Leafy Greens

Whole Food Plant Based | first month

I can not eat that. It is too GREEEN!


I weigh 73.8kg at light core-training/stretching 10-20 minutes 3-5 times a week.

Typical day of eating

  • Breakfast: 1 banana with wholemeal oats and soymilk
  • Lunch: wholegrain bread with various vegan spread, cucumber, tomato
  • Snack: 1 appel
  • Dinner: potatoes/wolegrain pasta/ wholegrain rice with vegatable, green salad as side dish

Cream cheese is difficult to replace. The buyable vegan spread is either laden with sunflower oil, tastes like cardboard or both. Finding a replacement for the milk in my latte is equally challenging. The various plantmilks either taste weird and/or flock out on contact with coffee.


This is more fun than I thought it would be! Before, I would concentrate on the animal content while preparing a meal. Vegetables were just accessories of moderate to low importance. They are the meal now, combined with whole food starches.

Bought some vegan cookbooks and tried several meals. Some were great, some good but nothing really disappointing. Best so far: Vegan für Faule (German) – too much refined oil though. Worst: Eat to Live Cookbook – health over taste & convenience.

Found Dr. Greger for solid information on nutrition. Love that guy!
