Hey friends! How are you? It’s been a LOOOONG time since I posted “what Marlowe eats” right?! Gosh, I didn’t realize how long it’s been until I started drafting this post today. You’ll notice a mix of photos here– some super dark winter-y Massachusetts photos and some brighter, Florida pictures too 🙂 I’ve collected the photos for while 😉 Anyway, here are the vegan meals Miss Marlowe has been eating here, there, and everywhere!

above: banana ice-cream snacks and a tofu scramble breakfast plate in Boston. She didn’t like the fake breakfast sausage, but liked everything else. I don’t blame her, we’re not fake meat fans.
dosa. she was sad when we didn’t go to india… because we had planned to visit the place where dosas were created and had planned to eat dosas everyday. next time.
veggie fried rice (in cookbook) , fried plantains, and avocado.

The cutest pad Thai eater I’ve ever seen. Marlowe and I LOVE black rice noodles. And I’m so happy she loves them– because they’re def a step up from regular rice noodles 😉

Portuguese bean stew! This was the first time my friend Claudia cooked for us and it was gooooooood! I want her to share the recipe with me (and maybe you guys too?!)
rice, cooked kale ( recipe in cookbook) and brown lentils.
The next day we took the leftover lentils and made a lentil tomato stew sauce thing.
Noodle miso soup lover. Still so fast and easy.
Veggie sushi, chips, and guac. Meal of champions if you ask me.
Oatmeal with blubs and raisins. Smoothie bowls are better.
And finally: one of my favorite pasta dishes lately (shared the recipe last month: creamy baked pasta) and caesar salad. We’ve loved the salad— we put a recipe together for it, but I need to photograph it for you guys 🙂  This week I think!

Alright friends! I’m off to bed! W’ere heading to Epcot in the morning! Which means I’m going to wake up extra early to make us food for the park 😉 Cheers! Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. I never get sick of your What Marlowe Eats posts! She’s so cute! Since we’ve turned more and more plant based as a family I’m just astounded at the way my kids happily munch on all kinds of veges, beg for smoothie bowls several times a day and get super excited about a big bowl of dahl. Kids are so adaptable and awesome

  2. Hi Drea, I love your What we eat posts… but I have a question about rice products. We have recently transitioned away from allowing the children to eat rice pasta/noodles etc due to the arsenic content, and to limit the number of servings of rice. I watched a number of videos on nutritionfacts.org and Dr. Gregor recommended not giving rice pasta etc to children. Have you researched this at all?

      Hi love!

      So what I think: I think you’re totally right to be weary of rice products. I can’t say I’m totally in love with the idea of eating them. That being said, I freaking LOVE noodles– like, all time favorite meals are any meals that involve noodles. So I dont know, it’s a give and a take. You really cant trust any food unless you’re growing it yourself at this point, there is so many things wrong with our current food system. So we don’t completely avoid it (obviously), but I do prefer the days that we avoid rice (and grains) in general lately.

      • You are right, it is soooo hard! We try to make the best decisions for our children but it seems that agribusiness, pharmacare and governments are trying to get us no matter which way we turn!

        Oooh, that sounds very ‘conspiracy theory’, I promise I am normal and not a COMPLETE nut 😉

  3. Just wanted to say that I love that you used the word “blubs”. Definitely what my little one and I call them. 🙂

      haha, awesome! I will say it did feel weird to type though 😉

      • Yes, definitely, haha! Never used the word blubs before, but we always eat strawbs 😉
