Vegans, reborn

December 15, 2008

Most of you know (but do you care?) that the Girly Fabu-Palace is a vegetarian household, but the matriarch is getting a little tired of being f-a-t.  That, and she works with a very recipe-minded creative vegan who has been feeding her deeeeelish yummy treats 😀

I was reminded that back in my vegan days I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, and however much I wanted… and my weight never varied more than 5 pounds for years.  Size six, painlessly.

So yesterday The Child and I decided that was the way to go again.  The weight thing is great but really no one in our families has ever died of old age.  Ever.  The Child has diabetes, heart disease, cancer – to name a few – all within 1 or 2 generations.  We have decided to play it safe.  It’s not hard – it can be YUMMY!


We filled the fridge with fruit, veg and whole grains and are looking forward to guilt-free gluttony 😀 Tomorrow night we start after-work/school exercise too.  I figure 30 minutes can’t be that hard, right? 

Oh!  I got a dishwasher!  Check it out!



(actually this pic was HER idea!)



  1. I wish the best for both of my girls. I know that you both can do something for the weight thing if you are BOTH IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL. I know it is not easy, but it will so be worth it.
    I like the dishwasher….hope it does a good job! hehe Love to both of you.

  2. Well, Mom, I’m sure your remember I was vegan for a few years last time – broken only due to advanced pregnancy and feeling deprived of all fun. Once I fell off the dairy wagon it’s been hard to get back on, but now I am. It’s done.

    Funny how after only two days my sweet craving is sharply decreased and I didn’t fall asleep immediately after tucking Haley in to bed. I’m actually all rare’d up for exercise tonight.

    I knew dairy gave me those horrid bumps on my arms but I’m wondering, too, if it was screwing with my energy levels. I don’t remember being so dead to the world before, like I have been the last few years, either. Maybe it is just the vitamin boost I’ve gotten from eating better? Who knows – I just hope it’s here to stay! 😀
