Making up for missed pies

It's nice to be back home and in my kitchen


Whole wheat dough, tomato, onion, onion chive, serrano, carrots, garlic, pineapple and barbecue sauce

No ripe avocados :(

I added some sprouts and some raw garlic

Camera battery dieing made for a strange effect on this pic

This was the first time I added the barbcue sauce after most of the topping.  I tried to drizzle it randomly over the pizza so that every bite of the pizza would not taste the same, also by putting it on last I think it caramelized better in the oven and this is how I will do it from now on.

Round 2

Same ingredients with the addition of red beans and more barbecue sauce than before

Eat me

Gringo vegan in Mexico

I recently spent a couple weeks in Mexico for a race.  I wasn't quite sure what effects this would have on my diet.  I was prepared to eat meat if need be but lucky for me I randomly undertook this journey with 5 other vegans who really made it easy for me.

The first place we stopped for food in Mexico was a quesadilla restaurant. they had almost no food not cooked in lard

First meal grilled chilies with tortillas. Cost 8 pesos

Beans rice Vegan enchilada


Soy tostada 

Komquats growing right outside my hotel

This the what I ate 90% of the time.  Avocado jalapeƱo onion tomato and tortilla

My buddies down the road camped at a place with a full garden I was able to do a little grazing at


They were camping and had access to a full a kitchen (those lucky bastards)  this is where I want to stay next year

Fresh raw beets

Best grapefruit ever

After hiking 9miles of the race course we reached Los Olios

All the grapefruit you can eat.  
I had 3 my buddy Jamil had 9
Somehow I managed to keep my belly full the whole trip.  Almost every   I at a lot of bland beans at least 100 corn tortilla's and some really good local yellow potatoes at Mama Tita's restaurant.  I don't think I lost any weight but I definitely didn't gain any. 

 The bulk of my calories care  from usual suspects

Traditional Mexi-Vegan Lunch
I could of ate this for every meal 

Beer and Avocado on a 2 to 1 ratio

I really should be working on my race recap blog post  So this post shall abruptly end now
