A Day in the Life: Vegan MoFo

It's Vegan MoFo! What is Vegan MoFo (other than a funny name) you ask? Basically its a vegan blogging celebration where many bloggers attempt to write as much as they can about vegan food. Excited? You bet!

In honor Vegan MoFo, I'm completing this quick survey from Vegan MoFo-er, I Eat Trees. Pass it on and spread the veggie love!

What is one food you thought you’d miss when you went vegan, but don’t?


What is a food or dish you wouldn’t touch as a child, but enjoy now?

Spicy foods or olives (now I'm in LOVE with both)

What vegan dish or food you feel like you “should” like, but don’t?

Mushrooms (most at least)...

What beverage do you consume the most of on any given day?

Water, but I tend to go for sparking water whenever possible (=love!)

What dish are you “famous” for making or bringing to gatherings?

Probably Mediterranean food of some sort (always popular for non-vegans), or various chocolate cakes

Do you have any self-imposed food rules (like no food touching on the plate or no nuts in sweets)?

No rules, just fun, everything's game

What’s one food or dish you tend to eat too much of when you have it in your home?

Avocados, they're always gone in a second, on toast or as guac

What ingredient or food do you prefer to make yourself despite it being widely available prepackaged?

Hummus, or really any Mediterranean food: baba ganoush, tabbouleh, cairo salad, falafel, even pita!

Also, all dips: salsa, guac, bean dip.... curry paste

What ingredient or food is worth spending the extra money to get “the good stuff”?

Balsamic vinegar (esp. white!), olive oil, truffle oil, dark chocolate, coconut oil, wine, coffee & espresso

Are you much of a snacker? What are your favorite snacks?

Yes, when I suffer through late nights of work & school unfortunately: kale chips, seaweed (Trader Joes!), strawberries, veggies & hummus, chips & salsa/guac... and Antonio's home-made french fries on rare occasion (shhh)

What are your favorite vegan pizza toppings?

Sundried tomatoes spread, grilled onions & red & green peppers, olives, spinach... or pesto

What is your favorite vegetable? Fruit?

Onion & Coconut

What is the best salad dressing?

This creamy (spicy) chipotle lime dressing Toni & I make from vegan mayo, amazing on homemade taco salad

What is your favorite thing to put on toasted bread?

Avocado (w/ salt, pepper, red pepper flakes) or homemade jam w/ a little Earth Balance ooor peanut butter & banana... endless possibilities :)

What kind of soup do you most often turn to on a chilly day or when you aren’t feeling your best?

Tomato soup or borscht

What is your favorite cupcake flavor? Frosting flavor?

Ferrero Rocher from Ms. Cupcake (like vegan nutella, but better!)

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

What is your most-loved “weeknight meal”?

Veggie sushi

What is one dish or food you enjoy, but can’t get anyone else in your household to eat?

Sweet Potatoes or Eggplant

How long, in total, do you spend in the kitchen on an average day?

Too long for the amount of time I spend on school work comparatively... its hard not to when your "kitchen" is part of your bedroom...

How many fingers am I holding up? (Just kidding… but the answer is 11. “My name is Inigo Montoya…”)
