Amsterdam Canal Tour

We TOTALLY lucked out on the weather during our stay in Amsterdam, which made our Amsterdam Canal Tour even more perfect! It has been unseasonably warm following an unseasonably cold snap. We barely saw a cloud during our 5 days here! We’re off to India tomorrow!

Lunch at Meatless District in Amsterdam

We spent an entire day walking around Amsterdam with my camera taking pictures (see below). Our meandering through the city had a purpose, though. We wanted to eat lunch at Meatless District, which is a popular plant-based vegan restaurant in Amsterdam.

All I can say is, “WOW!!!” It was amazing! The more vegan food we eat, the more we realize how delicious vegan food can be. Vegan chefs around the world are really hitting their stride!

The cucumber soda was delicious, too! Before I went plant-based, I HATED the taste of cucumber. One tiny piece in a salad or sushi and the dish was completely ruined. I’m pretty sure I could taste something with 1 parts per million of cucumber!

However, about a year after changing our diet, I tried cucumber again to see if my tastes had changed. I still didn’t like it, but it wasn’t too bad. It was tolerable. After another year, I tried it again and really liked it. Now we eat cucumber regularly in salads and as a dipping device for hummus. I still don’t love it, but I certainly like it, especially when it’s flavored with something.

My tastes have changed a LOT since going vegan and plant-based. I like all sorts of vegetables now that I couldn’t stand the sight of before. Keep that in mind if you want to go plant-based or vegan and you’re a picky eater like I was. Your tastes will change over time.
