What have I done?!

Ten days…

It’s been ten days since I’ve had any of the following:

Has the world come to an end yet?!?!

On May 1, I began a vegan challenge.  One month, no animal products (except honey – I don’t consider bugs animals).  So far, it really hasn’t been too bad.  I might actually go so far as to say it’s been pretty good.

People keep asking me why I decided to do this.  What in the world would make a person take on a challenge like this, especially if it’s not intended to be a long-term switch to veganism?

Honestly, I don’t really have an answer.  I like a challenge.  This seemed like a good one.  But seriously, don’t I have enough challenges as I wrap up my masters program?

Maybe part of me is bored.  Maybe I just need something new.  Maybe I lost my mind.

Whatever the case, I’m one third of the way into this challenge.  If you’re interested, you can follow the rest of the challenge over here!

  1. hey girl 🙂 i’m actually reading a book about a raw food detox diet and pretty certain i’m going to try it… let me know how your experience is with the vegan thing. quite curious!

    1. I did a raw food diet for about a week while I was still in Chicago. I had just completed a 2 or 3 week juice fast and thought it would be easy to transition into raw food. I learned real quick that I like cooked food! But, if it’s just a short term detox type thing, you might have better luck with it than I did. I just know I couldn’t sustain a raw food lifestyle for very long. Vegan, however, is definitely growing on me 🙂 And if you want a great detox… juice fasting is really great!
