    Signed up because I really need to clean out my body and a vegan diet is good place to start.
    My biggest challenge will be getting a balanced diet full of all the right amounts of carbs, fats, proteins, EFAs, vitamins, and minerals.
    I’ll need to really plan my meals in advance in order to eat vegan for 21 days.

    • Here’s my basic meal plan for this week: For breakfast, I’ll have some combination of fruit (apples, oranges, bananas, strawberries, grapefruit, etc.) and oatmeal. For lunch, I’ll have a huge salad of greens (spinach, kale, or some kind of lettuce) with one or more of the following: broccoli, onions, bell peppers, cucumbers, avocado, tomatoes, sprouts, green onions, green peas, red beans, garbanzos, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and sunflower seeds . For dinner, it’s Quinoa or brown rice and beans (red, black, kidney, white, or black eyed) with one or more of the following: broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, green beans, green peas, asparagus, zucchini, and mushrooms.

    Your first name-Char
    Gender-Female
    Age-38

    Current eating patterns-I mostly eat clean (lots of veggies, fruit, green smoothies, juices) but love salty/sweet snacks. Three or four times a year I eat “vegetarian” for a month at a time. Want to try more raw eating and vegan for a change

    Why you signed up for the March 2014 21-day Vegan Kickstart Challenge-I have PCOS and insulin resistance and I need to refrain from breads, meat, and starchy foods. I want to regulate my hormones without medication (Glumetza,Metformin) and hopefully this will kick start my weight loss journey (goal weight is 150)

    What you anticipate will be your three biggest challenges to staying on track-eating vegan and cooking for my husband who IS NOT eating vegan :); wacky hormones, and salty/sweet snack cravings
    How you plan to conquer those challenges-preparation and organization (have my food handy so not tempted while cooking for hubby)

    Any other information that you wish to share to help us know you better-I love a challenge

    Just wanted to share – I made a curried chickpeas and spinach last night. It was good. I made rice for my daughter to add to her plate. I am temporarily off rice, bread and pasta. So, I ate just the curried chickpeas and spinach. I need to tweak the recipe a bit. My attempts to add more chickpeas and spinach did not include adding more of the spices. (Don’t know what I was thinking.) My daughter, who is a vegetarian, liked it. I can always test my attempts at new recipes on her. This is the link to the recipe if your interested; http://www.vikingrange.com/consumer/lifestyle/recipe.jsp?id=prod9610208.
