Day two: Post a picture of today’s breakfastI have to admit, as much as I vary the foods I eat, I'm a routine breakfast eater. Usually, I made a big cup of hot chocolate and ate some fruit once I arrive at work. On the weekends I either do the same, eat a big breakfast with scrambled egg together with the BF or skip breakfast and start the day with lunch. The last option often applies when I was out partying and slept until 1pm or later. One might say I do not skip breakfast but just eat my lunch as breakfast...
This week my breakfast will probably contain of the bread I mentioned yesterday or a hot chocolate when I find out how to make it with almond milk without being too sweet. Plus some fruits which keep my stomach from growling until 12am.
Another thing I noticed is that vegans really need to watch their stuff. When we went shopping for this week on Friday, we needed toothpaste. Did you know that they sell toothpaste with pearls in them? Like real pearls from clams? I didn't. I also checked my shampoo and soap, I have one each that I can use because they are vegan. I usually use a shampoo with lanolin that helps against my dry and itchy scalp but contains lanolin which is an animal product (sheep wool fat). I had to omit my iron supplements because the tablet contains lactose. The chips we wanted to buy contain dried milk powder. Why this is necessary is beyond me... Vegan life style - depending on how strict you are of course!- takes a lot of effort. Especially since there is no consistent labeling. The peanut flips we ended up buying were vegan. Without a special label.
full wheat and rye bread
vegan spread with tomato and garlic (Zwergenstreich)
Popcorn (we are heading to watch Skyfall)
Fries and apple danish from McDonalds (we didn't have much time between work and Skyfall ;) )
