From Texan to Vegan

One Girl's Struggle Through Lent

Day 6: They Call it Stormy Monday…

I thought I’d play with these titles so I googled Monday lyrics” and found some classics but none are more classic to me than The Allman Brothers. They sing *my* song, Melissa. It is *the* song that can always make me feel better no matter how bad the day. On a really bad day, I’ll just put it on repeat for a bit.

So, I had a cheat moment that I both regret and don’t. It was someone’s birthday and I really meant to go to a Vegan bakery to get something for myself over the weekend but they were closed when I went by. I got a Groupon and everything.

I know. Not sufficient. It’s like Dianna Kokoszka says in BOLD, “you can either have excuses or results, but not both”. Le sigh. 40 more days!

Breakfast: Starbucks oatmeal and Tazo teas Calm and Refresh but instead of having water, I have them steam apple juice… it’s my favorite little secret!

Mid-morning: more tea

Lunch: Half of a veggie bowl at The Flame Broiler with brown rice and water

Mid-afternoon: my cheat – a carrot cupcake. It was so good but I don’t like purposefully cheating on Lent. I’ve accidentally done it a couple of times but consciously cheating made me feel bad… but Anna does make the best cupcakes EVER!

Dinner-ish (5pm): the rest of my bowl from lunch

Late Dinner: a multi-fish sushi roll at Miyako with no rice and wrapped in cucumber. I don’t know how they made it work but they did. It was too big, bulky and slippery for me to manage with chopsticks so I ate it with a, gasp, fork. I didn’t miss the rice at all. Oh, and I had some miso soup and edamame and hot tea.
