Week Three: Thursday Only a few more days till a crisp chardonnay.
Wine...yes, I've missed it the most. It's amazing how many things I have to toast in life. We did a champagne toast with the crew today as we finished last show of the season. Neither I nor the Veganista Cleanse Team took a sip. That wasn't as hard as it would have been last week—that same team was at dinner with T.C. (Tom Cruise), where we did have wine. So we felt okay today. This cleanse has provided discipline and restraint. Only once have I craved chicken. Too many lentils that day.
This week was harder without Tal, but we've managed to do okay. Yesterday, I prepared breakfast for the VCT before doing the show. I brought gluten-free waffles and Morningstar vegetable sausage that Tal had left in my freezer from his shopping at Whole Foods. Delicious and easy breezy to prepare.
Eating more consciously now feels like a way of being. I actually think about how my food got to my plate. That was the whole point, right?
Doesn't mean I'm committed to veganism...but I am thinking about what I eat and why. And from that I can never turn back.
