That's right, this wahm went vegan on January 1, 2010 as part of the PCRM 21-Day Kickstart. How am I doing? Great, actually, and I have only been tempted twice. Chocolate is a weakness, but Mexican cornbread is heavenly. I just whipped up a batch of cornbread from Vegan Comfort Food and am on my way to Earth Fare to snag some of the Go Max Go candy bars that people are raving about.
It's been hard to cook meat for the family, though, but that's how it was pre-vegan. I have instituted a something green with every meal rule and they are following. DD was always easy about that because she takes her lunch and loves veggies. DS is another story. Smoothies, salads smothered in dressing, and the lettuce, tomato, onion burger topping are his preferred produce pics. One step at a time.
Hubby has lost about 15 pounds since mid November and I'm down 6 since January 1. I am not complaining at all!
I've been cooking from Happy Herbivore, Veganomicon, The New Farm Cookbook, Radiant Health Inner Wealth (blogging and testing recipes from Tess' upcoming book, and throwing things together from my head. I'm a happy girl, the family is happy cause 'I haven't changed their meals.' Right. Shh.
By the way, I am not being paid for any of the things I mentioned. I thought I'd share. Maybe someday I'll be paid for my posts, but until then...
Here's to 2 more weeks of yummy vegan fare!
