Get Out of Jail Free: The Vegan’s 100 List

You knew it was coming.

Yup, today I’m using my MoFo version of a Get Out of Jail Free card and filing out that Vegan’s 100 List that’s been making the rounds. It’s not even that I don’t have anything about which to blog, but more that I didn’t have time this morning, I’m at work now (I work super part-time… three hours today!), and after work I need to get ready and then head up to my brother’s college for an end-of-term party tonight. Coming up in the near future will be posts about super awesome banana-oat muffins, super-garlicky baba ganoush, and possibly Chocomole. But for today, my list! Which is bound to be pretty pathetic. I’m a new vegan, but that’s really no excuse, since I was effectively vegan for ~9 months before making the official switch. Ah well. I’ll think of it as inspiration. Also. Sorry for the commentary, but I can’t resist adding my two cents. It makes posting the list a little less of a cop-out, though, right? Heh.

1) Copy this list into your blog or social networking site profile, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out or italicize any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment on this post linking to your results.
