The Second Day of The Vegan Attempt

Hello there.
Today was my second day as a vegan. It's not as diffucult as it seems I could say. Plus it keeps me from diving into a pool of junk food and all kinds of rubbish that you can't even call food. Well, though I have to admit that I had to make a small exception today. I, being vegan is pretty much the same as Sam fasting. Some things cannot be compromised. Such as gummy bears and jelly beans. They are made from gelatine, so they have animal origin. They are not Halal for a vegan diet, but I ate a few of them today. Not too many, but still, I broke the law.

The breakfast today was almost the same as yesterday, salad and bread. I woke up very late today, so I did not have lunch. As for dinner, I made boiled bean salad, something we call "piyaz". It's a Turkish dish, probably of Greek origin, but let's say it's Turkish. It is very filling, thanks to the beans and very light and easy to make, perfect for hot summer evenings.


1 can of white beans
1 large or middle sized tomato
1 cucumber, or half of it if it's huge like those we had in Belgium. lol
Half an onion
Parsley, as much as you'd like
A few drops of lemon juice
Hot peppers, if you like it. I don't add that.
EVOO (Extra-virgin olive oil :) )

Drain the beans and wash thoroughly. I read that the water they come inside is not very good for health. Cut the tomato and cucumber in similar size with the beans you have. Slice the onion so that you have semicircular slices.

We will use a Turkish trick on the onions. Once you slice them, mix them with salt and press them with the bottom of a glass. They will get softened and leave a bit of their juice. Then wash them and drain them.This will let them have a milder taste and they won't smell as much nor will give you heartburn.

Cop the parsley and mix them all in a large bowl. Add the seasoning as you wish and serve. Bon appetit.

The First Day of My Vegan Diet

Hello guys,

I switched to English for this post, because I want this to be above nations. Anyway. I saw a post yesterday about the mass production factories of dairy, and it was painful to read about how animals are treated in such places, not to mention they are slaughtered once they are of no use anymore. It gave me an idea. The idea that I can change. At least, I could try to change.

So I decided to give myself a 3-day vegan treatment. I'll follow a vegan diet for 3 days. If I can do that for 3 days, then I'll go for 7 days.
I hope to go on for a year, with smaller goals at first.

3 days>7 days>2 weeks>1 month>3 months>6 months>1 year

I thought it would be harder, but the more I read and learn about it the easier it gets to find vegan food in the markets and out.

My breakfast today consisted of salad with olive oil, non-dairy bread and watermelon.
Lunch was juice, ice tea and some crackers I found at the discount market.
And I cooked some awesome spaghetti with vegetables and nuts for dinner.

It's very hard to type long texts here on my iPod, but I would like to share my recipe with you, just in case there are people out there looking for vegan recipes on the interwebz.

Vegan Spaghetti with Vegetable&Peanut Sauce

2 Red Peppers(not hot, just red)
1 Eggplant
1 Tomato
1/4 of a small Cabbage
5 Pieces of Garlic
Half an onion
1 Teaspoon of Sugar
Soy Sauce

Barilla<3 br="br" spaghetti="spaghetti">
Boil the pasta as it's described on the label.

In a large teflon/non-sticky pan, start frying the peppers with some olive oil. Then add the eggplant that you've cut in whichever shape you wish. Once they are fried enough, add balsamico, soya sauce, onions and sugar. Let it absorbe and caramelize. Then add the cabbage and tomatoes. Finally add the spices and the garlic in small pieces. In the end, add as much peanuts as you want.

When you decide the sauce is ready, mix it with pasta&enjoy.

Any fruit for dessert. Yummy.
