Vegan Challenge

Postby Henry Marczak » Sat May 20, 2017 9:32 am

Nowadays there's a lot of trend in being Vegan, and even Atlas Ltd now has Pea Protein in their Store.
I eat plenty of Vegan food and many of my friends are Vegan or Vegetarian. So me and my wife have decided to take on the 30 day Vegan challenge for the month of June. The weeks leading up to it have been about using up everything non-Vegan, certainly a lot closer label reading this weekends shopping.

So a couple week have gone by on this experiement, Henry. How's it going? Anything to report? For myself, I get the value of fruits and veggies, and I'm not a bit meat eater, still I do love a steak now and then. And of course seafood and chicken. I've always leaned toward variety in moderation. I'm not one for rules to enslave us. Same for the Atlas program -- I often draw on it, but there are days when I do maybe 2 exercises, 3 sets, for a total of 7 minutes. That's it. Stimulates me some and is a good break from trying to do too much.
Best,
Jim

I have been a vegan fan since 1970 partly because of my Yoga practice, then again around '73 watching the old Kung Fu show with David Carradine. Over the years I've taken stabs at it but this time with so many of my friends being Vegan me and the wife are into it. I know a lot more about nutrition and there's so much info to guide you these days.

Just to try we bought a frozen vegan pizza that had no allergens, gluten free etc. It was a deluxe type with vegan mock meat which was interesting, not the usual gluten soy stuff but a pea protein mock meat which actually wasn't bad at all.

Have tried some vegan breakfast style sausage which was fairly good but that was your gluten and soy. I'm not bothered by soy or gluten and drink unsweetened soy milk which is organic and non-GMO.

The soy milk ingredients are...
FILTERED WATER, WHOLE ORGANIC SOYBEANS, CALCIUM CARBONATE, NATURAL FLAVOURS, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, RIBOFLAVIN (B2), VITAMIN D2, VITAMIN B12, THIAMINE (B1), NIACIN (B3), VITAMIN B6, PANTOTHENATE (B5).

Generally eat a variety of beans, tofu, tempeh and peas rather than much mock meat.

I've passed 30 days, no problem going to the end of June and beyond.

Went to the Asian supermarket last weekend mainly because they have a huge selection of imported foods and wanted to get Polish vegetarian Bigos (cabbage stew) they have in jars. What I found also was a soy beverage with only - Ingredients: Water, Soybeans (Non-GMO), Sodium Bicarbonate (Acidity Regulator), 1/2 the price of the fortified soy beverage. The fresh wide rice noodle is fantastic, fried a little = delicious.
