I am off to work in a moment and today I will be thinking about a nice 1940s meal I can prepare tonight….something with potatoes in!
The fitness challenge is going well and I have walked for 40 minutes everyday and eating vegan is going well too although I really am missing my cheese and the other morning it would have been so nice to have a bacon buttie!
During the 1940s, because of rationing, most family meals consisted of a high proportion of vegetables. As I LOVE vegetables this is not a problem for me. The problem lies in ensuring, that as a vegan, my nutritional needs are filled. I am taking my milk, cheese, egg and meat ration and having instead some raw nuts and extra beans and pulses.
As eggs were srictly rationed during the war there are many authentic eggless recipes I can use so that will be no problem.
Now it’s time to start moving my current vegan diet over to a vegan wartime diet so please check back or offer any thoughts or suggestions as I try and do so authentically as possible.
Thanks so much for all the comments and input and I am looking forward to responding shortly..
Have a lovely day!
