“TLT” Recipe & Am I A Hypocrite?

Hello loves…I hope everyone is having a great hump day! Mine has been fabulous..I had a great run/walk in the park and then spent the afternoon with my fave person in the world…homefries!

The other day my friend Jess wrote a post about labels (vegetarian etc.) and living up to them. When reading this post,  I started to wonder about my label…and am I being a hypocrite for consuming dairy. I didn’t give up meat because of the great things that it would do for my body but mostly because of animal rights…but am I any better? I came across this website when I was doing research on animal cruelty for dairy and it had some interesting points but yet I am still torn….What are you thoughts on this subject? And are you a vegetarian that does or does not consume dairy?

On my quest to a vegetarian lifestyle, I am always looking for ways to satisfy my animal cravings. For the past week or so, I have been craving a BLT sammie like crazy but refused to give into temptation. I searched on the internet for various recipes and pretty much combined a couple a came up with this…

TLT Recipe…

First a I combined Soy Sauce, Dijon Mustard, and Hickory Liquid Smoke (to taste) in a small bowl

I then added a serving of sliced Tofu and marinated it for about 1 hour.


After an hour, I heated up a small frying pan with oil and tossed in the Tofu…be careful when you place the tofu in the frying pan, it will start to pop.

When it’s done cooking, take them out and place on paper towel to soak up any excess oil.


I enjoyed mine on a toasted Arnold Thin with Lettuce, Tomato, and Mayo….
