I think that this challenge will open my eyes to a lot of things; however, I do not for see myself stopping meat and dairy all together. I do enjoy milk, cheese etc. but doing this challenge - only one day in, I have realized how I badly I need to give my body more variety.
I often go without the fruit or vegetables because it's boring to just boil frozen carrots and broccoli and top it with cheese whiz. But, so far I have realized that vegetables are important and don't have to be boring.
Today I prepared myself three meals that were tasty and made me feel great - as in I had no regret. I even went to the gym today with energy to run. Okay, this totally could be in my head, I mean it's not like eating healthy one day can benefit you that much, but whether or not it's in your head or real - if it's a healthy pursuit then let's dream!
I know that my friend Brian has hopped on board with the Veganism; however, he was out of ideas as to what to prepare! I think this challenge has allowed me to think outside the box - so for the first time I made sweet potato fries which I rolled in extra virgin olive oil and baked in the oven and they were delicious!
Hopefully throughout the week I can become more creative with my food and enjoy more of the pretty colours food has to offer - often our plates look way too bland.
So, I look forward to tomorrow - see what it brings me!
