Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 

WELCOME TO DAY TWO!

We hope you enjoyed your first day being vegan! How did you go? If you have any questions, please feel free to email the mentor that we have assigned to you, if you haven't heard from them yet by email you should hear from them very soon :-)

 

Kym's advice for day two:
Ok so yesterday I asked you to clean out your fridge and pantry of all animal products and gift them to a friend or neighbour. You now might be thinking... what am I going to do without my "...." insert previous favourite food stuff. Guess what? You are going to find new flavours that you never knew even EXISTED on this fine planet of ours! For example: quinoa, tempeh, seitan, cashew cheese, dried jackfruit, chia seeds, tahini, kale, nutritional yeast, coconut bacon, liquid smoke, shitake mushrooms... before I went vegan I had never even heard of most of these foods! The fact is, vegan food is where all the best flavours really come from, I mean the first thing that meat eaters do is smother their food with  liquified plants (otherwise known as sauces!). You are about to discover a whole new world of flavours and expand you palate! 


TODAYS ASSIGNMENT: 
Time to do some serious hunting and gathering, find one of these foods and hunt it down! Pick one from the list above and see if you can locate it at your local supermarket, health food store or market! Enjoy the experience of discovering new flavours that are healthy for you and better for the animals and our environment :-)

Cassie's recipe idea for day two:
Coconut Rice Salad

Makes 4 serves
Ingredients
2 cups long grain rice, rinsed thoroughly
1 litre water
270ml lite coconut milk
1 bunch coriander, roughly chopped
1 bunch mint, roughly chopped
1 handful of snow peas, thinly sliced
2 cucumbers, diced
4 shallots, thinly sliced
1 cup wombok, thinly sliced
1 cup roasted cashew nuts, lightly salted
Dressing
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp hoi sin sauce
1 tsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  1. Place the rice and water into a pot and cook until done, approximately 20 minutes on high heat. Turn the heat down to a low setting and stir through the coconut milk and continue to cook until absorbed. Turn out onto a large tray, spread evenly, cover with plastic wrap and place into the fridge to cool.
  2. In a large salad bowl, toss the rice with the rest of the salad ingredients.
  3. To make the dressing: place all ingredients into a bottle and shake well to combine. Pour over salad and serve immediately.
