To the Vegans:
Please don’t think that I am belittling or disrespecting your choice if you are a Vegan. If anything, my exploration of one aspect of your lifestyle is a sign of admiration for the choice you have made.
Here goes. Day one. It started like all days. Up at 6:40AM, Grab a cup of coffee and a bowl of Weetabix before jumping into the shower, shaving and running out the door. However, today I couldn’t have dairy so instead had Coconut milk. First impressions are that it’s actually not that bad.
Dinner was a vegetable biriyani. Rice, a truck load of vegetables that I never eat and some kind of sauce.
At this point I need to credit Emma. She’s doing all the hard work in preparing these recipes.
Dinner was lovely. The vegetables and no meat made for an unusual texture but the taste was fantastic. There were a few vegetables in there that I wouldn’t really like but you really need to understand that from a very early age I have had a loathsome relationship with vegetables. I hate the things with a passion. A small bit of a carrot on my plate is enough and only very rarely. That’s one of the reasons I’ve taken on this challenge. I except that I need to change so this will force me in the right direction.
Tea was a vegetable burger. It’s a recipe written by Jamey Oliver. Not the nicest thing I’ve ever eaten by a long shot. The description suggests using sauce and after trying the burger without the sauce I fully understand why that’s a suggestion. Ordinarily I never use sauce. I think it’s almost disrespectful to the cook. It’s basically saying that you need to hide the flavour of what has been cooked by using an over powering sauce. That’s probably what is needed with this burger but it wasn’t bad with a small bit of sauce so that will be tried again later in the week. There are still two there so we’ve put them into the fridge for Wednesday night.
That’s it. Short and to the point. Today was the first day of my week long challenge. It wasn’t half as bad as I thought it would.
