Dorset Cereals American Road Trip Muesli with Oatly – Not a huge fan of this combo, the oat milk I forgot to shake before pouring and it was just like slightly cloudy, watery yellow liquid (piss water basically) which put me right off it. I tasted it (pre shaken) and it was actually alright but the fact it looks like toilet water has put me off drinking it again, so it’s back to the drawing board with milk substitutes. I’ve heard a lot of good things about almond milk so I think that will be my next port of call in the hope I can find a vegan milk I like.
Houmous, Cucumber & Cauldron Falafel Sandwich with Pumpkin and Sunflower Seed Cob – Houmous and falafels are two of my favourite foods so this was destined to be an amazing sandwich. It had everything, the crunch, the softness, the flavour. Best sandwich I’ve had in aaaages!
I’ve found sandwiches are pretty easy to veganise and are actually nicer.
Tesco Mediterranean Cous Cous with Cauldron Falafels & Violife Cheese – This is a meal I love anyway so this was pretty simple to veganise. The Violife Cheese is kind of like a thick McDonald’s cheese slice and it pretty difficult to grate but I just about managed it. It tastes kind of nothingy though, I can’t pin point the exact flavour but it doesn’t taste much like normal cheese. I made Ben try it and he spat it out…lame. That being said it was nice on the cous cous but on its own it’s not the nicest.
Hippeas and Houmous – Snacking has been mainly houmous and various crisps. This is the best combination ever. Game changer this one, plus I finally found the big bags of Hippeas (which are fucking amazing). Bit awkward to dip but I’ve eaten 3 tubs of houmous with them today, mainly because the expiration date was today also but mostly because it’s amazing.
This week, again, I have eaten a bunch more than a days worth of vegan meals. The only awkward thing so far have been things like topping a vegan meal with different cheese for just me or buying 2 different types of milk and them all not fitting in the bloody crappy fridge we have. Just little annoyances but food wise has been okay and I think in total, this week the meals I’ve eaten have been mostly vegan. I need to swap out some other bits like the Quorn pieces for the vegan ones or supermarket brand because they appear to be mostly vegan and work out cheaper anyway. I’m still not sure if I could do this full time but for the most part it’s going alright!
