The Project: One Year

Today is the one year anniversary of The Project, aka  my Veganniversary. While I haven’t stayed perfectly animal-free all year (I have no plans to quit eating honey, and soy cheese containing milk protein occasionally finds its way to my fridge still), my diet has completely changed in the past year. In celebration and commemoration, I will give you two lists:
Foods I Miss:
Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets.  Sweet fancy Moses do those crazy conservative christians know how to fry up some goddamned chicken.
Seared Tuna.
Fresh Mozzarella / Caprese Salad.  There will never be a suitable substitute for this, I’m afraid.
Favorite Foods:
Skittles. Newly free of gelatin, holla!
Baked Garlic-Sesame-Ginger Tofu. I have finally perfected a tofu recipe.
Roasted Vegetables of Any Kind.
Dry Roasted Almonds.
Quinoa. Superfood.
Hummus. Anywhere, any time, forever and always, hummus.
Sweet Potato Chips. See also: Sweet Potato Fries, Baked Sweet Potatoes, etc.
Pizza with Carmelized Onions where the Cheese Used to Be. You’ll never need cheese again, almost.
Seitan. Praise Seitan!
