I am making breakfast burritos for dinner. If we're not eating them at breakfast, are they still considered "breakfast" burritos?

Tortillas, diced and fried (in very little oil) tofu, hash browns, rice, guacamole, fresh tomato, salsa, onions... yum yum!

It's been just shy of six months since I've intentionally eaten dairy, whether it be eggs, milk, or cheese. I don't miss it much, as there are very good non-dairy ice creams available. I do miss this very unhealthy pasta salad I used to make on a weekly basis - rotini noodles, ranch, Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese, peas, and olives. Extremely tasty and extremely fattening. It's little wonder I was 50 pounds overweight.

I think the next step in our diet reform is to replace the vegan junk food with whole foods. We still eat crackers (long chemical sounding ingredient list so they can't be healthy), a bit of soy, and a few other highly processed convenience foods.

I really wanted to post a picture of my smoothie this morning but my camera batteries were not yet fully charged. Hopefully tomorrow! Raspberries and bananas make the best smoothies.

I love breakfast burritos! You can also season the tofu and mash it so it looks like scrambled eggs and tastes really good too. I have actually switched to organic dairy now (eggs, yogurt, and cheese). We still love organic soy milk the best. Real food. Not processed. Organic and natural is now very important to us.

Thanks for sharing. Hope you have your camera ready soon :)

Sounds *very* good! Much better than our "meat-eater" version ;o)

We are slowly making changes to our diet as well...sometimes it can be a challenge...mostly with the big husband character with a very picky palate!

It sounds like you are making some wonderful changes and I look forward to hearing more.

There are some really good options out there for homemade crackers. Over the past few months, I've really tried to eliminate foods from my diet that consist of ingredients that I cannot pronounce. :-) Good luck!

Shelley, do you have any recommendations? Getting rid of unpronounceable ingredients sounds like a really good idea!
