Introduction

I’m not very good at introductions. I am starting a blog, which I think at the moment will be mostly about food, in light of my recentish conversion to veganism and desire to experiment more in the kitchen.

Now, I have a picture of my dinner, but I want to preface it, because I feel like it looks like I didn’t eat anything. And I actually eat quite a lot. This morning, I had crew practice at 5:45, and I overslept, so I grabbed a muffin on my way out the door. After practice, we went out to breakfast, where I had homefries, toast with jelly, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, and tea. Then I got home, napped a bit, and decided that I needed more caffeine, so I had some coffee with Silk soy creamer and sugar, and another muffin.



I made the muffins last night. They’re the cocoa raspberry muffins from Vegan Brunch, but I used a frozen mix of raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and cherries. I think cherries make anything better. I also added almond slivers on top.

Anyway, at this point I was pretty stuffed, so I delayed lunch for a while, and around 4, I had some leftover udon noodles with miso, soy sauce, and flax oil. So I didn’t have dinner until around 8, and I still wasn’t really that hungry.



This is zesty orange mojo baked tofu from the Viva Vegan cookbook. I’ve made a few things from this book already, and I’m really excited about it. This tofu had the best texture of any tofu I’ve had, really chewy and almost crusty on the outside, and the flavor in the marinade was pretty good, too. On the side is sauteed spinach, and the drink is some iced pomegranate green tea — pretty color, no?
