get all sad and stuff!

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!
