^^Yay! A FELLOW VEGAN!

Today was an anxious day, but I didn't eat too much, so I suppose that's a plus!

1/2 shot espresso with 2 oz. soy milk

1 cup mixed vegetable soup with a clear broth (carrots, cabbage, potato, celery, tomato)

4 cups salad (mixed greens, spinach, beets, carrots, chickpeas, peas, sunflower seeds, black olives, 1 T. olive oil and 4 T. rice wine vinegar)

1 slice sourdough bread with 1/2 T. Earth Balance margarine

1 baked potato with Tabasco and 1/2 T. Earth Balance

1/2 a Rice Dream ice cream sandwich (150 calories worth)

1/2 oz. soy jerky

1 slice rosemary bread with 1/4 an avocado

1/4 cup pineapple

Just enough water

Thanks for starting this thread... maybe I'll get some good ideas! I eat too much vegan junk food and not enough veggies and whole foods. For example...

- Kashi Strawberry Fields cereal w/vanilla soymilk
- Luna Bar
- Butternut squash burrito (no cheese, no sour cream) + guacamole
- Tortilla chips
- Homemade pizza w/veggies & vegan mozzarella cheese - 2 slices
- Soy Delicious Orange Dream bar

... but I'm at least within my calorie range!

I haven’t been eating so well, so not too much posting from me lately. Well, it’s a new day, never too late to start over!

B: 1 c Kashi cereal with soymilk, ½ banana

S: Peach (yum!)

L: Spinach salad with dried cranberries and walnuts, homemade balsamic vinaigrette
Hickory Smoked Tofurkey sandwich on whole wheat

I have a nectarine for afternoon snack and I think we’ll have falafel for dinner tonight.

Made a great big batch of fresh salsa and some guacamole for tacos last night. I don’t even miss cheese or sour cream on my tacos anymore, give me some guac and I’m happy.

SoulBliss Ė Sounds like the food is amazing, YUM!

The dairy demons were out in full force this weekend. For some reason the weekends just sort of fall apart for me. Eating out always gets me. However, I did manage to make it to our farmers market and get some local goodies.

Back on track today:

B: Kashi cereal with soymilk, kiwi

S: apple

L: mixed greens salad with cranberries and walnuts
whole wheat spaghetti with yellow squash and mushrooms in basil/cilantro/spinach pesto

S: carrot sticks

D: Tofu frittata
roasted brussels sprouts and potatoes

I kind of like posting my menu on here, helps keep me accountable

For yesterday:

B: Kashi cereal with soymilk, strawberries
S: kiwi
L: Salad with herb croutons, tomato w/balsamic vinaigrette, Tofurkey sandwich
S: 1 oz l-f baked blue corn chips, fresh salsa
S: carrot sticks, apple
D: Amyís non-dairy pot pie

Cupcake tasting (not quite 1 cupcake)

Itís my fiancťís birthday tomorrow. I made two different kinds of cupcakes for him to bring to work, as well as a round layer cake for cake at home with friends, and two different kinds of icing. All vegan, none healthy. Iíll be sticking to just a small piece of cake, good thing those cupcakes will be leaving my fridge tomorrow.

Today so far:

B: Kashi w/soymilk, strawberries
S: kiwi
L: Gardenburger w/ cheese (oops!) & fries (double oops!)
S: apple, carrot sticks

I ate lunch out with co-workers and the Gardenburger was the best vegetarian option on the menu. Didnít ask for it with cheese but they put it on anyway, I didnít return it because Iím just a vegan wanna-be anyway and I hate to have them waste the food and make my coworkers wait for me. I asked if they had fruit or anything else to replace the fries, the option I was given was cottage cheese. At least I only ate about half of them.

Iíve got a full weekend with out-of-town guests and birthday festivities. 2 baseball games and a night out at a comedy club, and probably a few restaurant meals. Iíll do the best I can, but I tend to cave in social eating/drinking situations. Wish me luck!

Me too! And I like to look around for ideas!

