|vegan packed lunch|
I am now a third of the way through the "30 Day Vegan" workshop so time for an update. This workshop is excellent and the course materials are very well presented. Already I have lots of new recipes to try as well as nutritional information and ideas for taking care of yourself.
I don't eat meat often but still I am surprised at how easy it has been to stop eating both meat and dairy produce. I have also chosen to cut down on caffeine, replacing tea and coffee with Redbush tea. After ten days the main change I have noticed is that I seem to have more energy through the day and I don't have a slump in energy levels in the afternoon.
I have been eating mainly vegetables, grains and beans so far which might sound boring but with sauces and dressings everything tastes really good. I am cooking vegan just for me (couldn't persuade the rest of the family to join in) but I usually cook enough for two meals so I have something already prepared for lunch the next day. Many of the meals taste just as good cold so I have packed lunches for work all sorted the night before . Eating properly at lunchtime rather than just grabbing a snack may be the reason my energy levels seem to be more constant throughout the day.
I am looking forward to the next batch of recipes to try out this weekend.
