10 Lessons Learned from Vegan Mondays (so far!)

As I mentioned a few posts back, I’m experimenting with veganism, having long known about the health benefits, and more importantly, performance benefits for athletes. And whilst I’m only about 3 weeks into my foray into the Plant-Based lifestyle, I feel like I’m learning a lot! So here are my findings so far!
1. It’s so much harder than I first expected- but it’s just a matter of getting your head into the right space.

2. But, it doesn’t feel as restricted as I’d expected.

3. So many products have dairy or egg snuck into them.

4. My biggest downfall: milk in my coffee. I looove my coffee, and it’s hard to be strict with myself first thing in the morning!

5. Avocado is king. Same goes for black beans.

6. It’s really hard to buy vegan food on the go.

7. A lot of people have very strong opinions on veganism!

8. Including where I get my protein from.

9. Vegan protein powders can be used as a kind of insurance policy.

10. Praise sweet baby Jesus, my favourite popcorn is vegan-friendly.

  1. Interesting. I’ve been veggie for about 30 years, but I’ve only just dropped milk from my coffee two weeks ago. Have you tried soy/coconut/hazelnut milk? I wouldn’t miss eggs, though might miss cheese.

    You get the protein stuff as a veggie too, I’ve twice been told by morbidly obese men that I’m always ill (one of whom was my manager and knew I was hardly ever off sick). I’m now eating more seeds and nuts than I used to

    Pret is good for both veggie and vegan options, but beyond that could be difficult.

    Good luck with everything.

  2. Try a non-dairy creamer. OMG yes if you dont plan your meals out it is really hard to grab something on a busy schedule. And the protien question!!!! I was a vegetarian for over 5 years, sometimes vegan and yes that was the question all the time. I continually vowed to hurt the next person who asked about my protien.
