Vegan update and a recipe

Hey there,

So today is day 8 of eating vegan. Over the last week, I’ve experimented with a lot of recipes. I made some really good vegan tacos I ate for days…..

This weekend I attended a birthday party and ran into my ultimate weakness….cheesecake! Ugh! Why? I was doing so well. As everyone around me was indulging in they’re desserts I stood there drooling and trying to resist…..but I gave in. I had a piece of cheesecake….it was small but I still regretted it after. Speaking of dessert, I made some of my own deserts to keep me motivated.

Going Vegan…….for 21 days

Well Hello There,

My birthday is only 21 days away. July is always my deadline for health/fitness goals. I’ve been thinking about trying it for sometime. So I figured this would be a good opportunity.

I haven’t been a fan of meat for quite some time. In fact I have not had a piece of red meat or pork in 15 years. Can you believe that? I kept chicken, ground turkey, fish and eggs in my diet. Over the last year I grew sick of them. Well, I’m still okay with eggs. Call me strange, but the thought of eating the flesh of any living animals seriously grosses me out.

Sooooo. For the next 21 days, I’m sticking to plants. Nothing animal derived. Although I hardly eat meat, I know it’s going to be a challenge. The key will be to plan my meals ahead of time. I’ve been on a vegan hunt on Pinterest lately. I’ve found many yummy looking recipes so I’m excited. Btw, I’m not a person who really enjoys cooking. I do it because I enjoy eating healthy. I would love to have a chef. Keep dreaming.

I’ll keep you posted on the progress. I took some before photos of myself but I’m not ready to show quite yet.

 

Bye for now 🙂
