Grood Finds

This is pretty much exciting. I love to be cheap. I love to eat vegan. Now, I can do these things together. If they could only make a VeganWorld, I would be fully satisfied.

This site is a li’l bit of pure gold. Search for vegan/vegetarian restaurants near you. Reviews, summaries, and sometimes prices included.

$12 for Organic Vegan Meal for Two with One Appetizer and Two Entrees (Up to $23.97 Value)

Thanks for the caring, Groupon. The vegan couples and gluttonous singles appreciate you.

Sublim(Become a Vegan!)inal

Now, isn’t that cute? Makes me feel all warm and toasty inside. (And this, of course, is the kind of toasty that is neither French nor buttered). The best part is that these can be made into postcards. A great way to send a friendly, subliminal message to friends and family that they need to change their eating habits!

Love (for you to become a vegan too),

Stanley’s Fruits & Vegetables

October 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

If you live in Chicago, Stanley’s is an excellent place to get quality, affordable produce. Heaps and heaps of it. For very little. I refuse to buy my vegetables anywhere else… if I can help it (usually I can’t, oops). For a little more background on the epicness that is Stanley’s, check out this little piece in the Chicagoist.

Check out that patriotic storefront.

Really. It’s a super place. We left having spent only $5 each. Our steals: two artichokes, two avocados, two purple onions, two cases of mushrooms, a bag full of zucchini, about six bell peppers, and a bag of peanuts for snacking.

Rachel and I decided to pick out some zucchini for a pasta dish or some sort of meatless-lasagna making venture in the near future. A small tragedy (embarrassment)  may have occurred.

We thought it would only be fitting, after saving so much money on produce, to purchase a couple seasoned chunks of vegetables – also called a “meal” – at Whole Foods. Only $8. Wait… didn’t we just spend $10 on pounds and pounds of vegetables? Perhaps there was a little impatience involved. Why wait ’til later to chop up our fresh, affordable produce in order to make a just-as-wholesome meal? When you gotta eat, you GOTTA eat.

It’s just so unfair,

At first sight, it seemed that the Whole Foods at Lincoln Park, Chicago was expecting us. After looking at the prices, it was clear that they were not.

What the Trap,

I never thought I would find raw meat tantalizing… Goodbye, family cookouts.

Chicken Run

October 11, 2011 § 1 Comment

In an attempt to save the  Bessies, Babes, and Bambies of our day, we have become vegan. Actually, I think the decision was made out of boredom. But, we’re totally devoted. Really. No, really. We actually are.

This is gonna be great.

Hopelessly Devoted,

Test Run

This “blog” is in the process of becoming. I like to eat. And I like animals. Sometimes I like to eat animals. Mostly I like to play with them… when they’re not on my plate. How do I sort out this confusing relationship?

Over and Out (whatever that means),
