My coffee-less morning led to a headachy afternoon. I even had decaf iced tea at lunch (like a dummy). Other than sodas (which I almost never ever ever drink) I don't know how else to get caffeine. Once I got home, I realized I have decaf tea bags. I guess I'll give up caffeine next? Based on my actions and shopping patterns, I must subconsciously want to? Ludicrous.
|No coffee? You trippin'!|
My research also lead me to a most-unsavory element of veganism: Hidden animal by-products. I mean, WHO looks up all of the ingredients they read? Casein is a milk protein derivative. Char or gelatine is an ingredient derived from animal bone (Gummy Bears/Worms/etc are NOT vegan). Boo.
Here's how my Day Two looked on the plate:
Coffee - Oh, wait, no...my dumbass forgot it on the table.
Wheat toast with peanut butter
What I said "no" to: Duh. My coffee.
Farmer's Market Salad (hold the cheese) with Italian dressing
Pita bread - it was gross.
Fruit I stole from my kids' lunches.
What I said "no" to: Everything else at Sandy McGee's
Skinny Pop Popcorn (Try it, You'll like it)
Hummus (because it's yummus)
Lime Sweet Potato, black beans, and kale
What I said "no" to: Chicken wild rice soup
Two Days. No chicken - Still alive and kickin!
(Hahahahahaha...I'm going to laugh myself right out of this blog post on that one!)
