Y'day:

Lots of lemon water and a stinging nettle burdock root infusion with some lemon and ginger.

A frozen banana/grape juice/blueberry/romaine lettuce smoothie.

A big salad with zoodles, butter crunch lettuce, kale, carrots, red bell peppers, cucumbers, garden onion, beet greens, topped with chickpea chickenless salad, sriracha hummus, and a drizzle of roasted garlic balsamic.

Tomato sandwiches on chickpea rosemary garlic flatbread with veganaise, sriracha hummus, lettuce, red onion, and fresh basil leaves with freshly picked and shelled steamed peas, and a serving of quinoa tabbouleh.

Delicious! Today was the 1st time I tried it. This is the only fake meat I've ever eaten that is A) yummy and that B) didn't make me sick. (I got REALLY sick from eating Qorn products.)

I also made peach and spinach juice but I haven't had any yet.

D - Quorn Vegan fishless fingers with tomato ketchup, parsley mashed potatoes (so much parsley, it was pure green) and peas

P - not sure yet, may have a bit of wholewheat toast and spicy bean pate* later if peckish

I had a banana and some juice for breakfast, and thick sliced vine tomatoes salted on toasted sourdough bread with Vegenaise for lunch. Trying to keep it light so that I can pig out for the 4th later since we have so much good food for the holiday.

Those are bomb with Chipotle Tabasco and Daiya blue cheez dressing on whole leaf romaine lettuce wraps.

Doesn't Quorn have dairy and eggs in it? Am I wrong? Is that just Morning Star?

Quorn has some vegan options just like Morningstar. The mycoproteins are a problem for some people though.

I haven't seen Morningstar BBQ riblets in quite a while. They were vegan and really really good!
Just looked at Morningstar website and they're still listed

There's a growing Vegan Quorn range, I think that's a big deal in the UK as Quorn leads the market in faux meat products here; in no small part due to their very successful marketing which has targeted 'health conscious' non-vegetarians in particular.

The middle aged, middle classes (among other groups) have really embraced Quorn as a regular menu item; in particular things like Quorn sausages and mince, have become really popular due to their 'high protein', 'high fibre', 'low fat' nutritional profile. I think the prominence of the Quorn brand has been a part of the increasing 'normalisation' of non meat eating in the UK.

Now, due to consumer pressure from a growing vegan market, those groups who have adopted Quorn for health reasons are being presented with vegan options with a big green 'Vegan' on the label. That can only be a good thing, as it's a positive association, helping to raise awareness of this 'vegan' thing and hopefully curiosity in customers. I've also read that Quorn's CEO would like to take the whole range Vegan, but that it will take time to reformulate all the products. I think it's a logical progression for the company, and more good news for both vegans and veganism

The story is no doubt different in the US, as Quorn was a latecomer to your supermarkets, but here it's been in mainstream supermarket freezers since back in the 80's.

So far, a cup of lemon/ginger/burdock root infusion and some vine ripened blueberries, sugar snap peas, and a few sweet potato greens during my morning stroll and harvest.

Well, the last vegan thing I ate was a handful of red mulberries I picked off a tree on my way to the bus stop. They were good, but I JUST missed the bus and had to catch the next one 10 minutes later. I should've taken my time and really chowed down. :P

Before that, for lunch, I had a vegan burrito/wrap: rice, garbanzo beans, fresh spinach leaves, and pickled hot peppers for a bit of flavor. And 4 plain pitas left over from dinner at a middle-eastern restaurant. Water to drink.

I have tried to be a vegan but its to hard to stop eating chesse, milk product or butter. I'm vegeterian and I'm trying to cut down dairly product and animal food product, but for now I can't be 100% vegan. Does anyone can tell me what you having on breakfast, lunch and dinner? Are you eating the same thing all the time? I know its a healthy option of live that's why I'm trying to be a vegan.

Read this thread for ideas. Plenty of pages to go through.
You can also type "what vegans eat" or something similar on YouTube if you want something more visual. There is a lot of videos like that.
As for eating the same things all the time, it's going to depend on the person. Some people do that, others don't. BUT, vegan food can be very varied, so you DON'T have to eat the same thing all the time.

hi Dan

As Jess said there are a lot of good ideas right here in this thread and on other threads and online in vegan youtube videos etc.

Here are a few of our favourites:
Breakfasts

  • cereal with fruit (Shredded Wheat or Spoonsize Shredded Wheat)
  • toast w/jam and nut butters (sprouted breads, eg Ezekiel)
  • pancakes with berries and maple syrup
  • pancake bars
  • porridge or "oats" with berries
  • hash browns (with veggies)
  • breakfast beans on toast
Lunches

  • homemade soups with pita bread
  • breakfast beans on toast
  • sweet potatoes with salsa or antipasto or beans
  • leftover rice with beans or lentils
  • toast with avocado
  • beans with noodles
  • all leftovers
Dinners/Suppers

  • pasta - a variety of pastas topped with a variety of sauces and veggies
  • mashed potatoes with bean burgers (or bean loaf) and greens
  • roasted potatoes and vegetables with bean loaf or salad
  • simple vegetable chili on rice or potatoes or with tortillas chips or pita bread
  • burrito / rice bowl
  • refried bean casserole
  • pizza
All the best with your journey.

The label says Flaxseed. Linseed oil is what you use for thinning oil paints, LOL. the only difference is the purity and of course they don't bother with cold pressing it . I still feel like I'm painting when I open the bottle of flaxseed oil because they smell the same

You only think you are eating organic

Growers are contaminating crops by adding "Feathermeal" to the fertilizer! Feathermeal is ground poultry feathers from non-organic poultry processing plants. It is widespread and very difficult if not impossible to find organic fertilizer without this additive. Protest to your organic stores. Not great to ingest the pharmaceuticals that are fed to poultry through soil contamination

Yesterday

Had a banana for breakfast

No lunch

Dinner was baked potato with thick coconut yogurt (I used this instead of sour cream - it was OK, but coconuty!) and chives, pan fried butter bean and leek patties (recipe here), broad beans, sweetcorn and diced tomato.

Alcohol free beers later (not bad, it was a work night)
Cold crisp toast topped with jalapeno 'cheese' and finely sliced red onion.


Today

Missed breakfast

Plain baked potatoes at work (in the microwave)

Dinner is whole lentil and potato stew (recipe here) with bread and 'butter'. I love this meal, it's so tasty and satisfying.

Evening snack was Berry Bircher Muesli

Gardein is my favorite meat substitute company.

Their fishless filet and the Mandarin crispy chicken are my favorites.

Today I had one of the most amazing burgers I've had in my life, VG Beyond Burger from a southern California chain joint, Veggie Grill:

So far several glasses of water, a peach citrus white tea infusion thing from starbucks, a banana, and some pancakes I made, with cardamom and cinnamon instead of the sugar, and maple extract and almond extract instead of vanilla extract. De..Flipping...Licious.

Been craving milkshakes like a mofo on these hot summer days, especially whenever I ride by the various ice cream parlors and such, so I tossed some coconut water, romaine lettuce, hemp seeds, and frozen bananas into the vitamix and am now in milkless-shake heaven. Might even make another one after I finish mowing. Talk about incentive to get it done. lol
