I apologize to anyone who’s been eagerly awaiting this post. My 30-day vegan challenge technically ended on June 6, but as I said in my last post, I have been so head-spinningly busy that I’m only now able sit to my butt down and write this wrap-up. The experience has opened my eyes and changed me for the better, and I’m still exploring veganism, though if I were to start all over, like a vegan version of Groundhog Day, I would have definitely done it differently. If I could go back in time, here’s what I’d tell myself:
Things went nuts this week. Work projects, commitments, appointments, and errands exploded to a new high. Somewhere in there, I got really sick from a food allergy, and spent the better part of Memorial Day Weekend laid up. So I did not have time for—or feel up to—cooking much at all. Sadly, I’m not the kind of gal who can crack open a can of lentils and call it a night. (I mean, that can’t possibly be appetizing, right?) What would I do for healthy, tasty vegan meals when life whizzed by at a hundred miles an hour?
