First off, in the "don't let anyone tell you vegans are weak" category, I won a silver medal in a state championship bike race today. We decided to celebrate a bit by having something fun (but easy) for dinner. Enter the (tempeh) bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato sandwich. The lettuce and tomato were fresh from our garden and we went out and bought some nice whole grain bread and a hefty avocado. Add some vegan mayo and Vegan with a Vengeance tempeh bacon and it was an excellent meal. But since I was so famished from racing, I also cooked up some yellow squash and zucchini (with fresh tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt & pepper) and then put a little yummy pasta salad on the side that Darlene had made for dinner last night. And I made short work of two sandwiches too, plus extra tempeh bacon and avocado. I like riding my bike just for the sheer joy of riding but it's also nice in that it often allows for the consumption of mass quantities of awesome food.
