Happy Birthday, Brother

Wednesday, April 08, 2020

Today is my brother's birthday. He's 58 today.

I promised a restaurant/food review. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I ate it anyway. There was way too much, but I ate it anyway. Too much protein, not enough veg. The breakfast burrito was a whole grain tortilla, but the filling was tofu scramble with very little veg in and seitan shwarma with far too much turmeric. I would have preferred half as much of those and fill the burrito up with steamed veggies.

Lunch was more of the seitan shwarma with some green peppers to make it look like an Italian beef on a whole wheat roll and the order form required me to order fries that I didn't want. When the order arrived, I put the fries in the fridge and the sandwich in separately and when lunchtime came around, I put the sandwich in the microwave to warm it up and the fries in my air-fryer. I ended up eating only half the sandwich for lunch and the other half for dinner.

I don't know if I will order from them again or not - I need to take a closer look at the menu since what I got was not WFPB, just vegan. It was tasty, but the scale says I did not have a good day of eating.

    Have you looked at the barn2door fresh freggie ordering system? Some of my neighbors posted pics and it looks amazing! Obviously you have to cook it all yourself, but the quality was impressive.

    If you don’t feel satisfied, why to order again?
    Try other restaurant and help other local business! emoticon

    Others have said it, but for good cooked veggies and whole foods, home cooked is best. But that's easier for me to say and do now that I'm retired. When you're working, you just don't have the time or energy for all the washing, chopping, etc. Maybe you can find a better take-out place. emoticon

    I don't think I would order again.

    Doesn't sound like a place to go back to, too bad. Nothing beats home cooked when it comes to WFPB.

    Happy birthday to your brother!!!

    I am sorry you didn't like the food. I tend to think that nothing beats homemade, though I know nothing about this kind of food. I was a vegetarian in high school and wasn't good at it and ended up in the hospital with vitamin deficiencies and had to take vitamin K shots for years after. Steamed veggies sound good and I eat tons of veggies including peppers almost very day . I don't know what seitan shwarma is. I'm not into sandwiches since I am gluten free. It sounds like you learned a lot.
