I'm going to pass on this challenge. I looked at the menu and the shopping list. It is too involved and too expensive for one person. I can do much better on my own.

Yes! I've been signed up since the current issue arrived on my doorstep.

I do drink a green smoothie for breakfast and lunch, so I'll continue to do that, but I am looking forward to getting myself on track for dinner, plus trying some new recipes to get some more variety in my life!

"It is NOT a vegan plan but many of the recipes are vegan. The vegetarian recipes are easily converted to vegan recipes with a few switches and swaps. "

Well, it is if you live somewhere that you can get vegan cheese, yoghurt, cream cheese, sour cream and meat! Unfortunately, that doesn't apply to a lot of people. I'm just happy that I can get soy milk and tofu.

I got a mailing from Vegetarian Times inviting me to join their challenge.

Go to Vegetarian Times to sign up.

It is NOT a vegan plan but many of the recipes are vegan. The vegetarian recipes are easily converted to vegan recipes with a few switches and swaps. For example, swap to the milk of your preference if the recipe calls for milk but some recipes already suggest hemp milk. As a vegetarian, I'm excited to see a 7 Day Meal Plan that is vegetarian! I'm happy to find new and tempting menu ideas. Hooray! I recently saw a meal plan that said just eat anything that flies or swims, or is green!!!! I am a vegetarian and the VT menu plan is vegetarian and the only swaps I need to make are swaps because I don't like a particular fruit or I prefer a different veggie. No Fish! No chicken! It is Vegetarian Times and the food is all vegetarian. Lots of it is vegan.

Quoting from the VT description of the challenge:
Starting January 15, join associate editor Tami Fertig in a 7-day challenge to fine-tune her sense of healthful food portions. The program includes a week-long meal plan, expert tips to control portion sizes, daily inspirational newsletters, a printable shopping list and serving savvy cheat sheet, and a chat where you can ask questions and share your experiences.

No, for three reasons
1. Too many non-vegan recipes
2. Not enough calories or protein in the menu for my needs
3. They're using american brands eg 'wasa crispbreads' that aren't available here

If you are, hope you're enjoying it!

I hadn't thought about it. I'm doing a 28 day elimination diet right now and tomorrow is day 12.
