Adventures in Veganism: Day 5


Last night Keith asked me how I was doing with this whole "vegan adventure thing" and I kind of shrugged my shoulders and say "meh."  He still did not understand my quest and stated how no one could ever pay him to try it.  So that put a little more fire under my feet to really stick it out to the end.  I mean it is not terrible - there are way many more worse things a person could eat.

For breakfast on Day 5, I ate another Blueberry Muffin.  It was just as bad, if not worse, than the first one I had.  It was a little more hard and had freezer burn, so I nibbled a bit since I was starving this morning, but ended up throwing about a third of it out.   

Lunch was a chilled Southwestern Salad that reminded me of a Mediterranean tabouli with added rice bits.  The spices and Southwestern seasonings were very strong in this dish.  I ate most if it.

Dinner was a tasteless and disappointing Cashew Pesto Pasta.  I was pretty surprised, because it actually looked appetizing and just like the picture, but lacked any salt or pepper and was extremely oily.  It was a nice large portion though, so I managed to still eat most of it including the broccoli chunks.

Dessert was another hard Peanut Butter Cookie. Again, I don't understand why these cookies are like rocks.  The desserts could use some improvement.  Day 5 was a bust to say the least.

What I ate:
