Thursday 28th February

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

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 🙂

It’s starting to feel more ‘normal’ to be eating Vegan, and consequently I’ve not felt so much interest in writing about it!  Anyway, here’s the food diary for the past few days.  I haven’t forgotten that one of my correspondents has asked for information about how much money I’m spending on food.  I’ve started keeping track of my receipts since Monday morning, and I hope to report on this later in the week.  Over the weekend I had a few meals out, more than would be typical for me, and I was also away staying with a relative, so I spent less at home, but more out of the home, in a way that wouldn’t represent my typical eating patterns.

Saturday 23rd February

Mid-morning: a soya latte at a coffee shop

Lunch – nice meal out at Summersaults restaurant in Rugby www.summersault.ltd.uk   – chestnut pie and red cabbage salad, pot of Raspberry and Cranberry tea

Dinner – baked potato, lovely salad from recipe on internet with a sweet, spicy dressing, followed by a warmed slice of Crimble’s Dutch Apple Cake with Alpro dairy-free custard

Sunday 24th February

Breakfast – Museli and soya milk, an orange, wholemeal toast with ‘Vitalite’ vegan margarine and marmite, instant coffee with soya milk

Lunch –  recipe from internet using orzu (rice shaped pasta), tomato paste, garam masala and mushrooms, leftover salad from day before, followed by warmed Dutch Apple Cake with Alpro custard

Evening – trip out to the Indian buffet at Nawaab, near where I live – I ate all sorts of things from the vegetarian part of the buffet, with chickpeas, spinach, aubergine, okra, rice, cornbread, carrots.  I think I might have failed to stay Vegan, because I realised afterwards that carrot Halwa is gently cooked in milk.  It was a lovely meal, but I wasn’t thoughtful enough about it in terms of staying Vegan, and I also ate too much which made me feel unwell the following day.  The peril of greedy me at the buffet!
