Day 1: Eating Vegan

This morning I woke up and was really pumped about our committment to eat Vegan for one week. (Note: we’re eating Vegan and most importantly knocking out processed foods, etc.) It may seem dramatic and like a far fetch idea/goal but I need to be dramatic to be able to make such a big change for one week!

Because of the holiday, Lover Boy was home today so we got to do our first day together! We had a great time goofing around, teasing each other as well as fight off our normal food cravings (me=sugar, sugar, sugar. LB= a big juicy hamburger!)

I can honestly say that today wasn’t “that bad”…maybe I should be worried for day 2 and 3! I felt full and satisfied most of the day. My only weak point came around 4pm when we ran out to Home Depot. I was cold (it was 59ΒΊ today!) and really needed some sugar (after a day of reflecting I realized that I really really consume a lot of sugar on a daily basis!) So, because I am not doing this to be miserable, eat nasty food, etc. I shared a soy (venti…opps!) Tazo Chi Tea Latte with Lover Boy (first time I ever ordered soy!) It worked.

For dinner tonight we both were still full from lunch but because our brains have been thinking about what food we’re not eating for a week we both were craving a big juicy hamburger! Good thing we had each other to joke around with to pull ourselves past this craving! πŸ™‚

Anyway, here are the meals we had today! (click on the meal names for recipes!)

 

Oatmeal with Fruit & Pecans
 

 

Veggie Quesadillas with Long Grain Wild Rice

Veggie Quinoa

We loved breakfast and lunch. In fact LB said that he really loved lunch and was so proud of me for getting him to like something without meat! (yeah me!) πŸ™‚ However, the quinoa for dinner was just OK. I don’t exactly know what I think about it. It wasn’t bad but wasn’t super yummy.

Excited for day 2!!
