Well its its day 7 today, officially my first week as a vegan! Its been a good week. Ive learnt some new things and tried out some new taste's. I even managed to lose 700grams this week as a bonus! But now the real test starts: back to work today! I have an education day today which will be fairly cruisy- sitting in a classroom for 80% of the day listening to lectures. Im going to take in my own lunch obviously. The only hurdle I can foresee is people usually bring along cakes & sweets on education days so I will have to politely decline those. I will be quizzing the coffee shop on whether they do soy milk aswell for their coffee's. I think it should be a legal requirement for all coffee shops to offer soy, not just for vegans but people with lactose intolerances aswell. Maybe thats what I should call myself: a vegetarian who is 'allergic' to eggs & lactose intolerent, instead of saying 'vegan'. I still havent told anyone ive gone vegan yet, not even my husband. Im surprised ive gone a whole week without him even noticing!
Breakfast: grain & rye toast with tofutti.
Snack: soy coffee (if the cafe has soy milk that is!).
Lunch: wholemeal crackers with hommus & sun-dried tomatoes. Fruit & yogurt.
Dinner: ill probably make the same pizza's I had last night, just to use up the fresh vegies.
Dessert: vegan jelly & grapes.
