Eating is Hard… Day 90

Eating is hard … and so is traveling.

I’m at my father’s house this weekend because my mechanic needs to put rear brakes on my car. This brake situation has become superiorly problematic but there is finally a light at the end of the very long and narrow tunnel.

After three different purchases (and returns) I am now the proud owner of rear brake shoes for my 2013 Chevy Cruz LT. And in the morning I will be able to pump my brake with confidence.

But to get those shoes on my car I have to travel over an hour and spend the weekend at my fathers house.

(SIGH)

Let me preface everything I’m about to say with this statement. I love my dad. He is great! He buys me watermelons because he knows I can’t buy good ones in my city. He orders food items that I can’t find and ships them to me. He even chips in money for the cat that he made me take to my apartment.

But…

I hate staying at my father’s house.

There is no food here! No veggies. No diary free anything. Not a gluten-free item to be found. What does he have that I can eat? Peanut butter and fruit.

Thank goodness for the peanut butter and fruit

I seriously spend so much money when I go to my fathers. Why do I drain my bank account when I go there? Because I need staples. I need veggies. I need bread. I need almond milk and soy cheese. And the staples aren’t cheap.

This is from my father’s freezer. I am pretty sure there is an item that was once a veggie hiding in here.

 

And before you suggest it I do bring my own food. I bring the fruit I want to eat (i.e. organic), my gluten-free bread and almond milk yogurt.

But I would love to not have to cart food across the state or buy food.

(SIGH) Oh well, but this time was not so bad. There was a present waiting me for me when I got to the house.

If you remember this post you remember how mad I was not being to find the Follow Your Heart VeganEgg. I found it! (In Texas.)And I ordered it. (From Texas.)

I don’t know why but I was expecting fake eggshells that I could crack (I miss that feeling) but I got some powder. Powder’s cool. Especially if it makes this

So, what’s in the VeganEgg?

Whole algal flour, whole algal protein, modified cellulose, cellulose, gellan gum, calcium lactate (plant source), carrageenan, nutritional yeast, black salt

It’s completely vegan and gluten-free. But I had to look up algal flour and algal protein,

Per Algavia.com algal flour is “a lipid powder that enables the creation of healthier products with indulgent taste and texture. This new healthier fat source allows you to reduce or replace dairy fats, oil and egg yolks.” Sounds good.

I haven’t used the VeganEgg yet but I will. As soon as I am home and I have vegan cheese and vegetables.

First step… OMELET!
