The Vegan Challenge Day 3

I'm three days into my self-imposed "vegan challenge" and, frankly, I'm not missing the meat, fish, dairy or eggs at all. Mind you, I wouldn't make being a vegan a permanent life-style choice, but for a short cleanse, it works well.

My husband hasn't even noticed that I'm cooking vegan for dinner. Last night I made black-bean veggie burgers with guacamole--a recipe I've been working on for a couple of months--and he loved them so much, he took a "burger" for lunch and asked that I make them again soon.

The plus side for me is that I feel great. As I wrote the other day, I was feeling the Winter doldrums early this year, and thought a simple cleanse prior to the holidays was a good idea. No sugar, no refined carbs and no meat, fish, dairy or eggs. Just lots of fresh veggies, fruit and whole grains.

Three days in and I feel marvelous. So great, I think I'll go vegan again next week.
