Hi, my dear friends! Today I would like to ask you to take part in my Facebook challenge Green Thursday. As you might know I run a design business called Susi´s Cauldron and a smaller one on the side called Susi´s Vegan Cauldron which aims to show people that it is easy to become vegan and that you don´t have to fear to go hungry when you are a vegan.
The Thursday before Easter is traditionally called Green Thursday because around the Easter time you can find the first herbs in nature growing again and so our ancestors were able to cook a lovely soup from these herbs and break their fasting. Among the herbs you will find: dandelion, ground ivy, stinging nettle, daisies, goutweed, and common chickweed. The traditional soup contained 9 different herbs.
Now you might be thinking I don´t want to eat chickweed so our challenge for you is:
On Green Thursday, 24 March 2016 we will eat only green foods and drink green beverages. Go vegan for one day and try out for yourself what it feels like to eat fresh and healthy.
Join us for #greenveganthursday! This Thursday we dare you to go vegan for one day and eat and drink green food only. There are so many vegetables and fruit to choose from: broccoli, lettuce, spinach, avocado, apples, cucumbers, etc. We will post our meals and you are very welcome to post your creations. Come on, it is just for one day, it will do you good and it is still lent after all. We are looking forward to seeing you taking part! #govegan
