Today marks the spot that I’m a third of the way through my dairy-free adventure. People keep asking me if I have more energy – the answer is no, not yet. I have noticed that my tummy is less bloated, and I have lost 4lbs! Added bonus.
My skin is still dry, but the redness on my arms has disappeared. My eyes are still dry but I think that might take a bit more time.
What I ate
More granary toast and peanut butter for me! Washed down with a black coffee and a banana as a snack later on. Spot the cool Pantone mug.
I decided to get a little more adventurous for dinner. My husband has been away in the US and Canada on business, so I decided to make homemade pizzas (alright, I cheated on the bases). Whilst shopping in Morrisons earlier, I spotted some Violife vegan cheese. I slipped it in the basket, as it would be a good additional to top my pizza.
My pizza base was covered with passata, the covered with sliced tomato, red pepper, black olives, chestnut mushrooms and grated Violife vegan cheese.
In terms of grating the cheese onto a pizza, it was okay. The cheese didn’t melt as ordinary cheese would, but I think it would be perfect in a sandwich or on crackers. I’m going to sample lots of dairy-free / vegan cheeses and let you know what I think is best. Blog post coming soon!
