So I am a vegan. (not the butt of jokes vegan - live and let live people, just dont force your beliefs onto someone else) Though the thing I really don't enjoy is that people seem to think I eat a ton of salads. Umm no. I honestly am not a fan, I really have to be in the mood for one. Granted salad encompasses many different things but for this, I am talking about the rabbit food kind.
So today this is my lunch. Lunch for me is my biggest meal. Small breakfast, BIG lunch and small dinner. I have a hiatal hernia and if i want to sleep tummy needs to be mostly empty (learned the hard way - of course)
Pictured: tofu (its in the paper towel), zuccinni, jalepeno, mushrooms, peas, corn, butternut squash, cauliflower, broth, coconut milk and yes minute rice because I was hungry and getting testy and too lazy to use my instant pot to make rice (besides its forfided with iron and I am also anemic - which has nothing to do with being vegan - sadly my body just doesn't like to hold onto iron never has) Not pictured the tricolored potatoes, onion, shallot and thai red curry paste.
Yummy. I measured out portions on everything except for the coconut milk because well its my weakness when it comes to currys.
This is half people. Half. (I won't mention that it was so so good that I did go back and finish it) Usually I save the other half for tomorrows lunch but technically even though I ate all of it I just ate a serving of everything (except the coconut milk) rough count on calories @900. (darn coconut milk)
Yeah so this vegan is not suffering or depriving herself at all trust me. biggest misconception out there. Well, one of them.
Stay safe people
and wear a freaking mask!
