I don’t know if this is a side effect of eating vegan or I’m extremely tired this week, but I’ve been going to bed earlier than expected. Thus, I wasn’t able to post this last night.
For breakfast, I had brown toast with organic strawberry jam. Am I allowed to have toast? Well in one of the recipes, it says to make a sandwich with 2 slices of brown bread or baguette or pita so I assume I can have bread. I’m going to do some research and verify. Hopefully not. When I opened the pot of jam, I was surprised to see it was more brown than red like regular jams. Good to know what natural jam looks like.
For lunch, I had brought some leftovers of Indonesian style tempeh and lots of snacks. I went to check out the menu of the free vegetarian lunch of The Hive at the Loyola campus of Concordia. I was happy to see that they had vegan options and that it looked delicious. It was a sesame stir-fry with rice noodles and sweet red peppers. I added some spicy Thai sauce (I checked the label and no traces of animal products). It was spicy and sweet, I enjoyed it a lot. I also had a dessert, which was a sesame honey cake. It was sweet and light!
The snacks I brought were strawberry flavoured soya drink, a pear, rice and beans chips and rice cakes.
I went to see my friend Cam who’s going to move to Scotland this week. Her family was having dinner and felt bad they could only offer me salad. I reassured them saying I had my lunch and ate it with a side of salad.
When I got home, I went to see what my mother cooked. It was a mix of vegetables she often does and she added either pieces of squash or potato. It didn’t look very appetizing, I’ll have some when I come home tonight. But I am not a fan of this dish. However, I think I’ll have to cook again.
I’m going to make some vegan snacks also, probably some muffins. If I have time of course because I have so much school work.
