Vegan for 5 Days

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

My world has opened up to new possiblities! I can live without diary! I can breathe better without it! I do not miss chicken as I thought I would. My body is functioning so much better without it! I can eat macroni and cheese, cereal, cookies and cakes! The taste of roasted peanuts straight from the shell taste sooooo good! I can still eat sandwiches using tofurky products! I can eat cheese on my sandwich using vegan cheese and it taste exactly the way I used to like my regular sandwich (with the cheese slightly melted). I also had potato chips with sea salt. It's really so much better than the other stuff.

I can do this! I have 25 more days to go! Thank you for your suggestions on what I should do next. I also began boiling my water and had not used the microwave in 5 days! I am eating some processed vegan foods, but I am eating 90% fresh vegeatables, fruits, nuts, beans and grains! Tonight, I will make a rice and bean casserole for dinner!

I am able to eat MORE than I did for the last 10 years! No suffering at all!

    Hey girl, What prompted you to do a vegan challenge? It sounds interesting, especially the idea of eliminating dairy. I often get very, very bad gas when I consume dairy products.

    I'm so glad it is going so well for you! I will be so interested to see how this affects your energy, weight, overall feelings of health, etc! I love that you're seeing that vegetarians/vegans DO eat things other than salads -- so many people don't understand what all you can eat when abstaining from animal products. You go, girl!! emoticon
