Today, 9 days into my 10 day challenge, not only do I feel better but I LOVE how my vegan food tastes. Everything is fresh, more flavourful and delicious! I should have been eating like this all of my adult life.
MAKE TODAY THE DAY YOU CHANGE!
Day 9 vegan challenge meals:
Breakfast: 7am. Nectarine.
Beverage: 8am. Starbucks Colombian Via with almond milk.
Snack: 10am. Almonds.
Lunch: 12noon. Vegan fried rice with bok choy. AstigVegan suggested I substitute black bean sauce for salted shrimp fry (bagoong). It's not quite the same flavour, but it really worked with all the veggies and tofu. I was full for hours and didn't feel the need to eat anything before yoga.

Dinner (sort of): 8:30pm. Crispy oyster mushrooms in the guise of Chicharon Bulaklak. Post yoga, I wanted a treat while watching my fall tv shows. (Yes, I schedule my life around tv. Yes, we have a PVR.) I wouldn't call this a nutritious dinner, but it was exactly what I wanted! I was tempted by twitpics of porchetta and fried pork rind (which I know sounds really disgusting to non-Filipinos), and was dying for something salty and crunchy. This was HEAVEN!
