My Vegan Breakfast Staple Foods

Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese

 

Most bagels are actually vegan, even though you do have to be careful with most breads as they often put milk or eggs in it. However, most bagels don’t fit the same equation, but it would still be a good idea to read the ingredients just in case!

 

As for the cream cheese, I will admit that I have not found many vegan cream cheese’s but it was one of my biggest goals when I first became vegan because I LOVED cream cheese. It especially became a goal after I visited New York City and fell in love with vegan cream cheese.

 

While the vegan cream cheese that I found is not the same from New York, it’s still really good and tastes remarkably like vegan cream cheese. I highly suggest the Kite Hill Original Cream Cheese however there are a few other flavors of theirs that you could always try out!

Panda Puffs Cereal with Almond Milk

 

I will admit that when I went vegan, I had no idea that the cereal itself is almost ALWAYS made with milk. I was super disappointed to find out that I would never get to have fruity pebbles but after a trip to Earth Fare (A Vegan’s Food Heaven), then I found Envirokidz which has many flavors of cereal.

 

I have tried Choco Chimps, Lemurs Cereal, Koala Crisp, and Panda Puffs. I am definitely planning on trying more and even exploring other companies at some point but right now, I am obsessed with the Panda Puffs Cereal!

 

The almond milk is definitely not required, I’m sure soy milk, rice milk, or whatever else would be absolutely fine. I just prefer SWEETENED almond milk with my panda puffs cereal.

Bacon and Provolone Cheese Sandwich

 

This isn’t exactly the most breakfast- style foods but it’s definitely one of my favorite foods to eat for breakfast. This was actually one of the first foods that I found that I ate constantly when I first became vegan.

 

The Lightlife Smart Bacon is my favorite bacon brand, though I will admit that it’s the only brand that I have ever had but it’s really good and paired with Follow Your Heart Provolone Cheese (the BEST vegan- cheese brand), it’s unbeatable.

 

Make sure to check your bread so that it doesn’t have any milk or eggs, I personally prefer the French bread that can be found in the deli department of most grocery stores.

Raspberry and Peach Oatmeal

 

Great Value Raspberry Peach Oatmeal is my favorite oatmeal which can only be found at Walmart. Most oatmeals are vegan so any oatmeal or flavors that you prefer are perfectly fine, this is just my preference.

Why Did I Go Vegan?

 

This is the most common question that I’ve heard since the moment that I became vegan. “Why did you do it?” Like it’s some unimaginable concept that somebody could become vegan, that somebody could make the decision to change their eating habits to this degree.

 

I’ll admit that I changed a lot, it wasn’t even one of those things that I slowly began to cut things out, all of it was simply gone one day. I had one last day where I ate tuna sandwiches and cereal and almost had half a thing of nutella as my parting goodbye. It was a decision, something that came about from a moment of curiosity.

 

I was struggling with food, something that has been an on-going battle which will definitely be something that I discuss more in the future. At the time, I was 200 pounds and felt absolutely disgusting and I was binge eating all of the time. I was not in a good place.

 

And then one day, I was on YouTube and I found all of these vegan YouTubers. I started watching vegan videos, like foods and recipes. I watched videos on why people became vegan and why people were not vegan and I became curious.

 

I started watching documentaries and videos of how animals are treated and it was during “Cowspiracy” that I had this epiphany. Or rather this general disgust. I was watching how cows were treated and I just couldn’t stomach the idea of eating meat ever again. I couldn’t stomach the idea of being the reason why these animals were being mistreated.

 

But it wasn’t just that, I was going through some things. I was unhappy and sad and I hated my body and I hated my diet. I didn’t think Veganism would fix it but I wanted to try.

 

Alongside all of these reasons, I have chronic stomach pain where I randomly get stabbing pains in my stomach which came after Gallbladder surgery back in November of 2015. I wanted a way to make this better and I knew that there was a possibility that changing my diet would positively impact this problem.

The Changes in My Life…

 

Hello guys!

 

So, it’s been a while since I’ve uploaded something so I’m gonna make my return by explaining the changes that have made in my life. These changes will be the focus of topics for the next coming weeks so I hope you enjoy this and that you find some interest as I will be mostly working on these things.

 

First, I went Vegan!

 

I will definitely be explaining the reason behind why I did this, the changes that have occurred in my body, and my life since this decision but I definitely don’t regret it. It’s been an amazing experience that I am still enjoying to this day.

 

Second, I went to Carolina Rebellion.

 

This is not a topic that I will discuss too much more on this site but I would love to make a post about my experience there and what it is in general. I had so much fun though!

 

Third, I went to New York City!

 

I had been in New York only once before, but it was a very small city and was nothing compared to New York City. I will definitely be sharing plenty of my experience in New York City and what it was like to be a VEGAN in New York!

 

Fourth, I am now in a relationship.

 

In time, I definitely plan on posting more about this relationship and our love story but I really wanted to share this now because I know that many of you have been here with me since day one, when I was going through a fresh break- up and I have even shared some of my dating experiences on here so I thought you guys definitely deserved this piece of information. Until I get around to it, I am slowly posting pictures on my Instagram so feel free to follow me so that you can at least see pictures until then! AND NO, I DID NOT MEET HIM ON DATING SITES. @sheswritingmore)

 

Until then, please check out these other posts. Many of these things are completely new for me so most of them will be related to relationships and even my break- up saga.

 

This is in order of when I posted it, meaning the break – up playlist was more than a year ago while Online Dating was about 2 months ago. Love you guys!
