Days 32 – 39: Nervous

Hello! Hoi! Bonjour!

Hallo Katharina šŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by.

I have been vegan for a month and a week now and I really have no real problems with it at home. Veganism is now fully incorporated into my daily life and I hardly notice the transition anymore. Besides finding out that my friend Katharina somehow managed to discover this cleverly disguised blog šŸ˜‰ , not much has happened on the Vegan side of my life.

Little changes

I traded my usual breakfast choices in for a morning smoothie which actually keeps my satisfied until the afternoon. I have no real recipe. I just throw whatever I can find in my freezer (kale, spinach etc.) in the mixer, add Baobab, Moringa, green tea and a little bit of ground turmeric and pour in some water (from the bottle). And start the mixer.

“Becky” at work is the only person to have given me snarky comments about being vegan. My brother told me not to eat as much polenta as it is “just as bad as eating pure sugar” and that is about it. Considering all the horror stories I heard about, I guess it is safe to assume they were exaggerating. 99.99999 % of the people really don’t give a shit.

Nervous about my first ‘real’ trip as a vegan

Tomorrow, I will be flying to Milano, Italy and stay for the night. I was nervous about not being able to find anything delicious to eat and not being able to resist the urge to eat authentic, real Italian Spaghetti Carbonara. As usual: Preparation is key. Luckily, I did find a lot of vegan restaurants on Happy Cow and I am really excited to try at least one or two fully-vegan restaurants there. The Cologne airport (CGN) is a joke when it comes to food choices after security and I hardly doubt they have anything vegan… I will make sure to drink my breakfast smoothie right before we leave and pack some nuts for the flight. I am very excited about finally going to Milano šŸ™‚ I’ll keep you updated šŸ™‚

Lots of love ā¤
