The other day I sort of forgot to eat until late in the day.  Trust me, that rarely happens! When I finally realized why I was so cranky (h.u.n.g.e.r.) I made a huge salad.

Holy-Crap-I-Forgot-To-Eat-Today-And-It's-3pm Salad on JL goes Vegan

JL’s Holy-Crap-I-Forgot-To-Eat-Today-And-It’s-3pm Salad

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce (yep)
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • Diced onion
  • Spoonful of sauerkraut
  • A small tomato, sliced
  • Half a cup of raw red cabbage
  • Sunflower seeds
  • This dressing: 3 tablespoons tahini, juice of one blood orange, one clove of garlic, and water (add enough to achieve desired consistency) mixed in the blender.
  • Fresh ground pepper

Serves ONE (no shame in my game)

Last night we went to dinner at Nosh in downtown Colorado Springs.

Vegan eats at Nosh in Colorado Springs

I tried the miso-roasted cauliflower, the spicy tofu bowl and the vegan chocolate pudding.  The cauliflower was delicious, as was the dessert. The tofu dish? Well, it wasn’t love.  I ate the tofu, the peanuts and some of the kale but the sauce was a little too salty and well, too much in general. The server was a doll. She came over and said “it doesn’t look like you enjoyed that.”  I said, laughing, “can we talk?”  She pulled up a chair (loved that) and I explained that I love tofu and I love kale and that sauce was just way overboard; the chef just might want to let the tofu and kale sing on their own. I went on to say that I wasn’t complaining, just providing feedback, and that I love that Nosh has great options for vegans. I asked her to thank the chef for me. She said she really appreciated hearing my perspective. When we got the check she had removed the tofu dish from the bill. Class. Act. I told her we would definitely be back – and we will, because it’s a super-fun and trendy place and the food is good.

I have announcements!
