Well, besides the fact that my body is now in shock from the severe lack of Taco Bell in my system; I’m still alive. I get the overwhelming feeling that my stomach thinks we’re homeless now, and feeding off the raw goods of the neighborhood gardens.
I woke up on day 2 with a pretty bad headache, which isn’t that typical for me, since I rarely get them unless I have a fever. After digging around on google for a while, I think I nailed it down to the lack of protein that I was eating. Therefore I started adding some Hemp Protein to my morning smoothie, which has definitely been helping. The only drawback is that my delicious smoothie now tastes all grainy, and looks like I blended up a pound of goose shit. Still tastes pretty good though.
Also on day 2 I tried the brown rice with my veggies, instead of the potato… still tasted like absolute asshole (kinda like Absolute Vodka, but just a lot worse, and you don’t get drunk). The next morning I ran down to Safeway and picked up some:
[list style=”bullet-black”]La Choy Teriyaki Sauce (not that great, will prob try a new brand next time)
Wasabi Sesame Seeds
Sambal Oelek Fresh Ground Chili Paste
and some Soy Sauce [/list]On day 3 I just put my rice in a bowl, stirred in some of the teriyaki sauce, then added the veggies. Also, I added a side of corn, and beans. The meal actually wasn’t too bad. I still noticed that I was reaching for my trusty bottle of sriracha quite a bit to add a little more flavor, so I have a feeling tomorrow we’ll be giving the chili paste a shot to spice things up a tad more.
Beyond all that jazz, snacking kinda sucks as a vegan. The almonds are great, but I can only have so many unless I want to turn into a fat jackoff. The soy beans are actually far better than I ever expected, and very filling, but for a full month? Have a feeling I’ll get sick of them sooner, rather than later. Any ideas on snacks would be great! I wonder if it would be healthy to eat packets of Taco Bell hot sauce as a snack… ANYWAY, below you can find my shitty food for days 2 & 3!
