I cleaned out my fridge yesterday. Cheese, yogurt, fish, chicken, ground beef, broccoli and cheddar steamers I’d just stocked up on–all gone. I was left with nothing except some frozen mixed veggies. It was a lonely sight. Then I went to the pantry. Biggest disappointment: Chunky’s Tomato Soup has milk in. Sayonara, good friend. You’ve kept me warm on many a cold night.
Two stuffed bags of groceries to my sister’s and a trip to the grocery store, and I’m set.
I’ve been vegan for a few days now, and, with working so much the past few days, it’s been quite easy. I spent my weekend helping my brother cook prime rib, fillets, and delicious beer battered fish for the masses. I ate my fruit and was content.
Now that I’m stocked up I’m looking for some delicious vegan recipes of my own. I started by stealing this recipe for a mushroom and spinach wrap (if you’re looking for vegan recipes this is a great place to start). I tossed in a handful of diced tomatoes and black beans as well. This may not be so hard after all.
Though to be honest I am still eating Kashi Go Lean Crunch. The almond milk is pretty good, but apparently the cereal is not vegan. It’s got honey. A lot of food contains honey. Those damn bees. My bread and a half dozen other items I gave away, but I wasn’t ready to part with two full boxes of my favorite cereal. So as I work on polishing off those off, I will technically not be 100% vegan.
Those bastards stung me often growing up, so as I eat my cereal, I will consider it justice. The bees may just have to suffer for another week or so.
