This post comes a day late, and I apologize. I was having issues with my internet connection last night.
Today was the first day, and I did fairly well. I had toast for breakfast, some mac 'n cheese (made with daiya vegan cheese) for lunch, and for dinner I had a prepared dinner from Amy's (veggie loaf with vegetables) and 1/4 of a large sweet potato.
I had to stop myself quickly before grabbing a handful of goldfish crackers from the kitchen in the afternoon, but I did stop and that is what counts. Right? Man I'm gonna miss those things! It will be a challenge every day to just remain aware of each and every thing I normally eat without thinking as long as they fit within my usual vegetarian diet. That's the hard part.
Well, I made it through the first day, and I'm proud of myself. It's a small step, but it's one I took, so I'm happy. :)
See you tomorrow!

- I have been an Ovo-Lacto Vegetarian for a few years and am considering making the switch to a full Vegan diet. I decided to become a vegetarian because I could no longer disassociate the meat on my plate from the loving, kind and peaceful animal it had once been. I have always been an animal lover, so I guess this was a natural progression. I am not a diet or nutrition expert by any means, I am just a woman on a mission to eat better, feel better and live better.
