Yes Ve Gan

Corny vegan puns, for the win!

So I’m on Day 12 of the Vegan Kickstart and things are going better than I expected.  I’ve always considered myself a pretty healthy eater, but since starting the Kickstart I’ve really upped my game, especially when it comes to snack time.  I’ve always defaulted to either some type of dairy product (yogurt, cheese, etc.) or baked good (cookie, cheez its, etc.) when I’ve needed a nosh, but now that those aren’t viable options I need substitutes that fill the snacking void.  I’ve used my oft neglected food processor to make white bean dip, I’ve delved into the world of coconut milk ice creams, and I’m eating guacamole like it’s my job.  A lot of these snacks require a bit of effort, so  in addition to making healthier choices, I can’t just idly reach for the nearest box of crackers or block of cheese when I think I might want a little nibble.

I’m not sure if I’ve really noticed a lot of physical changes yet, but I have lowered my daily caffeine intake to zero to one cups of coffee without the usual headaches or lethargy that usually happens when I try that.  I have to admit that it’s been easy to not drink as much coffee, because coffee without milk or cream tastes nasty.  Seriously, gross.

We’re a little over half-way through…we’ll see how the next nine days go…
