today i spontaneously went to vienna, because i
wanted had to go to a shop i recently spotted: “maran”.
it’s a huge bio-market, one of the leading providers of biological food in austria, as i just learned, and offers a whole lot of vegetarian/vegan food. you can google it and go to their homepage if you wish to learn more about it, but i needed to see this place with my own eyes.
besides the fact you can also buy meat and dairy-products at this store, it’s close to paradise for veggies!
“what? didn’t the title say this post would be about my fav. kind of shopping?”
is that girl crazy?
well, i know it’s weird, especially for a girl, but i never was a fan of those endless-seeming shopping-trips..
it always kinda annoys me, the only fun-shopping i can think of when talking about clothes is when i shop for some dress i need for the stage. btw, “Forever21” is my favourite when it comes to stage-outfits!
but, i’m afraid, i don’t really like to run from store to store just “for fun”..oh, and i HATE shoe-shopping!
i warned you, i’m pretty weird!😉
but when it comes to buying new, exotic food, i’m totally in!
let’s see what went into my non-plastic shopping bag today..
noooow we’re talking!🙂
– a huge glass of applesauce (unsweetened!)
– fairtrade cocoa powder (dark & unsweetened…yum!)
– 2 different kinds of cookies
(my bf happened to love them, when he tried them!🙂 i bought splet-choc. & wheat-vanilla flavoured ones)
– a packet agar-agar
– a glass of peanutbutter, crunchy
– a glass of sugarcane-molasse-syrup
– margarine, for baking
– 2 packs of tofu, 1 basil- & 1 chilli-flavoured
– a batch of dried figs (yes, they’re not on the photo..i already ate them. i’m crazy for this stuff! )
(sorry for the bad photo-quality..)
i carried all those things back home in my just bought linen-bag. i’m happy to have it, and happy to help our planet with this simple and cheap alternative to plastic bags. (just think of how often you get a plastic-bag in a shop, carry home your things and then rarely use it again..while you keep getting new plastic bags all the time. it’s absurd!)
all my new products leave me with one question: “what am i going to do with them?”
you need to know, i don’t always eat sweet things..
it’s true, if i had to choose, i’d take some vegan treat over a bagle..but of course i also eat savoury stuff.
one clean proof would be this:
i made this some time ago, it’s a sort of spicy veggie-champignon-pan, topped with some seeds.
i plan to more and more include my non-dessert meals into this blog, but, just so you have an idea, my preferred foods are beans, lentils, all kind of veggies, especially broccoli, mushrooms, potatoes, amaranth, quinoa, kamut, spelt, rice and a whoooole lot of spices!😉
i don’t really eat tofu often, but once in a while, i really enjoy it.
hmm, i somehow changed the subject..did you recognise?;)
i initially was going to tell you what i will be up next to:
– some sort of “lentil-curry”
– “roasted tofu-experiment with veggies”
– “bean butter”
– “spicy bean & vinegar – duet”
– i’ll try Katie’s “banana butter”
aaaaand there are of course be some new dessert/breakfast creations coming up!
(i dream of my own vegan version of the famous “OREO cookies“..)
so, stay on the train!
oh my gosh, i totally love this healthy, delicious, cruelty-free, affordable and creative vegan diet!😀
(i’m really processing here! i just ordered a pizza sans cheese, so it was tomatosauce, mushrooms & corn..it tasted fabulous! and yesterday i was at a kind of family feast: we grilled, and i got wonderful grilled veggies and huge champignons, so i, once again was all vegan! i’s hard when it comes to other people’s rude comments, but i’m really really proud. proud and happy.)
read me soon!
