This is who I would look like if I kept eating chips with guacamole.

This is who I will look like if I keep eating chips with guacamole every day.

So I’ve been vegan for about 10 days now and it has actually been easier than I expected.  I can’t say that I’ve been truly faithful to the diet since I had a hiccup one day but I have a legitimate excuse–I was at the Pulitzer Luncheon and everything they served had some sort of animal product in it and there was no way I was going to be fussy in front of these accomplished and talented people.  There’s a time and place for everything people.

Anyway, I think one of the reasons I’ve had the vegan thing easy is that I’ve been OD’ing on chips, guacamole, salsa and refried beans.  I didn’t think I would ever say this but, I need a break from deliciousness by eating nutritious foods.

Week 3 Mission:  reduce the amount of high salt foods and try to work in more veggies.  I only say this because I apparently have a freezer full of them and they need to be consumed and hell if I’m going to continue to pay $3.50 for a bag of tortilla chips.
