Unloaded “Baked” Potato

Round two, Day 4? I don’t even know, tbh. We’re in that weird space where we feel kind of blah. This is to be expected, as the Whole30 Timeline does predict rather accurately. The first time we did Whole30 was in January, so when I had a sniffly nose and congested head, I just chalked […]

Jackfruit & Tofu Tikka Masala

We’re doing our second round of Vegetarian Whole30, and we’re super excited about it. Justin made a beautiful Jackfruit & Tofu Tikka Masala.  He used this recipe, except he didn’t really follow it.  Instead of cream, he used cashew milk, and he omitted the butter and honey, and added cubed potatoes. When we cook up […]

My favorite.

I woke up this morning in my own bed, half slanted to the right and thinking about how we need to fix that bed leg that we broke before we left for California. I lifted myself out of bed to find myself in front of the bathroom mirror; my hair reflects relative humidity and pillow-drying, […]

Zero Waste Cupcakes

Anybody who really knows me, knows how much I dislike wasting things, so when I have opportunity to use up the last bits of stuff into new things, I’m all over it. For breakfast today, we had Justin’s famous oatmeal and black coffee.  Last night, though, we had an after-dinner coffee, so when Justin went […]

Vegetable Sandwich & Blubharb Tarts

I’m falling way behind, folks, but I’m in for the month!  I’m not going to blog the repeats that we eat because we tend to eat the same things over and over; however, this sandwich – while it is a relative staple on our lunch menu – was extraordinary and worth blogging about.  Justin picks up these great rolls […]

Lazy Sundays

So last night we made our breakfast beans, and we pretty much just snacked on them all day until we both were so full of beans that we had to actually remove them from our sight (put them away) so we wouldn’t continue.  It was a very chill day; we were entirely domestic: cleaning the […]

Leftovers all day.

We don’t have anything terribly new to report: we had leftovers all day. For breakfast we had our stand-by tofu, beans & potato burrito; for lunch we had the last of the tacos; for dinner I had the last of the spaghetti sauce (I went to a pasta-dinner fundraiser for a friend’s niece, and was […]

French Leek Friday

We started out the day with our faithful oatmeal (ermagherd, I love Justin’s oatmeal) and black coffee.  I headed out to teach the PE class I’m covering until June (hooping and yoga, whaaaaat?), came home to take care of some work, then we set out for falafel times.  Delicious falafel times. The coolest thing about […]

See how I told you we repeat? For lunch we both had our classic lunch salad and leftover spaghetti from last night.  But tonight: […]

Day 4: The Veganing

Pancakes! Yield appx 8 three-inch pancakes. We like pancakes, and we definitely like pancakes made from scratch. I am not at all a pancake-from-a-box eater because a) they’re gross,  b) pre-made mixes are overpriced and c) I don’t have as much control over the ingredients. Luckily, pancakes are one of those things that are very […]

Veganing Out of Doors, Day 3

Previously on The Veganing…. No big surprise: we had the same breakfast today as we did the day before yesterday, except instead of buckwheat, we used potatoes. This version is our standard breakfast burrito, and this raised bar is pretty tough to beat (though the buckwheat comes close). As our series progresses, I think you’ll […]

May project: The Veganing

Introduction As our closest friends and family know already, Justin & I made the transition to full-on veganism at the first of the year. Over the past four months, we’ve tried all kinds of different products, recipes, and vegetables; some were excellent, but many either fell flat, or just weren’t very good. I think we both […]
