Awakening to lightening striking bright and quaking loud thunder, creates a great way to start the day. Happy November from the Sonoran desert, where we do not need to save the daylight. The daylight reigns supreme in Arizona.

A morning bringing ultimate motivation brings a deliciously crafted Ⓥegan Sandwich. Field Roast Patties and Eggless Salad were utilized in this concept. The Patties were panfried and then set aside. Peppers were then panfried. Large Tortillas were warmed before being stuffed.

Spinach, Pico de Gallo, Avocado, Eggless Salad, the Patties and Peppers were stuffed into the Tortilla before lightly toasting in the oven. Sliced in half and tossed in a basket, what an amazing fuel to ride the rain puddles away with the sun over my shoulder.

Daiya Cream was heated and utilized from another concept. Sauerkraut and Caramelized Onions complimented this beefless, Beefy sandwich.

Earth Balance lathered Whole Wheat Bread were pan-fried on one side, lightly, before being constructed with the slightly toasted sides platforming the amazing ingredients included with this sandwich.

Daiya Grilled Portabella Ⓥeggie Sandwich

Awesomely Ⓥegan, this sandwich is ‘beefy’, ‘meaty’ and just damn delicious. Grilled Portabella strips, grilled Onion and a grilled Bun create a solid foundation for roasted Radish slices, roasted Daiya, raw Cucumber and Tomato slices.

German Beer Mustard Recipe

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_799e

Homemade German Beer Mustard and Vegenaise were hidden, but essential building blocks to this masterpiece’s construction. Complimenting its texture and flavorful properties even more, is a giant pinch of Alfalfa Sprouts. Seasonings used: Sea Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Garlic Powder and Dill Weed.

Ⓥ Cleanwich Ⓥ

Ⓥegan sandwiches are my favorite. They are usually quick, easy and delicious. The bigger the sandwich, the better. The better the sandwich, the messier the sandwich. Let’s clean things up just a bit. And with the ingredients being so clean, how about a sandwich that doesn’t involve a few napkins.

Thrice Baked Potatoes were prepared on the side. Simple and delicious.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_43adUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_432fUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_43b3

A prior Rice concoction was utilized. I did not write down the ingredients. Along with the rice concoction, Carrots, Lightlife ‘sausage’ and ‘beef’, chopped Daiya and Instant Mashed potatoes were mended together and cooked in an oil-less copper skillet.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_43a9UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_43bbUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_43aa

The condiment-wich was a mixture of Iceberg Lettuce, Vegenaise, Liquid Smoke, Garlic and chopped Spinach, Tomato, Onion & Avocado. Bigger Tortillas were warmed and stuffed with the mixed veggies and then folded shut. Gluten-free and Ⓥegan waffles were baked with Daiya and top. Dill Weed and Chipotle powder were lightly sprinkled on top before combining the waffles and condiments into sandwich form.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_429fUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_43ae

The Bun was spread (top and bottom insides) with Earth Balance Coconut Spread and Grilled face down. The Cleanwich was combined and cut in half to be plated with the Thrice Baked Potatoes and then destroyed, cleanly.

Happy Sunday!

Countdown to Pi Dai (2)

daiya pi burgi

I have a new theory. Studies have shown, in a sense, the same theory with sunlight. People are generally much happier when they experience more sun. People who do not experience a surplus of sunlight are generally not as happy as to those showered in vastly radiant sunshine. Recently, I jumped on the “artificial daylight” bandwagon with LED lightbulbs. They are extremely bright with use of less energy. They are daylight Light-Emitting Diodes that generally make me happier anytime I need artificial lighting to see than my old standard power-sucking light bulbs. Maybe it’s the brighter, cleaner artificial light that makes me happier. Maybe it’s the economical perks that make me happier. Maybe it’s the combination of the many pros without a single con. LEDs are Smart. LEDs are beyond electricity.

Beast Burger

This concept is basically a modular (home) sandwich. Separate sandwiches are constructed before combining into one.

img_7011img_7013

Daiya ‘cheese’ lover Pizza is baked and sliced into four sandwich sized pieces. Whole Wheat Bread is grilled on both sides and set aside for a few minutes. The daiya pi wiches were constructed with Daiya slices under the Pizza on the grilled Bread. The sandwiches were lathering with Earth Balance Coconut Spread to be set aside after grilling both sides.

Onion Bagels smothered with Earth Balance Coconut Oil were grilled on the flats (insides.) A Beyond Meat Beast Burger was baked before baking the patty in Garlic Chipotle Molasses which consists of Garlic Sauce (boiled Potato, Cashew and Onion blended down with Garlic, Veggie Broth, Crushed Red Pepper, SeaSalt, Pepper, Paprika, Sugar, Garlic P, Parsley and Instant Mashed Potatoes to help find consistency.), Chipotle Sauce, Chipotle P, Molasses, Paprika, Balsamic Vinegar, Sugar, SeaSalt, Cumin and Mustard.

The grilled Onion Bagels were generously smeared with Tofutti Herbs & Chives Better Than Cream Cheese. The two halves were constructed with Daiya slices melted on top. A Beast Burger was between the two halves when they folded together, smartly pointing the Daiya Pi face up and infusing non dairy with meatless protein greatness. A plant based massacre has unfolded with delicious Craft Beers.

Happy February!

I used to think and almost judge February for its unique spelling and constantly wonder why January isn’t spelt very similarly. Janruary? I’ve figured out that there is nothing wrong with one being different than the other. Excepting things that aren’t normal are a way of life and should be the way of the world. Cheers!

Bulls on Parade

I went to Dixon, IL, yesterday, for a gravel (bicycle) ride which was more of multi-surface ride with a mixture of various levels of gravel and road. It was a great ride, just a shitty day. The wind was windy and cold. The sun was hidden and also cold. I rode 118.7 km (73.76 miles) which did complete Strava’s May Gran Fondo challenge.

I’ve blogged in the past about my difficulties with an athletic watch manufacturer and decided to go the Forerunner route, paying extra money for a Garmin Forerunner 235. It’s pretty sweet. I can track my rides as it is a Garmin. I can track runs, if I ever did run. I do not run. This watch monitors my heart rate and also my sleep.

Last June, I attempted to track exactly what I did that entire month and put it into a blog that no one read.

It is and was extremely hard to monitor sleep manually. Next month will be a different story. Technology is our friend, but it is up to us how close of a friend it will be. But, first June has to get here. And June has to conclude to document an entire month of data and lifestyle.

Yesterday, on this gravel ride, I rode new roads, I drank a couple of new beers, met new people with some of the same passions and I RODE WITH A BULL. I also ate out at a deli, deliciously, confidently Ⓥeganly. The day sums up this way. You take an excellent cut of Bike Ride layered generously, Vegetable genocide of all sorts, being outside in nature with animals and life, garnished with an array of Good Beers adding character and flavor – STUFFED between two pieces of Good Bread. Consumption of a sandwich of this magnitude is VEGGHEAD BEERCYCLIST. And this is the good life.

Happy Sunday!
