While playing a game with my younger siblings, I discovered that we are indeed of the same blood line. I asked a question, and my brother answered perfectly.
I would have to agree to a degree, one of the most fascinating things about being a human is comprehending the amazing flavors of different foods. I’ve been away from home, but I haven’t been slacking in the food department. My Arizonian family agreed to go to a vegan restaurant with me and fortunately for me this restaurant is located in Seattle too!
Started with an Asian style soup, and a sip of my dads Indian style chai.
I love Asian food, but I like getting American style vegan food. I find it to be more fascinating and impressive when a vegan protein can resemble real meat. I went vegan because I love animals, not because I didn’t like the taste of meat! I got the Hawaiian burger with a side of steamed veggies.
This burger was a mess, which lets you know it was delicious. Overall everyone approved..except the one that got the nasty vegan hot dog. It was rough, even I didn’t like it. Dessert always saves the day.
I haven’t had carrot cake in years. This was delicious. An unpictured cheesecake was also annihilated.
I’ve eaten a LOT of food, so I’ve been running a lot too. Today I had an amazing 8miler, and the previous two days I had comfortable 3milers. TOMORROW I am going to my first hot yoga class with my aunt and I couldn’t be more excited!
Q: Does your family eat the same way you do? No, but everyone makes an effort to try my hippie fuel.

Drooling over that waffle!

Will your family adopt me?! And when is Manfriend going to start his own vegan food blog? I’m recruiting him for the next Virtual Vegan Potluck!
SO funny you say that, he’s been thinking about making a vegan/running/survivalist blog and I keep telling him DO IT! I’ll have to show him your comment!!

