I’m nearing the end of my 22-day vegan challenge. To find out more about Marco Borges’ 22-Day Revolution, and begin with day zero, click here!

Still feeling a bit delicate this morning, I decided to change my Breathe Juice from the original recipe of four stalks of celery, a cucumber, two peeled lemons and spinach. Instead, I used just one stalk of celery, plus an orange in place of one of the lemons, and I also added an apple for sweetness. It was still just 184 calories. I’d seriously love to invest in a proper juicer so I can blend these a bit better!
The rest of the day consisted of repeats – which is good, because I was feeling pretty unadventurous. I made a half quantity of the chickpea paste this time for the chickpea sandwich, using a small can of chickpeas instead of the full sized one. My bread had larger slices this time, so I almost managed to eat all the filling… Almost! 427 calories – I still really enjoy this one.
Dinner was Quinoa Tabbouleh – cooked quinoa with garlic, lemon, parsley and salt, with spring onion, tomato and cucumber. Tasty and simple – and easy to adapt for my husband who was eating his with some grilled chicken! I didn’t eat all of mine so it came to around 333 calories. I also ate another one of my Nakd Bakewell bars and some dates, so my total calories were 1475. Today was basically all about trying to relax and not push too many boundaries after the hard weekend!
