"Eating is NOT a competitive sport!"
After I blurted it out I was struck how poignant that sentiment actually is. Over-eaters are in competition with their better judgement. Anorexics are in competition with their scale. Of course there are the infamous, revolting how-many-hotdogs-can-you-eat type of competitions.
And then... often there are the vegan/vegetarians whom self-righteously compete against the the rest of the world to eat with perfect compassion. Let's advance our passionate cause with just the compassion part - for humans first :-)
On a lighter note - a great, QUICK AND EASY, no cook, summer recipe!! I've been eating it for breakfast for an energizing, alkalizing happy jolt. Of course for other meals the addition of tortilla chips + vegan sour cream & cilantro is spectacular.
3 lg. Tomatoes
1 Green Pepper
1 clove Garlic, chopped
12 C. Tomato Juice
½ C. White Wine Vinegar
¼ C. Lemon Juice
1 T. Mustard
Tabasco to taste
Garnish: Cilantro and/or vegan sour cream
Wash, peel and chop tomatoes & cucumber. Wash, seed and chop the pepper and place
all in a salad bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well and serve cold w/ the chopped
cilantro on top.
