Half a Veganuary 2018

It's the time of year where I resolve to post more again on this blog, and I should do really because as I think back over 2017 I cannot remember any of my 2017 food highlights.

It's now 7.30am on January 4th and I am on day 3 of Veganuary - I am doing 2 weeks and didn't start until the 2nd. I am also doing RED January, so I am generally trying to be more mindful about myself and life.

I haven't asked Half* to eat a Vegan diet with me, but as a default some days/meals she will eat. So what have I consumed so far?


Day 1

Breakfast

  • 3 cups of tea with almond milk (I have been using almond milk in tea for a while now, I enjoy the taste)
  • Avocado and chilli flakes on toast
  • A couple of spoons of baked beans
Lunch
  • Rice noodle soup (vegan bouillon) with peppers, carrot, green beans, sprouts 
Dinner
  • Baked potato with vegan cheese and vegan spread
  • Baked sweet potato with vegan cheese and vegan spread
  • Green salad 
Snacks
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • A few teaspoons of peanut butter!
  • Black coffee

Day 2

Breakfast
  • Avocado and chilli flakes on toast
  • Tea 
Lunch
  • Pasta with tomato sauce 
Dinner

  • Chick pea curry, oven chips and steamed sugar snap peas

Snacks
  • Bananas
  • A few teaspoons of peanut butter!
  • Apple
  • Strawberries
  • Vegetable crisps 

After day 1, I was really hungry and have been mindful to eat more snacks. I really hope to make it to 2 weeks. I think I will, it's not been as difficult as I thought but is certainly making me more mindful of what I am eating. Looking at what I have eaten so far, it's not too different from what I night usually have - the vegan cheese and spread isn't something that I would usually have, and I wouldn't eat avo on toast without an egg, but aside from that all is pretty much the same. The chick peas might have chicken as well, the rices noodles would certainly contain chicken/turkey (Half's did contain some left over turkey). 

As I start day 3, I am up early (no work and pretty chilled at the moment so needing a lot less sleep). I've prepared a bean chilli. Snacked on Koko yogurt (delicious). And excited about the day ahead.

Namaste, witches x
