Vegan 100

Hannah, from Bittersweet, recently posted a list of 100 things every vegan should try (adapted from The Omnivore's Hundred).

This list includes things that are vegan or easily veganized, but it includes a lot of packaged products and soy. I'm going to post a green-non-processed Vegan 100 (more true to the original sentiment of the original list) .

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

I thought I knew quite a lot of foods, but in the second one... so many I don't know!

maybelle's mom said...

wow, you really did well on both lists. and thanks for playing along. I will look at your list right now.

jennconspiracy said...

sanja, the second one is a lot of Asian, Indian and African stuff, too -- depends on the markets near you!

Maybelle's Mom - thanks! It has been really fun. I am reluctant to admit that I had 70 of the items on the original Omnivore's List (hey, I lived in the Midwest & South with an hunter for 7 years) -- and I think I could actually perform really highly on any such list if they included a lot of wild game animals.
