Cozy Little High Horse

For the record, though they are both products made of soy, Genisoy Soy Crisps and Silk Mocha are two great tastes that DO NOT go great together. I’m feeling a wee bit ill at the moment. Go figure.

Today a co-worker asked me about vegan tuna salad, as I am the resident expert on all things vegan, and I told him about Tuno (which I still haven’t tried). I found there is currently a shortage of this product, but am unsure whether it is high demand or incredible disdain that has done it in. A bit of googling would suggest the latter.

Also on the topic of food, the husband happens to be a junk food vegan. His diet consists mainly of starch, starch and more starch. He feebly attempts to argue that potatoes are a vegetable and therefore nutritious. Recently we went out to lunch, at Everest, where he ate pakora – mostly batter-fried potatoes – and bread and white rice. For dinner that night I busted him eating waffle fries at his desk, and nothing else. Oh, I guess there was ketchup too (but no, that doesn’t count as a vegetable). Exasperated, I threw my hands up and said “I’m going to outlive you by 40 years!” With a goofy grin on his face he asked “is that a promise or a threat?

    Hmm … I can’t judge your husband. I’ve been known to survive solely on Tings. I’ve had people ask why I eat them when I’m not vegan. Duh. They’re GOOD!

  2. Heehee. The Tings, they are awesome. The little man is so addicted to them that we have to hide them on top of the fridge, way back beyond his reach. I shouldn’t judge the husband too harshly either. I eat extremely healthy, well-balanced meals, and I take my multi-vitamins, but then I blow it by eating unnecessary desserts. But I do worry about the man…

  4. Hey, thanks Jennie! Just think of the damage I could do if I had a newer camera. Some day. Sigh.

    Tuno–not so great. Kinda like what I imagine bad dog food to taste like–slimy, canned, yuck! We’re cheese-a-tarians (rather than the vegetarians we claim to be) at our house :). I worry about us, too.
