Vegan Month Over!

I have gone an entire month without eating any animal products. I can't really believe I did it considering my butter addition. I haven't really missed meat at all. There's been a few times where I could have gone for BBQ ribs, but I did not induldge. Doesn't mean I won't in the future. I don't really have plans to go back to meat eating, however, cheese might be reincorporated. I tried some vegan cheese and I tossed it right out. I just got I think its called soy shreads. Its not bad, but its not cheese. Mostly I can live without milk and meat, but sometimes life is too short not to have cheesecake. But I think if I do decide to indludge, it will have to be for the good stuff - aged cheddar, creamy blue cheese, good pudding.

I have been checking out your blog lately and I wanted to say:

Congratulations on 1 month of vegan eating!

Have you noticed any changes in your health? How is your weight loss goal coming along?

Congratulations!!

It can be hard at first, but you're doing great.

And if you do get the craving, I have a great recipe for a vegan cheesecake. :)

You are the first listing on the VeganMofo feed so I gotta ask, are you doing Mofo?

Zoey! Thanks! Its been an intersting ride! Health wise, I haven't once been plagued with heart burn (except when I WAY over did the garlic in a stir fry, I added it twice!) weight wise, I've kind of been babying myself and going the comfort food route with lots of bread, and pb&J for desserts, not good when you're calorie counting.

Elanie! I'll have to check out the video tonight! Any other info related sites you'd care to share?

Evestirs! Thanks! I was vegetarian long ago, so I knew I could handle it, but man, butter is an issue! I love butter and it isn't till you forego it that you realize its in EVERYTHING!

bjorkedoff! I certainly plan on doing the MoFo! I just havent had time to finish my first post on it! Stupid boss who won't let me into my own blog at work!
