my vegan week part 4

Day four
Today has not been such a good day, I have had terrible stomach cramps for pretty much the entire day.  Part of the reason behind a week long dairy free diet, was to see if this helped my digestion, but now it appears that bread is also a culprit!  So that's one more thing I will now need to eat less of.  This resulted in me not eating any lunch today, I didn't feel hungry and couldn't face it, I just wanted to curl up into a ball!  The stomach cramps did ease off though, just in time to visit our friends for dinner :)
Breakfast
A bowl of bran flakes with vanilla soya milk (I know, an odd choice, I wouldn't recommend it) topped with linseed.

Lunch
Nothing :(
Oh wait, two cups of water.

A banana when I arrived home from work.

Dinner 
Homemade (by my friend Ivona!) lentil curry with pitta bread (I braved eating some wheat!).
Followed by homemade (by me!) berry crumble with soya custard and soya ice cream, mmm!
A glass of water.

We had a really lovely evening tonight, our friends invited us round when I said I was being vegan for a week, saying that they had a vegan recipe that they were cooking for dinner one evening.  I politely provided the pudding!  A very simple crumble (substituting the butter for Pure Sunflower spread), with a choice of soya custard or soya ice cream (or both!)
I hadn't tried soya custard before, and I thought it was yummy!  It was more runny and less sweet than Ambrosia custard, but that isn't a bad thing!  The soya ice cream went down really well too!  I have had it a few times before, and love it!  It's definitely worth a try if you are yet to!  I brought some from Sainsburys for about £2.00.

I'm really starting to get into this dairy free diet now, I wonder how long I can keep it up!

  1. Oh no! I also find eating too much white bread makes my tummy not happy. Spelt bread isn't gluten free but apparently some people can more easily digest the weaker gluten of it. Otherwise there are a range of flours out there: how exciting you get to experiment (I'm a silver lining type girl) :)
