Stereotypical Vegan Food Alert!



First a smoothie. It's the beloved pre-yoga beverage of us coastal, urban, bleedin' heart, health-nut types, but it should be recommend drinking for everyone! I've been having this one for breakfast almost every day now and been feeling pretty awesome. I blended up some frozen raspberries, a banana, a handful of spinach, (you can't taste the greens, don't worry) a teaspoon of flax meal, a teaspoon of cocoa powder and some plain soy milk. Sounds weird but is delicious. What are your favorite combinations guys? I have some mango in the freezer for instance...



Authenticity is sooo overrated, and so are nationalism, and arguably, my cooking skillz. Thus I present you with the India meets Japan stir-fry. I couldn't decide what I wanted, and now you don't have to either! In here we've got broccoli, "baby bella" mushrooms, brown rice, onions, cashew bits, unsweetened coconut flakes, fresh garlic and ginger, safflower oil, sesame oil, tamari, lime juice, Japanese curry powder, red pepper flakes, and black pepper.

Jill I swear my mom would just adore you, the only reason I'd go anywhere near blended spinach is that she's been slipping it to me on visits. I can attest that it really doesn't taste like spinach when mixed with other stuff. For those willing to overdose on healthiness, kale is also a green that can be blended, though the texture is a bit coarser (some like to strain before drinking) and really, this is only for you hard core health nuts.
