Do you have any tips for finding vegetarian options at fast food restaurants? Like Wendys for example has nice salads, but they all have meat on them?
Wendy’s is one of the better fast food options for a vegetarian. They have a side salad that doesn’t have meat and they have baked potatoes.Taco Bell and Subway are other good places for vegetarian and reasonably healthy food. There are a few fast food chains that have veggie burgers (Burger King and Freddy’s). Starbucks has vegetarian bistro boxes. Breakfast menus also usually have something vegetarian, so check out places that serve breakfast all day like Dunkin’ Donuts. Other than that, most places have side menu items like fries, onion rings, and mozzarella sticks. There are options out there! You just might have to scour the menu.
Sunday is Castiel’s favorite day. It’s the only day he doesn’t have to work, and it’s also the day of the weekly farmer’s market in his neighborhood. He’ll get breakfast from one of the food trucks—potato-stuffed tacos or avocado toast with vegan mayo and alfalfa shoots or sometimes even a donut stuffed with pistachio-orange crème—and wander through the aisles with his reusable bags, visit every stall at least twice before he settles on the veggies he’ll chop into his lunch salads. He’ll spend too long talking to Mr. Cain, the vendor who sells honey products made from the bees he keeps, agreeing that yes, he really does need to come by the farm and see it all for himself one day soon (knowing that he has no time for such frivolity). He’ll enjoy the hum of conversation around him and the children running from stall to stall and the dogs out walking with their owners. Sunday is temporary, but it is a relief from the sometimes oppressive business of his everyday life.
This story was written for the spn_springfling and can stand alone. However, I do plan to add more to it in the future.
Could you teach me how to cook? At the very moment I can make toasts
The frailty of humanity never ceases to amaze, and I am unsure how your lot continues to exist on this earth as a species when so many of you are subsisting off of mere badly burnt wheat and wheat by-products. I just want you to know, scarsbymonkeys, that you have personally offended me.
I try to eat vegan but I can't get past the taste. This is so much so that it makes me violently ill to my stomach. I ended up giving it up because no matter what recipe I tried the food just didn't taste good to me and I ended up starving myself and wasting money. In the end all I have managed to do is cut our dairy products.
What sort of recipes did you try - ones that use mock meats/cheese etc, or things that have a lot of gluten (seitan) or soy (tofu) or nuts, or anything that you wouldn’t normally eat a lot of?
Here’s a few options that don’t include anything ‘special’ or different: mashed potatoes with peas, rice and beans, pasta with tomato sauce, salad, tacos, smoothies, potato salad, cookies, sandwich with fried zucchini and veggies, baked rice stuffed peppers, stir fry, lentils with steamed veggies, brownies and muffins, veggie shepherds pie, cheeseless pizza or with homemade cheese (cashews or tofu or whatever you can have), zucchini fritters, pancakes with jam/dark chocolate/maple syrup, spaghetti with lentil&rice “meatballs”, mexican salad, homemade vegan burgers, carrot hotdogs, soups and stews…
Cutting out dairy products is a great accomplishment, for many people it’s one of the hardest things about going vegan, so you’re close, don’t give up yet.
I feel like the world is testing me since I declared I wanted to go vegetarian and currently not eating pork or beef bc Thursday I got potatoe soup and it has bacon bits in it and then today I got a cheese and potatoe burrito from taco bell which I always got anyway and it never had meat in it and now suddenly today it had meat LMAO
