Vegan Out: Day 1
It’s 2:32 pm on Day 1 and my stomach hurts. I’m super hungry, and it’s completely my fault. I’m not sure where I went wrong, but my lunch (sweet potato with walnuts and a side of green beans) was a total bust. The potato is so dry I can barely get into it, and the green beans look like Madonna’s creepy old lady hands. Not appetizing at all.
Good thing I brought snacks!
Since going Veg, I pretty much always have snacks. It prevents me from making huge food mistakes!
I had two Clif bars as well, as an apple and celery do not a lunch make. After work, I had a soccer game. Not much to report there, we lost 4-0 and I received a swift kick to the shin by an overzealous man, resulting in a rather large egg-looking wound on my leg. Injury to insult?
Would you believe that I felt like having some Mexican food for dinner?
I cooked up a “Taco Salad” with Polenta
Ingredients: Red Leaf Lettuce, Jalapeno Black Beans, Red Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Avocados & Polenta
For Dressing, I used my favorite spicy (and local!) salsa
After assemblage, I decided to crumble up a handful of Multi-Grain crunchies in there
Mixed Up. Then devoured…Hunger Pains be gone!
On an ending note, I have been laughing for a few days about a comedy bit I heard on the radio, so I thought I’d share!
