Day 10 vegan.
Today has been tough. Nothing to do with being vegan, that’s been easy!
Everything else has tested my every shred of patience and calm. Back story – my car has been off the road for almost five months (Thanks to Arnold Clark – may HE rest in peace) and today I got it back, fixed!!! Woohoo, I hear you scream with joy. Well, don’t rejoice too much, within 3 hours it was flashing error messages again. So, we’re not much further forward and the cycle continues!
In other news, our wee blind dug, Davey, has a corneal abrasion and, despite throwing money at it with medical treatments, it doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
It means that soon we’ll be faced with a decision to try surgical treatment, which has to be an absolute last resort due to his grade six heart murmer.
Despite all this, I managed a lovely evening with Bette. We went swimming and she had her dinner from a very well known fast food restaurant. Bette is a vegetarian, and although eats mostly vegan with us, she did have a cheese roll tonight. I’m not sure how much cheese is actually in the orange cheese from these establishments though. 😉
Dinner tonight was fajitas. In all the years I’ve been vegetarian I have never tried frys strips. I cannot believe how amazing they are.
The strips are super ‘meaty’ (well what I can remember of meat) and they taste gorgeous, even without seasoning.
Something I did learn today…I really do not like Alpro GO on yoghurt. It’s sickly sweet and has the oddest, funky taste. Does anyone have amazing yoghurt suggestions? I was always a Greek yoghurt person, rather than flavours.
Time for a wee oatly cappuccino before bed, for a well earned sleep, before starting the madness again tomorrow.
