Today is day 5 with 16 more to go in his 21 days of being vegan.

Today he had his same old oatmeal with coffee for breakfast.  For lunch he went to the restaurant Pei Wei  and had Thai blazing noodles with veggies and tofu, spring rolls and he ordered the fried rice without eggs.   After he paid the lady told him that the fried rice is not vegan so he gave it to his coworker.  I am proud of him for not sneaking it in anyway or thinking a little eggs are not a big deal.  When he brought the leftovers of it home I tried it and it is pretty good although blazing hot just like the title says.

For dinner we all had Mac & Cheese from a recipe I found on Alicia Silverstone’s website promoting her book The Kind Diet, Roasted Broccoli and Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins.  He was pleasantly surprised that the Mac & Cheese was pretty good although a little dry because it was over cooked.  Next time I make it I will not bake it and just stove top cook it and it would be more creamy.  We have tried a couple of Mac & “cheese” recipes that turned out horrible so it was exciting to try one that was good!

He still had a little headache but he has had a back ache and neck problems so I don’t know where that is coming from, plus our bed sucks!  I am going to do some good planning this weekend for a better week next week so with a little luck and hard work things will go even better next week.
