Vegan Eats Lately

Are you guys ready for a mega food dump?  I have been hoarding food photos since before Hawaii, so I wanted to share some eats and life lately.

We kept our meals super simple before the honeymoon.  That rice and chickpea dish was one of my favorites.  This is me super excited about the trip!

When I'm in need of a fresh lunch salad, I look no further than Izzy's.  I love to modify their Greek salad by throwing black beans all over it.

I started couch to 5k before it go so hot I couldn't walk outside.  I've been walking on the treadmill most mornings.  My goal is to work up to 3 miles a day.

We got fresh pinto beans in our CSA box, so I cooked them all day in garlic and greens in the crock pot.  Then, I threw them on fresh salads.  I've been really into hemp seeds lately as well.

Humidity hair = curly frizzy mess.

Salad toppings are serious business.  If you cut veggies and put them in the fridge, all you need to do is put down your leaf base and top with your cut vegetables (and maybe a bean or seed).

This simple dinner was delicious!  Rice + steamed veg + edemame + hot sauce = DINNER

Our friends, Sheridan and Drew, made us this INCREDIBLE dinner before we left for Hawaii.  Can you believe I'd never had chickpea cutlets before?  They were sooooo good.  Josh and I are now obsessed with caulipots (cauliflower and potatoes).  They brought this yummy hot sauce back from Vegan Vida Con, and I happily found it at Whole Foods the other day.

We even had Daiya strawberry cheesecake and vegan whipped cream.  It was SO tasty.  I need to get one for our freezer.

I had this incredible fusion fried tofu from Sky Modern Japanese.  This place is really tasty.

To me, there's not a lot of things that are better than a ripe, Arkansas tomato, drizzled with olive oil and a crack of salt.  It's hard to even look at a tomato during the rest of the year, because they pale in comparison to these beauties.

I had to man our booth at a convention last week, which put me downtown during lunch time.  I got excited, because that meant I could eat at The Veg LLC.

This is the best sandwich I've had all summer.  The bread was crispy and salty, and the chickpea salad was full of apples and raisins.  It was incredibly yummy.

Well, there you have it!  I know it's a lot of random eats.  I think the theme for the summer has been fresh veggies!

What have you been eating lately?  What's your favorite summer sandwich?  Leave me a comment!


  1. In the summer I love tomato, Just Mayo, a little salt and two slices of amazing bread. That sandwich does look great, and the chickpea salad sounds AMAZING!

  2. Do you wish a watch but with affordable style? As abounding humans already know, an affected alarm can accommodate the ultimate emphasis to an accouterments for appropriate occasions alignment from weddings, to louis vuitton replica ceremonies, to ancestors gatherings and even business meetings. As complements to a chic appearance they activity an air of composure and grace. But the a lot of accepted obstacle to accepting a notable watch is the amount tag that accompanies a lot of replica watches top of the band accurate brands. Unfortunately, the a lot of accepted watches in the apple aren?t so because of their affordability. Some of the top brands? best affairs watches can amount anywhere from 2 to 7 thousand dollars and sometimes far beyond. Since this is far too big-ticket for the boilerplate watch client acquisitive to supplement their attending with some top chic appearance that won?t breach the bank, abounding humans accept absolutely acquiescently angry to top superior Panerai replica watches Superior central and out. Contrary to accepted belief, abounding of today's accessible top superior replicas do a astounding job of actualization just like the top of the band brands they are imitating. Indistinguishable to a lot of breitling replica people, they achieve the aforementioned akin of breeding and adroitness after acceptable a banking burden. They are bogus to top standards by craftsmen who specialize in the assembly of top superior but affordable IWC replica watches, and are, in abounding cases, just as chronologically absolute and physically abiding as the acutely big-ticket accurate cast name watches. Considered from the bend of appearance and aesthetics, extenuative money by affairs a replica watch makes faculty because a lot of humans will never be able to rolex replica acquaint the aberration amid a replica and the absolute thing. Considered from the bend of quality, extenuative money affairs a Cartier replica watch makes faculty because abounding replicas are just as able and accurate as the absolute thing.
