When I tell people I’m vegetarian, not vegan, I differentiate the two thusly: Being vegetarian is easy. You can do it by accident, really. Being vegan? Way harder. Being vegan is basically dragging yourself through an all-you-can-eat buffet and all YOU can have is water. You get an eye-opening education when you try to be vegan. And then there’s the “Wendy Way”.
Wendy Boyce, back for the second year to be a part of our company’s Health and Wellness Month, cooked up a storm for us. She focuses on really thinking about what is fueling your body and also enjoying the process of cooking.
My favorite part of Wendy’s offering this year (aside from her cooing to the vegetables like babies) was how EASY everything was. The ingredients were easy, the directions were easy, eating the food…EASY! The one black sheep of the easy ingredients was the Umeboshi Paste, but just like spices, once you acquire it, you use it. On the menu this year—brown rice balls, hummus tacos, blanched vegetables with tahini dressing, udon noodles with collard greens, tofu and tamari, and orange slices with pecans, cinnamon and honey. So tasty.
Either we’re getting healthier, or someone is hiding the snacks better! Cheers!
