I didn't cook those dishes last night. You know, the flavored edamame and the cherry tomato saute. I have to make them tonight before the zucchini possibly goes bad.
I ended up eating my self-confessed "favorite meal" instead: a four-cheese lean cuisine pizza and a bag of smartpop popcorn. Oh, well.
I still have a few of these, and in the interest of not wasting food, will eat them until they are gone.
My new plan is to be vegan 100% at least every other day. I think that will help speed the transition up a bit.
Since I ate my big-dairy-meal last night, today is a vegan day. My first ever. So I thought I would share my meal plan with you!
breakfast: 12 almonds, 1 medium banana
lunch: 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/2 cup bean trio (canned but organic), side salad w/ oil and vinegar
dinner: Mexican-flavored edamame, mint zucchini cherry-tomato saute, 1/2 cup brown rice and steamed greens
snacks: 5 cups air-popped popcorn w/ 1 tsp evoo, 1/4 cup raisins, some other veggie perhaps?
I would definately be having a sandwich or burrito in there, but I don't think the bread products that I have are vegan. They both have something called "calcium bisulfate" in them, which sounds like a milk ingredient. Please correct me if I'm wrong!
I think that I do need to go to the local Whole Foods and get some vegan bread and tortillas, because I love sandwiches and burritos. Yesterday for lunch I had a tortilla with refried beans, rice and salsa. Delish!
