I decided to go ahead and make a conscious effort to follow a vegan diet as my contribution to Meatout 2001. It’s not an easy thing, as a lot of items labeled “vegetarian” (like soy cheese) have ingredients like casein, which is not vegan-friendly.
For breakfast, I had a half a grapefruit.
For a morning snack, I had organic celery with some organic peanut butter.
For lunch, I had a Boca vegan burger on whole wheat bread with lettuce, onions, and mustard. I also had a huge organic red delicious apple, an orange, and a 1/4 sleeve of whole wheat Ritz crackers. No Double Stuf Oreos for me today. :)
For dinner I’ll be having Rigati pasta with some sort of tomato sauce—probably a tomato basil blend. I haven’t decided on any side dishes.
