Nearly 24 days ago we set out to do a 30 day vegan challenge. This meant no meat, no eggs, and no dairy for a full month. I’m just blogging about it now because I honestly didn’t know if we would make it the entire time, so I was afraid to commit to it in writing! Suffice it to say, with so few days left in the challenge, I’m pretty sure we’re in no danger of falling off the vegan wagon.
Eating at home was the easiest part of the challenge, since I only make vegetarian food at home anyway, but going out to eat wasn’t as hard as we thought it would be. We managed to get through and ENJOY a family barbecue and even (really tasty) vegan bar food while supporting our friend’s band. The past 3 ½ weeks have seen us eat lots of healthy and not-so healthy vegan items.
The healthy: Salads, green juices and smoothies, soups, hummus, roasted bell peppers, crudités, salsa, flax crackers, bean dips, watermelon, cherries, stir-fries, falafel, stews, nori seaweed wraps, pita sandwiches, kelp noodles
The not-so-healthy: Homemade Vegan chocolate cake, vegan ice cream (both of which my family said tasted like they were not vegan), vegan potato salad, vegan chili dogs, vegan pizza, vegan beefless tips (gross, imo), and a few I’m probably forgetting.
