After I hit ‘publish’ on my lunchtime entry, I cooked up a 100-calorie pack of Kettle Corn popcorn and sliced up a few carrots, and went to go to see Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. It was awesome! I highly recommend it. It was funny and kick-ass. One of my favorite moments was when one of the ex-boyfriends was a vegan and it made him psychic, and it was only after he accidentally drank half-and-half that he was vanquished! It was a take on the trend that seems to come up every once and a while that people seem to think vegans think they’re better than everyone else. It’s true that there are a few vegans that are ‘holier-than-thou’ in their attitude. But most vegans I know are sweet, and just are vegan because of their personal beliefs, and they don’t hold it against anyone that eats meat. Still, it was so funny!
When I got home, I immediately began making my dinner because I was so excited about it. Vegan alfredo sauce sounded too good to be true, but I had found a few recipes that swore by a combination of hummus and nutritional yeast. I mixed that with some lemon juice and added it to peeled zucchini, mung beans, and stir-fried tempeh and broccoli:
AMAZING, but I think next time I’ll just use tofu noodles or regular pasta. I wanted something warm in there along with the broccoli. But the broccoli was great because I undercooked it slightly, so there was a definite crunch. And I will always love stir-fried tempeh.
It’s funny. I don’t really miss meat. I eat it every once and a while, sure. But I don’t crave it. Nor do I crave milk or any dairy products besides ice cream and yogurt.
For dessert, a plum with several pitted cherries, along with a little warmed dollop of chocolate sauce and some Reddi-Whip.
Now, off to rest my sore arms from carrying all that stuff around, and get some rest!
