Things I Used to Eat

One of the main reasons I was reticent about becoming a vegetarian or a vegan was because of all of the yummy things on which I’d be missing out.  Let’s take a short trip down memory lane shall we?

Exhibit A


Curry goat, rice and peas, fried plantain and a salad at Caribbean Curry House (in Montreal). It was delish!

Exhibit B


Chicken soup. With Ramen noodles. Like a boss.
(I threw away that sachet/packet of seasoning that the noodles came with though. This is made with chicken broth).

Exhibit C


Saltfish. Nuff said.

Exhibit D


Saltfish fritters. For those who don’t know, it’s basically a batter (flour, maybe some cornmeal, baking powder) with green onions, peppers, and salted cod, fried like a pancake. Yummy!!

Exhibit E


I forget what this was called. All I know is that it tasted REAL good. It was a chicken sandwich with a side of fries and a Mexican soup of some sort. It was the best soup I have ever had in my life. Hands down. This meal was at the Cheesecake Factory in downtown Baltimore, Maryland (December 2010).

Exhibit F


Curry goat — the stuff that dreams are made of.

So yeah.  That’s what I gave up for a life of vegetables.  lol.  No, I’m joking.  I still have no regrets!  Actually, I think the most rewarding part of this whole thing is that I’ve been able to recreate and cook stuff that tastes just as good and is good for me!
