28 Day Vegan Challenge

I’ve really been struggling to stay on plan. My Dr doesn’t want me any grains at all and I’ve found the prospect of a grain free, vegan diet to be a bit daunting.  I was mulling this over when a friend of mine sent me a groupon for a 28 day vegan challenge. It was a crazy good deal and I’m a sucker for those, so I signed up. The best bit, the gal in charge encourages a Gluten Free Cleanse.

There are two options. The “all in” approach or the more gradual one. For me, If I can stick to gluten free and vegan for 28 days.. I’ll consider it a success.  I’m not even going to worry about eating GF grains. There is a ton of support and I’m enjoying all the new information that has been appearing in my inbox.

Oh Happy Day!

Breakfast today was soy yogurt with granola and fruit.

Lunch consisted of a thai rice noodle dish

Dinner was a rather tasty, but failed attempt at a Gluten Free hazelnut crusted tofu. I had hoped to use almond flour instead of regular flour but Im all out. Instead I opted for coconut flour and I used to much to boot. The coconut flavor was more prominent than the hazelnuts, but everyone scarfed it down non the less. It was served with  a side of apple, pecan brussel sprouts and was followed by strawberries in a lavender syrup. The lemon sugar put them over the top. I’m going to have to make them again so that I can get a photo..

We definitely ate well today.
