Ice Cream…. did I mention that this is vegan… vegan ice cream :D
Purely Decadent - Peanut Butter Zig Zag
The local grocery store I bought this from only has a small selection of vegan ice cream but that’s okay because I could live on this if I had to.
all three of us got to go to Good Eatz Cafe… FINALLY!
It’s usually just me (Tanya) and Aslynn who go together.
Anyways, I got the Vegan Shepard’s Pie. It was alright but there was like something in it that was like sour or something, I ate it all because it was still pretty delicious. It came with a salad and I had vegan 1000 island dressing, which is never disappointing :)
Serenah got the Vegan Grilled Ruben with tofu. I had a bite and I think I prefer it made with tempeh. It was extremely delicious regardless.
Aslynn ordered a Cajun style Fish Burrito (she’s not vegan anymore btw, her vegan-ism lasted like 4 days) She said it was REEEAAALLLLYYY good (direct quote)
we all had a Chai Cupcakes and they were divine!!! we didn’t get a pic because we were too excited.
On that note, I hope everyone has a good night!
more vegan-ness will be posted tomorrow :D
smashed black beans, a little bit of taco seasoning (I use Ortega brand, it’s vegan), red onion, garlic, green pepper, and of course, Follow Your Heart Cheddar Cheese :D
So Delicious Dairy-Free Ice-Cream Mini Sandwiches
my mom and I ate them all in one day…

Vegan Cheese Pizza
I used a pre-made rice pizza crust, homemade pizza sauce, Daiya Vegan Mozzarella Cheese, and Italian seasoning.
the crust was thin, the sauce was light, and there was so much cheese.
be jealous :)
Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
let me just start by saying how awesome these things were. (I say ‘were’ because I ate them all)

Vegan Orange “Chicken” with Broccoli and White Rice
I used Gardein Mandarin Orange Crispy Chik’n. I got mine at Whole Foods Market
I ate vegan orange chicken twice before at restaurants, the Gardein version wasn’t as good but I it did come from the freezer so I wan’t actually expecting restaurant quality.
It was very delicious regardless :)
next time, i’d probably add in some sliced onions, snow peas, and baby corn for more flavors
Curried Chickpea CousCous
it’s like a healthy version of the classic “rice & beans”… well maybe it’s not like it but it is delicious

- 1 C couscous
- 1 3/4 C water
- curry powder
- boil water
- add all ingredients

Tomato Eggplant Bake
- 1 small eggplant, peeled and cut into small cubes
- 1 onion diced
- 1 green pepper diced
- a can of stewed tomatoes
what you do: Put everything in an oiled baking dish. Top with vegan cheeseor nutritional yeast if you want. Then bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes.
p.s. I had it on broil for the last 2 minutes of it cooking. I tried out this vegan cheese my mom bought me, I was trying to get it to melt but…. it didn’t work :(
This is and extremely delicious meal and to be honest, I don’t want my sister and her husband to get back from work because I don’t want to share it with them… oh well, I get to eat both of my nephew’s servings because they hate veggies, which is a good thing in this case :D
