Don’t roll your eyes please. For the past five years….okay I’ll just say, since I married Ronald, I’ve had to learn how to cook/bake mostly using vegan ingredients. I’ve learned a lot and I’m not bad at it. However when everybody else is looking the other way, I’m making a fried egg for breakfast. I also indulge in the ocasional feta cheese on my salad. While these things are not bad, I’ve decided to go on a 30 day break from all cheese, all milk products, and all eggs. Yes, I’m going to be completely vegan for a whole month. I haven’t decided when I will start, but probably as soon as I can use up everything in my fridge. I will also be eating more of the good stuff, because I refuse to go hungry. No this is not a diet so don’t worry about me. I totally believe a person can eat tons of the good stuff and never be hungry.
After listening to my favorite chef, Mark Anthony this week I was inspired. He said that if you don’t eat meat but still eat milk and eggs, its like smoking 50 packs of cigaretts a day instead of 60. That doesn’t sound good to me. Also, I want to know for myself that having a completely plant-based diet WILL make me feel better. I want to have more energy so I’ll start here.
I am going to make a salad bar in my refrigerator which will encourage me to eat a salad everyday. Also I have a special kale smoothie that I love. I will attempt to make it once a day or once every other day. I’ll get back to you at the end of my 30 days to let you know if I feel better.
Anyone want to join me?
