90 Day Vegan Adventure Day 5 Reformer

2 Comments

Ever since the juice fast I feel like I’m on the outside of the American food experience looking in, realizing how very unhealthy the typical US diet is and how oblivious everyone is to what they are putting into their bodies and the effect it has on wellness.

I also feel like someone who has quit smoking and is on a crusade to reform everyone they know who smokes.  So, I promise to record my own experiences and not to get up on the soap box preaching reform to all of you who don’t give a darn.   But I just have to say one thing.  It is difficult to order an entrée in an American restaurant that is not meat-based and slathered in cheese.

  1. so true! as you know, chris & i are veggies, so it’s really difficult to eat out sometimes! also, i recently started reducing my calorie intake (and exercising daily) for weight-loss and it’s crazy that i could eat my current whole day allotment in one meal in the ‘american diet’!! i use http://www.myfitnesspal.com to track the foods that i eat.

    • Thanks Ash. Ben and I were vegetarians when we were first married and then we added meat back into our diet at least once per week for the children. They need to build brain tissue, muscle, healthy bones and animal products are a complete protein. So, now that the last muscle builder is out of the house we can explore vegetarianism once again. I prefer vegan eating and my family like to add in organically grown dairy products. I’ll check out the myfitnesspal site. I’ve been using
