Today I woke up at 4 am with a stomach ache. It was too uncomfortable to sleep so I got up and ended up spending the majority of the day on the sofa watching Netflix and then we went to take the dog for a walk. Not exactly how I wanted to spend the day. I feel pretty tired and not in the mood to blog but I am committed to doing blogmas so here I am. I also feel like I might be coming down with a cold but I’m really hoping not. I’m not a good ill person at all. I feel sorry for the people around me who have to hear the constant moaning and I feel even more sorry for myself. 12 hour days at work with a cold are not fun at all. Getting up at 5.20 am with a cold is really unpleasant.
I have watched so much of the Gilmore Girls today that I am starting to believe it is real. I am literally thinking about the show right now. Who thinks about shows? It’s feeling pretty real to me right now and I need to get back into reality.
In 2 weeks, Carl and I are going to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London. So expect a whole blog post on that! I’ve never been before and am excited!
Okay that was just an update and now lets head in to todays post.
What am I eating for Christmas dinner?
I am getting asked this question an awful lot. I don’t really get why people think I can’t have an ordinary Christmas dinner with just a few switches. I guess it’s a good thing that people are interested but many vegans are probably fed up with people finding out they’re vegan and asking, ‘what do you eat?’ It’s just another variation of that. Sometimes I feel like telling them to mind their own business. Most are surprised there are vegan alternatives to most animal products but they just think they won’t be as good.
If you are interested to know here is what I’ll be having:
- Quorn Vegan Meat Free Pieces
- Roast Potatoes
- Mash with Vitalite (dairy free spread that tastes really good)
- Vegan Yorkshire Puddings – I’ve seen loads of recipes online so just need to find a really good one
- Vegan Gravy
And anything else that takes my fancy. I’m going to search Pinterest at some point.
Throughout the day I also aim to eat vegan cheese on crackers, dairy free chocolate and Pringles.
That sounds really good to me and all that matters is that I like it and I’m not eating any animal products.
I’m not big on fake meats because I didn’t like red or processed meat when I was younger so why eat the fake versions of them now? Maybe I’d like them but I’m not that interested in trying them. Plus most have onion in which often gives me reflux.
I say eat what you like anyway. When I was younger, my Mum and I just ate bread and soup this one time as that is all we wanted! It doesn’t really matter what you eat as it is just another meal really. You can make it as special or as not special as you want.
Thanks again. I’m going to get back to chilling on the sofa. Have a nice evening x
