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 habe Interesse an dieser Challenge und Lust mich mal einen Mo ... [more]nat lang vegan zu ernähren! Ich bin Fleischesserin. [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]

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]
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]
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]

Mache gerne beim Vegan Challenge mit. Was darf ich dann alles Ess ... [more]en? ;-))) [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]
sunci
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]

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.

For lunch, #vegan hot fruit soup. Yum! Mandarin oranges, peaches, pears, dark sweet cherries, mango, lemon. http://m1297.photobucket.com/albumview/albums/kscha2017/Image04222013142559_zps2cee2b8c.jpg.html?newest=1

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

Spent several hours soaking & cooking beans last night. Made #vegan taco salad for breakfast today! Pinto & black beans, black olives, tomatoes & jalapeños, avocado & onion, lettuce & carrot, a little salt & lime juice heaped atop corn tortillas! Yum!

Think I've committed to #vegan diet beyond April. Just got back from grocery. Only needed a few items but ended up w/ a cartload. Have enough dry beans, frozen veg, canned fruit, & bags of grains to last thru May at least. Found tahini & lingonberries!

I have noticed that since the #vegan challenge started, television is showing far more cheesy pizza commercials than usual. One is playing right now!

Forgot to mention, I've also lost 7 lbs. since starting #vegan challenge! My only real complaint so far is that instead of my tummy rumbling when hungry, I now get waves of strong nausea until I can manage to get a little bit of food down, then I'm fine.

Okay. #vegan chocolate cupcakes are yummy! Wouldn't suspect they're vegan if I didn't know. Moister than non-vegan too, which is good. Used the Ellen recipe - http://www.ellentv.com/recipes/2012/11/29/joyful-heart-chocolate-chip-cupcakes/

Just got a batch of #vegan pumpkin muffins out of oven. Taste just like non-vegan ones w/ milk & eggs, but moist! So yummy! Got recipe from a vegan cookbook at library. Tomorrow I try vegan chocolate cupcakes for my b-day. :)

Today I'm trying sweet potatoes for the first time. They're in the oven right now. I guess the default way to prepare them around here is mashed w/ butter and brown sugar, but I just cut them into chunks and am roasting them coated in olive oil. #vegan

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]

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!

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]
