Vegan MoFo: Magic Protein Shake of the Gods

Simple, delicious, and oh so good for you.

MagicShake

Blend it all up, of course in your Vitamix.  This shake is full of chocolaty goodness.  And with these super-food ingredients it’s loaded with calcium, protein (15g from the powder alone), omega 3s, potassium, and all the goodness of cacao.  Only addition that could possibly make it better is peanut butter, like a Miko’s Miracle from Secret Spot.  Maybe next time.

Vegan MoFo: Brekkie Sandwich!

Best. Easy. Breakfast. EVER!Brekkie Sandwich

  • Toasted whole wheat english muffin (or whatever bready item you like)
  • Favorite Vegan Sausage (or Fakin’ Bacon is great too)
  • Mashed Avocado
  • Sliced Tomato
  • Slice O’ Tofu
  • Native Cheese

Here’s the dirt on this household favorite :

Fry up the sausage and tofu in a little olive oil with some Bragg’s liquid aminos sprankled in there for salty goodness.  Also liberal sprinkes of Costco Organic No-Salt Seasoning  add a nice flavor.

The magic ingredient however, is the Native Cheese.  This is a modified recipe from Tanya’s delicious Native Chis from Native Foods.  I can’t mention that place enough.  Native Foods.  Native Foods.  Ok, anyway here’s how to make my version:

  • 2 cups almonds or cashews, or any combination
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt, or himalayan pink sea salt if you’re fancy
  • 1/4 large onion
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic (the kind in oil)
  • 1 Tbsp. Raw Tahini

Place it all in your $500 Vitamix and blend until creamy smooth.  Yes, I said $500 Vitamix, because you really need to own one if you don’t.  It’ll never break, and you can do amazing wondrous things with it.  Go ahead and try with a wimpy normal blender.  You won’t be happy. I’m sure many of you have variations on this, post yours in the forum!
