Day 4- Update


In my last post I told you guys that I was going to try a vegan lifestyle for at least 30 days and that my biggest fear was lack of options when eating out. Since then, I have eaten out several times and haven't had a problem finding something delicious to eat.

Subway- Veggie Delight Sub on italian bread. I also used the Sweet Onion Sauce as my only condiment.
Noodles & Company- Whole Grain Tuscan Linguine- No cream or cheese and still delicious! I could eat this every day.
Buffalo Wild Wings- Black Bean Burger- No cheese. I was assured this didn't have animal products in it by the waitress.

Today, I am cooking at home so I can control the ingredients that go into my food.
All in all, so far so good. I haven't had a lot of trouble resisting Colin's food even though his Mac and Cheese from Noodles was pretty tempting. :)

The Kind Diet

For real, let's talk about this book. The Kind Diet was written by Alecia Silverstone and it is all about a vegan lifestyle. I read this book in one night. I was in a trance. Some of the things that she said about eating animal products really resonated with me and I have decided to try to eliminate most if no all animal products from my diet for at least 30 days.

I mean, I wouldn't eat this little guy... So why do I feel okay eating other animals? I have no idea but for the next 30 days I'm going to try to figure it out.

If I slip up every now and then, I am not going to beat myself up about it. This lifestyle is all about being kind to yourself, your body, the planet, and animals.

I have been interested in trying the vegan lifestyle for awhile now and I'm glad I am finally willing to take the plunge. The biggest challenge for me will definitely be the lack of options when I am eating out but most restaurants have vegan options now. Right now seems like the right time to jump so I am jumping, mmk?

I'll keep you posted!
