What's everyone's favorite comfort food.... the yummy meal you don't allow yourself unless the week has been particularly stressful...

 

Mine is a sliced banana and raw almond butter sandwich. Actually, I always have two!!

 

See, thing about that is ......

 

IT'S STILL HEALTHY!!!

 

That's one of the great things about a Vegan Diet.

Healthy perhaps, but with the amount of almond butter I use...... I'd still say it's 'comforty'!!

 

Actually, there is a Vegan restaurant around the corner from me that serves a pancake and 'fried chicken' plate..... I hardly ever have it (HELLO thunder thighs! ), but perhaps that's my favorite bad-for-me meal.

Vanilla is my Favorite too. Which version? I used to drink Regular Vanilla( Silk Vanilla ). But ever since I tried Very Vanilla( Also from Silk ) I find the taste of regular Vanilla to be mediocre in comparison. So much so that I can't stand to drink anything but Very Vanilla( Not even chocolate beats it ).

I usually have breakfast with an oatmeal: oats, soymilk, tahini, flaxseed and a sliced banana. I only eat one in the morning but when I'm comfort eating I can go through 4 in one day. Clif Bars...omg! Dried cherries, and cashews

 

EDIT: The other day I had my first vegan ice crean: Mint fudge So Good + ginger cookies. yummmmmm. Shame it was cold here and I ended up shivering. I just ate a hot oatmeal afterwards...

Oooohh, the banana and raw nut butter sandwich actually sounds really good!

 

Guess some of my main comfort foods would be knishes, the veggie pizza slice down the block, a pint of Buddhist Delight Chinese Food, or a few rolls of good veggie sushi, made crunchy with spicy sauce.

 

(Runners up would include whole wheat spaghetti, vegan ice cream, hot oat bran cereal, mac and chreeze, dried dates, bananas rolled in raw carob powder, a Sweet n Sara Mallomar, or caramel popcorn. Vegan gummy bears would be nice, too!)

I don't make sandwiches because I hate bread.

How I envy you, veganmomma! I dream about bread.

I don't like bread in any form except whole wheat pita.

 

I love whole wheat pita bread, but I stay away from it because if I buy a bag I'll eat the entire bag at once. There's a grocery store in my hood that sells bags of HUGE loaves that are bigger than a plate. That's way too many carbs so I don't buy any.

^ What About Tortillas? That's a form of Bread. A burrito is like a Mexican sandwich.
Every Mexican restaurant in my neck of the woods make burritos with white flour tortillas which I won't eat.

 

Bread dominated meals aren't real meals which is why I don't eat at Ethiopian restaurants. If half a meal or sandwich is made up of any form of bread I won't waste my money or time eating it. I don't like hoagie rolls, sliced bread, unsliced loaves of bread, or Enjeri. Did I cover every form of bread Dr. Pink?

As far as I can tell. Though I personally consider anything made with flour to be bread. Like Doughnuts.

 

Though I agree. Every Mexican restaurant in my neck of the woods too uses white flour. That is why I makie my own tortillas out of Organic Whole Wheat Flour and Water. As for bread( Sliced bread ). It's too much work to make. So I don't make it.

 

I also make my own Pizza dough from scratch. Only with Whole Wheat Organic too( King Arthur is my favorite ).

 

I want to switch over to Hemp Flour eventually because I hear it's better.

I think I just figured out why I couldn't last in HI. I'd miss enjeri too much. I love good ethiopian. Especially good + cheap + plentiful ethiopian.

 

Meanwhile... After a lil rocky patch over the last week or two I picked up some luna and larry's coconut bliss dark chocolate ice cream. And some fresh strawberries. Looking forward to that. : )

I would have to say that ,besides any type of cupcake ::Yum:: , my favorites would have to be either an upatham, dosai or veg. pakora. if that is not around, pasta with alfreda sauce from vegan with a vengence (it is awesome!) All of these things are horrible for you!

 

I do think it's funny that what we call horrible for us would be someone elses "health" food.

 

now i'm hungry!...
