Protein Bomb

July 28, 2010 Leave a comment

My sandwich at lunch today had at least 21 grams of protein. No wonder I wasn’t hungry until way later…

  • Whole Foods Multigrain bread: 4 grams protein per slice
  • 4 slices LightLife faux turkey: 13 grams protein

Now I just gotta figure out who owns LightLife. I heard a rumor it was some huge conglomerate like Dean Foods or some bullshit like that. Could be a deal-breaker. That turkey is so good though. At least I know it is non-GMO.


Snobby Joes

Sloppy Joes for snobby vegans.

With tots of course.

Made with French green lentils, green bell pepper, tomato sauce, and onion. Our new Veganomicon is paying dividends already. I can see this in a public school lunch program. Easy, tasty, healthy, fun for kids, ethically delicious.

The Rocket

Now that’s a salad. Onion rings and tempeh bacon on top of greens and veggies. The dressing was fantastic too.

Some sort of curry

Cauliflower, peas, onions, rice, curry… you know it looks good. Well, it was.

Red curry with coconut milk

Why not, right?

"GFV" on the menu = gluten-free and vegan

Swing Thai for curry. How can you ever go wrong with curry? They have 3 locations in Denver. We went to the one at 301 S. Pennsylvania. Friendly staff. Worth a look.

Daiya cheddar and mozz

Daiya is here! After months of reading VegNews brag-blogs about how great Daiya cheese is, the notoriously melty vegan cheese is now available on Denver store shelves. I haven’t checked which stores have it, but I can tell you that the Cherry Creek Whole Foods does, and I imagine the other Denver locations probably do too. They had these 8 oz packs priced at $4.69 each.

Even though it was late when I got these puppies home, I had to try a bit, so I threw some cheddar shreds on a bit of leftover steamed broccoli. Tasty results:

Chipotle Garden Blend Burrito

Garden Blend Burrito

Chipotle is toying with a new vegan option. The Garden Blend Burrito has a Gardein-created chickenish faux meat, along with all the Chipotle standbys. It is only available at a few locations nationwide, so I had to check it out. In Denver, you can get it at the Chipotle on Alameda and Logan. Worth a taste.
