Veganuary. Done.

Now that the whole Veganuary thing is complete I thought it deserved a little post. If you are an avid follower of the blog, which you’re probably not, in fact you’ve probably stumbled upon it whilst drunkenly trying to follow Kim Kardasian, you will be aware that I’ve been considering going vegan for some time. I also dragged my wife, Helen, along for the ride.

How did we do?

Well, we did it. We ate and drank an entirely plant-based diet for 31 days. Doesn’t sound very impressive when you say it like that. But, we did it.

It was a fantastic ‘journey’. We tried plenty of new food, experienced new tastes and had some great discussions along the way. And importantly, it wasn’t too much hassle.

A few highlights:

  • Arriving at a pub at midday to find a Jack Daniel’s waiting for me because they didn’t know what beer to buy. Drinking Jack Daniel’s in the afternoon is a good thing.
  • Some great finds: the Linda McCartney range of foods, the sausage rolls are fantastic.
  • Being able to continue drinking Guinness.
  • Feeling healthier and generally less hungry. Gone are the days when I return home from work and devour anything and everything available.
  • Oatly barista edition milk – fantastic in coffee.

On top of all that, I feel great knowing that I’m living a more compassionate life.

Probably important to say, February 2nd and still vegan…

Day 28 Veganuary

I was in charge of dinner tonight: vegan sausage rolls, chips and beans. These Linda McCartney sausage rolls are lovely.

Just what was needed after yet another ridiculous day at school, followed by an hour on the treadmill at the gym.

I also watched The Ultimate Triathlon on Amazon Prime – well worth a watch – follows the story of a fella who swam, cycled and ran 2000km in 12 days from Morocco to Monaco. Amazing.

Day 27 Veganuary

Tonight, Helen created soup disguised as lasagne.

It was a strange one. Definitely tasty. Just couldn’t quite decide what it was. Although it didn’t stop me eating it all.
