The 30 Day Check In

Today marks the 30th day of my vegan adventure. I’m actually surprised at how quickly the time has flown. I’ve enjoyed exploring the world of vegan cuisine. When you are vegan, you need to cook a lot of your own food and bring it with you during the day. At first I found this tedious Continue Reading …

Cate’s Vegan Challenge – Day 4

                  Hello! Well, today I did much better – to start out.  I had a great shake again for breaky and made sure I packed enough food to get me through the day at work.  I work at a great place that has a terrific health & Continue Reading …

The Vegan Challenge – Cate

Day 2 of veganism! Well, doing this challenge has really “challenged” me to stop and think about all of the foods that we consume regularly. It is virtually impossible to find good, healthy, unpreserved, chemical-free everyday food. I usually have always read the labels, but now I’m disecting them! I’m feeling really good about all Continue Reading …

Jesse & Janine Day 5…”Are we done yet?”

                Saturday.  A day we sleep in and relax and do as we please.  I get up to walk the dog and prepare a giant feast for breakfast – a pear/banana/nectarine smoothy, hashbrowns, tofu scramble with mushrooms, onions, jalapeños, and tofu breakfast sausages, and toast with vegan butter.

Janine’s Return to Her Roots…

Jesse & Janine Day 2

  Woke up on the second day of the vegan challenge all chipper. We both had the kick-ass scones that BB made us, and they are delicious! I covered mine in some vegan butter which tastes way better then butter. Also had some fresh fruit, skipped the smoothy and had a massive black coffee. All in Continue Reading …

day 22 – 8 days and counting – by jen

i want miso soup. i want lime tortilla chips. i want a raspberry white chocolate scone, extra crispy, toasted, with 2 little packets of butter. i want an americano breve, not misto. that means with steamed cream, not milk. i think. alas, as much as i am going through what i hope are final withdrawals Continue Reading …

day 20 – vegan grade 1 – by jen

i’m getting to the point where i don’t mind skipping the cream in my americano (the thought doesn’t even appeal to me at this point) and dodging the obviously buttery muffins and scones. but i am starting to get frustrated at not being able to eat things that aren’t supposed to have dairy in them. Continue Reading …

day 7 – visions of celery sticks – by jen

i’m starting to think that perhaps i’ve had a relatively easy time with this vegan september because my lovely bf kevin has been out of town since the 2nd. i picked him up from the airport today, and the first thing we settled upon, after the hugs and kisses, was that we were both starving. Continue Reading …
