Day 1

Ok, like, I’m going to be, like, totally like Cher from Clueless and like, tell you everything I ate today.

Ha. I can’t even take myself like that. I do, however, want to share with you the food I ate. The vegan cleanse started today. It will only last 21 days, but I think it will be a nice introduction to a different food lifestyle.

Breakfast: Larabar (cinnamon bun…it was OK) and a spoonful of almond butter

Lunch: side salad and fruit cup from Chick-Fil-A and half a Larabar (cocoa mole-ew)

Snack: hummus and veggies, fruit chiller (ice, fruit, juice-not sure if the juice was 100% vegan, but I’m sure I’ll make other mistakes!)

Dinner: homemade pop corn and another spoonful of almond butter

Now, that is not what I will be eating every day. Today was kind of a different day…out and about shopping and then I had to do something quick for dinner. I hope in the future to share better recipes that are balanced.

I’m completely exhausted, but I am charged thinking about getting all Betty Crocker on my vegan butt tomorrow. :-)

  1. not that this whole vegan thing is about losing weight....BUT....I just talked to my friend that lives in Orange Co. Apparently she went vegan 4 months ago and has lost 15 lbs. Just simply by not eating animal products. Inspiring! She also said she feels AMAZING. She said she wakes up and feels so AWAKE. Then in the evening when she is sleepy, she just goes to sleep with no problems. She said her skin is glowing. She is a testament to all the things we've read and heard about this whole vegan thing. She recommends a cookbook called Veganomicon....see here: http://www.amazon.com/Veganomicon-Ultimate-Isa-Chandra-Moskowitz/dp/156924264X/ref=sr_1_1/182-2294080-9607260?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1270687745&sr=8-1
