We eat A LOT of tomatoes in this house, and by that I mean that tomatoes pretty much have their own column on the monthly budget. But why not? They're packed with Lycopene, an awesome anti-oxidant that is well known for its cancer fighting and free radical flushing abilities. There's so much of the stuff that it's actually what makes tomatoes red. The good news is that its levels actually increase during processing. So if you prefer tomatoes crushed or juiced or pickled or any other way they are sold, you still get a big dose of the good stuff.
They're also just so versatile. The simple fact that you could have tomatoes 5 days a week, and never the same way twice just keeps it so fresh. (Hey Look, a pun). Personally I could just eat them on their own, with a little salt and pepper. But Jenn loves it when I actually use them in a proper dish, so here's a quick, easy (and cheap) one I make a fair bit, and never get complaints. It's almost raw and so it's very basic for those nights you want to eat healthy, but don't have much time.

To celebrate that, I'm gonna try hard to be less of a "Junk Vegan" and create some new, healthy and exciting meals for the month. Any success I have in that mission will of course be blogged.
So basically, no matter where you are I'm pretty sure that any Veg Groups in your area or capital will be holding some form of event this month. Get out there! Meet some new friends, eat some new food and have fun! This is Our day/month!
Thanks for reading!
Embarrassingly enough, last month in Melbourne I ate 7 of their burgers in a day, this is not JUST a display of my gluttony but an honest testament to how much I love their stuff.
The patties are perfect for our Vegan tastebuds. The buns are great.. Their sauces are infallible. And all the healthy stuff they throw on seems like they've just picked it from a garden in the kitchen.
I'm highlighting LOTF today for sydneysiders who haven't had the pleasure.. FINALLY we have not one but THREE opening in NSW in the near future (Newtown, King's Cross and Sydney CBD).. And to me personally that is a very exciting thought.. (although my wallet will lose weight and my belt will gain some new holes.)
A lot of this post obviously sounds like a paid advertisement, but it's not.. I just really appreciate the work they do, and I love supporting stores that cater to our needs. Anyway, just wanted to show some love to the Lord.
