This is my response to this type of question that is asked, answered and heard( in my opinion) far too often.
You’re vegan? That must be soooo hard! how do you do it?? what do you eat??!?
My answer is simple, and delicious:
I love vegetables! I love the taste! the smell! the crunch! the versatility!
….These are probably similar reasons , as to why people love meat and dairy! So what’s with the vegetables people???
Veggies are actually the best, because they can be eaten by everyone! even i f you ” don’t like vegetables” you probably eat and enjoy some!
I would say the real problem is you are boring. Maybe not you specifically , but you as in most of you, lack creativity with your cooking!
Don’t blame vegetables for your laziness and inability to be inventive!
Think about it , you know yourself ( I hope)
you know your tastes ( I hope)
put vegetables, fruits, nuts , beans,snacks, and seasonings that you like together! wow so difficult I know!
as an example I’m going to show you my dinner I ate tonight, actually i’m currently enjoying it….. ( see above photo)
basmati rice with soya beans and a pinch of salt
raw :mushroom slices,carrot and cucumber
brocoli( save the stems! if you grate them with a cheese grater , you can make a slaw out of them!)
Rapini sauteed in garlic and vegan margarine.
Some cooked, some raw, some hot ,some cold. I splashed lemon juice over the whole thing and it is freaking delicious!!!!
I don’t feel stuffed I feel satisfied!
** btw lemon juice is amazing even on raw vegetables!!!
I hope this is a lesson learned for all you sometimes uninformed and sometimes uninspired “meat a tarians”! Vegetables are what bring us together! hah
And with a few eye opening tips from me …. you’ll really learn how to enjoy the vegetables you eat!
Give Peas a chance!
*** specifically roasted garlic peas and wasabi peas ( throw a handfull in your next salad ! ) ***
and stay tuned for my zucchini walnut banana bread!
Sometimes when i’m cooking I like to make up new song lyrics ( related to what I’m doing) set to pop music….
Tonights was pretty good , as embarrassing as it is i’m going to share it with you guys : Beyonces single ladies
” If ya gonna do some steaming put a lid awn it , If ya gonna do some steaming put a lid awn it ..Oh oho oh ohohoh oh oh oh ” and so on
I know , I’m embarassed for me too! ……….Just try and steam anything now without thinking of that … I DARE YOU
Until next time….
Forget what yo moms said and DO PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD!! : P
