90 Day Vegan Adventure Day 19 Just So You Know

Just so you know, I’ve been in an earthquake, moved my youngest to college and am now watching a hurricane outside my window.  Quite the eventful week and vegan eating has taken a backseat.

Just so you know,  over the last 6 days I’ve eaten a taco with beef, a chicken breast, milk duds and iced tea with caffeine.  The taste of the beef was very strong and gamey, the chicken breast was rather bland, the milk duds and ice tea gave me migraine headaches complete with a visual aura.

So, just so you know, I’m not a perfect, always eat the best choice vegan. However, I am committed to the 90 Day Vegan Adventure and will be posting daily new recipes, challenges and victories along the way.


90 Day Vegan Adventure Day 5 Reformer

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.

Vegan Adventure Day 3 Potato Chips

A word for anyone who wants to transform their eating habits, keep the junk food out of the house!  I wanted Potato Chips with my veggie burger this evening but there weren’t any in the house so I had steamed green beans and rice instead.  If chips had been here I would have eaten more than I really wanted and felt the grease at the back of my throat and the unnatural thirst from too much salt.  Now I feel satisfied and glad that the junk is out of the house!
