As I write this, it’s almost 2pm on the final day of Vegan MoFo. Only 10 hours to go (in Australia, at least)! I planned to go out with a bang, but I’ve been busy and haven’t had a chance to cook anything interesting for the last few days, and couldn’t think what to write about today—but an unplanned brunch has saved me.
I stop for a brief blogging breather and next thing I know 4 days have gone by since my last post! I can’t let Vegan MoFo beat me, after all it’s almost over (just like the AFL footy season). I have a folder of half written posts, so rather than finish each one, I’m going to mash them all together into one post about what I’ve eaten lately.
After drooling over all the fantastic MoFo blog posts, I thought I’d better lift my game and start making some healthier dinners. I trawled through a whole lot of fantastic vegan blogs and found some fantastic meals to try. Here are the first two…
After my off-putting lentil experience the other day, we’ve now gone 3 days without legumes. That’s probably the longest we’ve been without them in years! I wasn’t really sure what to make without them. It took a little hunting, but I found some delicious legume-free comfort food. I think the memory of the smell is fading now though. It’s time to get back to beans and lentils tomorrow.
How do they smell? Terrible!*
Today I thought I’d take the opportunity to have another go at the perfect lentil burger. Sadly, things didn’t quite go as planned.
When I first stopped eating meat, in the early 90s, the range of ‘vegie’ foods in my supermarket was VERY limited. I had to make a special trip to a ‘health food’ shop to get some of the foods we ate. Over the years, the range has increased, but it’s great to see that over the last few months, there has been a HUGE expansion of vegie choices in my regular supermarket. It’s a good sign!
