Happy Easter Eve/Passover!

I hope everyone is having fun this weekend, whether celebrating the above holidays or just enjoying life.

I made vegan carrot cake cupcakes to bring to my boyfriend’s aunts house tomorrow. I snuck one already and it was delicious! All I did was get a vegan carrot cake mix, added12 oz. of ginger ale, mixed and baked! I got another cake mix in case this one didn’t turn out, so now I can make one all for myself. I just went out and bought regular vegan frosting. It works.

Switch up!

I switched up what I was eating…again. I decided it would be fun to have something different for the next few weeks (and lose this winter weight because DAMN!!)

From Monday through Thursday, I have school, so I tend to get quick and easy but nutritious. For breakfast, I am eating cereal, a banana and a cup of soy yogurt. For lunch, I have chickpea salad on flatbread, carrot sticks and an apple for lunch. For dinner, I have a stir-fry complete with tofu, veg, rice and some peanut sauce.

For Friday-Sunday, I have more time to cook, so I can have more fun! For breakfast, I make “scrambled eggs” with peppers (pic on my Insta veggiesweetheart), potato and an apple. For lunch, I have lentils cooked in taco seasoning, rice, corn and an apple. For dinner, I have grilled mushrooms, fried cabbage and pierogies.

And that’s the fun I’ve had this week.

Happy Friday!!

Hope everyone has had a good week this week!

I haven’t vlogged in a minute. I will do one next week!

Last Sunday, the boy and I went to Olive Garden and had dinner. I had linguine pasta and marinara sauce, salad and breadsticks. It was delicious!

I need to get my diet in a little better shape. I know these past few weeks have been fun (aka not too much on the healthy side) but now I have to scale it back a bit and find healthier alternatives to what I have been eating.

Have a safe St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow!

Hey All!!

Some fun stuff happened this week!!

I stumbled across some vegan pierogies at Aldi’s. I fried those up and, in a separate pan, fried up some cabbage. OMG. It’s my new favorite comfort meal. It was great!

I went to a restaurant in Akron and got their veggie burger. It said on the menu that it was a black bean burger, but it showed up green. Whatever. It was massive and it was good! I don’t care that it fell apart on me, I ate it anyway!

Last night, my dad’s wife made me some vegan stuffed cabbage. They were delicious!

Can you tell I’m hungry?

There’s a grocery store near me that accidentally makes their hot cross buns vegan. I found this out last year and I am buying them up like crazy this year. I even had a dream about them last night. Thank God they are only seasonal!

I went to a brewery in Cleveland this past Wednesday and they had some good vegan beer!

I need to get some pierogies. Or I guess I could make some.

Food Blahs

Something wierd has happened to me the past few days: I haven’t felt like eating. My stomach has been in knots and wasn’t feeling it. I have been drained of energy and all I wanted to do was sleep. I had felt like shit.

I went to write a grocery list because I needed to go today and it hit me: I hated what I was eating. I didnt want a baked potato. I didn’t want chickpea curry. I didn’t want anything. So I threw out my grocery list and went to the grocery store to pick out what I truly wanted.

I got sugary cereal, flatbread and dressing for sandwiches and sorbet for when I want dessert. I got what I really wanted for food and guess what? I wanted to eat again. I even cancelled a Chinese dinner date with myself because I was more excited about what I had in my grocery cart.

Moral of the story: Switch up your food routine once in awhile. Get things you will enjoy eating!

Anyway, how has everyone’s week been?

Thoughts

Does anyone who has been vegan for a while now get sick when they eat faux meat? I used to be able to eat faux meat but my body has decided its not a good idea and I gag real bad when I eat it. I made a vegan roast beef sandwich this past weekend and as soon as my body detected the fake meat, my body was like,”nope, not today bitch” and I gagged real bad. I didnt want to throw up because I was at my bf’s house, so I took some pepto bismol. I used to eat that roast beef every day. Maybe it is time to move on.

Any takers for the 40 day vegan challenge? How are you doing?

Week 4 of classes. So far, so good.
