Vegan Challenge: Day 2

The Laptop Lunches® Vegan Challenge is in full swing, so we thought we'd give you a little update on how we're doing. After some conversations, it seems like the only constant amongst the office is that we are all missing cheese. Beyond that, it is obvious that we all have our own preferences.

While one staff member feels that soy milk, rice milk and non-dairy creamer have ruined their morning coffee, another is perfectly content with soy. We've learned who the big meat eaters of the office are as well as who's willing to try just about anything. We've even heard the tale of the tofu that ruined dinner... and the special treats that followed.

Although many of us have immersed ourselves into the world of vegan cooking and exploration, some of us are stuck in a rice, beans, and salad rut which can be a bit frustrating. Please let us know if you have any ideas on how to get out of this rut or if you would like to suggest any easy-to-prepare vegan dishes.

The good news is that we are all moving forward together and gaining an appreciation for the vegan lifestyle. After only two days, many of us are already feeling more energized and less weighed down and we are all looking forward to continuing the challenge... as long as we can bring the special treats with us!