-Kashi Go Lean + freeze-dried strawberries + vanilla Rice Dream
-Aqui (restaurant) grilled veggie burrito + guacamole + a few healthy chips
-Steamed veggies!!! Broccoli (1 head!), baby carrots (15?), zucchini (1 whole!) + uncheese sauce
-3 homemade enchiladas w/Morningstar Farms chicken strips, onion, corn & Vegan Gourmet Monterey Jack cheese w/green chile sauce (YUM!)
-Soy Delicious Orange Dream bar

Still eating junk food, but managing to get in tons of veggies lately, thanks to a convenient cheese sauce dry mix I found on vegweb.com: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7126.0

SoulBliss Ė Iím so jealous of the fabulous food at that retreat center. You must be feeling like a million bucks!

Just to show you what happens when I am exposed to environments and people that encourage bad/binge eating and drinking, Iím posting this diabolical list of things I ate this past weekend. WARNING: **mostly not vegan**

Friday night at the ballpark Ė few cheese curds, veggie burger, too much beer
1 slice birthday cake (vegan) Ė chocolate layered with peanut butter and strawberry buttercream icing.

Saturday
- Ĺ bagel w/ veggie cream cheese, Morningstar Farms veggie sausage pattie
- Chinese Buffet Ė garlic green beans, scallion pancake, egg roll, potatoes, lo mein, fried rice, egg foo young
- 2 manhattans
- Ĺ pizza buffalina from Tutto Pasta (it was so delicious and evil at the same time!)
- 1 glass Chianti

Sunday
- Whole wheat pancake from Aunt Jemima mix with banana, walnuts, applesauce and a drizzle of maple syrup, 2 Morningstar Farms breakfast links
- Too much movie popcorn, about 5 soft pretzel nuggets w/nacho cheese
- Sierra Mist (regular )
(Baseball game again)
- Too much beer
- Veggie burger with cheese
- Potato chips
-2 slices leftover pizza (1/4 pizza)

Yikes! Youíd think Iíd get sick eating like this, unfortunately my stomach seems to tolerate it pretty well. Must have been all those years of training in college. On the bright side my fiancť said he had a great birthday, our guests seemed to enjoy their visit, and the food was really yummy.

Back to your regularly scheduled healthy eating again today!

B: Kashi with soymilk, banana
L: Whole wheat pita BP & J
Spinach, cranberry, walnut salad w/balsamic vinaigrette
S: Nectarine, apple

Donít know about dinner yet, perhaps something with tofu.

Shananigans, you are very naughty for posting non-vegan eats in the vegan thread!

I'll pretend you didn't mention anything but vegan food in the vegan thread if you promise to leave it out in the future, mmmmmmmmmmkay?

I am still here in New York and have been eating well

Quinoa, kale, carrots, onions, garlic, umeboshi vinegar, nutritional yeast and spices

1 cup Silk milk, 2 apples, 1 slice multi-grain bread with almond butter, blueberry preserves and 2T. roasted pumpkin seeds

Beets, carrots, yams, quinoa, broccoli, chickpeas and spices

Lots of herbal tea, 1 cup of coffee with soy milk and agave and just enough water!

Smile hey soulbliss

I've been emailing a friend with my food journal ... but I'd much rather blog ... I love what you're doing , so if you don't mind I'm going to join in:
Yesterday I had a really bad day and overdid it with my calories (3000 calories) - I wish I could get it through my head that "when I'm tired I should go and sleep", rather than "when I'm tired I should go and eat", but today's a new day and I know everything's going to be okay!!
So here's what I'm eating today:
Morning: soy hot chocolate with sweetner + cup of cherries
Afternoon: salad + oil and vinegar + braised tofu
Dinner: pinto beans + salad + oil and vinegar + a piece of my newly baked vegan carrot cake (I'm really interested to know what this tastes like) + soy hot chocolate with sweetner

I really need to get to the grocery store and get more fruit!!!

Hope you're all having a great day!
