Vegan Experiment – Week Two Complete

I’ve reached my half-way point…woohoo!  I went back and read my post on week one of my vegan experiment, and I realized that there was a lot of chatter about cheese in it…I guess I really am a cheese junkie!

Here’s my summary of week 2:

  1. I found that my skin has been really dry over the last couple of weeks.  I think it is just more important for me to pay attention to the fats I am including in my diet since I am so prone to dry skin already.  I tried to add a lot more avocados to my meals (check out my Raw Kale Salad recipe).  I’m also going to try to adding a tablespoon of Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 blend into my morning smoothie to see if that helps.
  2. With the exception of the dry skin issues, my complexion has cleared up quite noticeably.
  3. I’ve dropped four pounds without even really trying – guess my after work habit of snacking on a cheese string and olives was making a difference 🙂
  4. I don’t crave unhealthy food – perhaps my body is getting used to feeling so great.  That being said, I do expect a lot of flavour in all of my meals.
  5. I don’t enjoy Starbucks coffee at all – I am a Peets girl all the way.  BUT, there is a Starbucks close to work that I like to walk over to in the afternoons as an excuse to get away from my desk.  I am hooked on the Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte (unsweetened) with Soy.  By skipping the simple syrup, it is an indulgent, guilt-free beverage :).

I’m ready to face week 3!
