Vegan Out: Day 9
I’ve been feeling a bit funky the past few days and am still wondering if this vegan diet is to blame. Yes, I’m feeling light while eating absolutely everything I want. But I’m also feeling lethargic during the day and sleeplessness at night, along with a nagging thirst that I can’t seem to quench. I’ve googled some of these symptoms without any real answer, so I guess I’ll just deal with it and move on.
Day 9: The day I ate veggie burgers and tried Daiya for the first time
Breakfast was coffee, apple with peanut butter and banana chips. Spared you the photo.
I was craving some junk food, so I went to my local WF and bought some Amy’s Veggie Burgers (Low Sodium, y’all), Daiya “Cheddar Cheese” and Ezekiel Whole Sprouted Hamburger Buns.
After a few minutes in the pan, it gets a grade of C- for meltiness
All assembled with onions, tomatoes, spinach and ketchup, it makes for a nice hearty burger. Those Ezekiel buns are a meal in themselves. Although I have to say, I wasn’t crazy about the Daiya Vegan “Cheese”. It had a funny flavor and didn’t really add much. Some things just can’t be replicated, ya know?
For dessert I had some Soy Pudding. I’ve found it interesting that a lot of these vegan products seem to be overly sweet. That was my impression on first bite, then I quickly devoured the whole cup. New favorite treat!
After work I went straight to Yoga, and then on a long distance date with the Big Guy to see “The Town”. I packed another veggie burger and some banana chips to eat during the film. The second burger was better because I loaded it up with an entire Avocado.
I had so much fun watching The Town because I got to see a ton of places that the Big Guy and I have visited in the past 9 months of long distance dating.
It was set in Charlestown, which is where the Bunker Hill monument is
There was a big scene at Fenway Park, where one of the robbers walks right by this statue
My favorite part was a car chase through the North End, which is where the Big Guy lives. (And also where Paul Revere lived)
It was a nice little mental trip to Boston that was much needed!
