A week in the Vegan Life...
I am amazed at the interest in my now "60 Day" journey into the Vegan life. At minimum once per day, sometimes more, I have someone approach me and tell me that my facebook posts have made them curious. What do you eat? How much weight have you lost? How do you feel?
B-Fast: Banana with peanut butter and Ezekiel Bread. Coffee.
Snack: Trader Joes Soy Yogurt with granola
Lunch: 2 Huge Black Bean and Broccoli wraps with/ Red Pepper Hummus
Snack: Almond, raisins, and two fig bars
Dinner: Indian Food with a spinach wrap
Snack: Hemp Protein shake with strawberries and banana
How do I feel?
Though I was really trying to rule out the Vegan lifestyle as a silly option for folks, I have been amazed at the results. As much as I would love to have a huge hamburger, the trade wouldn't be worth it. I feel better than I have in 20 years. I train harder, fit into my clothes better..and rarely feel tired. There is no hamburger worth giving that up. :)
