Unless I go out with other people, I eat all of my meals at home or bring my lunch when I know I won’t be able to make it home in the middle of the day. I go through phases all the time, which is great since I throw out less food and I enjoy eating one thing until I get tired of it. Last month it was beans and rice, or bean salad. This month it’s definately the tempeh sandwich, inspired by an amazing experience I had at Hungry Tigers Too during my trip to Portland aka Land of Prolific Vegan Food. Maybe the sleep-deprived cold and diet of donuts and a smoothie was what elevated this sandwich to a divine level for me, but it was awesome. The grilled tempeh and vegan mayo was what I remembered most. The rest were standard sandwich veggies and a pickle, if I recall correctly.
So I’ve been eating this at least once a day for the past week. Lunch AND dinner today. At this rate, this phase is might be on its way out but I still have lots of tempeh from whole foods (surprisingly has the best price) and so far I still adore it.
I like trying new things when I go out but I always have a fonder place in my heart for the simple things I eat every day, like cereal and frozen bananas, pb&j, salads, and my default sandwich.
