Day one of #7dayvegan was a success – no cheese, no milk chocolate, no whey protein, no yogurt, no eggs… That feels like a whole lot of “no.”
When I consider what I hope this week looks like for me, I want to be sure that it’s not just about getting rid of things from my diet. I know that I do have ascetic tendencies, but I also know that if this vegan thing (is that what we call it?) is just about self-sacrifice, it certainly won’t last longer than 7 days. I understand that saying “no” to some foods that I love is simply part of what this has to be, but I’d like to also use this week to explore a few things that I might want to add to my diet.What are the delicious vegan meals, snacks, and deserts that I have never considered? I think I’d like to try a least a handful of new things this week. I found a blog called Oh She Glows with a ton of delicious looking vegan recipes. I’ll have to pick up a few ingredients but I think I’ll try some Chocolate Chia Pudding tonight.
