It's becoming a true effort to find full meals that are convenient. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is not a carbohydrate or junk food adventure. These things are only making the heart disease worse. I have GOT to be more disciplined and start cooking dinner at home. If you have any amazing vegan recipes you'd like to share with me, please do so!
I haven't had a meat craving since last week! That's pretty exciting, right? (Although watching my husband put some sausage biscuits in the microwave this weekend just about broke me… *Drool*)
If nothing else has come from these past 8 days, I can say I'm at least trying new food! I've never been the bold & adventurous type when it comes to trying new cuisines, but here lately I'm really enjoying Thai food! I never would have thought I would have liked it, but by changing the way I eat, I am sometimes forced to try new things when there aren't any other selections available. It's opened my taste buds to a whole new genre of flavors. I even tried the flaky fish food cheese substitute powder! Yeah, that still grosses me out to think about. I put it on my popcorn for a small little morning snack and guess what? IT WAS ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD! Nutritional yeast for the win!
It still astounds me to see all the support I'm getting from people I would have never thought would be standing by my side during this. It also never ceases to amaze me when people who should be supporting me send rude comments or texts about how terrible vegans are. Again, I am not a vegan. If you missed that part, please read my previous post by clicking here.
I've sent my husband out to acquire some Beyond Meat. I'm hoping he finds some today so that I can start making some healthy dinners as well. I can't wait to try it.
I'm going to be doing a quick blog post tonight about some of my new favorite vegan snacks so be sure to check back later!
