I went on a food adventure yesterday! It was a gloriously sunny day, so I decided to venture into Gorton (tip: there is no reason why you should ever want to venture into Gorton) to seek out a big Tesco store in the hopes of finding delicious vegan food. Other than the grim Mancunian architecture and people, the place wasn’t all that bad. I got some nice frozen food to keep me busy (omg, vegan mince) and finally found hazelnut milk, yay. Oh, I also acquired some delicious looking melty vegan cheese (all of the pizza) at V Revolution which I’m DYING to try out!
I’ll update when I try out the new food, in case it’s terrible (or awesome).
Two things have happened recently. I’ve started eating vegan and also training lots at pole and aerial fitness. Being vegan can be difficult if you’re training most days, as your protein intake needs to stay high to prevent muscle loss (and even though I’m not an athlete, not getting enough protein in my diet is my number one fear currently, right up there with loosing all my teeth and touching poo covered rats).
SO. This blog will be my food diary as I adapt to the vegan diet, to keep all my recipes in one place and to hopefully moderate my sweets consumption. This will not be a beautiful food photography blog, nor will it be a super healthy food blog. It will not be a complete guide to what I eat.It will be an attempt to eat vegan (most of the time) recipes that fit into my busy life and also have them be cheap. I will add recipes of homemade food and a price per portion, as well as the aproximate protein content per meal. Hopefully this will help me keep track of my daily feedings and be interesting for others at the same time.
Let the adventure begin.
