Back in the vegan saddle
January 31, 2013 2 Comments
Last month, I had a physical and talked to my doctor about diet, exercise, the whole shebang.
I told her I had tried going vegan last May and loved the way it made me feel – the weight loss, the energy, the satisfaction of showing some will power.
I’m going omnivore on Sundays.
After six straight days of grains, fruits, veggies and – hmm, . . . can’t think of any ands – I get to eat anything I want. The things I had avoided all week. The cookies, the steak, the chicken quesadillas. If it has egg, cheese or meat – preferably beef – I’m glommin’ it.
It’s still hard to get through the weeks sometime, primarily because it’s really difficult to come up with interesting recipes night after night. I mean, I’ve just jettisoned some pretty huge food groups, making my usually decent repertoire pretty thin.
But I’m determined to make it through to my April appointment to see if I can make an impact on my weight and health.
