Vegan Mistakes and Heartbreaks!

Greetings, OMies! Today is day 11 since I have become Vegan; I sure didn’t expect to be perfect! A few days ago I was packing husband road snacks and happened to check the ingredients of this gluten-free brownie brittle. It is delicious, by the way.

Context: A few weeks ago, I made Josh a dairy-free, gluten-free ice cream cake for his birthday! In all reality, I ate the entire thing for myself. Regardless, I wrote off that the dessert was Vegan, but I did not realize that the brownie crumble I put on top of the ice cream cake has EGGS. Eggs has been the hardest thing for me to replace! I don’t love using chia seeds or bananas for egg replacement; if anyone has suggestions for egg substitutions please let me know!

It must have been Day 6 0r 7 of my Vegan quest when I ate these brownies! Alas, I will not purchase them for myself again and sent them away with Josh. I am sad I made a mistake but also knew it was bound to happen! Luckily, I do not have any food allergies to eggs. If I made a mistake with dairy or gluten, I would be dealing with the consequences. I wonder if, in time, I will have a sensitivity to eggs and will be able to tell if I have been contaminated.

Farewell, eggs….On a lighter note, I thought I would share my ridiculously large and delicious dinner:

-COOKS Rosemary Garlic Bread (flying through this loaf at an alarming rate)

-Soyrizo, cooked with kidney beans

-Cauliflower, cooked with garlic, yellow onion, salsa and olive oil

NAMASTE Friends! Gratitude for this meal.
