Thanks for all the suggestions for the vegan week!
I told my dad yesterday that I was doing it and he looked slightly concerned and said: “But won’t you starve?”
I started explaining that that was exactly the view I wanted to challenge by writing the piece… but he was engrossed in watching Scotland get a Six Nations kicking from the French – and I don’t think a lot of it sank in.
Still, it’s always nice to know your dad’s worried as to whether you’re going to stay alive or not 🙂
I won’t have to change my food-buying that much but I did get this lot today:
Kinnerton’s my favourite brand of dark chocolate anyway so it’s an added bonus that it’s also certified vegan!
I’ve also made wraps to replace my egg-containing pancakes for lunches this week so I’m all ready.
The only thing that could have been a problem is the chocolate situation though. I love dark chocolate but I also love milk chocolate… whether it’s smothering raisins or not 🙂
But I’ve found a make of dark chocolate-covered raisins, I’ve got my eye on my (vegan) chocolate chip cookies, my nut butter stash is at the ready…
I’m looking forward to it.
Ps, isn’t it weird how things “fit”? I knew Carrie was becoming a vegan but I didn’t know about the one-week challenge she mentions, started by Morgan. She’s challenged people to try the diet for a week, which is next week!
Even Oprah‘s done it… had anyone else heard of this and are you going to try it?
