My newest Challenge: Living vegan

Sometimes it feels as if my body is constantly trying to make me feel miserable. 
And I am really sick of it.

I quit smoking 101 days ago. 

I'm on a healthy workout schedule, even though the freaking herniated discs were and still are a major setback. 

But somehow, no matter what, some shit happens.

I had a big check up at my doc about 3 weeks ago, because I had some health issues, especially being very, very, very, tired throughout the day. The test results came back, and long story short: I had to go on a vegan diet right away. I have a bowel inflammation which could become a chronically if I don't take any action. Both my cholesterol levels (the good and the bad) were HIGH! I'm just glad my food journal showed the doctor that I am far from eating crap 24/7. 

So - I am on this vegan diet now for about 2 weeks. If it would have been ME choosing this lifestyle, I would be ok with it. But no. My body decided. 
I LOVE cheese. I LOVE fish. I LOVE beef. I LOVE chicken! Yoghurt!!!! Cake!! Ice cream... :o( I have to stop now.

I bet you can tell, the first few days were really tough. I had to clean out my fridge and pantry and was left with kinda nothing. I had to start doing research, finding recipes (THANK GOD FOR PINTEREST!!), trying them, liking some, disliking some. Trial and error. Geez, somehow some part of an animal is in every freaking thing you can buy at the grocery store! 

So where are my fellow vegan bloggers? Please stand up and help this lady walking through the valley of the shadow of death!

Tonight I will make Pasta + Zucchini + Mint + Cashew Ricotta Sauce + Almond Parmesan. Fingers crossed!

Yes, I accept this challenge! And guess what, it starts to be a whole lot of fun :o)
