I am sorry if you were looking forward to today's coffee story. I did not have a coffee struggle, but I DID have a coffee breakthrough. I got a vanilla soy latte from Starbucks. I'm not the world's biggest fan of soy milk, but it was fantastic. For what it's worth, Starbucks also has an allergy and vegan friendly interactive menu on their website. I got a toasted multi-grain bagel to go with my latte and peanut butter. With a morning like that, who could have a bad day? (I'm hoping my blog is discovered by Sbux and they give me a lifetime of lattes for all of my free plugs!)

I'm really liking this lifestyle change. I had a great realization yesterday compliments of my vendor. He commented on my mood, and that got me thinking (more) about my whole experience. These past four days have been the most guilt-free eating days I can remember since I was maybe a teenager. Not a day has gone by that I thought, "Ugh. I shouldn't have eaten that."
I also think that there is something to be said about a vegetarian diet and cravings. I have not craved my usual junk food. It's very exciting when Eating to Live replaces Living to Eat. No joke. I caught a whiff of some cookies at a meeting, and I was confused by my own reaction. I thought, "Why don't I want one? Come on, Body! Want a cookie so I can tell you NO!" I'd be interested in the feedback on that from a psychologist specializing in food addictions. Not the lack of a craving, but my brain's wanting a craving so I could reject it. Weird.
