Going Vegan for one meal a day!

Sunday, August 15, 2010

I decided to eat at least one vegan meal a day. It will probably be dinner. Currently, I am a semi vegetarian. I'm eating fruit and egg white with turkey sausage or soy sausage for breakfast with one slice of bread. I use the morning star breakfast products most of the time. At lunch I have a salad along with my meal that includes chicken or fish. I'm going to make dinner a vegan meal. That's no meat, diary or eggs. I eliminated red meat and pork years ago, but I still eat some diary, eggs, fish and chicken. Starting tomorrow, I am going to have a vegan meal at dinner. That means no poultry and fish too. I will need to step up my soy products and rice products like "rice dreams" a non-diary ice cream treat. I brought a rice noodle pad thai dish that has tofu in it. It looks good!! Yesterday, I brought the Rice Dream Pieces instead of my usual frozen vanilla yogurt. The rice treat was very good.
Okay, wish me luck! Perhaps adding a vegan meal a day will help with me reach my goal.

    All the best to you. True veganism is a little tricky. Good idea to check out the vegan teams for guidance. A few times a year I go TOTALLY vegan for a week as a colonic and purging. It feels so good! However, I can't quite wrap my mind around it as a permanent lifestyle. I admire those who do.

    Good Luck, it sounds like an interesting way of eating, but don't think I could do it, I don't like alot of the tofu, soy etc.

    As a newly converted vegan, I wish you much success!! If you are serious about this be sure to read labels. Some foods contain whey (which is a milk biproduct) and are avoided by vegans. Also, watch out for honey! Vegans don't eat it because it's made by an animal. There's several SP teams dedicated to vegans. You might get some good meal ideas from some of them.

Good luck!
