Vegan For A Day

Tonight Natalie and I are going to Govinda's for dinner and to see Shopgirl. So as a challenge today we are eating vegan (even though Govinda's is vegetarian, two birds, one stone).

It's 8.32am and I'm craving cottage cheese on crackers, but I'm having a peach and tea. Last night I made Neil Perry's gazpacho recipe and that will serve as lunch.

Eh bien, continuons...

Oh - but on the plus side you can have plenty of hot chocolate! It is a joy to see all the exotic fruits - lychees, persimons, rambutans - the smell and taste is pure summer.

ah yes, the hot chocolate... we're going to france on saturday, skiing, and I plan to drink a lot of the stuff, but if push came to shove I think I'd rather have your fresh fruit!

Hmmm... I know its only for a day, but as I said to you when I was in Sydney, I don't think that I could do it. No cheese. No milk. No meat.

OK, I can go a day without meat, and even did the whole vegetarian thing for a year when I was younger - but no cheese or milk?!?! oh the horror!!

Have fun at Shopgirl tonight - very cute and sweet movie.

Summary so far:

Lunch of gazpacho with corn chips was good, but I was so hungry I ate half a huge bag of corn chips. Vegan yes, healthy no.

Now I'm irritable and craving chocolate. I know it's because I can't have it, as I rarely eat chocolate during the day, but I want to put my fist through the wall!

Will be strong.

The movie room at Govinda's looks incredible! Wish we had something like that where I live.

It's a Sydney institution but I've never been, so really looking forward to it!
