Vegan week – Day 2

It's really hard to find vegan junk food. Chocolate is made with milk, a lot of chips have cheese powder listed in their ingredients, and a lot of candy is made with gelatin, which comes from cows' hooves and pigs' tendons. However, I did find animal product-free chips today (Ruffles all dressed) at a corner store and I was thrilled because I was in the mood this afternoon for something salty, fatty, processed, and full of preservatives.

Other than the chips and a big handful of Finnish liquorice a friend gave me, today was a fairly healthy day. Best part? I don't feel at all deprived. No cravings, no hunger pangs. Being vegan seems to be pretty straightforward.

Breakfast – quick oats with almond milk and a handful of raw hemp hearts mixed in:

Morning snack – NutriBullet smoothie: 1 banana, 1/2 apple, 3 large chunks watermelon, 2 inches cucumber, handful blueberries, 1 tbsp ground chia seeds:

Lunch – wholewheat pita from Extreme Pita stuffed with every vegetable imaginable, hummus, and Italian dressing:

Dinner – leftover beans and rice with a glass of orange juice:
