I am taking the weekly eco-challenge at the Reduce Footprints blog to eat vegan for an entire day! Eating vegan means you cannot consume foods that are derived from animals. In addition to eating meatless meals, this means we can’t eat any of our usual cow dairy products and eggs.
It would not be so hard if it was just MYSELF that I was feeding, but I’m planning to take my whole family along for this one…and I don’t want them to know. (They are picky eaters and if they suspect I’m somehow tricking them into different foods – they are less willing to try something new.)
My plan is to use Vegan recipes that are fairly similar to the foods we normally eat. I have actually found it a bit challenging to do this, but here is what I have come up with. My full day Vegan Menu plan. Want to join me in the challenge? Click on the photos to see the recipe.
(There’s no picture for the lasagne, but I got it from the site that this cookbook is featured on)
Wish us luck! I’ll let you know how it goes and if anyone notices anything “different.”
Do you eat a vegan diet? If you have any advice or recipes for me, please share it in the comments.
