Carlos is napping and I should be working...

...but instead I think I'll play this little game that Hannah at bittersweet came up with. :-)

The Vegan's Hundred

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 can't figure out how to cross words out in Bloglines so I'll make notes in blue instead.

You do strike through by putting the word "del" in angle brackets -- just like you would "strong" or "i" (for italics) -- make sure you close it or you'll end up with strike through on everything else, too!

My list is up but I take exception to the addition of highly processed and packaged foods like soy whipped cream and fake meats, so I've made a "crunchy vegan 100" version of the list, reinstating some items from the original -- like rose harissa, ZOMG! the yum!
