I'd had a toothache for a few days before I finally got into the dentist on Tuesday. Apparently I have a tooth with a previous root canal that has become reinfected. I'm on antibiotics now which is helping to take away the pain and sensitivity to cold. The last few days of eating were the same thing over and over. Lots of soft stuff - bananas, avocados, and coconut milk yogurt.
Today I was finally ready for some non-soft food. I picked up a tempeh BLT at a cafe in the neighborhood. If you're not familiar, tempeh is a soy product, not unlike tofu, but with a more firm texture. It does not taste at all like bacon but it's good, in its way.
What I ate today:
• 1/2 cup raw cashews
• 1 kiwi
• green drink - kale, cucumber, spinach, apple, lemon (Grassroots)
• tempeh BLT - tempeh bacon, lettuce, tomato, bread, veganaise (Fiore Market Cafe)
• 1 banana
• lightly sauteed tatsoi greens, red chard, tomatoes, and garbanzos w/ olive oil
• 1 orange
