Well, tomorrow starts the vegan lifestyle. I'm preparing for hunger. =)
I think I've put on 5 pounds eating all the damn dairy and eggs I could handle this last week. Pizza after pizza, (I really like pizza).
Trying to put a shopping list together to ease into the new vegan status. Any ideas out there?
I have dairy substitutes picked out for milk and yogurt. I love cream in my coffee, guess I'll try a soy creamer. Picking up Natural Balance as a butter replacement.
The rest of my list comprises the obvious; vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains and tofu.
Again, if there was something that helped you when you went vegan, let me know.
I have tried Daiya once and didn't like, will try again. Everyone else enjoys it. =(
It's interesting that giving up dairy is for me a much bigger challenge than giving up meat ever was...
I like Smoothie with Spinach - Strawberry Banana Spinach Smoothie
1 cup Strawberries
1 ripe Banana
3 ounces Baby spinach
½ cup Almond Milk
1 cup Water
I would never do much cold turkey. I would slowly eliminate & add. What are we to do with all of those roosters at 3 months? I eat 4 roosters a month. I do not eat higher up on the food chain than that. It is really the carbohydrates coupled with protein that pack on the lbs. 'Ya gotta burn off all the sugar that is thrown at us by the corporate/capitalistic system. Figure out a manner by which to sell & consume more. Addiction!
