Pete’s vegan project is coming along nicely!
I went grocery shopping for US yesterday. Usually I shop for me and Pete shops for himself. Since Pete can’t shop and we are doing the vegan project while he’s injured I was able to buy food that, ethically, I agree with buying. This project initiated because I was going to be Pete’s nurse-maid while his shoulder heals and I won’t touch meat. Even before I became a vegan I wouldn’t touch meat.
Here’s Pete’s lunch on 9/1/2012. Who says vegan food can’t be fun and smiley?
Here is what Pete had to drink that he requested from the store: vanilla soy milk. I tried to get something close to whole dairy milk that would be similar in flavor but couldn’t come up with anything. Pete despises the taste of skim dairy milk and likes the richness that whole dairy milk. I thought if I got him a sweet plant milk that taste would make up for the lack of fat. It didn’t go over so well…even in a Jack Daniel’s glass!
Here was Pete’s dessert. I got two of these coconut milk ice creams. I got the mocha almond fudge below and also a peanut butter and chocolate swirl. Pete had the peanut butter and chocolate swirl and said it was good but that the texture was slightly different than dairy-type ice cream which he was used to. I think, given time, he could get used to it!
For breakfast Pete had the usual smoothie and for dinner he had an Amy’s Roasted Vegetable pizza (no cheese). YUM! I had one too. Just a note: you can eat the whole pizza if you feed the crusts to your dog. If you eat the crust, you will have leftovers if you eat this pizza alone. Pete had three leftover pieces. And I had none (Mr. Biggs, my dog, got all of my crusts)!
That’s yesterday’s report! Enjoy! Today you can look forward to a post later about Elizabeth making vegan food for us. She is a friend from church that calls Pete Mr. Poop. I’ll tell you more in the next post. But she was kind enough to make us some vegan food today. We are going to pick up the food so Pete can meet Elizabeth and also so I can see her adorable baby!
I love the smiling vegan food. Don’t you? Haha!
