I declare my vegan week completed. Let me say this, it wasn’t easy, and my better half said that I was more moody than I would be any other week. I suppose it was because my body was going through an overdose of vegetables and other sourced proteins; let me say this, as disgusting as it is, I was a little constipated, and from a movie I watched a while ago, constipation makes one grumpy.
I don’t think I will be a devoted vegan, or vegetarian for that matter, any time soon. It’s not because I’m addicted to meat, but I feel like it really is the source of nutrients and protein that my body likes to consume. I love tofu, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t have that in various shapes and forms to keep my stomach happy. I know that there are beans, but I’m not a huge fan of it, though if served, I will eat it. But I do have a lot of gas already, so eating more beans than I’m used to, I can basically fart my way to the moon.
Other than the fact that my body was not happy, my wallet was unhappy too. Although vegetables and certainly tofu is reasonably cheap in Malaysia, it’s specialized dried ingredients such as spelt flour and other flour-esque products and grains that can leave a hole in your wallet.And the problem with imported grains is that most of the time, if not always, they are always the organic kind, and it can be really expensive for an average jane such as me. So I’m giving the old wallet a little breather.
All in all, I’m really happy that I did this because it gives me an idea how vegans, let alone vegetarians, live and go through the challenges they face. It’s been a unique experience.
There will be some post articles regarding to vegan week, such as our serious article, Let’s Save the World, Let’s Be Vegans. Check that one out, it’s coming very soon. In addition, I will be trying out vegan recipes for desserts, searching and trying or attempting one from scratch by, at first perhaps, substituting ingredients from an original recipe. Whatever it is, I want to see if it tastes any good, because I am quite skeptical about it.
For those of you who have been following me on this green journey, I thank you so much. I was thinking to myself that perhaps every month I’m going to do a “week on” something. I haven’t thought for next month just yet but I will announce it when I’m about to do it. For now, it’s a little more discussion on veganism, some new recipes on the way, and the next thing we’re going to focus on is coffee. Oh yes…the other pop cultural trend that seems to be growing more and more popularity. If you haven’t already, scroll down below and click that ‘follow’ button. You won’t regret it, I promise.
