7-Day Vegan Challenge: Day 2

The second day of the challenge went well. I woke up and was extremely hungry. I decided to skip checking my fridge and cupboards and just went directly to the grocery store. Above you can see some of the items I purchased. My niece was over and she was also using our table to play with lego, thus you also get to see her awesome cruise ship.

Some of the items I bought

  • Tofu
  • Cliff Bars
  • Almond Milk
  • Coconut Milk
  • Bolthouse Farms – Vanilla Chai Tea
  • Lettuce
  • Avocados
  • Salad
  • Broccoli

There’s a couple other items you might also see in the picture.

Breakfast was good. I had a cereal mix called Love Grown, which has oats, dried fruit, coconut and various types of fruit. I used the coconut milk as a milk alternative for the cereal.

To be honest, I prefer the taste of milk to the various alternatives, specifically coconut and almond.

For lunch I had hummus, olives, and soy hot dogs. It wasn’t that bad.

Dinner was fantastic! I had butternut squash soup and a vegetarian curry with coconut rice.

 

 

Things that I’ve learned so far

  1. When shopping, always have a smartphone on you. The process of shopping took a lot longer than normal. I had to google items to find out whether they are vegan or not. I knew Cliff bars were probably vegan, but I had to google to find out exactly which ones were and which ones weren’t. Try to go shopping during a time that there is less people in the store. I did my best to be mindful of others, however I got some negative looks from other shoppers because I would stop frequently to look up items.
  2. I love ketchup. I might be overdoing it a bit.
  3. Eating healthy as a vegan is cheap. Eating unhealthy is very expensive. Vegan snacks and desserts purchased from an Organic Food Aisle can cost a pretty penny. Entire stores such as Whole Foods are also not a place to shop with the expectation of saving money.
