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

Small Victories

I reeeally wanted pizza tonight, but since I knew way too many slices of it would end up in my gut, I made this bowl of pasta with asparagus, tomatoes, garlic and herbs instead, cleverly employing a few leftover packets of parmesan from our last pizza delivery because we seem to be out of the … Continue reading

Eat Yer Greens (With Lots of Hot Sauce)

Since this whole dietary experimentation kick has been happening, I’ve tried a lot of new stuff. I think almond is my favorite non-dairy milk so far, and I’m actually kind of in love with the soy creamer I’ve been having in my coffee (it says on the carton that it’s from non-genetically-modified soy, but I … Continue reading

Equal Time

Hey, I know I can be a little bit cynical and negative about how people act when they find out someone’s vegging it, but I just wanted to mention a nice experience today where I felt like nobody thought it was any big deal, including me. Brad and I had lunch at a sports bar … Continue reading

Wrestling With Principles: Not My Funniest Post

Instead of being trapped in filthy, dark stacks of stifling, tiny cages with only wires to stand on, with icky byproducts of other industrially-raised animals to eat, … Continue reading

I Ate This

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

Kale Is the New Black

In my quest for healthy foods that rise above the level of “I don’t hate it,” I’ve been trying a lot of new stuff. I’ve noticed that recipes including kale are all over the place lately, but I had never tried the stuff until yesterday. Kale is supposedly a good plant source of calcium, so … Continue reading
