I have a confession to make… maybe even many confessions. This has been the worst holiday for me as a vegan or even as a health-conscious person. After 3 days of eating crappy food that I have tried to ensure (somewhat unsuccessfully) was vegan, I feel pretty much like crap. Yucky yucky yucky. The big one was that I ate an egg the other day, willingly, because I loved them before I went vegan. However, I paid for it later with a severely upset tummy and an even more upset mind. Yesterday I ate a traditional food that my mom made for my grandma and I wanted to try it. It had milk in it and my mouth felt weird afterwards with the back of my throat feeling like wheat paste. I have been thinking about doing a fast starting the day after tomorrow for 4 days (ie. until I go back to work). I am going to drink smoothies tomorrow and just eat raw veggies. Even a few days of that would feel pretty good. I guess we’ll see. I definitely need to get out of this food funk. YUCK!

Today I read the funniest cartoon strip called “Totally Not Vegan.” So I added their RSS feed to this blog. So freaking funny! The latest one is hilarious:

    Glad you liked the comic! We’ve been losing steam a little working on it lately, but it bolsters us seeing more people who like it.

    BTW–both of us (me, the writer/editor, and my husband the artist) who work on TNV have run marathons since being vegan and hope to do another on in 2008.

    Yeah, I love the cartoons – they are so hilarious and true! Keep it up for sure. :o)

    That’s so awesome that you run marathons. Being a vegan athlete seems to be catching on a lot, which is great to see. Thanks for commenting… sorry it took so long.
