I am so glad I did this challenge! We're one week out of it, just a bit over. Last week was pretty hectic, and I definitely didn't stick with being meatless the first week of April, partially because we needed to use up eggs and tuna that were in the house. Now, we're back at it.
I loved the challenge. It reminded me how difficult it can be to be vegan, but also how easy in many ways. There was one day that we went out for sushi and I had some tuna sushi, and some veggie rolls, and the flavors that really stood out were in the veggie rolls. I thought that change in my taste buds was really interesting.
I probably won't continue to be strictly 'vegan', simply because sometimes I find myself in really difficult food situations and its more important for me to keep my blood sugar level than to be strict with what I'm eating, but I'm really enjoying the new changes. The DH seems to be happy, too!
Recently I purchased one of Happy Herbivore's weekly meal plans and am really liking it. Tonight we had black bean burgers, baby carrots, and a small salad. Tomorrow morning we'll have blueberry crisp for breakfast, and mock tuna wraps for lunch, and some veggie pad thai for dinner. Yum! Oh, and there's vegan chili in the crock pot :D
I know now that I know nothing.
