I decided to start my 30 days of eating "Vegan" aka no animal products the day after I got back from vacation (read why I’m doing this here). This worked out well, because when I arrived home my fridge and freezer looked like this:
Coffee and peas.
After 1 trip each to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, it looked like this:
Ahhh much better.
The TJ’s goods:
Sprouted sesame bagels
Almond and peanut butters
Beans: Black and Garbanzo
Brown rice penne
Fruit: bananas, lemon/lime, frozen berries, organic grapes, avocado, dried mango
Veg: Assorted peppers, mixed greens, spinach (2 bags), grape tomatoes
Vegan Peanut Satay
Tofutti cream cheese
WW Pizza dough
Bottle of Pancake wine
The WF goods (AKA ‘Things TJ’s Does Not Carry’):
So Delicious Coconut milks + creamer + yogurt
Daiya cheese- Mozzarella + Cheddar
Cinnamon (simply b/c I ran out)
La Croix (my new obsession)
My eats for the first day are as follows:
-Breakfast: Oatmeal (unpictured) w/ PB
-Lunch: TLT on a sprouted bagel w/ lightly steamed greens on the side
This was delicious!! It tasted just like a BLT. I was hesitant about the “fakin bacon” and the Vegenaise, but I was pleasantly surprised by both!
Dinner: Brown rice penne with olive oil, tomatoes, olives, and fresh basil
I had a picture of the pasta, but can’t seem to find it. Either way, this was awesome! And as a side note, brown rice pasta is DELICIOUS.
For snacks I had some fruit and the Kombucha throughout the day, but I didn’t find myself to be overly hungry.
All in all, I would call today a success!
