Food Post! Food Post!

See? As previously mentioned, I’m enthusiastic right now. In this case, I’m enthusiastic about the kickass food I have prepared for myself today. Breakfast, meh. Your basic egg sandwich: egg, whole-wheat bread (toasted), and a shmear of cream cheese (in this case Tofutti). So what. But LUNCH! I made this collard green dish I found … Continue reading

Debriefing on Vegging Out, Day 1

I’m not sure how often I’ll be doing food confessions. Probably not all the time because I’d like to keep some readers if I can. However, since this was the big kickoff, here’s the rundown on what I lived on today: This morning I had coffee with TJ’s soy creamer and sugar, then some whole-wheat … Continue reading

Eat Yer Greens (With Lots of Hot Sauce)

Roasted diced sweet potato and red onion topped with a handful of black beans, green onion, jalapeno slices, and Daiya pepper jack “cheese” shreds, plus a dollop of light sour cream, which ruined the vegan-ness but sounded so good I added it anyway. Yummy dinner! I can’t believe it, but this fake cheese just might … Continue reading

When In Doubt, Make Soup

Makin’ another pot of soup, as is evident by the bloodshot, teary eyes I’m sporting above. Stupid onions get me every time, but I still love throwing them in a pot with some garlic and olive oil and then making things up as I go along. Especially on a day like today, which feels more … Continue reading
