- Vegetable Soup
- Sweet Potato Fries (I recommend cutting down on the cayenne)
- Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta
- Tortilla Pie (I used vegan cheese)
- Quinoa and Black Beans
- Roasted Vegetables
- Whole Wheat Pancakes
- Banana Bread (I used regular sugar because I had never even heard of date sugar)
So the question now is where do I stand when it comes to food...well I've decided to go back to being vegan...for another 30 days. Why the time frame on my eating habits. Well I kind of want to do an experiment. WARNING what you are about to read is incredibly vain and if you are already wavering on whether you like me or not this next passage will definitely tip the scales not in my favor. You've been warned. Anyways I noticed that while I was eating a vegan diet, my skin was really good, I mean like no make up kind of good (ok well I still wore mascara because I can't afford Latisse) . And to be real the first week or so I broke out (I like to think my face was detoxing) but after that my skin was great. I've noticed though, over the past month my skin has developed random red patches, and little bumps on my forehead again. And I wonder if this has to do with the dairy that I've allowed back into my diet. So I've decided to test this hypothesis and see if I can get my clear skin back again. You might be wondering am I actually willing to give up a whole food group just to have nice skin? Yes, yes I am. I already admitted that I am vain, and I'm making no effort to change. So come tomorrow I will be back on the vegan train. And I have to say that I'm actually looking forward to. I'm not nearly as intimidated as I once was. And I loved how I felt those 21 days. So here's to scratching off #24. Be vegan for a one week, on my list of 100 things to do (I have not forgotten about that list, it haunts me daily, and reminds me of a time when I did not have a full time job <insert me sighing>). Well thanks for reading, and I look forward to posting more yummy vegan friendly recipes over the next month. Oh and I'll be sure to let you know if my skin improves, or if Jesus strikes me with some plague to teach me to not be vain. Pray for the latter not to happen. Hope y'all enjoyed!
Oh and P.S. I will be on a cheese binge tonight!