Show him! He needs to get after it, pronto! And I’m intrigued by the survivalist part, having some of those leanings myself…
Luv What You Do
My boyfriend and I eat totally different in that I love veggies and he loves red meat, but we both agree on seafood for sure! What game were you playing? That looks like fun!
One word: FOODGASM. 😀 Can I come out to eat with you next time??
That burger and carrot cake both look amazing. I love “proving” to people that vegan food is daaarrrrrn tasty!! 🙂
ooooo Manfriend can cook eh! Nice!
I’ve tried yoga, but never hot yoga. Please let us know what the fuss is all about! I’m just not sure I’d enjoy sitting in a room sooo hot. haha!
Alex @ therunwithin
that all does look like amazing food, just delicious amazing food!
Melissa @ Mouthwatering Morsel
oh shnazz … shizz looks good. def. asking you about the best food places when I ever visit your world!
YUM to all of that. Carrot cake is awesome. Plus I love Manfriend’s foodie creations, he’s such a champ. HOORAY for hot yoga – I’m excited to hear what you think of it 🙂
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
Dessert definitely always saves the day – that carrot cake looks delicious, and I’m not even a big fan of having veggies in my desserts. My family’s eating habits and tastes don’t even come close to resembling mine, but we somehow all manage to get along anyways 🙂
GiGi Eats Celebrities
UM CLEARLY WE WERE TWO PEAS IN THE SAME POD BECAUSE I WAS TOTALLY PLAYING THAT GAME THE OTHER DAY WITH MY FAMILY!!!!!!!!
1. I would definitely NOT want to ever be a horse-drawn sled driver in -20 degree weather
2. Cheesiest Pop Song Ever… Oh my, that’s a tough one, probably EVERY pop song out there?
3. Since I lived without TV for two-three years, I really can live without ALL of them, but now that I have a TV… I am obsessed with HGTV!!!
4. The most fascinating thing about being human is probably our ability to talk, write, and create things like computers, cars, etc… Also I think it’s pretty cool how some people HATE certain things while others LOVE them – I mean shit, if everyone was like me, the world would be obsessed with salmon, exercise, hot tea and eating LOADS of FOOD and CELEBRITIES (lol).
5. The most confusing thing ever… Oh my, ANYTHING when my blood sugar is low, LOL!!!!
Does my family eat the same way I do?? My brother and father = NOPE! My sister and mother = YUP! 🙂
Ohh now I am making it a goal to play this game when we meet. With some vodka and PB&J’s.
Haha, love the nickname manfriend. It’s perfect. Plus, your manfriend is extra awesome because he can cook. Lucky duck. 😉
Food is Epic. It is impossible not to think it is joy for a human being to enjoy food Bon appetit! (I spelled that wrong, didn’t I.)
soooo I am drooling.. surprised? That waffle looks so delicious! Ugh, I could definitely go for that right now. Along with that carrot cake, and the mac and cheese, and the burger, and the chai, and soup…so errrrrr…everything? hahaha YUM! 😀
Dang girl, your manfriend has got some skill in the kitchen. What a keeper!!
My dad can not live with out a potato or rice with his meal. Being home for 10 days was a total struggle and not close to what I normally eat. I would just opt out of the starch at dinner but he used flour as a thickener for random things and there were definitely ingredients I normally don’t eat but I didn’t feel like fighting him the whole time. So while he tried I feel slightly sluggish after all the noms I had that were not paleo. AND it was a cool 20 degrees all week so my running wasn’t enough. Now that I am back in VA I will take advantage of the warmer weather!!
PS – carrot cake = love of my life.
Luckily, my family (and my in-laws) eat the same way I do, with just a few exceptions. The only downfall is that we probably aren’t as encouraged to branch out and try new food as we would be if some of us ate differently.
Life After Swimming
There is a Loving Hut by my cousin’s but it’s sort of far so I’ve never gone! Your manfriend sure is fantastic…now he’ll have to make it for you when you see him next!
Brittany, it is certainly a joy to share our meals with you and I am glad you are game for trying new things. We will definitely have to make the brussels, cauliflower and cee cee bean dish again, but next time add some more kick!
Change of Pace
Sounds like you’re having a nice time! My husband ate at Loving Hut in SF in a mall. He was in love!
Would you bf share the vegan mac and cheese recipe he uses? We’re looking for a good one!
Both our families try to make vegan food for my husband, but we usually bring something too!
Happy New Year
When I get home he and I are making it together, I will be sure to write down the recipe!!
YUM! no, no one in my life eats like I do actually lol Not one. My Sissy does a good job at trying everything though 🙂
That is awesome that your family enjoys your “hippie food” or tries too. When I was going through my most serious diabetic state, my parents made a big effort to make everything as sugar free through the household as possible so I didn’t feel so outkasted.
Nice! I think I need to teach my man-friend how to cook. LOL! 🙂
The Healthy Flavor
Dang I’m salivating over here!! That food looks soooo good!! That Hawaiian burger wow. Happy new year!?
Er food porn MUCH? YUM! I want that burger and carrot cake- sounds like the ideal meal: carbs & protein in the burger, veggies in the carrot cake (yes it counts in my world) ;)!
Happy 2013, Britt!
I love eating meals that are supposed to be classical “meat” dishes with their vegetarian substitutions! That Hawaiian burger looks awesome.
And that thanksgiving-inspired waffle? So ingenious!
Life's a Bowl
That carrot cake and that waffle look divine, yum! Your manfriend looks like a keeper 😉
di @ life of di.
That carrot cake looks so delicious! Carrot cake is my favorite type of cake besides lemon 🙂 I would say that my family eats fairly similar to me; however, my husbands side eats a little bit differently (heavy on the meat/sugar/salt). It always makes family gatherings a bit more interesting.
All of the food looks so delicious & we also have 1 loving hut restaurant over here!! Only 1 in all Belgium! 🙂 That carrot cake looks amazing too! Yum yum yum!
I will have to mention this restaurant to the BF. His parents are vegetarian and we are always keeping an eye out for a new place to go with them.
Rach @ This Italian Family
Haha! Your brother is a smart one. 😉 And that vegan mac and cheese looks delicious, friend! My family definitely doesn’t eat like I do at home, but I do love the delicious food my momma makes. Not necessarily healthy, but oh so delicious!
wow! even the presentation is impressive!!
Your brother is wise 😉
