7-Day Vegan Challenge: Day 4
I stayed up pretty late last night, and didn’t get up until this afternoon. I skipped breakfast and had brunch. Above is a delicious sandwich I made earlier today. I used home made hummus, caramelized onion jelly, chickpea cutlets, salad, and balsamic vinaigrette. I put the sandwich on a frying pan and grilled it for a couple minutes on each side.
The chickpea cutlets were made by my girlfriend’s father, who also made the hummus. I loved every second of that sandwich. Below is a picture of a big bowl of vegetable Pho I had after I ate my sandwich. I put a slight bit of Sriracha sauce in it to give it a bit of a kick. The challenge is going well. I don’t feel limited in terms of food options. I definitely can’t eat the same things I use to, but that is a good thing.
Things that I’ve learned today
- Once you eat home made hummus you become a hummus snob. You’ll refuse to eat store bought hummus.
- Vegetable broth is just as satisfying as meat based broths.
- Tofu is as good as you make it. It’s essentially a sponge.
