Vegan for a Week

Hello lovelies,
Last weekend I decided that I would try to eat vegan/plantbased for a week as part of November being World Vegan Month. So no meat, fish, dairy or eggs.

I know that I eat a lot of animal products on a normal basis so I thought this would be a good challenge for me to be a little more creative with my food.

Seven days later and I don’t really feel like I am missing much.
Yes going out for dinner seems to be really difficult and by day 6 I was missing my breakfast eggs. But in conclusion, eating vegan is a lot more than just fruit and veg.
Hummus, Avocado & Eggplant were probably my saving grace and I think I will keep these foods in my weekly shop from now onwards.

I also read a lot and watch a few documentaries about veganism and one documentary that I thought was so so interesting was Cowspiracy.
Cowspiracy is not about animal cruelty like so many veganism documentary are but it takes a completely different stance on the whole situation and is really really interesting. 
HIGH RECOMMEND! (I think its still on Netflix, at the moment)

Here are some examples of what I was eating:
PS I didn’t have salad once!


Overall, it was a really good experience and I am definitely going to keep a few of my vegan meals in every week.
Baby steps, right?

Stay happy and healthy lovelies
