I did it

Saturday, June 26, 2010

I did it when we were shopping earlier my wife got some tuna fish, when at the check out I told here don't fix it for me. she said not eating fish now, I left it at that because I didn't want to get into it in the store. but that commits me to eat as vegan as possible. I won't be able to be 100% but I will do my best

    Hi Mike, here's a link to a vegan "tuna" salad you can have in a sandwich or on a plate. You might like it! I Googled and found many more such recipes. I love chickpeas!
Here's the one I found at
h-412774 :
Ingredients:Serves: 4 -6 ,
Servings: 3
2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 carrots, finely chopped
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1/2 cup egg-free mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
salt and pepper

Directions:Prep Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 5 mins
1. After you drain and rinse the chickpeas, place them in a food processor and pulse 10-15 times until you have a flaky mixture.
2. Mix the chickpeas with the rest of the ingredients and enjoy

    As a person who has committed to adopting a vegan lifestyle and has a husband who is a meat eater and all things of the Standard American Diet, I know exactly how it is!

Good for you, sticking to your own convictions and holding strong!

    Hi thanks for the encouragement, yes even though I am not doing flesh any more, I will eat like french toast or PANCAKES WHEN OUT THAT HAVE EGGS IN THEM or butter. I also need to cut down on fat, sar. fat level is good. One thing at a time. STARSFORME my craving and it is basic junk is for a bologna sandwich or even spam, go figure I am not even craving shrimp that I love.

    Take a look at my Nutrition Tracker. I made the break from meat and get an incredible amount of protein.

Congrats on making the break, albeit a little apprehensively.

    That's fantastic! Tuna was really hard for me to give up! I still crave it sometimes.
