So I'm totally committed to becoming vegan... but I'm faced with daily challenges in making this happen. I live WAY FAR up north in Saskatchewan due to my husband's job. It's a SMALL native community with nothing in terms of good nutritious food. Honestly, I can find maybe some Romaine lettuce, carrots, potatoes, onions and your basic fruits. I don't know how I can fully commit to this lifestyle with so very few food choices. We do make shopping trips into the city about once every 2 months... but it means that I might have fresh foods for about 2 weeks, then have NOTHING. I'm totally down for freezing all my fruits and veg, but I find there's such a loss in the quality of foods like Bok Choy, spinach, fresh herbs, etc.
Can anyone offer me up any advice or help or just some plain old support. Feeling pretty defeated!
I'm not sure what you are able to access in the city when you shop but are you a fan of dried Nori? It's a great 'vegetable' that will keep until your next shopping trip and as you know can be used in soups, to make wraps, etc etc...there is also many dried fruits that are great in warm cereal, trail mix and baking. Another one is dried split peas that you can make into a big batch of soup and freeze...
Also do you have space to plant a small garden of your favourite veggies and herbs in the summer months? If not you could always plant an herb garden that sits on a sunny window sil.
I hope this helps! If I think of anything else I will let you know!
