The first day of my challenge is almost over. I think I did pretty well. Just panicked a bit on Sunday evening when I realised that my pantry had not been updated for the challenge. So, I decided to do the whole pantry refilling the next day instead and not worry so much about it. At the end of the day, I did have some meat in the freezer and in my fridge (my been stew with lamb) which I decided to store in the freezer. Don’t feel like throwing away food just because I’ve embarked on this challenge.
Anyway, breakfast went well thanks to peanut butter and some tapenade. For lunch I ate an okra (gumbo) stew with rice (will try to add the recipe here later). For dinner I went with the Bell Pepper Soup recipe sent to me by Muriel (my coach).

Savings (total ego boost!)
Because my main reasons for taking on the 30 days Veggie challenge are environment care and my health, Muriel sent me an email with details on everything I’d helped saved after my first day (see picture). Saving can indeed be fun!
