|(Last year I took this picture of my Pillsbury ad campaign gone very wrong. haha |
I obviously never submitted my idea, but I enjoyed eating them!)
As if I don't already have enough going on in my life, Rob and I signed up to work with Jared Vaughn, a holistic health coach, for the next three months. He wants us to experiment with new foods, eliminate processed foods, and have a more plant based diet. This week we're vegans!
Foods I've discovered since becoming a vegan:
Coconut: Anything from a coconut is amazing: the milk, the oil, the sugar. I loved the coconut milk yogurt and creme brulee I tried this week.
Soba Noodle Stir Fry: I ate this the night before my 20 mile run. I felt great the next day. I'll definitely be trying that again.
Kale chips: Great stuff! Super easy to make.
I didn't realize how many foods vegans can actually eat. It's not that difficult after all. While I'm looking forward to eating meat again next week, I'm glad to have the experience. Losing five pounds in two weeks doesn't hurt either.
The craziest thing is that we've discovered around five vegan/vegetarian restaurants within walking distance from our apartment. They've always been there, but we just ignored them. Of course I accidentally order the most unhealthy item on the menu (tempera/fried veggies ha), but I'm happy to know they exist.
Have you ever experimented with veganism? It's interesting. I have to be honest, sometimes I'll try a food and think I just can't deal with this. Perhaps it takes awhile. Like the Green Goddess Smoothie? Oh my. Not happening for me. Not yet anyway!
