As you guys know, I make my own nut butters now. Mostly peanut/cashew/sunflower butter or my own version of nutella that is now vegan friendly. At first I was using a plastic container to put the nut butters in but over time washing them in the dishwasher has cause them to warp a bit. Such things make me concerned about the level of freshness being the fact the tops wouldn't twist on tight anymore so now I have switched to glass containers.
Got these nice glass containers at an outlet store for about $2 each. I really like how they have that thing that pulls back(not sure what its called). I really feel this will help ensure the freshness of my nut butters :D On the right is the peanut butter which contains PEANUTS ONLY and maybe a little bit of cinnamon because that's how I roll. In the recent days of making them I've began to add water to softness although one day I want to make crunchy peanut butter ... The left is my special home made VEGAN nutella which contains RAW hazlenuts, medjool dates, vanilla extract(the REAL vanilla extract not that fake imitation crap that's nothing more then WHITE sugar and chemicals), and almond milk.
Really amazing feeling to know that you know all the ingrediants in something that YOU made !! Also dunno if you can tell but I have some microwavable sweet potatos in the background there. I will try those out in due time (:
I even labled them on top. Because you never know who's interest might be peaked by simply just taking a look.
I will get more of these jars at that price and use it when I make other things :'D
Some veggie burritos and some apple slices to make it look pretty with a full salad of red leaf lettuce with tomatos, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, nori, shaved apple, plaintain chips and a fresh orange juice squeezed from an orange as my salad dressing. I did sprinkle a bit of nutritional yeast on the salad too. Usually I add avacado and olives to my salad but I didn't have neither of them so I improvised with the roasted pumpkin seeds and the plaintain chips I had hanging around.
As far as the burritos I got spinach, lentils, red kidney beans and basically stir fry vegetables(broccoli, onion, red pepper, mushroom, mini corn, and water chestnut) with a nice hummus spread to keep everything inside the wrap. I don't know about anyone else but I'm all about that spicy hummus so extra cayenne is in it for me :P Not so often that I show stuff I eat in a blog like this but for some reason I have many people under the assumption that now that I eat vegan that I'm in some way shape or form "malnurished". Yeaaa ... dunno about you guys but all that doesn't look very "malnurished" to me. Don't ever let someone tell you that vegans don't eat anything :P
