Vegan Week - Day Three

Ok. I need the meat. I must be doing something wrong because after dinner each night I'm ravenous. I'm eating a sandwich (or 2) and I'm still hungry. I'm experiencing a desire for steak as intense as my pregnancy cravings for Burger Rings and Fillet o Fish. Watching Masterchef each night is just about killing me.

And now, dear readers, my confession. Last night my husband brought home some Tim Tams. Tim Tams!! I ask you, who can resist a Tim Tam? That's right - no one. So yes, I ate two, and yes, they have dairy in them. I cheated. And were they worth it? Too bloody right they were.

Anyway, onwards and upwards!

Menu:

Breakfast:
Rice porridge (again!)

Lunch:
Baked beans on toast

Dinner:
Pizzas with soy cheese, mushrooms, olives, sun dried tomatoes

Post Dinner Verdict



Blah.  The pizzas were Ok.  I didn't notice the soy cheese and the kids asked for seconds. I'd call that a success. It just wasn't yummy.

I struggled today.  I feel quite flat and tired even though I'm sleeping well. Too little protein? Not enough iron?

I'm a bit disappointed. I really thought I'd be feeling great this week, not worse. And why is it that the only thing I can think of is:

  1. Must admit, I saw your nachos post this morning and stopped by Wendys to pick up a taco salad for dinner...except now they call it a "meaty mexican salad". Naughty eh...

  2. We don't quite do vegan pizza (as I do use cheese) but I pile ours high with caramelised red onion, pre-cooked eggplant, sometimes courgette, mushies and sliced black olives. It is gooey (the topping, anyway) and delicious. I used to make a veg & non veg pizza on pizza night, but this version is actually way yummier than a meat pizza so I don't bother with the meat one anymore! Thanks to the olives, the kids will eat it.

  3. Yours sounds much nicer than ours was! Caramelised onions is a great idea. Ours was a bit dry and I think that's why it wasn't great. I might give it another go next week. Thanks for the ideas!
