Day two of Veganuary. So far, so good. No unusual side effects (I think).
We’ve both felt tired and hungry in the afternoons, but what’s new?
Tried to start the day on a good foot. Papaya, kiwi and blueberries with lime juice. Then had some Ryvita with almond butter at 10ish.
Lunch was a good one. Baked sweet potato, refried black beans, guacamole, rocket and pickled red onions.
Prep level: intense. But making the most of the kids being at their grandparents’.
Black bean burger tacos with roast veg, roast cauliflower ‘wings’ and nacho cheese. The vegan nacho cheese is an absolute revelation! The recipe is from The Happy Pear – it’s essentially potato, carrot, oil and nutritional yeast flakes. I forgot to add the rice milk, and didn’t have any tapioca starch, but it’s still amazing.
Not feeling like a vegan superhero yet, and there are loads of dished to wash up. But no complaints so far!
