Lunch Box 522: Vegan for a day


Back to the


Where's the meat? Whoa. It's finally happened. I've finally packed a vegan lunch. It wasn't by accident, either. I had some boiled eggs, and some carrot & raisin salad (which is made with yogurt) but I decided, nope, it's straight plant matter and fungus today. I can cope with it just to prove I can.

So, this day I ate simmered shiitake mushrooms, baked Japanese sweet potato, steamed broccoli, grapes, and pink orange. And I enjoyed it. I've heard that some call shiitake mushrooms "vegetarian steak," and while that my be taking it a bit far, they do have a substantial taste and texture to 'em.

Tomorrow, back to omnivorosity.

Wanna talk about it?
