Is Gardein Lying? Because it sure tastes like chicken

Lunch today was chinese. Orange chicken to be exact. But this orange chicken was cruelty-free :) It was low in calories and high in protein. It looked so much like real chicken that I had to triple check. The Aussie could not believe how chicken-e it tasted.

This was the Aussie man-sized portion. I had a 1/3 of this amount. The yellow chunk in the back is fresh pineapple--yum!

Today also involved picking this up . . .

Now, I hope I can get it to Australia this weekend with minimal struggle. The trip involves a stop in LA, Auckland, and finally a 90 minute drive from Melbourne to the Aussie's parents home.

Dinner was a favorite "fast food"

Multi-grain avocado and cucumber sushi, oh how I love thee.

Along with some amazing iced tea from the coffee shop in Wholefoods. Best.tea.ever.

Today I also did something pretty darn exciting. I booked a cruise to the Bahamas. I've never been, so I'm very excited. The Aussie's brother is coming to visit, so all three of us are going on a cruise at the end of January.

It looks like heaven to me :) It was also really affordable--300 per person for 3 nights.

Off to shop for bridal party gifts,

  1. I don't think I've ever seen Gardein available to buy in can be pretty limited in terms of interesting vegan options!
    Although i'm a little put off by things that taste like 'real meat', so not sure how it would go down...
    Bahamas! Very nice. Tropical getaways are lush.
