Yes, JD I eat fruit also but love a late night snack while laughing at Grog-Humor and a cold glass of milk. Thus, Sugar-less snacks.

Oh I am! I'm not a vegan but I lean very close to a plant based diet, I'm on my phone right now, but I bought daikon radish, long beans, employees, shimeji oyster and king oyster mushrooms for Tom yum, and tofu for red curry stir fry.

I even bought soybeans to make my own soymilk for coffee

That doesn't sound very vegan.   ;)

To be fair employees are soulless husks without meat.

The bones are good for stock though

I'm two weeks in now and I'll be honest...the transition has been very, very easy. Much easier than I would've thought.

To understand that you'd need to understand how I ate previously.

I was mad on chocolate and cheese mostly. Savoury things not so. Meat, yes - but normal amounts really - no going mad on it. But chocolate I would eat huge amounts. I'm talking 250g in any one go - almost every day - and not always on it's own. And cheese...man - cheese. I'd make two sandwiches, with nice thick cut cheese - whilst cutting a few slices to eat as I was making my sandwich.

So I thought going vegan - cutting out cheese and dairy (so a lot of chocolate) was going to be very tough. Truth is - it really hasn't. My eating has adapted very well.

For chocolate I've rediscovered my love of dark chocolate. I used to love Bourneville chocolate as a kid...and it's back. The good thing about dark chocolate is it's so rich, you can't eat too much of it...and I don't. I bought a 200g bar of Bourneville chocolate last Monday and I still had some left at the end of the week. My chocolate intake is hugely down.

I have no cheese anymore - there's not even a half decent substitute for cheese - though at a push I will use vegan cheese to grate on my pizza...but no more cheese sandwiches.

As for meat - nope. Not missing it in the slightest so far. Or fish. Or eggs.

A couple of things which are quite difficult...

As I said, no cheese is hard to take. Also the other thing is seeing something that you'd like and looking at the back and finding it has milk or egg in it.

One hugely frustrating thing is the lack of easy identification. You really have to look at the ingredients...which is hard when you're shopping...turning everything round to look at the ingredients.

Overall though I'm very happy with the change. And as a nice little bonus, I've lost 6lbs.
