A month of vegan / week one


This week's been good. Not entirely dairy-free, but good all the same. I've eaten some spectacular meals as well as some great standbys:
:: bircher muesli made with soya yoghurt and fresh raspberries
:: toast with peanut butter and strawberry jam
:: burrito from Whole Foods
:: the Leon gobi
:: black bean chilli with avocado
:: the great dairy-free thali

... and tonight's meal - eaten by the whole family - homemade baked beans, broccoli, carrots, sautéed potatoes, and (pictured) a delicious recipe for roast pumpkin dish with garlic, cumin, herbs and breadcrumbs. (The book is designed to look worn and marked, by the way.)

My 24 hours in London was a blip and I ended up eating a little cheese and some milk. But I am not going to be hard on myself; I'd hate for this project to be a burden or a chore. I have no allergies, no real reason for doing this other than curiosity, and therefore if I'm a guest then I will eat what I'm given. Manners will always come first. More of that London trip soon...
