My vegan failure.
It’s almost dinner time here and I’m only posting now because I spent the day, again, helping my brother and future sister in law, getting things ready. I saw their new apartment for the first time! It’s pretty neat (the owners made some changes so a lot of it is new) and a bit small, but they’re just renting and it’s just the two of them so it’s more than enough. We basically brought almost all of their stuff. Hard work!
I finally have the shoes I’ll be wearing to the wedding and omg, they’re the most beautiful shoes I’ve ever had. Most expensive too. 😛 I’ll have to take pictures to show it to you. Also bought a new coat (I really needed it though, everything I have is huge on me and it makes me look frumpy!) and it’s so pretty and I’m kind of in love with it. Pictures to come!
Well, let me just start by saying that I really loved Michelles’ and Katys’ idea for Vegan 4 A Day challenge. I really intended to be vegan for the day. And then I failed miserably. But we’ll get to that.
Here’s yesterday’s lunch. It was actually leftovers. There’s some potato, egg, veggies, fish and of course, tomato and onion salad.
My snack was 3 small toasts with queijo fresco and some tea. Also some chestnuts. My god, I can’t resist them…
Dinner was some soup, an apple, 3 toasts with queijo fresco (so original) and two squares of chocolate.
This morning I was all excited because of the Vegan for a day challenge. I used almond milk for the first time!
Yummy banana oatmeal. Always awesome and delicious. Is it me or cow milk is sweeter than almond milk? I didn’t try it by itself so I could be mistaken.
Lunch was stir fry with veggies and seitan and tomato+onion salad.
And that’s where the fail begins. For about a minute I completely forgot about the challenge. I was thinking “What should I have for dessert….”. I was craving something sweet. And guess what I had for dessert? Low fat pineapple yogurt. LOL Yeah, as vegan as they come, right? I put a spoon in my mouth, and it tasted so gooood… and then it was like OH NOES NOT VEGAN ALERT ALERT ALERT. But yeah. I totally ate that yogurt.
I’ll complete the challenge another day because now I REALLY WANT TO DO IT. Failure is not an option! 😛
Anyway, then the afternoon was spent carrying stuff, etc. I had an apple, a walnut, two squares of chocolate. Then my dad came home and brought some roasted chestnuts with him… of course I had like 4 or 5 ahaha
I still don’t know what I’ll have for dinner but probably something quick and convenient because we’re all pretty tired!
Here’s today’s photo of the day! This is my brother and my future sister in law! Very appropriate, I think, since the last few days have been pretty much about getting everything ready for their wedding. This was from their engagement photoshoot. I really like it because they’re so natural and happy. 🙂
Hope you’re all having an awesome day!
