So. I kicked of my attempt at being 1/7 vegan last week and am here to report that it went smashingly. I don't think I consumed any animal products but really, who knows. I do know that there was a near disaster regarding some peppermint mocha coffee creamer. It's amazing the things you do just out of habit. And it's amazing the things that are animal products that you never even think about.
So here's what I ate. Because I know you've been wondering all week.
Breakfast was 1/2 cup of uncooked oatmeal (4 pp) (cooked) with blueberries, 1/2 tsp of brown sugar and 1 tbl of jelly (1 pp) (Is pectin vegan? Yes. Gelatin is not. Lots to keep track of.) Anyway. This breakfast was oatmeal, I'm not going rave about oatmeal. But the brown sugar helps.
Dinner was a winner winner that was made up of a simple taco bowl. It was warm and comforting and cheap and filling. Win enjoyed a taco bowl with me; this proves it really was good and I wasn't just in looser denial about how much I wanted some cheese.
Want to make one for yourself? Here you go!
1/2 cup cooked brown rice (3 pp)
1/2 cup canned black beans (2 pp)
1/2 avocado (4 pp)
onions (sauteed in cooking spray and cumin)
12 multigrain tostitos scoops (4)
So there you go. The adventures of a 1/7 Vegan begin. Or a veh-gin as my nutrition teacher used to say.
Any suggestions? Hit me up!
