7 Day Vegan Challenge: Day Two

1 week of no animal products for a milk and cake lover, going vegan on a student budget. What could possibly go wrong?

Day 2

It went wrong. I tried to make porridge interesting with some apple chunks but I didn’t cook it long enough and I made the porridge too thick. Of course, I still ate it. It wasn’t that horrible but it could be better.

For lunch I had the leftovers of the butternut squash soup, which may be the best soup I have ever made. My friend didn’t mind I was taking photos of my food like I was addicted to Instagram either and said she understood my pain as a former photography student. Much appreciated.

At my friend’s house and we had spaghetti Bolognese. Sadly I forgot to take a picture (we were distracted by Mario kart) but it tasted amazing.

Nakd strawberries and cream are 100% better than the coconut nibbles. I had them for a quick snack and I wish I had bought more. Take my word for it or try it yourself. They are better in every possible way.

When I finally got home my ego had taken many beatings from Mario kart and I couldn’t be bothered to make anything. I had some hot chocolate and a midnight snack of almond yogurt. The yogurt I like more than Greek yogurt so maybe I’ll actually buy it in the future.

At about 2am I had a huge craving for a cold cup of milk before I went to bed but I squashed it down. I said I’d do this and I’m going to do it right even if it’s only for a week I’m sticking to my word. Still, I can’t wait to have a nice glass of milk.

Tomorrow I’m going to attempt some pancakes. I’m excited, but also filled with dread because I suck at making pancakes; I leave them on for too long, I make a mess in the kitchen or I make too much mix. I’m just a walking, talking pancake disaster.
