and apple with raw almond butter.
Snack smoothie - leftover from breakfast.

I also am only drinking water today, spring water that is.

Welcome back! Let's see......breakfast was instant Quaker cinnamon and spice oatmeal with a banana and a soy latte. Mid morning snack was a handful of roasted peanuts, followed by lunch of Trader Joe's pumpkin soup (vegetarian), one slice of quinoa bread, peach flavored soy yogurt, an apple and dark chocolate (YUM)!!! Dinner will likely be pasta with rigatoni followed by trader joe's pumpkin pie and whipped cream (not vegan, unfortunately!).

For breakfast I had coffee w/ Silk creamer, a clementine, and 1/2 hemp bagel w/ peanut butter.

I have some tempeh marinating for tempeh "bacon" and I have a split pea soup cooking in the crockpot for dinner.

I'm just coming back to a Vegan diet, and this time, I'm trying to eat for health. So, I'd love it if you guys could just share what you're eating today. That just might spark some ideas for me, for the coming weeks. Thanks! emoticon
