Vegan Out: Day 17
I’m in the home stretch, loves! Sunday is the last day of this experiment – Monday might begin a bread & cheese bender so be prepared. In all seriousness though, I have loads more respect for all the vegans out there that are doing this day in and day out. I’m sure, like anything, I would get acclimated to this diet and accustomed to having limited choices when dining out. However, as much as I like eating healthy, I know I still want to eat cheese, bread, and the occasional sushi feast.
Moving on to Wednesday. I found myself awake at 5:20 and decided to get my raggedy butt out of bed for a 6am yoga class. I was excited about getting an AM workout in, but realized that without coffee I really don’t have much to offer the world. I halfheartedly made my way through my down dogs and warrior twos, and couldn’t wait for class to be over.
I knew after class I needed a hearty breakfast. Coffee, Cocoa Beach & Strawberries for a mid-morning snack
I came home for lunch and made a transitional lunch. My pureed butternut squash tasted like fall, while my vegan burger with daiya cheese, tomatoes and avocados was all summer.
It doesn’t look like a ton of food, but it really did the trick. Back at work, I was listening to Radio Paradise and heard one of my favorite songs, Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley. This lead to a favorite song discussion with my friend Carissa, that I think I’ll post about next week. Until then, click on this link to enjoy some Jeff in your life.
Wednesday night brings babysitting, which also brings a stop for falafels. Are you falafel-ed out yet?
On a side note – I forgot that I scarfed down Mack’s No Cookie Cookies last week without mention. They were amazing. I immediately went to the website and browsed through all their flavors. Upon seeing “Mint Chip” I really considered ordering a case. I’ve held off, we’ll see if that resistance lasts…
I was in bed and sound asleep by 9:45. I’m such a cool kid – been this way since ’84 when I was chillin’ & washin’ Buicks.
