Updated 7/1/15: It has become increasingly difficult to find clean pitta breads in the supermarkets which is such a shame because if it wasn’t for one little added preservative then these would be SO handy for clean eaters. These days I purchase my pitta bread from a local wholesaler or PlanetOrganic.com.
I’ve just finished a 21 Day Vegan Cleanse. It was a challenge that was presented to me and I took it, thinking it would be a fun experience and relatively easy. Oh how I was wrong! The first 4 days were fine, but after that I was ready to quit.
Thanks to my supportive Husband and Brother in law, I carried on the challenge with the goal of just finishing something I had committed to doing, and I am really glad I did.
I lost 7 lbs and found a new appreciation for the food that I eat, as well as creating some delicious vegan recipes that I can use in my everyday life. It also enabled me to think carefully about the food choices I make and way. Although I don’t plan on being a fully fledged vegan, I have a new admiration for, and understanding of vegans and will always include vegan recipes in my diet.
The day before my vegan cleanse finished I popped to Waitrose to pick up a few supplies and whilst I was there I realised that I could choose whatever food I wanted to eat the for the following day. To my surprise, what ended up in my basket was goats cheese, honey & spelt bread, set honey and eggs. – So I guess I could be a vegetarian!
This scrummy quick lunchtime treat was just what my 21 day vegan body needed.
Thank You Goats.
