7 Day Vegan – Day Eight

7 Day Vegan – Day Eight

The 10k leg of the Auburn Triathlon went well yesterday.  I’ve never done the course before so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I felt strong the whole time.  I think that I can at least say that my performance wasn’t adversely effected by my 7 days of veganism.

So the 7 days are over.  I did it and I feel great.  In fact, I think I’m going to keep it up, mostly.  I’m going to make a few adjustments going forward (at least for a while).  First, I’m going to add back eggs as long as they are from my own backyard chickens.  I know that there are good reasons not to eat these but I think I feel okay about it for now.  Plus, we get about 6 eggs a day and since I’m the primary egg eater in my house, they’re backing up.  Second, I think that I may be a little bit more relaxed when we are on vacation.  When my family and I head to camp this summer, for instance, I’ll won’t beat myself up over having to find vegan options for every meal.

    Does this mean you will still enjoy a milkshake with me every night at Forest Home?

    When our son suggested seeing the movie Forks Over Knives, we shifted gears from mostly vegetarian to “part-time” vegan…okay, darn near 100%. But with chickens in your backyard, how could you neglect the little eggsters? I, too, would break out the scramble now and then!

      Gregg, we may soon be out of chickens. We’ve got a critter (likely a raccoon) that has nabbed 3 chickens in the last 5 days. I’ve tried to figure out how the thing is getting into the run but I’m at a loss. My care for animals is wearing thin for this raccoon. Ever had a raccoon burger?
