My Vegan Mondays… and Tuesday

I did Vegan Monday. But I was too sick to blog last night. In fact, I caught a British bug on Saturday and was too sick and tired last night to watch the end of Down by Law, much less chronicle my boring day's worth of food. Or my trip home in Business Class (!). I’ve been fast asleep at 9 pm the past two nights but, when I awoke this morning at 6 am, I finished the movie. Genius, you are, Jim Jarmusch.)

Anyway. So I did Vegan Monday. And I did Vegan Tuesday. More by happenstance, but it’s worth mentioning, no? The point of Vegan Mondays is to remind everyone—including my own gluttonous, greedy ass—that resources are limited and cravings are not sustainable and that modest compromises and sacrifices really aren’t a big deal after all. Grilled salmon and blueberry muffins are as big of indulgences as double cheeseburgers and steak frites. Seriously. So, a simplified version of the past two days worth of eating:

Green tea
Kashi Go Lean Crunch with almond milk and blueberries*

* I need to just say here that cereal, along with sandwiches, is one of my all-time favorite foods. I could eat almost any variety, at any hour, and be sublimely blissed out. But Kashi Go Lean Crunch, especially when left to soak in milk for awhile, is so especially delicious. It tastes so much like Sugar Smacks that I have a hard time believing it’s good for you.



Hummus and crackers, toast and/or carrots

And now I'll leave my ranting to the stars above and shaking earth below and go to sleep early again. Bon nuit, mes amis.

  2. Come to think of it, I had a vegan tuesday too.
    I had chilled gazpacho, a black bean hummas and avocado tartine and mint lemonade. How glorious does that sound?

  3. We were vegan today !
    Shared a banana and dinner, wraps with black beans, avocado and tomato .. I have no appetite.

  4. Hope you feel better.
    Hope the storm avoids NYC.

  5. Hi Amy, I recently started Meatless Mondays too, after reading Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animals. Am struggling to make it vegan though, as dairy is just too damn tough to cut out completely!
