Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

This omelette is vegan


 

The first time I tried Justegg I wondered what all the hype was about. Later I found out it if it is close to the expiry date it doesn’t work the same as a fresh batch. Justegg is a vegan egg substitute that is mostly made from mung beans and the most popular vegan egg substitute in North America. It is pretty easy to make a homemade version if you don’t want to use a commercial product. I moved and have been having trouble sourcing ingredients but I will make it in the future. Justegg is available at a few stores in my area

I have tried Justegg a few more times and it was much better. It is easier to get fresher bottles where I live now. The instructions say to scramble it just like you are making scrambled eggs. I have tried to make an omelette with it in the past it didn’t work the eggs would just get scrambled. 

I have only been vegan for about a year and I am very experienced in making egg omelettes. I even used to work on a brunch as the omelette maker. I realized that when I make omelettes I don’t just crack the egg in a pan which is the equivalent of squeezing Justegg from the bottle to the pan. I always put the egg in a bowl with a little water, spices, and mix it with a fork. 

This worked so much better. It is pretty close to cooking an actual omelette. The difference is I wasn’t able to flip it but it still turned out really well. 

Vegan cheese has also come a long way. I had a block of vegan ilchester cheese that said it was great for melting. The block cost $9 which seems expensive but it is comparable with buying a higher quality dairy cheese. I cut it into pieces put a little water in the pan and covered until the cheese melted. If I had taken the time to grate the cheese it would have looked perfect but it was still great and melted. I still remember what omelettes taste like and the only difference between this an egg omelette is this is fluffier if you had it a restaurant you would wonder what the chef’s secret ingredient is. It is so good please let me know if you try it. You can find me on Instagram @livingottawalocal.
