Vegan Day 4 (last one)

I realise I have gone pretty wrong with breakfasts. I met Kerry McCarthy at the raising of the European Flag ceremony today, who suggested that oat milk is not the best to try and almond or another milk would have been better, so I'll get some next time to try next time I'm in Scoopaway. Grapefruit and toast has been pretty good anyway. Lunch in the Folk House, paid for with £B my favourite currency, it was a mixed bean salad. I felt a bit hungry after first finishing it, and also being reminded to leave the butter off my bread (I really like the taste of butter.......) A celebratory night out (I don't really eat out this much normally) on Friday with Persian food from Kookoo, recently moved up to Filton Avenue. Delicious dips and then an Aubergine dish with amazing herb rice. (pictured). Summary of Vegan days: I have really enjoyed it, and feel pretty good on a nearly wholly-non animal diet (oh those mini-eggs and the odd cup of tea with a drop of milk). Tomorrow I am being sent out for pain-au-chocolats for birthday treats so I am not even going to attempt to continue. I will increase the number days I eat vegannly. So, thanks to Bristol Food Connections for stimulating me to change the way I eat.....

Vegan Day 3

Good day of good food. I met an old friend for lunch and had a tasty butternut squash, pumpkin seed and chickpea salad with a delicious lapsang tea. Dinner was our regular store-cupboard favourite: kidney bean curry. (You can make it half an hour and one tin of kidney beans and one of chopped tomatoes serves 2). Also had an unusual evening talking to a WI group in Gloucestershire - apparently they've never had a debate before.......

Vegan Day 2

I think I made a mistake getting Oat milk, so it was muesli and water again. I also had olive oil spread on my toast, but the taste is not the same as butter - I probably shouldn't expect it to be the same........ Lunch Challenge: Bristol City Council sandwiches between a site visit and planning meeting. Yes there were hummus salad sandwiches and some deep fried samosas that had vegetables in. So good marks to BCC kitchens ! Supper: Spring Cabbage, Broccoli and Pasta Fairly seasonal spring cabage with pasta and garnished with garlic and fresh ginger fried. I spiced it up with some chilli and lime pickle...... Found it impossible not to have a mini egg and some raspberry chocolate from the cupboard........

Vegan Day 1

A bit late starting Vegan experiment. Today breakfast with water not milk in muesli and honey and no butter on toast. Then thought - but maybe honey is not vegan....oops! Lunch was going to be something delicious from the Spotless Leopard Van on Whiteladies road, but due to ill child, hummus on toast. I have bought some oat 'milk' but no good in tea, will drink without instead I think. Supper cooking illustrated, butternut squash 'stew' with chickpeas and lentils, and some spices. We are using our last butternut squash from last year and our last onion.....luckily there is both some stew and squash left......dates for dessert......

Good Food Diary Challenge

To have at least 3 wholly vegan days during the festival. I already use the Bristol £ and shop locally on Gloucester Road, and do eat vegan food sometimes but not usually for all meals in a day......
