I have now completed my second week without eating cheese!
I don’t feel like there’s a huge amount to say in addition to last week’s update because I haven’t found it hard. Well, I tell a lie; I went out for a meal on Monday and there was no choice but to eat a non-vegan meal. There were no vegan meals on the menu. I had a veggie burger which, for some reason, had cheese in it. I have no idea why because it’s not necessary and I couldn’t even taste it – so that was a bit annoying.
When I started this challenge, I knew that eating out would be the hardest part because so few places near me are vegan-friendly.
In other news, I read that Ben & Jerry’s are releasing a vegan range which makes me so happy. It’s nice to see a big, international brand acknowledge vegan diets or people who are lactose intolerant. I’m not sure if / when it will be available in the UK, but I hope they bring it over here.
I’m continuing to feel better in myself and am enjoying cooking, and experimenting with new things. Here are a couple of recipes I’ve enjoyed this last week:
- Vegan brownies – These have become a real hit, even amongst non-vegans. They’re the tastiest, and gooest brownies I’ve ever tasted. They make me want to flail about on the floor.
- Nutty pumpkin seed baked veggie burgers
