Mark & Lisas Veggie February: Day Three

So as most of you are probably aware, I was dared by a colleague that will remain nameless to go vegetarian for a month. He claims that I would be unable to do it for a whole month. Me being the stubborn git that I am accepted that challenge. I am to go vegetarian for ONE MONTH. I chose February and at the same time i thought to myself why not kill two birds with one stone and raise some money. I have chosen to raise some money for Diabetes UK. I have setup a JustGiving page to allow anyone that wants to donate to this very good cause to donate. The link for this page is: Mark Baker Goes Veggie For February.

So, what are the rules of the month long challenge I hear you ask?

  • One FULL month of vegetarian diet (in this case 28 days as it is February)
  • No meat products of any kind to pass my lips
  • This is not a vegan diet challenge to I am allowed dairy products and eggs
  • No fish products (no pescatarian diet frown)
  • Whereas I am allowed to eat dairy products such as cheese, I am not allowed Parmesan as it contains animal fat.
  • No products that contain geletin.

So with all these rules in mind, My journey continues today.

Breakfast

So to continue in good faith, my Sunday began late as usual. I thought I fancied a proper breakfast, however, seeing as I cannot have bacon i thought that my tastebuds would be disappointed. I was wrong, I remembered that in the run up to this challenge, we had purchased some Linda McCartney Red onion and Rosemary sausages. So, I thought banging we're on! I fires up my tepinyaki grill and slice some mushrooms. I then banged a tin of baked beans in a pan and stuck them badboys on low. Stuck the mushrooms on high to get them going and whacked 6 veggie sausages on the grill. I know the bacon is missing c'est la vie. This would be the very first time i would have experienced vegetarian sausages. they were not bad in all honestly. Both myself and Lisa liked them. Lastly i fried two eggs sunny side up for myself as Lisa cant stand eggs.

A very successful sunday brekkie and all without meat RESULT!

Verdict 8/10 cool

Lunch

Seeing as my breakfast was pretty much a brunch as it was almost 11:00 when I had it, I did not have lunch.

Evening Meal

So as it is sunday and there is nothing much to do we usually do our own thing. So guess what I had? You guessed it last nights Mushroom, Spinach and Blue-Stilton lasagne. I have to say it tasted 100% better tonight. 

So this is a bit of a shorter one today, but we are still meat-free 3 days in.

What we noticed was that there were not a lot of places you could get genuine reviews of items and products that associate with camping so we decided to create this place.
