Day Eighteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 18
Eat Drink
Wake Up 8 oz of water
Breakfast Oatmeal with a variety of toppings OR 2 pieces of whole wheat toast topped with a nut butter of your choosing and a side of fruit (apple orange or banana) 8 oz of water
Morning 8 oz of water before lunch (I always keep a water bottle handy)
Lunch Leftover Quinoa Pesto with Vegetables 8 oz of water
Afternoon If you're hungry at any time throughout the day have a handful of almonds and some grapes 8 oz of water before dinner
Dinner Black Beans and Rice from My Whole Food Life. This makes a huge amount so it should still give you plenty for two and lunch tomorrow(and possibly the next day!) 8 oz of water
Exercise At least 16 oz of water after exercise to rehydrate

Now get ready to feast your eyes on my new favorite VEGAN DESSERT!

It’s AHHHH-mazing. I’m working out the details still but recipe will come soon. I wish I could eat it every night. In fact, I’ve made it a few times already…

I’m not for sure how vegan the chocolate chips are though. I bought Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips that don’t have any milk or milk products in them but they are made in a plant that processes those items so the package said “may contain milk.” Use at your own discretion!

But I have a confession. I cheated. I was at a potluck and couldn’t resist trying some desserts….

My shameful dessert plate

I shared some of this with Daniel but I mostly ate it. It was amazing and I don’t regret it though I’m sure there’s some egg and milk in that cake doughnut and probably some in the lemon bar in the back. As for the Indian dessert up front, I have no idea what’s in it but it was tasty and probably the only vegan dessert out of the three. But everyone needs a cheat day. If you don’t, you’re my hero!

I actually didn’t make the Black Beans and Rice for dinner since we went to the Potluck but it was part of my meal plan for that day. So if you need a dinner idea, I highly suggest it.

For exercise I followed Day Five of the Five Day Workout Plan.

And I did more stretching! It’s SUPER important. So do it!
