Ultimate Thanksgiving Sandwich + Cookbook + Giveaway!!

14 Oct

As some of you may have seen (via my Facebook Page or Twitter account) I have published my first cookbook!! :D

I have so many people to thank for helping me get this cookbook to where it needs to be <3 too many to list… but you can see many of their names in the cookbook!  Recipe testers, family, friends… the list is too long!

Well anyways, it has been taking up so much of my time and I have been heavily neglecting my blog and my Meat Free Athlete blogging duties!  So look out for a new post tonight or tomorrow on MFA!


Ultimate Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

Serving size varies depending on amount of leftovers (:

For one sandwich:

1 slice Holiday Lentil Loaf

3 tablespoons Golden Gravy

2 tablespoons Mashed Cauliflower

1 tablespoon cranberry sauce

2 teaspoons Vegenaise

2 slices whole grain bread


Reheat the lentil loaf in a few teaspoons of olive oil in a nonstick sauté pan.  Meanwhile, lightly toast the bread.

Spread 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce on one slice of bread and 2 teaspoons Vegenaise on the other slice.  When the holiday lentil loaf is heated through, place it on one slice of bread then, using the same hot sauté pan, reheat the mashed cauliflower.  Spread the heated cauliflower over the holiday lentil loaf and, again using the same hot sauté pan, heat the gravy.  Pour the gravy over the cauliflower then top with the remaining bread.  Slice down the middle, grab a napkin, and enjoy your holiday feast again (:


All the recipes for this sandwich are included in my holiday cookbook “my Kind Holiday

    I will use these to help kick start my weight loss, especially since I’m in a wedding in May! I also want to make sure I am at my healthiest for when I start to have children :)

    Wow! Is it bad I want to make a Thanksgiving dinner just so I can give this sandwich I go? (damn us English not celebrating Thanksgiving). But seriously, it looks very yummy and if not before I will be able to try something with Christmas leftovers. Thanks for a great post :)x
    I have a few vegan posts, any more coming soon, on my blog so if you have a free minute to take a look that’d be awesome.

    I’m still searching for a protein powder I like. The one I loved was whey based, so that went out the window. Perhaps this one will be to my liking??

    I would enjoy trying RAW Fit to keep my weight in check while also adding a hefty dose of protein to my diet. This would make a filling breakfast adding it to cereal or oatmeal. Thanks!

    Love the leftover sandwich idea! Also, I’d love to replace my morning coffee with a protein smoothie- I haven’t found a protein powder I like yet, but this brand looks awesome!

    I would LOVE to give RAW Fit a try as I have a few stubborn pounds to trim off and I’m always on the look out for nutritious weight-conscious protein supplements! I would definitely whip up some yummy fruit smoothies with almond milk, peaches, blueberries and strawberries too for healthy fruit. Thank you!
