Well, tomorrow is day 30 of my Vegan Diet! I am pretty proud of myself that I made it this far! I do have a confession though, I ate a meatball today! It was good too 🙂
I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do after the 30 days and I think that I will probably stay away from dairy, and eat meat occasionally. It has been hard for me to get enough protein everyday – mostly because I’m a picky eater and some fake meats kinda freak me out a little, not gonna lie. And I don’t like tofu. There are only a few fake meats that I can stand and I can’t eat them plain, they have to be in something or served with some kinda sauce or on a bun.
I think my body was mostly reacting to the dairy anyways and not the meat, but I guess we’ll find out. After eating meat a couple of times after NOT having it, we’ll see how my body really reacts. Who knows, I may just become a full-time vegan!
One thing I’ve picked up in the last week is working out 5 days a week for at least 30 mins each time. I used to jog a lot and when I was doing that, I was steadily losing weight and toning up, then things got busy and I’ll admit that I got a little lazy. When I quit running, I was able to go 1.5 miles and I know, that is not much, but for someone who never ran in her life, it was pretty good and felt amazing and it didn’t take long to get there. Well it’s been about 5 months since I’ve done any running and I was sad when I tried to run 1.5 miles and didn’t even get to a mile so that just motivated me even more to keep at it! I’m doing good so far. I forgot how good working out feels! You guys should try it 🙂
Anyways, here are some things that I’ve made lately…
Crispy Roasted Chickpeas – I added paprika, cumin, salt & pepper (they didn’t last long, yummy!)
I was craving something in a tortilla so I used two spinach tortillas and added hummus, avocado and some sautéed veggies. It was super good and easy to make, will definitely make again!
Something for lunch that I made at work – Sourdough bagel with hummus, avocado, tomato, onion, lettuce and pickles.
I’m really craving stir fry with rice, so I think that’s what’s for dinner tonight!
Oh yeah, and my birthday is coming up on the 3rd!
