One down, 540 to go

January 3, 2011

For every reason under the sun I am re-committing to veganism. I did it for years before and I am doing it again. I am! I am! I am!

The reason first and foremost in my head today is my “health” (because peeps get mad when I talk about my fatass 😉 )

Yesterday I had a very fruitful shopping trip with The Mom, The Maid of Honor/Sister-Cousin and The Child. We found The Dress, and boy is it THE DRESS. *swoon*

It looks pretty freaking fantastic on now, in the current state of affairs. Any healthifying I do between today and 180 days from now will make it look possibly too overwhelmingly amazing that our wedding guests may have to look at me through a pinhole poked in cardboard. Like a solar eclipse, I may very well be too awesome to look at directly.


So when I ordered my lunch today I had that dress in mind.

Rainbow Salad – romaine, carrots, cabbage, corn, beets – hold the blue cheese and candied walnuts – add avocado (miniscule) – with light (again, miniscule) low-fat vinaigrette. Blue cheese and candied walnuts make this a phenomenal and gut-stuffing salad. Ordering it without was the hardest part. I also passed up the free piece of french bread and pat of butter.

It’s still a delicious salad. It will, however, take some time to readjust my pallet to not crave dairy fat. I can do it. My ass and some dairy farm cows’ lives will be more beautiful for it! HA!

So that’s one meal down, and 540 to go before The Big Day. Somehow that makes it easier…

How are your New Years resolutions going so far?


  1. Sounds yummy AND like a great idea. I’m committed to going back to yoga, even the thought is intimidating at the moment but as you say… It’s gotta be done! 🙂

    • I’ll work on the exercise thing soon. Now that Mom has gone home and the Christmas stuff is put away, the bike will go back in the livingroom in front of the TV… (crap!)

  2. Go, go, go girl. That salad looks delicious and even though I am a vegetarian, I almost never eat a salad like that… lettuce bores me to tears most of the time so kudos to you for this and congratulations on your big day coming up and finding THE dress! ^_^

    • In the 7 years I was a vegan I probably ate less than a dozen salads – mostly out of spite. I HATED it when people asked me, “what do you eat – salad??”

      I have developed a deep love of beets and yesterday it sounded good. I am also trying to stay away from bread and pasta for a hot minute so salad was a no-brainer. 🙂

      • Can I forever call you Horsey? Hehe. And yes, the “what do you eat” question oh how to make it go away….

        • You may forever call me Horsey… 😀

  3. I honestly think you’re the funniest woman ever. Let’s meet for coffee sometime, ok? x

    • Next time you’re in the Bay Area let’s wear beautiful hats and sip tea at the Palace Hotel with our pinkies extended.
