30-DAY VEGAN CHALLENGE: Week Two

29 Sep

Weekend one was a little rough, but I made it! Watching people eat pizza was slightly agonizing, but now that I am back into the weekday routine, vegan eating has been a breeze! It’s mid-week and I’m feeling energized, healthy, and really positive. I have also been cooking a TON which has helped keep my meals fun and interesting- I think that may just be the key to long-term vegan eating.

If you havent heard of her already, Isa Chandra Moskowitz is an amazing author and vegan cook. Several of the dishes below are tweaked versions of recipes from her book,  Appetite for Reduction. So far I am very pleased with everything I have cooked from this book- it’s a total winner!

Breakfasts:

Van’s vegan waffles, raspberries, agave

  • Ezekiel english muffins with tofutti and heirloom tomatoes
  • Oatmeal with stevia, almonds, and raisins

Lunch:

  • 89% Leftovers!
  • I also have had a few salad-like roll ups with vegan Boca burger in a tortilla

Dinners:

Lentil and Eggplant Red Mole Chilli with Vegan Jalapeno Cornbread

Cauliflower ‘Ricotta’ and Spinach Lasagna

Deconstructed Veggie Sushi Bowl with Poki Sauce

Olive, Zucchini, and Mushroom Soft Tacos with Guacamole

Recipes to follow!! 🙂

    30-day vegan challenge. Really interesting experiment. You’ve made everything look so delicious though—especially the Lentil and Eggplant Red Mole Chilli—that’s the exact sort of thing that makes my (otherwise carnivorous) boyfriend announce that he’d happily become vegetarian!

    Great idea, you must have really good control. I could never be vegan for a month… no way.

      Oh…im sure you could do it. You are definitely creative enough! I think it would be much harder for people who dont enjoy to cook. You can do ANYTHING for a month 🙂
