Vegan Fortnight Day ONE

I often go vegetarian once a week to remind myself how lucky I am. However, on the days I do go vegetarian, I include eggs and cheese in my diet. I also noticed that I tend to eat more refined carbohydrates on the days I do go veggo. The challenge was to go vegan for a fortnight without eating loads of refined carbohydrates like white rice, bread or pasta.  It was also important not to incorporate too much unfermented soy because of the phytates and isoflavones (http://drjulindalee.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/soy-far-so-good-is-soy-really-good-for-us/)

The vegan fortnight kicked off on 8 August, the start of a the long Hari Raya and National Day Weekend.
