Change the World Wednesday – 9th Oct

chiliesvRolls round fast, doesn’t it?

CTWW again.

First up, an update.

Remember those little red chilies from the week before, well, here they are again. This time picked and in olive oil. There are a lot more to ripen and add.

I should get two jars like this from one bush, and there are two more bushes coming on.

Oops, the photo is not the best, but you get the idea. Maybe the photo feels like me this morning… a little out of focus.

Must need more coffee.

The tomatoes are all but finished; I think only three more to ripen, and that’s it. The bush gets pulled for the compost heap.

This week’s CTWW.

A vegan kick.

This week prepare at least one vegan meal. Vegan means no animal products … no chicken, pork, fish, beef … not even milk, cheese, or eggs. I encourage you to consider whole foods and avoid processed items. If you’re feeling ambitious, go for a whole day or even a week … make a switch for a month and you’ll be my hero!

 

WANT MORE? HERE YOU GO … If you’ve embraced this challenge, or have already made it a lifestyle, please share tips and ideas. Leave a comment on this post or use the link-up below to share vegan recipes and/or articles about incorporating plant-based foods into your diet. Posts can be your own or your favorites from around the blogosphere.

Recipe on La Cocina de Anita I leave out the egg

You all know that I am not a vegan, not even a vegetarian. Various meats and all dairy produce are a part of my diet. I will participate though being a beefless week. Today for lunch I had already planned Gnocchi with a homemade tomato and herb sauce. I think that qualifies.

So, while I am a confirmed carnivore, I do have meals occasionally that are vegan or vegetarian. For me that is normal.

Update:

Lunch was awesome.

I have also added a link on Reduce Footprints for a vegan meal that I sent to Small.

  1. It is great to be different, being vegetarian, or even vegan, for a short time. I call such activities insight roles, and they offer new opportunities, insights and creativity, sometimes I might like a thing I tried and will adopt it into my life.

  2. Go vegan! Yay! Actually, I’m not strictly vegan but I do like the philosophy and mostly try to avoid animal products. I do occasionally eat fish and eggs but tend not to consume dairy products or other meat.

    If you want a very simple and healthy vegan option for when you can’t be bothered cooking, then you can’t beat roast vegetables and baked beans. I just love roasted pumpkin and beans of all kinds are delicious. You can buy the canned variety of course but you can also make them yourself with kidney beans or whichever you prefer. Beans are the perfect food.
