Vegan MoFo Day 31 Happy Halloween!

It's a beautiful day here in NYC, and I clearly don't get enough exercise. So tonight I decided to walk from work on Wall St. to Grand Central on 42nd St. If I wasn't hungry, I would have made it the whole way. Instead I stopped in the Whole Foods in Union Square to grab a Larabar, but ended up buying a shopping bag full of groceries. I needed veganaise and nutritional yeast anyway and I wanted to try the Vega stuff since I just read the Thrive Diet by the vegan triathlete.
So with my now heavy bag of groceries, I took the subway the remaining 28 blocks. Then in Grand Central I remember I need olive oil, too, so I went O & Co (pricey, but awesome) and got a nice grassy bottle of olive oil and some balsamic vinegar.

All in all not a bad decision, but my adventure emphasizes 2 things. I need to exercise more(I pay for a gym) and I really need to spend less money on groceries since I have a pantry full of things to eat.

So I'm making November, the month of the pantry. Let's see how long I can make it without going to the grocery store.

Good goal! I definitely need to limit my trips to the grocery store as well. Good luck!

Great idea! I'll be interested to see how this goes!

Cool idea! I may have to try the same thing. Assuming I can find a million ways to cook black beans; I don't remember starting to hoard them, but somehow I seem have a full shelf of them...

i have done the same thing before with the pantry, but you still have to go to the store for your fresh produce.

I am looking forward to seeing what you create with food that you have on hand.

I've been doing the pantry thing for a few weeks now - ignoring fresh veggies that is. It's amazing how many potential meals I already have in there!
Good MoFo'ing by the way.
