Tacos & Sandwiches & Pizza!

New Wing Order –  a new Memphis food truck specializing in hot wings — also offers something for vegans! Yay! They have Fried Avocado Tacos with vegan sriracha aioli and pineapple slaw, and they are to die for. They're even marked VEGAN on the menu, which I think is super-rad because it's really nice that they offer something for everyone. I was invited to their VIP truck opening last Friday night at Memphis Made Brewing Co., so I got a couple tacos (and washed down with Memphis Made Huggy Bear Brown Ale).

I have a busy week ahead, so I brought my lunch to work instead of heading home for lunch (I live about 5 minutes from my office, so I typically lunch at home). I had planned to work through lunch and nibble at my desk, but it was just too nice of a day for that.

So I took a quick break outside and read Rich Roll's Finding Ultra while I enjoyed a Mustard Baked Tofu Sandwich (with Trader Joe's baked tofu, sauteed spinach & shallots, sliced tomato, and maple-dijon mustard) from The Vegan Reset Cookbook, along with a side of the BEST EVER CHIPS. These Vegan Cheddar & Sour Cream Chips are made by Vegan Dude Foods, and they taste just like the sour cream & cheddar chips of my youth. My dad ordered these from Vegan Essentials. So good! Full review (with more flavors) coming soon.

My life hasn't been all fried food and chips though. I did have this Mint To Be Green Smoothie from I Love Juice Bar at Crosstown Concourse one day last week before an evening yoga class. Mint, pineapple, mango, coconut milk, and apple juice. Yum!

Here's a Saturday morning ramen bowl! With Soy Curls, peas, carrots, and corn. The noodles are Koyo Tofu Miso. LOVE!

Those tacos look exactly how I always want my tacos to look but never do!!
That tofu sandwich sounds delicious. I used to love tofu sanwiches with some lettuce and sprouts!!

OMG I need to get soy curls for ramen deliciousness! I am making it a goal to up my ramen game this fall and winter. Lunch outside sounds so nice and it looked amazing!

Fried avocado is the epitome of avocado deliciousness! That crunchy plus creamy combo is seriously magical.
Glad you took advantage of the nice day to sit outside a while, sunshine always improves my mood. That sandwich sounds great! I love the baked tofu from TJs.
How is your foot doing lately?

Such a yummy spread. I hope those Vegan Dude's chips get stocked at V Marks the Shop *crosses fingers* I hate ordering things online sadly.
