    Faaabulous meals my friend.
    I’m loving the greenery 😉 But I should expect no less from you.

    Can’t wait for the yogurt!!!

  2. Krista says:

    It all looks tasty! Those square plates in your first pic look really cute under all that veggie-goodness!

  3. Kiki says:

    It took me the longest time to get the joke at the beginning of this post! I though hmmm is grains some fancy basketball term? Ha.

    Great meals! I love all the yummy ways you make veggies. Can’t wait for yogurt making!

  4. T says:

    I find myself thinking of your meals when I cook now, and trying to always add in a little something that I’m missing… a small salad, a handful of walnuts, a side of chutney… I just love the way you put things together!

  5. ttfn300 says:

    Yummy, love it!!

  6. DJ says:

    I’m SO waiting for your yogurt-making tutorial! And that kamut just looks so lovely and creamy!

  7. Cookiemouse says:

    Love those square plates!

  8. Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) says:

    I am so excited about the yogurt post, and can I just share my new love of SBL with you? I’ve been eating it everyday – almost as much as my almond butter. Now, that’s saying a lot! Thanks for tip.

  9. Kailey (SnackFace) says:

    I’m interested to see the yogurt-making post! Is this cheaper than buying yog? Taste better too? Gathering from your meals and posts, it will probably be both. And fabulous:)

  10. Laci says:

    Did you like the bckwheat, spelt or kamut? Sadly, I’ve probably only used one of the three, and that was spel for baking! 😉

  11. Maggie says:

    i love your grains :) your meals are so pretty and balanced.

  12. luckytastebuds says:

    wow that is SO awesome that you lived in Shanghai as well! That’s very cool! I hope you liked living there. The food is rediculously cheap, but i can’t imagine how difficult it would be getting your protein there (apart from tofu) if you’re vegan. And geez, you should be a chef! 😀

  13. ConsiderEatz! says:

    Broiled spag squash!? Do you do this AFTER your bake it? Sounds intriguing, I need to know! 😉

    I agree on the Ketchup, bleghh!

  14. sweetandfit says:

    CCV! i must have some of those curried veggies!

  15. foodsthatfit says:

    I love the pretty flowers! Just good meal ideas!

  16. Erin says:

    Will you come be my cook?
    I love your meals! So much variety and deliciousness!

  17. whatawalnut says:

    Nice flowers in that last shot. Very classy! Totally loving all the grains, too.

  18. talieworld says:

    All the new grains sound so interesting! And all yours meals look delish! :)

    This might be a stupid question but could you please explain the reference in the beginning of the post? I’ve seriously been rereading it for like ten minutes and I still can’t get it!

  19. River says:

    Yogurt-Making 101! Bring it on!!

    Chopsticks are fun! Too bad they are a big hazard when in my hands. You are a true master of chopsticks!

  20. vegannurse says:

    you and your grains, katie!

    i always feel intimidated by all these different types of grains, but after seeing them on your blog makes me want to try em all.

    hope you’re having a good week, girl!

  21. talesofexpansion says:

    haha, i think i’m going to make “look who we’ve got our grains on now” a part of my daily vocab :-)

  22. Marianne says:

    Lots of lovely pilafs – what do you do to them to make them so creamy?

  23. Erica says:

    Looks so great! I cannot wait for yogurt making! Have I ever told you how much I love your blog picture? It totally cracks me up every time I see it

  24. Sharon says:

    Oh my gosh, love your tasty eats! And the alliteration is so cute!

  25. Vegetation says:

    I’m SO behind in my comments. WAY jealous on your box of goodies! I love rice flake porridge (oats don’t really agree with me for some reason and I love my porridge so rice porridge it is!).

    I love all your grainy dishes. Yum!

    And can’t wait for the yoghurt recipe!

  26. Sagan says:

    You have awesome meals. So many delicious eats!

  27. ChickPea says:

    Are those the Lightlife Chik’n strips by chance? What do you think of them? I’ve always seen them in the store and considered buying them.

    CANNOT wait until your yogurt post!!

  28. Lily Girl says:

    As usual I am totally overwhelmed by how much food you eat. Everything looks delicious, but I am full just looking at it all!

  29. shellyfish says:

    It all looks delish to me! Now, here’s the thing, how do you eat chili with chopsticks?
    I need to know.

  30. Virginia says:

    i love your opening sentence. awesome. you are so witty!

  31. Lauren says:

    Great meals! Can’t wait for the yogurt!!

  32. Jen aka Jewbacca says:

    i’m super excited about the yogurt too. as always, great job representin’ the vegan food groups! i’m totally jealous about the care package. how do you get companies to send you samples?

  33. Burp and Slurp~! says:

    I just love how you eat all these different fantastic grains. I’ve always wanted to vary my grains, but am afraid I may not like them as much as oats! are they as filling and dense as oats? how do you cook your pilafs?
    YAY for yogurt-making! can’t wait~

  34. I ♥ puggies says:

    I think I would like to wear grains as underpants. haha, just kidding.

  35. Fitnessista says:

    i just love how you eat with chopsticks 😀 i should start doing that– i have a tendency to eat my food like it's going to be taken away from me
    curried veggies sound glorious!
    have a great day <3

  36. Melody Polakow says:

    I used to may my own dairy yogurt and soy yogurt.. I am going to start again with homemade soymilk.. It is ridiculously convenient!

  37. talieworld says:

    Ohh yeah that’s right! Haha, thanks I remember that slogan now. :)

  38. Bianca says:

    So do you eat the grains with chopsticks too? Cause that looks like it’d be hard. I’d get them all over my face!

    I just love how well-rounded your meals are. It’s so food pyramid! Love it!

  39. chocolatecoffeekitchen says:

    Yogurt making is coming?!?! Yaaaayyy! Is it possible to make thick, Greek-yogurt like non-dairy yogurt?? That would be cool :)

  40. Ricki says:

    Happy gala apple! You’re too much! (tee hee) :)

  41. Mariposa says:

    all of these meals look soooo yummy and easy to make!
