We are one day away from the best ever holiday–Thanksgiving! And can I tell you something really exciting? We’ll be having TURKEY! If that doesn’t surprise you, then you probably haven’t been following along on my (mostly) plant based journey the past six weeks. And yes, plant based is code for vegan.
It was hard. Not only because I couldn’t eat my favorite foods (eggs and butter anyone?), but because I found myself having a serious identity crisis. If I’m not making pie crust with butter then who the hell am I? Well I found out there’s a lot more to me than heavy cream and egg yolks.
Most eye opening of all was how much I learned. By the fourth week of experimenting in the kitchen I learned to make a kick-ass “buttercream” frosting out of cashews, the best white bean and kale soup, and I even learned how to order a vegan burrito at Chipotle (the guac was still extra). But most of all, I realized not everything needs sour cream and cheese to be delicious. I feel like my tastebuds got a serious re-training and I’m craving vegetables now more than ever.
