Did your family like it? I remember you saying you thought it would win them over.

Re: Going Veggie

It's gotten very popular here, a fried cake of it under a vegetable stack. Which is not that exciting imo but still a huge improvement over some of the stuff they stack things on. Like rosti. Which is just an uber fried hash brown. Or couscous which is just teenie little noodles. Or quinoa which is presented as a brand new superfood with pedigree and no one believes I used to eat it when I was a kid with tofu and miso poured over it and it will always be hippy slop to me. Tasty but stop telling me I'll live forever like the Mayans (they of the calendar) because of it's amazing properties.

Hippies have left me a tad bitter

Yes, My mother likes it, my sisters kept peeking in when it was cooking. They've yet to try it but they want to. Thanks for asking and remembering.

Re: Going Veggie

I am eating VERY smelly cheese.

My cheese connection has sent me, I suspect, the smelliest cheese she can lay her hands on. They are all from France, washed rind cheeses. One of them, I swear to god smells like butt. I shall never mention this and tell her they were all delicate and sublime.

Re: Going Veggie

These pics are getting me hungry.

With the weather warming up, I eat a lot more veggie stuff. Quicker to prep, lighter, and less use of the oven.

Well...plain polenta just tastes like corn! I sauteed two slices in olive oil and topped with fresh sweet basil and cilantro, served with steamed asparagus, fresh sliced tomato, and cucumber pico de gallo.

Re: Going Veggie

I love smelly cheese.

Anyway, five month update:

Blood Pressure: 124/78
Blood Glucose: 108!!!!

I'm thrilled about the blood pressure reading, but this is the first time my blood glucose has been this low in at least 3 years.

VEGETARIANISM: IT WORKS!

Re: Going Veggie

Okay... I don't have much to contribute to this thread, but I do have a question.

My cousin(literally a sister to me since we grew up together) is coming over for a week and she's full fledged vegan. That said... I'm not much of a cook but what kind of stuff should I have in the house for her to eat on? Cause my fridge is full of animal meat and animal based products right now.

Thanks for any help.

Full fledged Vegan? Well, I'm not a fan of PeTA, but they have a section on their site that lists Vegan foods by category, you can see it here: http://www.peta.org/living/vegetaria...lly-vegan.aspx

Vegans don't eat meat, dairy, eggs, or anything that comes from an animal, which includes a number of fats and oils.

Good luck!

Yeah, as much as I want to give her a hard time over it, I'm really trying to be nice about this but I'm just... lost and that list kinda confuses me more. She's kinda the radical one of the family in so many ways, but we haven't seen each other in a few years so the old confrontational banter might wear thin.

Honestly I'm wondering if my best option is to take her to the grocery store and say "get what you want" when she gets here, but even that kinda seems prudish. But thanks for the list, at least that gives me something to go by! But what's up with all these cereals?! Milk is from an animal! Though the fact that energy drinks are Vegan friendly amuses me to no end!

Re: Going Veggie

That is what I would do. Have some fruit available and otherwise tell her to get what she wants. Typical vegan foods such as soymilk and tofu are also things she may not like and you don't want to be stuck with stuff you won't use.

You know... this being my initial idea, it doesn't sound so bad hearing it from you! Can I blame you if it makes her mad?
