Vegan Week Extended

So last week went well as a vegan.

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.

  1. Vegan week... I love it! I'm glad that it's going well and you are trying new things. If nothing else, you'll see what else is out there!

    And good for you for giving up the Vegan thing for your b-day. A b-day without cake is just wrong.
