I love to eat. Period. Point. Blank.
Listen people, veganism is not a practice in scarcity. Food options aboundeth, however, successful veganism takes cooking, experimenting, lots of grocery shopping, and some tweaks to the psyche. By psyche tweaks, I mean subtle (not drastic) changes to how you approach the journey. Instead of thinking: I’m limited in what I can eat. I choose to think: there’s so much I can try.
For instance, right now, it’s early Saturday morning, and I’m super hungry. And I’ve sat in this bed and thought myself into a cooking frenzy. I can probably stand to go to the grocery store and re-up on food, but that’s definitely not happening at this moment cause I just don’t feel like going to the store.
Before I went to bed, I had my mind set on scrambled tofu with onion. So that’s a definite. Last night, my mom cooked some cabbage and squash, and it was bomb. I’ve got some cabbage in the fridge, so I’ll pan fry that. I also have some canned sweet peas. I haven’t eaten those in while, so I’ll quickly boil them with lots of pepper. Earlier this week, I bought lots of cucumber for juicing. I may dice a couple of them, throw in some fresh diced tomatoes, chopped green and black olives, capers, fresh parsley, and a homemade vinaigrette.
These are all quick and easy, and I’ll have options to choose from all day. I’ll see where the spirit takes me when I go in the kitchen. It may lead me to all of em, or just maybe a couple, but two things I know for sure: I’m finna cook and I’m finna eat. Cause: food aboundeth.
Sometimes I take pics of my food, but they’re not really single blog post worthy. So here’s a quick view of some of what I’ve eaten over the past few weeks. Veganism can be glorious.
