Steve, Don’t Eat It!

Posted in New Links on July 25, 2010 by Verge

At work, while winding through fifty year old film, I often bounce around the internet to occupy my caffeine fueled mind.  Usually I use stumbleupon, or digg, or just bounce off blogs until I end up at a dead end.  The other day I spent at least an hour on Steve’s blog, a hilarious place called thesneeze.com.

Check out his featured page called Steve, Don’t Eat That!   He courageously eats things that other cultures call food and we call rotten garbage.  And, to his credit, he actually is pretty objective about eating filth that I could barely stomach just looking at (see the bit about the swollen corn).

My blog has been loosely based on eating habits to a degree and I thought that Steve’s willingness to try foods that people wouldn’t usually want in their mouths was quite brave.  And, as he e mailed me the other day, apparently he has survived it all and lives to tell the tales until another day.

New Link — Gardein Foods

Posted in New Links, Vegan and Vegetarian Lifestyle with tags , on April 30, 2010 by Verge

We love to shop at wholesale clubs, but it can be frustrating as well.  We cook almost every meal for ourselves, so it’s quite cost effective to buy raw ingredients in bulk.  Sometimes it’s difficult to find vegetarian, much less vegan foods at the wholesale clubs.  Don’t even ask about low sodium in there, either.  It doesn’t exist.

We know BJ’s  so well that we no longer need to read the labels.  We’ve read every label in the store, and they rarely change up the variety of their stock very much.  I was very surprised to see Monika had brought home a vegan chicken nugget pouch after visiting BJ’s yesterday.  As with other vegetarian products they’ve stocked in the past, this one may be short lived as well.  But I hope not.

The brand is Gardein.  It’s supposed to be a clever combination of “garden” and “protein.”  The actual name of the food they now stock at BJ’s is “seven grain crispy tenders.”  We baked them in the oven frozen last night with some sweet potato fries for about half an hour.  The directions said less, but I wanted them to actually be “crispy.”

Well, needless to say, they were delicious.  I’m sending Monika back today to pick up four more pouches.  They were awesome.  We just had them as chicken nuggets with some organic ketchup to dip, but you could really use these things for all kinds of recipes.  Definitely could make a burger with them.  Could crumble them up in a big salad.  Even make them up in any baked chicken dish with perhaps a mushroom wine sauce, which is what I may try next.

I don’t expect to see any of their other all vegan foods in BJ’s, but I’ll be sure to look for them at my next health store or Whole Foods visit.  It looks like most of their products are made with wheat gluten, which is honestly delicious.  If you try any of their foods, please comment and let me know how you liked them.

Eco Android’s Blog

Posted in New Links with tags on March 12, 2010 by Verge

So, tonight I add a new link.

www.ecoandroid.wordpress.com

This is Monika’s official blog.  Her first blog was originally written for a grad school assignment and was named VeganRobot.blogspot.com.  From that seed, my original blog, http://www.VeganRobot.WordPress.com, was grown.

Having taken the definitive shape of my own voice alone, I decided to change the name of my own blog to OnTheVergeOfTears.com.  Monika, still having her own voice and desire to have it heard, has once again plunged into the pool of public scrutiny and emotional transparency.

She has been getting a very positive response, and I truly hope she keeps up with it.  Visit her blog which his located under my Blogroll.  Also, peruse the other blogs listed there.  I’ve added them because they are worth the visit and I hope you’ll find them as entertaining as my own.
