Vegan week...sort of
Monday, March 05, 2012
I made a goal to try being vegan one week this month and I decided to start today. However, after eating my cereal and whole grain bun, I read the ingredients more carefully and discovered they both had honey in them which is technically not vegan. My cereal also had whey as the last ingredient...oops. I guess I'm only "sort-of" going Vegan. I bought almond milk, rice milk, tofu, and egg replacer, but I decided not to spend the money on Earth Balance spread and Veganaise since I'm just doing a one-week trial and really have no intention of doing this forever. Therefore, I may have a bit of light margarine or mayo this week as well. This is what I'm committing to for one week:
No eating meat, fish, poultry, or eggs
No cow's milk, ice cream, yogurt, sour cream, or cheese
This is what I ate today:
Breakfast: Great Grains Cereal, Almond Milk
Lunch: 2 clementines, Veggie sandwich with with 1/3 avacado, green peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, and light mayo on 100% whole wheat bun; a few of my kids' french fries...oops.
Dinner: Veggie Stir-fry, Brown Rice, Coconut Curry sauce (cocunut milk, pineapple and seasonings), 1/2 of wheat bun, almond milk
Snack: Five pretzel twists (Umm...didn't plan on these. They were laying on the desk when I came to write on the computer and they ended up in my mouth).
If I get hungry, I may have some fruit before going to bed.
