Another hummus attempt gone awry turned into a happy accident I call the troll cheese ball. My daughter says it looks like something a troll would roll out from under a bridge. Okay, so you think I'm insane, and the theme to the Twilight Zone is starting to run in your mind. My husband has a co-worker who says that she can tell I'm in this for the long haul. Well, she's absolutely right.
I am, what my son calls, a faux-cook. I prefer eyeballing measurements and hate making the same thing twice. Nice qualities for an artist perhaps, but not so much for a cook. Ah well, I remain undaunted and am going to figure out how to eat low sodium, low fat, low glycemic index, high fiber, vegan.
A vegetarian friend asked me this week what made me decide to go vegan. I tried low fat, low sodium, low glycemic, vegan for three weeks not knowing that I'd stick with it past that trial period. However, by week three I was feeling and looking so much better that I was sold. I continue to feel and look better, so why would I eat any other way?
