The Vegan Experiment

In April editors and users from the lesbian social websites SHOE and the german site PHENOMENELLE will take on a joint 30 Day Vegan Challenge.

We write about our personal experiences on being a vegan for 30 days in our BLOGS and/or BUBBLES. We just want to have fun and enjoy this community challenge. :-D

Ich freue mich auf den Vegan Challenge :-) Ich lebe seit rund 2 J ... [more]ahren vegetarisch und seit ca. 1 Jahr hab ich ein "veganes Bewusstsein" ;-). Das heisst, ich verzichte nicht komplett auf alles tierische aber reduziere was geht (ich liiiiebe halt Käse und Eier :-P). Aber es geht sicherlich noch viel mehr! Daher freue ich mich sehr, während der Challenge hoffentlich noch viel mehr Alternativen zu finden. Die Not macht ja bekanntlich erfinderisch *smile* [less]

Ich bin - ua. aus spirituellen Gründen - seit über 10 Jahren Ve ... [more]getarierin (fleisch- und fischlos, mag bzw. vertrage auch keine Eier(produkte). Ich liebe (zB Ziegen-) Käse & Joghurt, deshalb ist die Umstellung auf eine rein vegane Ernährung für mich bis jetzt nicht denkbar und möglich gewesen. Aber der Vegan Challenge macht mir Mut und stellt mir eine Herausforderung... :-) [less]
Chaky
Ich hab vor einigen Jahren schon mal vegan gelebt, bin dann aber ... [more]doch wieder zum Carnivor mutiert. Deshalb wärs eigentlich mal an der Zeit sich etwas "Grüner" zu ernähren ;-) [less]

Ich mache irrsinnig gerne am Vegan Challenge teil, weil ich schon ... [more] länger nach einem Schubs suche, der mich dazu bringt, von Teilzeitvegetarier zur Veganerin umzusteigen. Für die Zukunft sehe ich mich zwar eher als Vegetarierin, aber ich würde es grossartig finden, einen Monat vegan zu leben. Ausserdem habe ich genügend Zeit, um über meine Erfahrungen zu berichten (W-Lan daheim und seit einigen Wochen wieder Single;) ). [less]
mono-ko
Experiment "VEGAN" ... ich esse gerne Fleisch, auch wenn ich das ... [more]immer seltener mache, und auch sonst so das übliche an Milchprodukten oder eben auch Eier. Ab April ist für einen Monat jetzt erstmal Schluss damit, aber ich bin gespannt wie die Alternativen schmecken und ob ich sogar etwas leckeres finde, was ich auch nach der Challenge gern essen werde. Mehr über mich und meine Motivation am Vegan Challenge mitzumachen, kannst du in meinem Blog nachlesen. [less]

Ich bin zwar nicht besonders aktiv in der shoe-Community, aber ic ... [more]h muss sagen, die vegan challenge reizt mich sehr. Dafür kann ich mir vorstellen, Shoe öfter zu nutzen und auch zu bloggen ;-) [less]
FotoundFilm
Ich habe Interesse an dieser Challenge und Lust mich mal einen Mo ... [more]nat lang vegan zu ernähren! Ich bin Fleischesserin. [less]

Mache gerne beim Vegan Challenge mit. Was darf ich dann alles Ess ... [more]en? ;-))) [less]
Domischer
Ich bin Fleischesserin. Immer wieder habe ich probiert, vegetaris ... [more]ch zu leben, aber immer wieder bin ich schwach geworden. Auf die Idee vegan zu leben, bin ich nie gekommen, aber ich freue mich auf Leute, die mich auf neue Ideen bringen. Ich freue mich sehr auf diese Herausforderung. [less]

#vegan I have been a vegan for over 2 years and love it! My favorite dishes are tofu scramble, green smoothies, beans and greans with quinoa, and vegan pizza. Good luck on the vegan challenge!

Just had to update: Kitty cat who was upset when she no longer could share the cow milk from my cereal bowl during #vegan challenge, and who hated the soy milk replacement, this morning took a liking to vanilla almond milk! :)

A coworker surprised me tonight by asking how my #vegan diet went! I didn't expect anyone to remember. I told her it went great & I was going to stay vegan. She looked at me with great big eyes full of concern & asked, "But what will you eat?" :)

Finally got around to trying the matter tofu frozen entre which replaces the matter paneer (cheese) entre I love. I'm happy w/ how much the tofu is like the cheese, but they left out the best part - chickpeas - in the #vegan version and added more ginger.

Still completely in love with my #vegan taco salad. Made two batches last week & got up early this morn to get another started. Today I added bi-color corn. Next time will be mashed chickpeas. Could put this on a whole wheat wrap as a "burrito" too.

Real english breakfast, #vegan version of it: porridge on water. Tastes great! That was my main meal for breakfast this month.

Tried farro (wheat), cooked up like oatmeal and topped with a sprinkle of sugar. Very good, especially loved the texture which was almost like pasta. Have a desire to cook up some kind of thick, warm, cinnamon-peach topping for it next time. #vegan

My Epiphany during Vegan Challenge Month
I was pretty chuffed with myself for about 2 years now for having "woken up" and living my life a lot more consciously. Giving up meat & subsequently becoming a half vegan. I stopped buying water in PET bottles after having seen a documentary Bottled Life More

SHOE Vegan Challenge - April 24

I am someone who survives on cow milk (3 gallons a week), eggs, c ... [more]heese, and white sugar products. However, I am willing to be a participant in the challenge. I am curious about how difficult this will be for me yet also wondering if I will love it and be surprised. Also my birthday is April 10 and I usually make a nice roast beef and cake or pie for myself on that day. This will be an interesting challenge for me all around! [less]

I love cooking. I love food. I crave chicken. I love to tell peop ... [more]le about good food! I would love to blog about trying to go Vegan for 30 days. I am a bisexual activist, currently on a break from activism and figuring the next thing I want to get involved in. I'm dabbling in Spoken Word Poetry in the meanwhile. While I'm at home, I've taken over the kitchen and cook for my mother and me. I do a lot of I have a lot of ideas for meals I would like to cook. I have been wanting to try and see if I could give up meat - I don't think I can.. but I think that this would be the perfect challenge to push me. [less]

The only reason why I thought about participating was because the ... [more] title was qualified with the word 'experiment' in it. However, I do feel that being a vegetarian, I am on an easy road :-D But you know what the real challenge would be in this, that is if one takes it seriously, 30 days of abstinence :-P Have a wonderful day ahead!
