Vegan MoFo: Vegan 100 2009 Edition

There’s another vegan 100 list circulating through the blogosphere (am I using a buzz word?), and since I’m not likely to get around to uploading photos from my trip until this weekend, here’s my list, with things I’ve tried in bold red, and things I’m pretty sure I’ve had, but can’t remember, in italics.

    Umeboshi is so salty, tangy and delicious. I have the paste in my fridge because I bought it to use in a cheeze recipe. Not sure what else to do with it.
