Earning Treats Through Healthy Dinners

Knowing Christmas was coming, Josh and I have been trying to focus on eating relatively healthy dinners to save up credit for all the sweets.  Though it's a lot of work, all these dinners were delicious, nutritious, and most made enough leftovers for lunch the next day. 
This Italian potatoes and white beans with vegan sausage was probably my favorite of the meals. 
But Mexican pasta was definitely a close second.  I used salsa mixed with cashew cream for a dressing over spring salad mix, avocado, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and fried onions.  Yum!
One night we had one of our regular staples - tofu, broccoli, and edamame with Thai peanut sauce.  While I usually serve this dish with rice or bean threads, and nixed the filler for a healthier meal. 
The last of our healthy meals wasn't perhaps really all that healthy at all, but it certainly was delicious!  I roasted Brussels sprouts, then mixed them with sautéed veggie Italian sausage and cashew cream sauce.  Not perhaps the most gourmet of dishes, but it was warm and comforting - the perfect winter meal!  And Brussels sprouts are healthy, right? :)
