Hey there, internet friends! It’s time for another edition of recent vegan eats: quarantine edition! Although, at this point, maybe I should just stop titling quarantine posts as such since it seems as if (at least here in the US) those of us who take COVID-19 seriously will be in quarantine for a long time.
How have you been? Enjoying the sun? Tired of quarantining? Enjoying quarantining? Let me know down in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
I’m currently taking some time off of social media (namely, Facebook and Instagram) because I just needed a break. Social media was starting to regularly impact my mood so I logged off those for a bit!
Honestly, I’d hoped to use the extra time to blog more and to work on a personal project I have going…but the truth is, I literally have just been relaxing with the extra free time. I really have struggled with ‘turning off’ working all the time, and quarantine has been a good time for me to relax and just sit in bed and watch stuff snuggled up with my pup.
What have I been watching? Well, I watched Athlete A on Netflix and it was excellent and important. There’s an NPR podcast called ‘Believed’ on the same situation that’s even better.
I’ve also been re-watching Gossip Girl for reasons I can’t explain. Holy cow do I feel old thinking back to how I used to watch it in high school. At the time, the characters were older than me, living in the city I hoped to move to. Now, 13 years later, I’m older than the character and lived in the city for nearly 9 years. Makes me nostalgic as heck!
Oh, and in case you’re curious, my experience in the city was a lot more like Girls than GG or SITC. Anyways….onto the eats! If you’re new around here, in my ‘recent eats’ series I share some of the things I have eaten and happened to have photographed in the past several weeks.
As with all posts in this series, this entry is not meant to depict an ideal or healthful diet. In fact, it’s worth noting that this isn’t everything I’ve eaten lately; it’s simply what I’ve happened to photograph with my phone.
I simply do these posts to provide entertainment and perhaps some new meal and snack inspirations for fellow vegans and/or my part-time or veg-curious friends. Enjoy!
I have been getting a small CSA share this summer and it’s been great! I make a lot of my meals using CSA ingredients. This particular dinner was CSA lettuces, fennel, and sliced kohlrabi, paired with some vinegar beans, avocado, and Angelic Bakehouse roll, and some unpictured boiled potatoes. Incredible.
One of my favorites. And yes, I ate a whole brick of tofu as pudding for dessert. The recipe is here; I highly recommend it if you’re craving pudding!…
