Saturday eats with cozy fall comfort food

Satiating plant based meals for autumn

Enjoy this balance of sweet and warm savory plant based meals for cooler weather: soy chorizo toast, chocolate banana shake, fresh blueberry trail mix, and hearty aloo gobi with samosas, pakora, and flat bread for full day of eating. 

Find all the ingredients, including the aloo gobi recipe, and video below. 

Whether it's the time of day, the quantity, or the ingredients I choose, I eat intuitively while being mindful of my food sources. As realistically as possible, I follow a whole food plant based diet with the aim to eat as much variety as I can in each food category and as many colors of produce as I can throughout every day following my hunger cues.
