I was calling it "vegan week," and one of my friends said it was like "Shark Week,"
except the opposite.
I've been cracking up about that for a week now.
After trying it out for a week, I realized that I would need to think it through a little more.
I really like eating all plants. I love not eating eggs and dairy. I still eat honey. Because, really, I believe in bees and the importance of bees, and I want to support bee farmers!
I have been experimenting this week with Vega protein, which is great, but expensive. Replacing whey protein has been one of my big experiments!
I tried out a variety of flavors so I can pick one that I really like to buy a bigger package. Right now, I like chocolate of this, which has a whopping 25 grams of protein:
And Vanilla Almond of this, which only has 10 grams of protein, but is SO delicious:
Maybe I will buy both!
I have also been trying out different types of yogurt. I have tried coconut and soy. Not sure how I feel about them yet. Maybe I will just cut out yogurt and eat something different! But I still have a couple of different brands in my fridge to try out.
Cutting out a whey-based recovery drink meant that I didn't bounce back as fast this week. By that, I mean that I wasn't drinking ANY recovery drink. This week, I bought a few of these, and I loved them!
I have decided that I am going to take a break from vegan for one day to celebrate my birthday with real cake and ice cream. Then I am going to try to keep it up after that! I will keep you updated on my findings.
