I read an interesting editorial today from the editor of a British journal on cooking who is vegan. A lot of her thoughts match mine. Check out the link. One difference is that I have not had any push back from friends. Maybe because Tommy and I have worked very hard to not have toxic people in our lives. We have always known a lot of people who shared different opinions and views than us on a lot of subjects and that was not a factor in our relationships.
For breakfast today, I stayed with the smoothie. Today's version used coconut soy yogurt, blueberry juice, apple juice concentrate, almonds, cocoa, frozen blueberries and frozen raspberries. I needed a quick lunch, so a made a burrito from the leftover black rice and tofu scramble from an earlier breakfast. I had a few pieces of crispy kale to crumble on top.
Since Spring is still eluding us, I made a hearty stew for dinner. It was a mix of a lot of veggies and beans - lentils, kidney beans, onions, celery, carrots, portabello mushrooms, kale, tomatoes, garlic, thyme, and turmeric. I piece of olive bread finished off the meal.
