Since Hana decided to become a Vegan a few months back, I decided that maybe I needed to see what was out there and see how I could help her in her journey. The cool thing is I have found a lot of resources and people who have been very supportive. My cousin April took on Veganism earlier in 2016. She invited us over to her place on Christmas Day and shared an amazing meal with us. 100% vegan and 100 percent delicious.
As I watched April traverse the kitchen and prepare the meal, I realized that maybe it wasn't as complicated as I was making it in my head. I thougt the first thing I would tackle would be what to take for lunch. Of course, I usually take leftovers and such to school. Hana needs something quick that she can take on the go. As of now that consists of a peanut butter sandwich or a Tofurky and Chao Tofu "cheese". This "cheese" reminds me of provolone.
One of the biggest hurdles we had to get across was pizza night. The answer was super simple. We buy our pizzas from Papa Johns and we order one with no cheese. I personally like mine with banana peppers and mushrooms. When it arrives I sprinkle on some Daiya mozerlla "cheese" on top and Hana and I are good to go with dinner.
Check back each Tuesday to see how our journey to Veganism is going.
