I've completed my first week of the Great Vegan Challenge. I'm actually a little surprised at how easy it's been, I honestly expected to find myself gently weeping in the cheese aisle of Tesco on day two. But so far, so good! I haven't had any cheese cravings as of yet, and I've eaten a lot of delicious food.
I was really pleased when I realised that Tesco sell a vegan friendly red thai curry paste. James and I have been making some delicious sweet potato and chick pea curries. There's also a great local shop just round the corner from James' that sell vegan millionaire's shortbread made with peanut butter. No I'm not even joking, it's heaven. Plus I'm supporting a local business so everyone's winning.
The discovery that M&S have quite a lot of delicious vegan salads pretty much made my week. They're 2 for £3 and I love them. Any time I can't think of what to have but I need something quick, this is where I go. It's definitely made this week easier on me.
Pinterest has also been a great source of inspiration, I've pinned loads of vegan recipes that I'd like to try over the next few weeks. Here are a few of my favourites:
If you'd like to share any of your favourite vegan recipes with me, I'd love to hear them! Hopefully the next week will be as easy as the first.
