I’ve been eating a Vegan diet for 11 weeks now and I’m feeling good.

Here are some pictures of meals I’ve enjoyed recently.

1.  A falafel, mushroom, spinach and houmous burger.

2.  Tofu/veggie scramble, fried polenta slices and steamed savoy cabbageImage

3.  ‘Green Museli’ – I chuck in lots of pumpkin seeds as an extra and add chopped kiwi fruit. This one was served with almond milk.

4. And finally, a luscious lemon cake I made at Easter

I’ve also been enjoying trying out some great bodycare products from ‘Lush’ and am completely bowled over by their shower gel called ‘The Olive Branch’.  It’s wonderful.  Here’s a link:-

Thursday 28th February

Breakfast – toast and jam (one slice wholemeal, one slice rye, jam = St Dalfour high fruit content jam), coffee

Lunch – wholemeal sandwich with ‘Tangy Tomato Tofu Spread’, half an avocado with freshly squeezed lemon juice, glass of orange juice

Dinner – noodles (an instant non-egg variety), with gently fried ginger and sweet red pepper, baked half of an avocado and baked tomatoes, steamed spinach and hazelnuts, steamed asparagus.  This was an awesome dinner and I wish I’d taken a photo of it! 🙂

Dessert – Chopped banana, Alpro caramel flavour dessert pot and maple syrup.  OK, a bit of a kid’s pudding, but it was lovely 🙂

 

Wednesday 13th February

Breakfast: 2 slices of granary toast with p-nut butter and jam, tea with soy milk, half an orange

Lunch: Falafel burger served on granary bread with houmous, avocado, fresh peppers, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, olives, jalapeno peppers.  Some tinned lychees with Alpro vanilla soya dessert.

Mid-afternoon: fruity tea

Evening: my evening was packed with stuff, which meant I didn’t have time to shop or prepare food.  This used to happen when I was an omnivore as well, and I would often end up eating toast, or ordering in a pizza and then not sleeping well as my body struggled to cope with the late-night overload of stodgy food.  When I got in at 9p.m. I listened to my body, and ended up eating 7 dates (untreated) and a mug of chamomile tea.  This turned out to be a good choice and I slept well, waking up hungry for breakfast.
