Back when I was in college, I was an avid dumpster diver. I even met some of my best friends while scavenging through trash cans (+Tyler Talks Trash) and had a first kiss with a boyfriend during a dumpster dive run. It helped that I worked at Trader Joes, a company notorious for its rich dumpsters, so I always knew when there would be a good score. But there is one downfall to relying on dumpster-dove food: You end up with a lot of the same stuff. Namely, you always have a LOT of old bananas and stale bread. I am pretty creative with food though, so I invented this great vegan banana french toast recipe.
