Last week, I decided to take the 30-day vegan challenge and I’m pleased to say that the first week has been really fun.
I originally planned to do a bit of a food diary but I completely forgot, so instead I’ll give you a little overview of how the first week has been.
My biggest weakness is cheese, but to my amazement I haven’t craved it or felt like I was missing out. I’m so impressed with this because I definitely ate way too much cheese before.
In general, I haven’t found a vegan diet to be very restrictive. The only time it has felt a little restrictive is when I went to Costa Coffee to meet my friend – I didn’t spot a vegan option. I tweeted Costa though, and apparently their fruity crumble is vegan, so I’ll keep an eye out for that next time I go – I’m hoping I just missed it.
There are a couple of things I’ve eaten during the past week that have become absolute favourites for me and I cannot get enough of them:
- Peanut noodles
- Thai pasta from Mayam Bialik’s Vegan Table
- Bliss balls – I started out with Kayla Itsines recipe, but ended up just doing my own thing, throwing in desiccated coconut and more cocoa powder
So far, so good and I’m looking forward to another week of discovering new, delicious meals.
