I knew this would happen sooner or later! It’s time to cash in my Get Out of Jail Free card and take… a survey. Dun dun dunnn! But I’m going to do a new one, not the same one that’s been floating around the internet since MoFo began. So… yeah. On to the questions!
A is for Avocado: How do you like yours prepared?
Oh please. As if there’s any other way than in a beautifully simple guacamole!
B is for Bread: Regardless of nutrition, what is your favorite type?
Rye! Or pumpernickel! Basically anything flavorful and crusty. But really, it’s all good.
C is for Chocolate: What is your favorite kind currently?
Anything darker than, say 70%. I had a Chocolove Almond and Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate a few weeks ago, and I’ve been thinking it out ever since.
D is for Doughnuts: You might not currently eat them, but what kind do you fancy?
I haven’t had a doughnut in years! In my pre-vegan days, I was a Dunkin’ Donuts glazed donut kind of girl. Oh, for that sugary sweet stickiness…
E is for Egg(plant): How would you like yours prepared?
How about in a vegan eggplant parmesan? Or in a sandwich with basil, tomatoes, and vegan mozzarella?
F is for Falafel: Yay or nay?
G is for Groceries: Where do you purchase yours?
Mostly at the Willy St. Co-op. I go to Woodman’s occasionally; they have a really decent selection of vegan/”natural” foods at cheap prices. I hit up Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods every couple months, and Copps when I’m really in a pinch – it’s but a five-minute walk from my apartment.
H is for Hot Beverages: What is your favorite hot drink?
Oh dear. It’s a toss-up between straight-up dark black coffee and tea… nearly any kind of tea.
I is for Ice Cream: Pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.
Umm… chocolate peanut butter cup with hot fudge. Maybe that’s not a very fun topping, but it’s classic.
J is for Jams or Jellies: Do you eat them? If so, what kind and flavor?
My current favorite is Crofter’s organic Morello cherry jam. Oh man, it has these great cherry bits and super delicious intense cherry flavor… and it’s often on sale at the aforementioned co-op!
K is for Kashi: Name your favorite Kashi product?
Probably their Pumpkin Flax Plus granola. I’m also learning to enjoy the Red Berry Crunch Flax Plus cereal; it’s reminiscent of other cereals that feature freeze-dried strawberries, but it’s not too sweet, which I love.
L is for Lunch: What was/is yours today?
Happy Herbivore’s Eggless Salad in a pita pocket and a Starkrimson pear.
M is for microwave: What is your favorite microwave meal/snack?
I don’t actually own a microwave! If I did, I’d go for microwaved popcorn. Not the kind you buy in a gross buttery bag but the kind you make yourself, where you just put kernels in a paper bag, fold over the top, and pop it in the microwave!
N is for nutrients: Do you like carbs, fats, or proteins best?
What a cruel question. At the end of the day, I guess I’d go for carbs.
O is for oil: What kind do you like to use?
Extra-virgin olive oil is my standby. I also like coconut oil.
P is for protein: How do you get yours?
Oh please. I get it everywhere!
Q is for Quaker: How do you like your oats?
Ideally, cooked on the stove (with almond milk, not water – ick!) and immersion blended to creamy bliss with lots of spices. Realistically, cooked in the microwave at work. I always make it with almond milk and a little hot water, and I add dried cranberries.
R is for roasting: What is your favorite thing to roast?
Broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts. Also potatoes.
S is for sandwich: What’s your favorite kind?
Oh gosh. Anything packed with veggies and featuring avocados.
T is for travel: How do you handle eating while traveling?
I always bring lots of snacks, I do my research beforehand, and I look for Asian restaurants in a pinch.
U is for unique: What are some of the unique foods that you like?
Meh, I don’t know. I feel like many vegan stapes are “unique” in that omnivores think they’re weird. I like them all.
V is for vitamins: What kind do you take?
I take a sublingual liquid B12 supplement every couple of days, and I take a vegan vitamin D2 pill when I remember.
W is for Wiener schnitzel: Do you ever recreate this traditional Czech food?
Never have I ever… yet?!
