Vegan MoFo Day 8: Goodbye Porpoise Spit!

Soooo… well I’m feeling ever so glum today with the horrible election result.  This is pretty much today’s face:

I was really tempted to fall back to my comfort food of cornflakes sprinkled with raw sugar and chocolate powder and covered in scalding hot soy milk but that would have made for a boring MoFo post.  And I KNOW I would have sat there staring at the milk going around and around in the microwave like that brilliant scene in Muriel’s Wedding where the mum makes the tea in the microwave.  It was that kind of day.  Anyway, I got the leftover macadamia cream out of the fridge, whizzed it up with some dates and a little maple syrup to sweeten it and plopped it on top of a giant nectarine.  I love raw nut creams:

Rather summer-holiday, don’t you think?  I had to avoid listening to news cos it ruined my tropical mood and made me look like this:

But to keep with the theme of imagining I’m off on Hibiscus Island, faaaar away from the awful reality of our new prime minister, I made a juice from pineapple, strawberries, orange and fresh basil.  Then I decided to make it alcoholic and whiz it up with ice.  Then realised I didn’t know which of Husband’s bottles of alcohol are vegan.  He’s the drinks man, I rarely drink alcohol so I have never really bothered making a list.  So I just put the juice in a fancy glass and had it plain and… healthy:

I have some busy days this week and not really sure how I’ll go MoFo-wise but so far I’m pleased that I’m having far more healthy foods than I have in the past few months.  I do enjoy eating raw but not when it’s cold.  I don’t think I’m ready to give up scalding hot cornflakes just yet.
