Road Tripping, Day 2: A No Drive Day

The plan for today was to hang out with my uncle and aunt’s in Vernal, Utah and we did just that! 

My aunt had asked months ago about food for us and we told her not to worry because we would take care of ourselves. She didn’t like that answer and had called my mom up for some ideas.

We started the morning off with cereal and almond milk. It was a cereal I never bought before and really liked!Our first adventure was just outside Vernal at the Dinosaur National Monument where we got to check out fossils, hike, and look for petroglyphs. The weather was perfect and the area was beautiful! We then went home for lunch and enjoyed some Tofurky sandwiches.

After lunch Anzia learned how to ride a quad and fed some goats alfalfa that live next door.​

My aunt had done a lot of reading and found a vegan recipe she wanted to try for dinner, Tofu Cashew Stirfry. We made a few modifications, including adding the left over Tofurky chicken-less strips and it came out good. It was both her and my uncles first time trying tofu.Anzia then began playing around on the yard art. Four acres is a lot of land for a kid to explore.

For desert my aunt made an amazing vegan zucchini pie, which tasted just like apple pie. I will be sharing the recipe in the next few days. It uses those big zucchini that you get in your garden at the end of the season.Today was a lot of fun and another successful eating day! It was so cool of my aunt to take the time to learn about our diet. Her trip to the grocery store took two hours. She said she has never spent so much time reading labels.

    I was just telling someone about Zucchini Pie (I’ve always called it Mock Apple Pie) and they had never heard of it. I’m looking forward to the recipe.

    And I love these positive series of posts on the ease of being vegan.
