A vegans guide to flinders lane take away.

1. Glicks. They have a range of different bagels including sun dried tomatoes and chocolate ones. Yes chocolate! They are so yummy that I ate two of them the other day plain. Now though I have tofutti cream cheese in the fridge, so watch out. For about 60c x 2 its a very cheap yummy lunch.

2. Suji Sushi-Okoniyamki You have to ask for it without mayo. I find one filling enough and the whole office seems to be addicted to it at the moment. At $2.50 again another cheap lunch.

3. Satay Bar. Two tofu skewers, satay sauce, rice and salad for about $6.60. They also have vegetable skewers but they aren't quite as satisfing as the tofu ones.

4. The organic food and wine deli. Serves a variety of things: pies, hand rolls, chocolate brownies and more. Yummy but not cheap and they are only open weekdays for lunch.

Yummy Xmas Lunch

I am so sick of eating out

The kitchen renovations are taking forever, so far it has been 10 days without a useable kitchen.

Last night we decided after eating at 7 different veg restaurants in the last 10 days that veg out time is probably the healthiest. Last night I had black bean tofu and veg, black eyed pea dhal and brown rice with the best garlic roti ever. Mr T ordered there 'no oil' dish which unlike most of their dishes was made fresh. They brought out a really colourful plate of steamed veggies, tofu and rice noodles with sweet and sour sauce on the side that looked so healthy I almost wanted to cry.

Between eating out every night and way too much going out Mr T and I are both starting to feel the effects.

He is really sick and i just feel really blahhhhhhhhhh plus i have a coldsore :-(

Tonight we got creative, I made black bean (canned) burritos in the sandwhich press which we had with salsa and corn chips. But then of course is the question of how do the dishes without a kitchen sink? I think its going to be in the bath.

Raw foodists, now would be a great time to mention some super easy raw dishes that aren't hard to prepare and not much mess to clean up either.
