Fact: Last night I went to Publix after a 4+ hour car ride

Fact: My only meal of the day before Publix was brunch 6 hrs prior and a handful or two of plantain chips

Fact: You should never go to the store hungry

Fact: My cart was full of random food items I would have otherwise avoided because of my growling stomach

Fact: If it hadn’t have been for that starving mindset I would not have discovered how awesome Bacon Tempeh is


Fact: Bacon Tempeh makes a mean sandwich


Fact: B(T)LT = Bacon (Tempeh), Lettuce, and Tomato


Fact: I added swiss cheese and hummus to the B(T)LT to give it a little more ‘oomph’


Fact: Maddie love carrots as much as I do


Fact: A sandwich just isn’t the same without a pickle to go with it.

I have yet to try tempeh. Some of the meatless products have the weirdest texture to them. One of these days, I’ll work up the courage to try it though! I am craving a pickle now haha.

Honestly that seems a little scary to me, but I think bacon is one of those foods you just have to go for 100%. Either real bacon or no bacon. Mmm.. bacon….

6 Holly @ The Runny Egg May 16, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Good to know that stuff tastes good, but I don’t think anything can take the place of bacon on a BLT!

What’s in that bacon tempeh exactly? I always find fake meat to be a bit questionable.

8 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife May 16, 2011 at 3:53 pm

mmm I would love to try some Tempeh sometime soon!

I <3 pickles!! SO the way to go with a sandwich πŸ™‚

Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

I love tempeh – I only found it being sold in shops near me a few years ago and since then I’ve been hooked.

I wish I could come to the HLS but I just don’t have the money for flights :(. Maybe one day in the future!

I completely agree that going to the grocery store hungry is not a good idea. All kinds of wild and crazy things are bound to happen. Looks like you did okay overall though.

12 Rachel @ The Perseverance Diaries May 16, 2011 at 5:02 pm

Bacon tempeh rocks my world!

I was a bacon obsessed freak turned vegan so this stuff makes me happy.

I recently tried tempeh for the first time. I marinated it in a soy and maple marinade and grilled to perfection. It was fabulous, and now I must try tempeh bacon!

15 Christine May 16, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Brace yourself- I have no clue what tempeh is! I’m not a bacon fan, and I hate cooking it. Does this taste the same? Easier to cook?

Yes grocery shopping hungry is a dangerous affair when one is hungry! Yesterday, I was really hungry before I went grocery shopping so I decided I just HAD to get some fro yo to stop the cravings. Smart right?

And I agree, a sandwich isn’t the same without the ol’ pickle!

Dandelion, where I work, has a Fakin’ Lettuce and Tomato that’s similar and delicious! It’s a smoky marinade, too.

AND I hate when I grocery shop hungry!! I have to seriously consider everything that’s in my cart before committing to the check out line and make sure I’m not just shopping with my eyes!

haha, my jack russel used to LOVE carrots… we actually think he started turning orange from feeding him too many!

George (my daschund) LOVES carrots. He gets carrots instead of “regular” treats and the occasional ice cube if we’re getting really crazy…..
