In case you missed it, we’re in the middle of Veg Week 2016! It’s a pledge you make to go meat free (vegetarian) or animal bi-product free (vegan) for one week. This can be easy for some, but for other folks, it can really force them to change up their routine habits.
The Wholeshare Support Team decided to take this pledge and go vegan for the week. As a whole, it’s resulted in massive amounts of veggie soup in the office fridge, hummus, veggie sandwiches, and black coffee. It was a great idea to do it together – no one in the office is vegan, and the support and meal planning has made it MUCH easier.
I’ve found some things really challenging so far. My go-to breakfast of eggs-over-easy has gone out the window. I swapped in old-fashioned oats cooked with water, cinnamon, brown sugar and a pinch of salt. I can definitely see this as a permanent breakfast option. My other issue has been with snacks… I usually can count on my 2PM pick-me-up Hershey kiss (or 5). I have resisted so far, and hope to make it to the end of the week.
I wanted to share a wicked yummy veggie sandwich I proudly assembled this past Tuesday for lunch.
Whole Wheat bread (vegan)
Cucumber (thin cut)
Tomato (thin cut)
Avocado (thin cut)
Favorite Hummus (mine is Ithaca hummus from Regional Access)
Toast your bread and spread hummus on both sides. Layer your cucumber, tomato, avocado and shredded carrots onto your bread. Add some solid pinches of salt and pepper, and top with a bit of arugula. This sandwich was so good – it was super satisfying and I felt great after. This sandwich is going to be added to my lunch rotation.
