June 2013 will turn out to either be the month I was vegan or my first month as a vegan. Here’s a list of my meals and desserts from that month. Snacks aren’t included. (In case you’re wondering, I eat quite a bit of fruit, usually as snacks.) Beverages aren’t included either (but are pretty much always water, coffee, beer, or homemade green juice).
Note: Most things I eat are organic, but I’m not going to say that all the time because nothing makes you sound like more of an asshole than saying “organic this” and “organic that” all the time.
I’ll include (probably crappy) photos when I have them and links to recipes when possible. If something is from a cookbook, I’ll tell you that.
Welcome to my vegan journey! I hope it’s fun!
