31 Day Vegan Meal Plan – DariusCooks.TV
It’s true. You read that right. In a world where I love bacon, cheese, cream, and just about everything else that tastes really good, I’ve decided to go vegan. Well, only for 31 days, but I’m still doing it!
The truth is. We do some kind of Jumpstart in January challenge every year. This year, we are doing VEGAN!
Here’s a quick video on the details:
Now that we’ve gotten it out of the way, let’s go with meal ideas for the 31 days. It’s like that school lunch calendar we all used to have… But better!
Wait: Before you read it. Let me say this. THIS IS JUST A GUIDE! What’s more, this isn’t even breaking the surface in the upcoming videos, live streams, cooking classes, and ebooks. But, I want you to know that we will eat more than just salads. And yes, I’ve figured out how to make banana pudding, peach shoemaker, and even red velvet cake, all vegan. Let’s get ready to rumble!
Oh, one last thing to keep in mind. I’m not really with meat substitutes and soy products. So, you’ll notice that this is mostly free of soy and meat substitutes. I thought, let’s go as plant-based and unrefined as possible. Now, there is pasta, rice, refined sugar and even white flour. Substitute wherever you want. In any case, that’s all healthier than a piece of fried chicken and a buttery cookie. Can I get an AMEN?
