Good Morning WORLD! My name is Michelle (Mish) and I am VEGAN!

That’s right kids..VEGAN 4 A WEEK! Monday 16th Nov- Monday 23 Nov

veganweek2
It all started with this announcement and a little LOT of work behind the scenes with Katy @ SillyTaterTot to coordinate the masses for this week.

Let’s talk about WHY I would do this?

  • I like challenges
  • I watched Food Inc. and will never eat meat again which is industrial grown if I can
  • Do I really need meat to survive?
  • How do vegans survive if they are budding athletes?
  • I like learning

WHAT is a Vegan? Do Vegans only eat apples and carrots? (source)

Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar and some wines. Most vegans also avoid the use of all products tested on animals, as well as animal-derived non-food products, such as leather, fur and wool.

    I’m excited for Thurs! I already have a few recipes in mind! Tried one this morning for Fat Free Pumpkin Raisin Biscuits from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. You can check out my post tomorrow – they were great!

    I love that you added the vegan for the day. I wanted to do this but don’t have the time to do it all week. One day is totally doable.

    I’m excited to see your eats for the week.

    Hi!
    I just stumbled on your blog today. I think it’s great that you’re eating Vegan for a week. I’ll join in for one day. I recently started eating Vegetarian, so it will be a great challenge for me.
    I noticed the link to the Girls on the Run race…I live in the Willamette Valley. Good luck on your vegan challenge!

    how crazy! i went to bed yesterday with my mind made up that i’d be vegan this week (i’ve been a vegetarian for about 8 years). then i saw angela at oh she glows post a link here. so i was planning to do it and didn’t even know it was an event. looking forward to it!

    I would love to join this challenge, I’m having such a hard time converting to veganism. I used to be, now I am just vegetarian and am trying quite hard to cut out all forms of animal products but it is taking a while.
    Sorry for the babble, I found this due to the link on Angela’s blog. I would love to announce this on my blog also if that is ok?

    I’ m in-vegan for a day-great idea-I have been moving more and more towards a plant based diet and trying to lose all the diet talk that we need protein from animal sources-
