If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know that I hate wasting food. I hate wasting food more than I hate missing my turn to grab a free cookie. When I see edible items rocking a fuzzy new hairdo I get slightly perturbed. When I shop for food, I make sure I ONLY buy what I am going to eat..nothing more, and nothing less. Living with other people sometimes means that they buy food they don’t end up eating.
I give food items a time limit. If these items are not consumed in a decent amount of time, they are free for all and will be consumed by me before they are consumed by the garbage. This weeks prized goods came in pairs: two cucumbers, two sweet potatoes, two green peppers, and two avocados. The time limit was up and I officially stated claim over these items. The cucumbers didn’t make it. I was only able to salvage half of one and by the next day the rest had mysteriously changed to a blue fuzzy color. The remaining items were successfully consumed over four meals.
Meal number one shown above: Finished off tomatoes and broccoli from Manfriend’s house, along with one avocado, one sweet potato, half of a green pepper, spinach from my house, cheese, and AMAZING NEW SAUSAGES! All mixed in with some rice mac and cheese. All we “purchased” for this meal were the sausages and the mac n cheese.
SO onto the sausages. I have noticed that I have a bit of an intolerance to soy products. I get super gassy when I consume too much soy. I mean..clear the room gassy. In an attempt to conduct my own experiment, I cut out soy for a week. The gas was gone. The bloating was gone. The SMELL was gone. I now try to avoid soy at all costs and have been soy free for over a month. With that being said, most vegetarian “meats” are soy based. Manfriend discovered a new vegan sausage with NO SOY!
This is one of three flavors, so far I am whoa impressed. Two great things..26g of protein AND this product is out of Seattle! The protein comes from wheat, not soy which means I am no longer ostracized on the floor with the dog at night.
Meal number three shown below: Tricolor quinoa mixed with the LAST of the bell pepper, LAST of the tomato, eggplant, onion, pistachios, and the LAST of the green pepper.
Meal number four will be tonight and will include the other sweet potato and the other avocado. Nothing else has followed the cucumbers into the trash. WIN! My street name is “Human Garbage Disposal.”
New item: Multi colored cauliflower. Purple, green, and yellow.
Lastly in ‘awesome news’: I will be stepping out of my comfort zone and trying three new Kombucha flavors in the upcoming weeks. I have been stuck on the multi-green flavor for months. Amanda at Synergy Drinks has been kind enough to give me three coupons for a free drink!
Thank you thank you thank you Amanda! I will be posting about the new flavor consumptions.
