The Weekend Vegan Challenge: Would you eat vegan for the weekend?
Over at our sister site, Feelgood Style, Liz Thompson is challenging folks to take a Weekend Vegan Challenge! Are you in?
Here’s the challenge, in Liz’s words:
Are you up for a vegan weekend challenge? Try eating only vegan this weekend. Here are some great vegan recipes to get you started. Or simply try eliminating dairy this weekend and add meat to your don’t eat list next weekend. A two day challenge may be just what it takes to test the waters, see how eating a vegan diet makes you feel, and whether or not the switch is right for you.
What do you think, guys? I know a lot of you are vegan or vegetarian already….if you’re not fully vegan, would you consider taking the plunge for a couple of days, to see how you like it?
When I went vegan it took a couple of months to really get the swing of feeding myself. At first, I basically was eating the same foods, just sans the eggs and dairy. This meant I lost a little weight initially, but once I discovered the wonders of vegan baking and creamy cashew sauces, that all evened out.
If you need some great vegan recipe resources for your vegan weekend, here are a few of my favorites:
- Our vegan recipe archive
- The PPK
- Fat Free Vegan
- Manifest Vegan – also gluten free
- Cakemaker to the Stars – another gluten free vegan blog
- Glue and Glitter – this is my personal site, and I share lots of vegan recipes over there: some healthy, some not at all healthy
Are you planning to take the challenge? I’d love to hear how it goes for you! You can also read more about what motivated Liz to take on this challenge over at Feelgood Style!
