More adventures in vega-tude

Pin It Now!

The whirlwind of the last couple of days has caught me a little off-guard, but vegan week is still going strong. Thus far, my veganized efforts have left me 2 pounds lighter, and 2 inches skinnier through the waist section. Nice.

I have, however, tried one more unfortunately overprocessed product. Soygurt is not recommended. This was yuck. When I opened it, I was greeted with the pallid gray insipidity of man-made gunk. And it didn't taste any better than it looked. Sadly, I now have $3 worth of "yogourt" that I don't think you could pay me to eat. Very disappointing.

On the up side, my seitan leftovers were awesome and I'm looking forward to havin' me some tempeh tonight. Yesterday, I managed to find a semi-vegan sandwich at the college cafeteria. I thought they used to have these amazing vegan pitas, but they were nowhere in sight yesterday. I had to satisfy myself with a veggie panini (getting them to remove the cheese). I'm not certain if the bread was milk-ingredient free, but at least I made a solid effort.

Today, I visited the Host India buffet (very yummy!) and they had many options that I thouroughly enjoyed - curried eggplant, veggies, potatoes, spinach, tofu and veggie pakoras. A veritable cornucopia compared to the mediocre food court offerings.

Other cultures certainly have a lot to teach us about avoiding animal products. I had a great meal and didn't miss the meat whatsoever (I mean, it looked good, but I bet I had a much healthier meal because of this choice).

I've been busy planning the finale of Vegan Week - so I hope you'll all tune in on Sunday to check out my creations. I think it's going to be a good one.....complete with homemade foccaccia, bruléed hazelnut chocolate torte and more....

I'm not sure what kind of soy yogurt you tried, but I HIGHLY recommend the Silk brand. Most of the others are pretty gross, too sweet, and very non-yogurt like. Silk has a much better texture, and although still pretty sweet, is a LOT better than any other brand I've tried. Wildwood I found tolerable. Nancy's I couldn't even swallow . . . haha. Give Silk a shot!
