Let’s Go Vegan: Day 2-3-4-5…

Oh my… Not easy at all, thanks for all the advice on how to avoid  Soy milk 🙂 I managed to find Chocolate Rice milk which is pretty good!
As Aretha would say” r.e.s.p.e.c.t” for all Vegans! It seems like a full time job to find dishes that don’t include animal products and keeping you well-nourished.
Here are some highlights about the past Vegan days:

Friday: My father in law came for dinner straight after work so I prepared Grilled Steak, Salad with fresh Herbs and Fries. Drooled over the grilled Steak…

Saturday: Working in the garden the whole afternoon (trimming trees, chopping up wood) for lunch we had potatoes,onions and mushrooms. In the evening we had a Birthday party… Champagne and little Sandwiches covered with tuna,salmon, meat, eggs,Birthday cake… I had Champagne and Olives and regretted the Champagne the next day. Overcompensated the famine with Champagne 😉

Sunday : I CHEATED, for a Birthday present I proposed to give a friend 4 cooking lessons and Sunday evening was the first lesson. Steamed vegetables with potatoes, fish and a delicious fish/white wine sauce. The sauce was to much of a temptation…

Monday: Broccoli soup with Bread and a White Bean Dip (which was utterly disgusting…)

Which leaves us to today:

My beloved Sushi without fish!
Maki with Nashi Pear, Carrot, Avocado, Cucumber etc.
An Udon Noodle salad with fresh vegetables, sesame oil and Sweet chili sauce.

Although I cheated on Sunday, I was very Vegan-well behaved for the rest of the days but it’s tough, this experiment makes me realize how many animal products we eat everyday, even the Veggie Burgers contain eggs and other animal products.

2 days to go…

  1. I’m glad to hear you found some chocolate rice milk. I think that you’re doing good so far, your vegetable nori rolls and udon salad look full of good flavours! I think I would’ve enjoyed the champagne and olives a lot too. 🙂

    One thing I’ve learned which makes preparing and cooking vegan food easier, for me, is by doing lots of Indian cooking (with vegetable ghee), particularly Kerala region style. There’s a curry dish adapted from white pumpkin to using cucumber that even my husband enjoys, and he is very much a carnivore. Look forward to hearing about the next two days!
