I’ve been debating admitting this here, as I know there are some people dedicated to hating me you would lose it over this, but I want to be honest.

I fucked up last night.

Due to a combination of my own bad planning and bad luck, I ended up phoneless, in a really bad part of San Francisco…

I don’t actually know what Reeses are, but hope you are okay now.

Making babaganoush at 1:44am because I have to do it before the eggplants go bad

I woke up my roommate even though I brought the blender into my room to do it. :(

Hope she’s not pissed in the morning.

Also I wish eggplant didn’t look and feel like raw chicken. Vom

A good life-hack (TMI)

If you’re having issues with digestion, try adding a little ginger to your tea. I grate it in with my roommate’s little cheese grater.

Don’t add too much, too much ginger can make you jittery.

Even veg*ns are only human

I’ve been debating admitting this here, as I know there are some people dedicated to hating me would lose it over this, but I want to be honest.

I fucked up last night. 

Due to a combination of my own bad planning and bad luck, I ended up phoneless, in a really bad part of San Francisco with a head splitting headache, all alone. I started to have a panic attack, and to calm myself down, I bought some Reeses.

No shame, I own my mistake. Even veg*n’s f- up sometimes, you just need to get up, brush yourself off, and walk it off.

I just found out how long my home-made almond milk lasts

Six days. :(

I really wanted some with my peanut butter Clif Bar too.

Just found out my FAVORITE (and the cheapest!) place to get fresh produce/grains is non-unionized

While of course the more expensive Andronico’s is.

Anonymous asked: Say you were moving to a new apartment without any of your old food, appliances, cookware, etc.

How would you set up your new kitchen? What essentials would you buy?

Is this on a limited budget? Is this just a hypothetical, or are you in this position.

Because I think that after buying the basics (plates, utensils, pots, pans, etc), one of the greatest kitchen appliance for a veg*n is a blender or some kind of food processor. And a can openner!

As for what foods I’d get, I’d try to stock up some easy to cook grain- rolled oats, quinoa, lentils, coucous, and Israeli couscous (not true couscous, it is more of a pasta and similar to orzo. These can be pretty cheap if bought in bulk, and you can make so many different dishes with them just by adding in different veggies! Don’t forget your proteins- garbanzo and black beans are my main protein sources. 

If you have all these grains and legumes you’ll need to flavor them! I use veggie stock to flavor the grain dishes I make. Soy sauce is a good condiment, and nutritional yeast is a great way to add a “cheesy” flavor to dishes. 

As for veggies, fresher is better. Try to get whatever is cheap and looks good, that’s my plan of attack.

I hope this has helped you. If you have any more questions I’d be happy to answer. :) 

My mom is so awesome and veg*n friendly :)

My mom called me up to talk today. She is incredibly supportive of my food choices, and is a borderline veg*n (I don’t really know if she still eats meat.) herself.

She complained about how little veg and fruit my brother and dad eat, and then told me to only buy the natural soy, not the “stuff with all that artificial junk in it”.

Oh Mom, such a mom. :)

Easy Vegan Breakfast - Oatmeal with Dates and Almond milk

Every morning I have to have my oatmeal!

This is pretty basic- just take a half cup rolled oats, add one cup water, chop up three dates and toss them in. Throw it in the microwave for two minutes.

Add some of the almond milk* (I put in 1/4 of a cup) I shared a recipe for a couple days ago, and you’re all set. Dates are much healthier than refined sugars, and very sweet.
