The Vegan's Hundred

I found this on the Bittersweet blog and thought it was a real neat idea! There's a LOT of vegan food out there, so I was curious myself to see how much of this I've tried.

(I've only said that I've eaten something if it was the VEGAN version- pregan omni stuff doesn't count)

(I've also made my own comments in green)

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

1. Natto
2. Green Smoothie
3. Tofu Scramble (I just made it for the first time ever like yesterday, so there will be a post on that soon!)

Uh oh, I've only tried 37 of those... I fail! Guess that means I should eat more :) There are a lot of these that I have always wanted to make, so perhaps I should just get to that!

Peggy the Veggie said...

:) Thanks!!

I tried them on a salad at a restaurant in Kelowna, B.C. once... It was only a little big of shavings and I couldn't even taste it, but that still counts, right? :D
