Holy “Cow”…I Was a Vegan All Day.

Yum and yay. I am uber, uber pleased with myself for maintaining veganism all day today. I actually skipped coffee today and opted for a smoothie with some vegan protein powder dumped in. The smoothie was a blended happiness of pineapples, blueberries, cantaloupe, strawberries, and Silk soy milk. I will say that I probably could have blended it a bit more in order to ensure that the protein powder was more mixed into it all, but other than that, I was pretty dang happy.

Lunch was my favorite with Thai Vegetable Cake (like a patty of some sort, freshly made not by me because I was lazy, but by local Native Sun, which is similar to Whole Foods), and combined it with spinach and red peppers into a wholesome vegan tortilla wrap. Suffice it to say that I procrastinated on writing a review of Louise Penny’s book, Bury Your Dead for my other blog (Coffee and a Book Chick) so that I could savor each tasty bite.

And for dinner…this is where, although vegan, ehhh. Wasn’t exactly healthy. I wanted something quick and fast – so I opted for Smart Dogs and Tofutti cheese slices. My side dish, though, was a pile of fresh kale and red and green peppers, which was all raw vegan awesomeness, so hopefully that balanced out the processed part of my meal.

Side note on vegan cheese: Most of them suck immensely, but I’ve found that Tofutti is my most favorite brand *ever.* From cheese to ice cream, I think it’s one of the most fantastic companies out there since it knows that some of us still remember the taste of cheese and ice cream, but just can’t eat any dairy.

All in all, I’m excited to go to bed tonight and close out Saturday, February 5th, 2011 as a vegan day.

Happy Eating,

The Wanna Be Vegan

  1. Awesome!! You go girl! I was thinking about being vegan and what it meant last night on account of reading your blog. I have to say how in awe I am with the commitment it takes. Vegetarian is one thing but vegan- man that’s a whole new level. Glad to hear that it’s so far so good!

  2. I have never considered going vegan . . . until I saw Oprah this week (Kind of embarrassed to admit being moved by Oprah but there you have it). Now I am going to try vegan one day a week at first and see how I get on with it. Your story about how much better you felt once you went vegan is inspiring!

    • Colleen – too funny, that’s exactly how I felt about the whole Oprah thing, too 🙂 Definitely try it once a week, or even try it where you have veggies as your primary entree and if you eat meat, make that the side dish. Good luck and thank you so much for stopping by!

  3. Hm. I can only buy the Tofutti cream cheese here in Holland, no other products. So far I have only tried fake mozzarella form another brand and it didn’t do much for me.

    Can you eat kale raw? I didn’t know that! Seems like it’s too tough?
