At some point in the near past, I announce my switch to veganism for a month. I feel like its been forever since that announcement, but I believe it has actually only been one week.
So far, its been pretty awesome. I've had some issues stabilizing my bloodsugar (I go from 'hungry' to 'dying of hunger' pretty quickly) but its also been really nice to be spending so much time back in my kitchen. I love cooking. I love eating. Its a win/win for me... until it becomes unhealthy that is.
I've done some amazing things this week; I ate tofu for the first time (since the last time!) and actually liked it! I've made my own almond milk. Several recipes I've tried have turned out fantastic*. Kale chips are my new go-to snack.
Unfortunately I've been so excited to eat my food, I haven't photographed any of it. The one meal I did manage ( quinoa pasta with nooch tomato sauce) was just a useless cellphone picture.
I'll try to be better in the future.
Today I made an executive decision: instead of changing my work schedule for a day to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two - the Midnight Showing, I'd decided to keep my schedule the same so I can work out in the morning. The movie will still be there this weekend.
If you're interested in incorporating some vegan meals into your diet, I highly recommend the beautiful food porn website, www.findingvegan.com. Seriously, awesome stuff.
*I was going to upload a picture of some amazing chocolate pancakes I made with homemade strawberry syrup (that was maybe 300 calories all together- omg, so amazing!) but alas, the picture will not upload. Perhaps another day.
