30 Day Vegan- Day 10

I'm finding it very hard to believe that I'm 1/3 of the way through my 30 Day Vegan course already. Although I went into this with a positive attitude, I expected it to be somewhat of a struggle. It isn't. At all. 

Heather has done such a wonderful job supplying us with recipes, I mean really good recipes, that I haven't missed a thing. When I announced to my husband that I wouldn't be cooking meat for 30 days, he thought I was off my rocker. Being the sweetheart that he is, though, and trusting my cooking, he didn't throw a tantrum, or insist that I cook special for him. He hasn't committed to the month in the same way that I have- he's still eating meats, eggs, cheese, etc. if he makes his own breakfast or lunch, or if he is eating away from the house. The same goes for Abigail and Collin. 

The true test? Every one of us has enjoyed the meals for which we've sat down together. No complaints at all. In fact, Verne and Abigail in particular have raved about the recipes.

Roasted Root Vegetables over Brown Rice

I've not been craving dessert at all, but Abigail sure has. She's used to dessert every night, and has hinted a few times, so I've obliged by making vegan apple crisp. Tonight I added a few blueberries as well. 

 It's particularly good with unsweetened almond milk poured over the top. 

I've also made a batch of Carrot Sesame Spice cookies, and they were wonderful. 

I continue to have energy, and I feel really good. I don't anticipate having a difficult time with the next 20 days at all.

I am glad you are blogging about this - I was/am curious as to how it would all go. Glad you are all enjoying, not craving sweets, and have energy to boot:) KUP on the next 20 days:)

I like the idea of vegan, but not sure I'd like the actual process. I love eggs and cheese, and haven't liked the vegan versions I've tried. Then again, I live in the middle o'nowhere, KY, so I have limited options.
My husband would revolt. He's a meat and taters for every meal kinda guy.

Hi Momma Marketer!

I love eggs, too. In fact, we have our own chickens. I'm not even trying soy cheese, or egg substitutes. Blech! I don't intend to eat this way forever, so I'm just going without. :-)

My husband dropped the crisp I made. So I lost the crisp (before I had a chance to try it AND my pyrex container. I'm traumatized. :)
