I trekked through the most intense storm of my life across campus just to get some vegan pizza. And it was completely worth it. This stuff was so rich and tasty. Not sure what brand of cheese it was, but it was really good, had pineapples and a thick doughy crust. Delish!

I heard Michael Pollan the other day on NPR and definitely thought it was interesting and you might too! This interview is jam-packed with info on the agriculture industry.
Oh and here he is!
So I had an idea today as I pondered the excessively sugary, annoyingly colorful, or ridiculously bland cereal choices at the cereal station at the cereal bar in the dining hall today. So rice krispies were the least offensive of the cereals, but it is just so bland. Turning around to see what I could spice it up with I spotted the coffee mugs...get it? Yes I mixed coffee with my cereal and yes it was great. Try this if you hate boring cereal:
rice krispies (or any bland-ass cereal for that matter)
make a bowl of cereal like normal, add a dash of chocolate soymilk (depending on if your a mocha or latte person) then add a little sugar and a splash of coffee. Slice on some bananas for texture and extra delish-iousness! SO GOOD!

So the other day the salad bar had not one, not two, but three types of beans! Overwhelmed by my choices, I had to use all three. So what better way than tacos to enjoy the black, white and garbanzo beans. These tacos were good:
Pile everything onto a taco shell. Eat!

Easy and god when there's nothing vegan in the dining hall. Just greabbed some tofu from the salad bar, pineapple (even though it was really shitty pineapple), doused it in BBQ sauce and microwaved it. Voila! A good snack!
Normally when the taco bar has vegan "meat" it's seitan, but today it was crunched up veggie burgers. At first it looked like a rip off, but when I put it in my health food nachos, it was super good. I'm gonna remember this next time I make tacos at home and run out of the taco tofu. A good sub no doubt.
If I could taste one type of meat ever again, it would have to be sweet and sour pork. I don't know what is is about that oily, MSG-laden goodness that I always loved as a little girl, but I know that's all I wanted when we went out to Chinese food. After becoming a vegetarian, I discovered sweet and sour wheat puffs (fried...puffs of wheat? I don't know how to describe them) at a local Chinese food restaurant which seemed to do the trick. But now I have the ultimate: Sweet and Sour Tofu and Vegetables and pineapple right here at the dining hall. It has the same sauce as the meat stuff but is vegan and somewhat healthy.
Couldn't pass up this goodness when I ventured to the distant dining hall across campus. Fresh chard as a salad green. Super fresh, super pretty, super good for me! I'll be trekking over there more often if they keep that up. Just mixed it with some bell peppers and vinaigrette.
