No bad side effects on second day like headaches, so that was good.
Morning: rooibos tea and smoothie
morning snack: three rice cakes with PB and apple slices
lunch: day 1 supper leftovers
supper: tofu mini quiches and salad
dessert: since I had no starch with supper, I had rice cakes with PB and apple.
Lots of water and sodium free sparkling water.
By the end of today, I already felt lighter! I did have a headache in the afternoon that lasted all evening. Probably the coffee withdrawl. But, I felt good that I made the plunge to recommit to this.
morning: water, rooibos tea
midmorning: spinach and kale smoothie
lunch: since I don’t yet have leftovers, I ate five rice crackers smeared with PB and apple slices. Four would have been enough as they were filling.
Supper: I whipped up a cauliflower, chickpea, sweet potato, cabbage curry with raisins. It was really good.
I remembered just how fast and easy vegan cooking is. Throw together a bean with a starch and some veggies, add spices. How easy us that?!
It’s been almost 3 years since family went vegan. More than 2.5 years since family fell off the wagon and became junk food carnivores. 1.5 years since I quit drinking alcohol permenantly. And, today, three years since starting this blog – I am ready to begin again. I will be forty this year, and I want to finally commit to living a healthy, purposeful life. I am always tired. I am slowly gaining weight. I have zero energy. Enough is enough.
I am gonna go for the 21 day challenge again! I got my smoothie stuff ready to blend in the morning!
