September 30, 2005

No vegetables in today's lunchbox. Scooby has 4 mini-veggie pig'n'blankets. These are two smartdogs cut in half and baked in dough. She got to wrap them and put them in the oven herself. She has a peach o'soy yoghurt and a box of raisins. And since there was about 2 small brownies left she gets another brownie for tomorrow.. they are pretty awesome brownies I can't blame her for wanting another. To drink she is getting another Minute-maid apple-grape juice which is her favourite beverage next to chocolate soy milk (which I tend to limit to breakfast odd I know).

    At the risk of sounding dumb - what exactly is VEGAN? How does it differ from Vegitarian?

    Vegetarians avoiding eating actual animals. Vegans avoid eating animal products including milk, cheese, eggs, vitamin d3 (sheep sweat) and other vitamins or animal derived hormonal drugs like premarin (which is made from horse pee) etc.

    Poor girl, IMO cold veggie dogs are horrible. But maybe they have microwaves at her school?

    oh no the kids aren't allowed to use the microwaves at school. There is nothing better than warm veggie dogs baked in bread fresh out of the oven - but she likes them just find after they've been refrigerated overnight. I pretty only fix her what she likes for lunch. I don't want her not eating because she doesn't want what she is given. When I was in high school the vegetarian option was a salad. And prior to high school there was no vegetarian option at all. If I didn't have a lunch packed (usually pb&j) then all I got to eat were sides. Its just not enough food for a little kid.
