Day 1 of being a Vegan was….challenging. I’m not sure if I was over thinking my meals or if that many items really are made with animal products. When I went on the Peta website to check out the approved list, EVERYTHING seemed so unhealthy: 7-11 apple pies, candy galore, famous amos cookies and kettle chips. I was looking for guidance on what type of Salad dressings I could use, not what type of processed foods I could load up on! In the end, I stuck to my goal of eating Vegan for the day (6 more days to go!) but got a little frustrated come dinner time when I was ready to gnaw off my arm after the gym and didn’t want to think of what I was and wasn’t able to eat.
Here were my meals…
Oatmeal w/ Almond Milk, Better n Peanut Butter, Banana, Vegan Carob Chips
Snack: 100 calorie pack of almonds & clementine
Dessert: Frozen Banana Ice Cream
After work I ran 3.5 miles and tried to come up with some more exciting recipes I could eat during the week so I wasn’t on Veggie overload. Stay tuned to see how I do!
I have been on the hunt for something to wear for Valentines day.. I don’t need or care to be decked out in hearts, pink and red but I do like to have a little something to represent love. Here are some looks I put together. Some of the items are WAY too pricey but it gives you an idea of what to look for…
QUESTIONS: Do you usually dress up for Valentines Day? If you are Vegan, post a link of your favorite Vegan meal… OK, I know this isn’t a question. But I still want to know 🙂
Day 13: Goals
To be honest I’d rather tip toe through the daisies, wandering down my creative path, creating my own recipes, blogging, and not worry about where I’m headed or what I’m accomplishing. Except that it’s quite clear I’m not accomplishing as much as I’d really like to be. And there’s this strange feeling in my gut that has a slight dissatisfaction about it. So, I set goals… Life goals, Relationship goals and Hobbie goals.
- To be trustworthy.
- Earn a good living.
- Respect the feelings and rights that my partner has in the relationship. Don’t become overbearing.
- Don’t ever let the fun fizzle out of your relationship. Do keep an open mind and try new things.
- Run a marathon one day.
- Cook 10 new recipes a month.
