Vegan MoFo: Day 1 – The Day of the Greens
Happy Vegan Mofo/Vegan Day! I started out today, meaning to take photos of everything I ate, but by the time I got to a very late lunch, I was too hungry to stop shoveling food in my mouth long enough to take a shot with my phone’s camera.
Despite someone seriously insisting that too many vegetables would make me sick, I ate greens with pretty much every meal today.
There was a green smoothie with kale, banana, mango, pineapple, and ginger—my current favorite. For a snack, I had kale chips I made in the dehydrator – my new favorite toy.
Finally, there was a big pile of chard for dinner. These were seasoned with garlic, ginger, and chili oil. I also made chickpea cutlets from Veganomicon, substituting lime, coconut oil, curry powder, garam masala, cumin, ginger, turmeric, and a pinch of cayenne. I also tossed some sweet potatoes in garlic and curry powder before roasting them.
I’m pretty sure no one has ever died from eating too many vegetables, but I’m eating a little chocolate tonight, just to be safe.
