Veganuary – Falling off the wagon in week 3…

Confession time: I had a slice of garlic pizza bread with Mozarella on Saturday! I was in a foul mood, I had been at work, the fiancé, (ha! still can’t get used to that) took me for lunch and as a giant slab of dough, garlic and cheese sat in front of me, he asked if I’m OK as I seem a bit down, I reached out and I took a bite of a slice and well, then the rest of the slice followed!!

I didn’t however beat myself up, I finished my vegan dish, then went and got vegan snacks and had a lovely indulgent evening with vegan chocolate and my gorgeous man. I felt guilty momentarily but reminded myself that this journey is not about perfection, it’s doing the best I can, and I’m doing my best.

Here’s what I ate last week. There was a lot of chocolate – I’m going to try and cut back on that (but I said that last week too… oops!)
