For lunch I made brown rice with stir-fried Gardein “chicken,” zucchini, squash, broccoli, and cauliflower sauteed in light extra virgin olive oil, with black and red pepper, and low-sodium soy sauce. Then I shredded some vegan cheddar almond “cheese” on top.
For dinner I, of course, made a veggie burger, Boca original vegan to be specific, and mixed things up by making eggplant french fries.
For dessert I tried the So Delicious coconut milk ice cream sandwiches in banana split flavor! <3
@CarolineS AW! I’m sorry! That really DOES sound uncomfortable. Well, maybe by your example, they’ll decide to rethink eating meat. And that was probably very smart of you not to make a fight out of it. That just makes people defensive. Congrats on not caving to the pressure of eating meat though! *vegan hug!*
:[ My fourth of July was uncomfortable. I went to my boyfriend’s house [Non-Vegetarian/Vegan] to find that he was chosen this year to grill the meat…
I try my best to not be overbearing and just sat near him while he cooked… I don’t like making big deals and getting into arguments… so all I ate was grilled corn and rice
Everyone else ate meat.. it made me gag a little.. :/
They started questioning me and talking about kids and how I had to let my kids know both sides and stuff… but I just tried changing the subject
:O I want to make a vegan or at least vegetarian meal for everyone.. but I feel no one would want to try it just knowing that it is.. :\
