Woohooo, I was so excited to unwrap it last night!
This book is awesome, loaded with useful tips for a vegan newbie like me. I can't wait to try something out!!!
I'll definitely try the Scrambled Tofu soon. And the Banana Chocolate Pudding Brownies are also on my things-to-try-asap-list.
And my parents came back from vacation yesterday. Finally I have someone to feed my creations to. Don't get me wrong, my boyfriend does eat some of the things I make. He just can't get over the fact that I'm veganizing everything. So he still prefers to go to Mc Donald's or Burger King and complain about stomach ache later. Guys...
I also had a discussion with him about it again. He can't really make a point as to why he is "against" veganism. He says he's just worried about me getting malnourished. So I told him that by eating beans and Tofu and whatnot I am getting enough protein for example. He hit back that you can't replace animal-protein. I was like "Dude, do all vegetarians you know are sick or somehow seem like they are about to die because they don't eat meat?" Jeez. Seriously, this is going back and forth and he just can't admit that veganism is a possible healthy way to live. SIGH!
I made some more Chili last night, because my mom didn't feel like cooking and they both loved it. Yeah, I'm always proud when someone compliments me on my food =D
Even the boyfriend did. But that's probably because I made us a salad(forgot to take a picture, it was so wonderfully colorful). A simple salad mix with cucumber, red, yellow and orange bell peppers, tomatoes and corn.
Oh, I ordered my first vegan Pizza yesterday. Ha ha, you should have seen the waiter all confused asking "No salami? No cheese? Just broccoli and bell pepper? Is that correct now?" Because I had to tell him several times that I do not want the regular kid's pizza with salami and cheese. It was good, but they could have loaded up more veggies and a bit more tomato sauce.
