Pardon my slacking

Things have been very busy at home lately and I haven’t cooked anything new and/or compelling – but I will!! Next week the whole family is going to start watching what they eat so I am going to try to get creative with lunch as well as dinner! Maybe I’ll even get super awesome and cook breakfast! (but I wouldn’t hold your breath for that one)

To tide you over, this site has tons of great info on vegan options in fast food! Admit it, you love the drive-thru, too!

Vegan Eating Out

For example, did you know that McDonaldland Cookies are vegan? Or that a Taco Bell 7 Layer burrito (without cheese and sour cream) is the yummiest thing ever to eat in your car? Or that Arby’s, Dunkin Donuts and Panda Express don’t give a rat’s ass about your vegan business?


Saturday January 29th was Vegan Pizza Day

We had such a SUPER BUSY WEEKEND that I didn’t cook a damn thing. After a long Saturday of doing projects we celebrated Vegan Pizza Day by going to Amici’s for a pie.

Look at that beauty and tell me I’m missing out on anything!

They substitute Daiya “cheese” at no extra cost! Check out the link for Vegan Pizza Day for pizzerias in your area that proudly serves the non-dairy community! (They will be adding international entries soon!)

Eating Out: Sushi

Well tell me – who would have a problem with that fantabulous feast??

Clockwise from upper left:

  • salad with miso dressing (ask if there is dairy or mayo in it)
  • pickled ginger
  • soy/wasabi
  • edamame (steamed soybeans)
  • vegetable tempura roll
  • inari
  • avocado nigiri
  • cucumber nigiri
  • avocado roll
  • umeboshi roll (pickled plum)

If you order miso soup – which I almost always do! – ask if they use fish sauce or stock. Tokyo Express does, but they make up for it with a HUGE vegetarian sushi menu!

You should be able to get all of these items in any sushi restaurant. Ask them to make you a veggie tempura roll – they will usually happily oblige! 😀
