Forget Staples....what about favorites?

#1 Postby robert » Thu Jun 02, 2005 1:46 pm

Hey everyone,

Forget about the staples of your diet....when it comes down to it, what are your favorite vegan foods to eat?

I'd admit I like chocolate.

But really, my favorite foods are mostly healthy ones like Potatoes, tofu, beans, apples, oranges, grapes and berries.

I do like some vegan pastries from time to time. Vegan chocolate cake, peanut butter cookies and all that good stuff.

But for a very favorite, I think I'll give it to potatoes.

I think burritos made from Zatarains Red Beans and Rice are probably my favorite thing to eat. Good oranges too. Oh, and soy ice cream.

Fried battered onions, fried battered mushrooms, fried battered squash, goes good with beer :D

Of course these are very rare treats.

there is a health food store by my girls house that makes 6 or 7 different vegan cakes......

my favorite there is the harvest cake with faux cream cheese icing, the chocolate rasberry, and the strawberry cake.

The best by far is the peanut butter cookie from alternative baking co. http://www.planetdistribution.com/alternativebaking/ theyeven have a chocolate chip one, and pumpkin spice and a lemon one. These are good sized cookies too.

Has to be General Tso's Mock Chicken from the local vegan chinese restaurant Panda Veg. I am addicted to that place, had dinner there 5 out of the last 10 nights. :shock:

Two guys came in the other night and one says to the other "hey man, isn't that your rent money?" It was in fact his rent money. :shock: I guess Josie and I aren't the only addicts!

I love berries. Any kind - strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, they're all good. Also, I can't get enough citrus juice - my favorite is grapefruit juice.

If I'm going for junk food though, I'll take Soy Delicious ice cream

We're on the same page Will. I LOVE berries too, all kinds, and this is that time of year! Berry season has started some places and will be in full force here in Oregon next month!

And I'm with ya, I love Soy Delicious as well! I can't choose a favorite flavor but choc/peanut butter I get quite a bit. And mint chocolate chip on a fairly regular basis (that is WHEN I'm actually eating the soy ice-cream. Non-bodybuilding season).

I am going berry picking tomorrow (strawberries & raspberries), first time
since I moved to Oregon. exciting!

My favorite (vegan)foods, in no particular order--

-- organic, in season, nectarines! (such a rare treat, I won't eat them
if they are not organic, the taste is like night and day to me)

-- bosc pear/walnut & fig spinach salads :o

-- ANY salad from Kalga Kafe :P

-- raw pasta(zucchini, squash, cabbage, etc.) with fresh pesto
and avocado! (www.sagescafe.com)

-- creamed macadamia carrot butter (also exclusive to Sage's)

-- fuerte avocados.

-- Lacinato kale, in and with absolutely anything.

-- mangos with lime juice and sea salt!

-- I don't think I could ever have enough berries in my life...

-- carrots and apples, in, on, or with, absolutely anything..


ok...
I'm just going to say I love every single thing I consume on a
daily basis with intense passion, & leave it at that...

:wink:
