What does a vegan eat? November 10th edition.

Just fun to list what I had to eat now and again, and yesterday and today are great days to brag. Anyone who says a vegan's diet is boring is misinformed...note that I am also lucky enough to work at a vegetarian cafe with brilliant food available at my fingertips. Also note that i've been trying REALLY HARD...(for the past 2 days?) to up my protien intake as I've found out i should be eating 65-80 grams a day.

Yesterday:

Breakfast:
About 4 ounces of vegan scramble made with Smart Deli veggie ham, tofutti american 'cheeze' slices, tomato, firm tofu. 2 slices of white fortified bread with earth balance.

Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate made with Soy milk

Lunch:
2 Large pieces of veggie pot pie made with vegan puff pastry, carrots, celery, onion, green beans, broccoli.

Pomegranate and Pear Nantucket Nectars.

Dinner:

Creamy vegetable korma made with green beans, carrot, onion, garlic, ginger, chilis, and cauliflour with cashew cream and coconut milk. Served with cumin rice.

A million ounces of Newman's own Virgin Pomegranate Lemonade

Movie snacks:

Homemade popcorn with salt, black pepper, earth balance, and nutritional yeast
Vegan hazelnut cream wafer cookies

Today:

Breakfast:
Carrot apple and ginger juice with ginseng and vitamin C
Steel Cut oats with half a banana 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts and a drizzle of honey (yes I'm a honey vegan).
8 ounces of fortified soy milk

Lunch:

A cup of Indonesian squash soup made with coconut milk and garnished with spinach
Quinoa salad with currents, red onion, baked eggplant, mint, pine nuts, parsley, olive oil and a couple tablespoons of hummus on top.
(Both of these available at my workplace)
A million more ounces of Pomegranate lemonade
A few sips of chamomile tea

Dinner:
So far? 3 vegan compost cookies. On my way to warming up creamy vegetable korma with cumin-basmati rice!
