Sorry little buddies.
It's 1 week after my 3-week diet ended, and now is a good time to reflect. I never went into this challenge expecting I was going to go vegan for life. At most, I was hoping to learn some vegan subsitututes I would be likely to incorporate into my everyday life.
Vegan Habits I'll Continue
Milk alternatives: Soy milk in my Americano; Almond milk in my cereal (here for my almond milk post)
Corn tortillas instead of flour
Homemade Vegan Granola (here for the recipe)
Eating nuts for snacks
Vegan Habits I Won't Continue
Vegan cheese. Bleh.
Not eating bread. I need it!
Soy milk/almond milk in my tea. I need the good stuff.
What I Learned
I used to think strict vegans/vegetarians were slightly self-richeous, smug, and kind of irritating. But after eating vegan for just 3 weeks, I have a whole new respect for people who put the time, effort, and willpower into a non-mainstream diet for the sake of their beliefs. I am extremely passionate about the things I believe in, and those willing to deprive themselves for the sake of their convictions deserve the utmost admiration.
