RE: Almond Butter

OMG! I just realized that I used almond butter on my toast yesterday instead of apple butter. I also ate the meatless Boca burger in the freezer and saw that I should have eaten a veggie burger. And one last thing, I ate my cereal w/ choc soymilk and it wasn't fortified. Three mistakes already.
I really didn't care for the carrot and pepper soup, so can I subst. the hoppin john salad instead? Just for future reference.
I think the meal plan is supposed to serve more as a reference point. Especially to those that don't quite no where to start. I think not knowing what food choices to make could get overwhelming. Which is why the meal plan exists.
I for one have not followed it at all! So I think you are ahead of the game. As long as you are eating vegan, getting plenty of fruits and veggies, then I think you are fine! And it sounds like you are doing very well! I wouldn't stress about it. Just use the meal plan for ideas, and suggestions. But, I don't think you have to follow it to a T.
