Well here we are at day three, so far I haven’t really found myself craving anything which is surprising me because I thought I would be dying for some cheese by now (usually a staple of my day!) I would just like to say hi to everyone who is stopping by here because of ‘Freshly Pressed’, thanks so much for all your kind comments and suggestions on what to try when eating vegan. All of your encouragement is very welcome. Thanks so much for your support!
So on to day three…
10 point if you can guess what I had for breakfast…. muesli and a vitamin tablet anyone?! I think I’m going to change things up a bit tomorrow and try soya milk porridge instead just for something a little bit different.
My Dad has grown and given me some fantastic produce from his allotment recently and I’ve been making good use of it in my lunches. Today was a humous, allotment tomatoes and raw spinach pittas which was out of this word divine I must tell you; with cucumber sicks and an allotment apple. Pretty darn good if I say so myself!
Dinner was a bit of a random one but it did highlight to me the difficulties of eating out when on a restricted diet. Today was my boyfriends Mums birthday so we went round there tonight to have nibbles whilst opening presents etc… all very nice and good. Except that because I hadn’t been planning on it I’d neglected to mention that I was eating vegan this week which made nibbles a little bit more of a problem. Thus for dinner I had cucumber and carrot sticks with some home made humous (which was very good indeed) and olives.
I think this evening has highlighted to me the amount of planning which you need to put in, in order to successfully eat a vegan diet when out from the little safety blanket of your own kitchen. I’m more than happy to pander to my own needs when at home but I do struggle with the idea of imposing extra work on other people just to suit me if I happen to be round for food. Its certainly an issue to think about when making extreme changes to the way in which you eat, especially if you are the only one in your group of friends or family making those changes.
I hope you had a fantastic Wednesday my friends. Let me know in comments what you think… are you happy to ask people to cook different food for you? Have you changed your diet when those around you have not?
