We are so proud of the effort everyone is putting into this Whole Food Challenge.  The group is feeling light and refreshed!

Suzanah:

Suzanah is an experienced foodie having worked in raw food restaurants and at Ayurveda clinic in Vancouver. But her challenge she told me is planning planning planning. So the menu plan gave her a good guide and like Ian she has been putting a spin on her own recipes (totally allowed BTW). ~ Julie

Robert (Suzanah’s partner and ownder of Dojan Studios in Vancouver)  described dinner as: “surprisingly refreshing!” “It tasted healthy!” and lastly..”boy, you sure know how to cook raw food!”..hee, hee..would have gone well with a nice, dry chianti!

It was a good day in Vegan Challenge Land!

Jessica:

A big thank you to Jessica who decided to stick with the challenge, eventhough she was a bit intimated by the challenge. Most people would feel overwhelmed of the thought of making everything your self for one whole week incluing your mylk and “buttah” But, as she is experiencing once you get the hang of it, it’s not so bad 🙂  ~ Julie

When I first looked at the instructions, menu plans and shopping lists I admit I was a little intimidated.  First, I was not looking forward to having to buy all the groceries. Second, I was worried I wouldn’t have enough time to make all the dips, spreads, soak the nuts and make all the unfamiliar recipes.  After my initial reactions, I decided I would commit to doing the challenge, and if I was going to do it, I was going to do it right.

I went out, bought all the groceries, minus a few breakfast things since they were optional, and hunkered down on Sunday night to start making all the spreads, dips, and dressings, while taste testing them along the way. They were all delicious! I started getting excited about all the recipes I’d be using them in throughout the week.

Monday night Jen and Bridget came over and I made the ‘Red Lentildelicious Soup’, which was AMAZING! We all loved it. I’ll definitely make it again.

Everything has been really flavourful and I’ve been feeling light, healthy and energetic over these first two days.  I no longer feel intimidated or that I won’t have enough time, especially since I prepared a lot of the base ingredients ahead of time.
