month of vegan - day 6

Wow, tea and toast. Bet you didn't see that coming!

We decided to do our big fruit and vege shop at the Vic Market for a change. The prices are cheaper than the Camberwell market, but you really do need to shop around. I don't know if I could be arsed doing that every week!
We had our lunch there as well, which was pretty tricky to shop for. We got a couple of juices and Deb found some lentil balls and a mixed bean salad (and pretended that she couldn't see the broad beans in there). I had a vege pizza that was the only one that didn't list cheese in the ingredients, and I couldn't see any on the cold pieces they had stacked up. I felt cheated when I bit in to find cheese in there. I wasn't going to stop eating it because the damage was done, but it made me realise how you have to pay so much attention if you're going to take this seriously. Also, it tasted really greasy and fatty. I hope all cheese doesn't taste like that when I'm allowed to eat it again.

For dinner I tried my hand at making the Japchae from the other day. I think it turned out pretty damn good. Maybe a little less oil next time though.
