Today after school, I took the bus to T&T, an Asian supermarket in West Edmonton Mall. Oh, how I love that place. Sure, it does sell some very not-vegan stuff, but there's tofu, vegetables, fruit, rice, spices, seitan, other fake meats, a billion different soymilks and fruit juices, sauces... It's awesome :)
This time, I bought some canned water chestnuts, canned sliced bamboo shoots, kimchi, and soybean noodles.
I love, love, love water chestnuts! I don't have them very often, only when we go out to eat (which is rarely), and if it's a Chinese restaurant. So why not buy a can so I can have them at home? WOOHOO.
I first had bamboo shoots recently, and I'm now a big fan of those as well. They'll be delicious incorporated into a stir-fry!
Kimchi is one of my new obsessions. It's spicy, salty, yummy, and good for you! I'm actually convinced that it's really been helping my digestion lately. I used to get bloated quite often, thanks to the high volume of high-fiber food in my vegan diet, but that's totally gone WAY DOWN. Is that TMI? Sorry. I'm just a happy, kimchi-munching fool :)
And those tofu noodles! They looked sooo cool, and at 2$ for a bag I couldn't resist. It looks like they're real healthy too- the only ingredients are soybeans and water. Yay! I'm thinking of using this high-protein 'spaghetti' just like wheat pasta- stay tuned for that!
