E2 - 28 Day Challenge - Day 2

I am going to try and capture these meals on camera - although it will only be with my cameraphone... Hopefully it will give a better idea of what we're eating here!

We are both really enjoying these past couple of days and are ready to keep going for the entire challenge!

Day 2

1912 cals (313g carb, 57g fat, 57g protein, 61g fiber)
(61g FIBER??!! crazy stuff)

Banana & Toast
This morning's breakfast was two pieces of toast, spread with 1 TBSP sunflower butter, and topped with a sliced banana - simple and yummy!

E2 Basics Wrap with Gnocchi

This was a very easy wrap to make - I had saved us each 1 cup of gnocchi to put on our wraps, but that ended up being WAAYY too much - we used 1/2 cup gnocchi.

(insert snack here!)
for snacks today we had an orange and 1/4 cup shredded wheat - just something to tide us over til dinner

Dinner Plate: E2 Black Beans & Rice Extravaganza
This was a HIT for everyone in the family! The sauce for the beans was really yummy mixed into the rice, and the veggie mix was awesome - the avocado gave it just enough moistness to tie all the veggies together! We will definitely be having this meal for years to come!

E2 Lime Mousse Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Blackberries and Cashew Cream Topping
(inspired by
OK the actual recipe for the mousse came from SparkRecipes - but I first heard of it on and also got the Cashew Cream from her site as well.
This turned out really well! My 6yo did not like it, but he doesn't really like chocolate anyways. My 14yo son ate his, plus his brother's! I wouldn't tell him what it was made from, but when he was almost done I finally told him it was avocados and he was SO surprised :)
Paul liked it, and I thought it was OK - I may make this again, but it's not a go-to recipe for me...


  1. Hi Rach,
    So, can I substitute Bragg's Amino Acid with something else? Also, did you use tamari or salsa to top it off?

  2. Thanks! You can use soy sauce instead of the Bragg's -

    We didn't use tamari or salsa to top it off - it had enough moisture with the bean sauce and the avocados that it didn't really need it. But it would probably be good with either!
