Well I did pretty well yesterday. I have to admit that I did enjoy some salty fatty salami which I am now fairly grossed out about. But had a nice bowl of corn pasta with basil, olive oil, and parmesan for dinner. It was super yummy. I love simple pasta like that. Normally I add peas to it. It isn’t u heard of for me to not eat meat for a few days at home, but when I go out is another story. That will be a new test. Today I am removing all the purchased meats from the fridge because I found a home for them. Having dinner with an occasional meat eating veg head and we are going to watch Forks Over Knives together to really solidify my resolve.
I’m hoping to have more energy. I woke up feeling rested at least. Going on a hike and afterwards I plan on having a green smoothie with the yummy chard I picked up yesterday. I’m really excited about this diet change.
When watching http://www.forksoverknives.com/ yesterday I had a breakthrough; I am such an addict that food is my new cocaine, and fattening food gives off the same euphoric feeling as sex and drugs. Since I am neither getting laid or currently a coke whore in any manner of the word I am a totally fat and slovenly.
So I am going to slowly go veg head. As the little girl who proclaimed she was going to be a “meatatarian,” this is big. I mean I’ve done it before. Last year March I gave up meat to protest our involvement in Libya. Not that it made any sense, but after the beef fest of St. Patricks day I was kinda repulsed by it all, and I had watched Food Inc. hung over from said beef fest and had a wicked case of the p.m.s. Anyway it is totally doable. What really made me want to do this change were the studies done that going green can actually reverse disease, and almost prevent certain cancers. Pretty cool stuff.
So today I get rid of the meats, and most dairy. Keeping the huevos though, love me some egg white action. Maybe in time I can let them go. I’m not saying I WILL NEVER EAT MEAT AGAIN, but I will say I will try. Bacon is the heroin of meats, just sayin I’m sure I will relapse a time or two.
oh and btw i just ate salami. the only meat in my fridge. got back from a hike and the next thing you know….i hate to waste food and it’s there. ARGGGG
