Lately, I’ve been losing my motivation in this challenge. Maybe it’s because I’ve already “fallen off the wagon”, and it’s easy to just go back to old habits. I’m still doing my best to eat Vegan as much as possible, though.
I actually had a chance to try a new recipe this week, and in turn, use a product that I had been meaning to try for a while that a lot of Vegan recipes call for.
(Disclaimer: I was not compensated for my review on this product. These are my honest opinions.)
Red Star Nutritional Yeast – Nutritional yeast is great source of B vitamins. It also gives a “cheesy” flavor to foods. I was skeptical about the claims of cheesy flavor, but I was pleasantly surprised by the taste! It’s not meant to be a substitute for cheese in a dish like lasagna, but it gives a little flavor to dishes like the Chili Mac I made earlier this week.
I also went to the new Trader Joe’s that opened here last week. I was surprised at how small the store was! Unfortunately, it was our last errand of the day, and the baby was headed for a meltdown. It was very crowded, and I didn’t get a chance to do a lot of browsing.
I’m hoping to try at least one new recipe again this coming week. I can’t believe how fast this 30 days has gone! Look for my vegan challenge week 4/wrap up next Sunday!
