Adjusting to Life as a Part-Time Vegan

I am no longer frustrated with finding vegan food for lunch. I have adapted quite nicely. Here is a gallery of some of the things I have made for lunch over the past few weeks.

Chinese "Chicken" Salad:

Fried Green Tomato Po Boy:

Red Beans & Rice:

Grilled Zucchini Steaks with Risotto, Tomatoes, and Pesto:

Tempeh Torta with Grilled Squash, Avocado & Black Beans:

all of these pictures make my mouth water! especially that tempeh sandwich.

being vegan isn't hard. you just need to "adapt nicely" like you said you have been. for me, the hardest part about making the switch was just getting out of the habit of grabbing something off the shelf and eating it. i've been vegan for less than a year (october will a year) and i love it, i wish i did this a lot sooner!

good luck, i hope you like it.

That fried green tomato po'boy looks so good. Is there a sauce that you used,if you don't mind sharing.. or is it just the caramelized onions that contribute a 'wetness'? Beautiful photos.
